Numbness/ Tingling feet or a burning sensation is annoying, but can also cause problems such as falling or wounds that won't heal. The effects of neuropathy can be devastating and reduce the quality of life.
If you notice the feeling of numbness/ tingling and burning, don’t ignore it. Seek help immediately. The sooner you seek treatment for a burning skin sensation, the greater the likelihood of a successful outcome. We have new technologies that actually regenerate nerve endings!
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where nerves are damaged, causing weakness, burning pain, numbness, tingling, and debilitating balance problems. The damage to the nerves can be caused by many different problems in the body. Poor blood flow to the nerves, toxic levels of sugar in the blood (diabetes), chronic infections, pesticide exposure, and genetic variants are a few of the causes of this debilitating condition. The cause is different for every patient, and it must be discovered to help the nerves heal.
Auto-immune diseases are diseases where the immune system mistakenly starts to attack the body. That’s right! Many times the immune system is actually killing the nerves of peripheral neuropathy sufferers. This is why thorough testing is vitally important in helping peripheral neuropathy.
Can peripheral nerves heal?
Yes! It is well established in the scientific literature that peripheral nerves can and do heal. The key issue is that not only do we need to get the nerves healing, but we have to stop whatever is causing the nerve damage in the first place. When the underlying cause of the neuropathy is discovered and proper support for the nerves is provided, it optimizes the ability for the nerves to heal. In order to effectively heal nerve damage, four factors must be determined.
- What is the underlying cause of the nerve damage?
- How severe is the nerve damage?
- What types of nerve fibers are damaged?
How much treatment will the nerves require to heal?
This will be dependent on the degree of nerve damage and what types of fibers are damaged.
Our treatment has 4 main goals:
- Optimize the environment within the body for nerve healing.
- Increase blood flow to the nerves.
- Stimulate the nerves that are damaged (small fiber, large diameter, or motor nerves) to reduce pain and improve balance.
- Decrease brain-based pain.
Our exclusive treatment system increases blood flow to the nerves in the feet and/or hands, which helps to rejuvenate nerves naturally and has returned many of our patient’s feet and/or hands to normal (Be sure to check our our TESTIMONIALS!) No surgery. No addictive medications.
The cost will vary for each individual, and there is no way to make an estimated quote prior to Dr. Sims' examination of your condition.
