Peripheral Neuropathy

IMAGINE YOUR FEET WITHOUT PAIN AND NUMBNESS

  • New Diabetic and Non-Diabetic Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy
  • Eliminate Pain and Restore Sensation Through Three Innovative Treatments

ELECTRO STIMULATION

MicroVAS Treatments help reverse peripheral neuropathy and improve wound healing.

Non-invasive physical medicine has many applications for healing, through 4 simple methods:

1. Increased Circulation

Elevates tissue oxygenation thus aiding in: collagen formation; stimulates fibroblasts and osteoblasts to promote and accelerate healing of wounds and bone; rebuilds blood vessels; and perfuses the blood carrying oxygen to the capillary beds.

2. Involuntary Exercise

Promotes Muscle building and engagement of muscles, tendons and ligaments. Aids in flexion, extension, and range of motion, while elevating resting metabolism.

3. Lymphatic Drainage

Boost lymphatic drainage which decompresses nerves, relieves swelling and inflammation, and reduces pain.

4. Pain Management

Pain Management is provided by the blocking of neurological transmission of pain signals and stimulation of endorphins.

The MicroVAS Systems provide neurovascular therapy. It does this by using a powerful ionic waveform that goes completely through the entire limb or body to create deep-layered, pulsed muscle contractions, which stimulate therapeutic angiogenesis. Not only does it increase cellular oxygen levels during treatment, but the levels are uniquely elevated after therapy, providing sustained results.

NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS – METANX®

Traditional over-the-counter vitamins are synthetic forms of the nutrients found in nature. This is the case for common

  1. Vitamins such as folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12. Each of these must be converted into their natural, active forms before they can actually be used by the body’s cells for such vital functions as DNA production, cell reproduction and homocysteine metabolism.

    Metanx® provides the nutritional requirements needed by patients to restore the metabolic processes associated with neuropathy to:

    1. Maintain blood flow in the blood vessels that carry the nutrients and oxygen to your nerves.
    2. Provide the required nutrients to help facilitate nerve repair including production of the myelin sheath, a substance that insulates and protects nerve fibers.

As a result, Patients have seen improvements in TOTAL symptoms including

  1. Numbness
  2. Tingling
  3. Aching Pain
  4. Burning Pain
  5. Shooting Pain
  6. Extreme Sensitivity to Light Touch
* Metanx is available only by prescription through Brand Direct Health https://www.branddirecthealth.com

Get Back on Your Feet With Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments in Orange County

The nerves are important tools for transmitting information between the body and brain. They help us sense the world around us so we can act accordingly when needed. Neuropathy, or nerve damage, can throw a big wrench into this communications network, like having a really bad phone line drowning in static. The feet, given how they’re constantly in contact with the environment around us, can particularly suffer from this condition, and that can have serious consequences.

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

Nerve damage can come from a variety of sources, but among the most common and widespread is diabetes. This is believed to be due to high blood sugar interfering with and degrading sensitive nerve fibers. Diabetes also tends to restrict circulation, which can contribute to the destruction of nerves as they fail to receive proper amounts of oxygen and nutrients in the blood. Other, less common causes of neuropathy in the feet can include infections, exposure to toxins, trauma, or genetic conditions.

What Does Peripheral Neuropathy Feel Like?

Symptoms of nerve damage can vary depending on the severity of the condition. Milder cases may feel more of an occasional tingling—more often at night—that is annoying but not actually painful. This tingling might begin to be accompanied by burning or shooting pains in the feet, and even some numbness in the toes. Pain tends to decrease as the condition progresses, but is replaced more and more with numbness. This is quite serious, as not only can a loss of sensation in the feet cause problems with balance, it can prevent the detection of wounds and sores on the feet. Left unchecked, minor cuts and irritations can turn into large, open wounds, which can then become infected enough to possibly require amputation of the foot.

Treatment for Nerves

The best time to begin addressing nerve damage, of course, is earlier on when it can still be felt. The sooner neuropathy is identified and addressed, the better the chances of slowing or stopping its progression and preventing its more dangerous effects. There are several means of providing treatment for nerve pain and deterioration. Here at California Foot and Ankle Institute, MicroVAS neurovascular treatment has seen success in many patients. This form of therapy works by sending powerful ionic waves through the limb or body, causing deep-layered contractions of muscles. This aids in increasing circulation and oxygen to needed areas, accelerating healing, elevating metabolism, and increasing lymphatic drainage to reduce pain and swelling. These results remain elevated for a sustained amount of time following treatment, as well.Decompression Surgery of the Nerves  Additional forms of treatment include the use of nutritional supplements such as Metanx and Frezzor. These can help provide the nutritional requirements that help maintain healthy blood flow and increase production of the myelin sheath, the substance that insulates and protects nerves. In some cases, more conservative forms of treatment will not prove effective enough. It is then when surgery might fall under consideration. Decompression surgery can be performed on nerves on an outpatient basis. Decompression can help relieve nerves affected by a variety of conditions including diabetes, injuries, or entrapment, patients are permitted to walk immediately after the procedure.
