Is there an effective treatment for neuropathy pain?
The important news is pain from peripheral neuropathy can be relieved without resorting to pain medication or surgery, and if diagnosed early, the condition can often be controlled.
Treatment options have historically included only medications but today with the advent of electro-therapeutic treatment and class IV therapeutic laser, we now have effective therapeutic options. Electro-therapeutic treatment and class IV therapeutic laser are pain-free therapeutic treatments that provide mild senses of vibration that can be found pleasurable and even relaxing. These sensations stimulate the nerves and circulation to cause pain reduction as well as healing.
What is peripheral neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy (PN) is a disorder of the peripheral nerves - the motor, sensory and autonomic nerves that connect the spinal cord to muscles, skin and internal organs. The condition usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, tingling, burning, and pain.
The disease adversely affects balance, making people with peripheral neuropathy 15 times more likely to fall than the general public. PN can take a variable course, coming and going slowly, progressing over the years or it can become severe and debilitating very quickly.
What causes peripheral neuropathy?
Neuropathy has many causes. The best known cause is diabetes, though chemotherapy, alcohol, drugs (including certain prescription medications), environmental toxins, genetics, and trauma can also trigger the disease.
