There is no one way to treat peripheral neuropathy.
Treatment options are determined based on the type of pain experienced by the patient and how they prefer to manage it.
Some treatment options that are commonly offered, like over-the-counter pain medication, are prescribed to treat the pain only. These mask the symptoms until they progress but are not effective in treating the source.
At Hiler Chiropractic and Neurology / Feel Amazing Institute, our approach is different.
Our stem cell therapy for peripheral neuropathy is a safe and non-invasive option we offer that works to rebuild the damaged cells.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder characterized by damaged nerves. As a result, these nerves will no longer be able to send messages from the brain to the rest of the body, or for the body to the brain as normal.
Typically, these damaged nerves are the main source of communication between the brain and the spinal cord to your appendages. Impairment of these nerves causes sensory changes and loss in the hands, arms, feet and legs.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
Every condition is different. Some people affected by this disorder notice a numb sensation or pain that starts in their fingers and toes. This can quickly spread to include their arms and legs.
Many patients describe their pain as an invisible glove or sock that they cannot take off.
Other common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:
- Sensory loss
- Tingling and numbness
- Burning sensation
- Sharp, electric pains
- Loss of balance
- Impaired movement of the arms and legs
- Sensitivity to touch
- Difficulty sleeping
The pain may not always be constant, but even sporadic symptoms disrupt daily activities.
The causes of peripheral neuropathy range from lifestyle choices to side effects from medications and diseases. In some cases, the cause is unknown, or idiopathic. Diabetes in another common cause of peripheral neuropathy, affecting between one-third and one-half of those diagnosed with this type of pain.
How We Approach Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
We work with each individual patient to determine their road to recovery. Our treatment options are flexible, and we can customize them to every patient’s unique condition.
Stem Cell Therapy
The term stem cell therapy may seem intimidating to those who don’t understand it.
Stem cells can be thought of as building blocks. Unlike other cells, they have the capability to regenerate and can be used to repair damaged tissue or create new healthy tissue cells.
To treat peripheral neuropathy, we use stem cells from the umbilical cord, which we prefer because of their ability to repair and regenerate quickly. These cells, which are harvested from healthy donors under strict FDA guidelines, also work to reduce pain due to their anti-inflammatory capabilities.
Umbilical stem cell therapy is a cost effective and non-invasive procedure. It only takes one treatment that lasts about thirty minutes as opposed to spending hours in therapy.
