NEWS: Neuropathy Breakthrough in Franklin
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow.
As the blood vessels that surround the nerves degenerate, they shrivel up and starve the nerves. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause balance problems, pain, numbness, tingling, burning, etc..
Medical doctors frequently tell the patient to just live with the problem or try seemingly endless drugs…many with serious side-effects. There is now a facility right here in Franklin that offers hope without pain, surgery or drugs.
In order to effectively treat neuropathy, three factors must be determined. 1) What is the underlying cause? 2) How much nerve damage has been sustained? 3) How much treatment will be required?
The treatment that is provided has three main goals: 1) Increase blood flow 2) Stimulate small fiber nerves 3) Decrease brain-based pain
The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes a specialized low level light therapy (not to be confused with laser therapy) using light emitting diode technology. This technology was created by NASA to assist in increasing blood flow. The light therapy stimulates the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. Low level light therapy is much like watering a plant and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.
The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as there has not been at least 85% sustained nerve damage there is hope!
Dr. Dwaine Allison, D.C. will do a consultation and exam to determine the extent of the nerve damage. This examination will consist of a detailed sensory evaluation and a detailed analysis of the findings of your neuropathy.
