Damage to the nerves, such as in peripheral neuropathy often causes 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 become diseased they shrivel up which causes the nerves to not get the nutrients to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause you to have balance problems, pain, numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms.
Each patient will describe their pain in their own individual language of “pain”. This can easily confuse a doctor not trained in the recognition and treatment of these patients. The patient usually continues to suffer, going from doctor to doctor while stronger medications are prescribed.
Some people may eventually become unable to walk at all. Others start with a tingling, pin pricking feeling that turns into deep sharp stabbing pains and burning electric shocks. These debilitating problems can also be at their worst at night while trying to get to sleep, because the pain never goes away.
Currently, traditional medicine has no cure for most cases of nerve pain or neuropathy. The extremely powerful drugs dispensed to patients do not treat the nerve damage. They numb the brain to numb the pain. Most patients cannot tolerate a drugged existence but feel they have no other option against this horrifying pain.
Rejuvagen Takes a Strategic Approach to Peripheral Neuropathy
- We utilize a thorough health evaluation and functional lab testing to determine the underlying causes of your neurological challenges, whether physical, chemical, emotional, or microbial.
- We do not mask pain with pain medications which dull your senses to the pain.
- Specialized in-office therapies are used to improve blood flow, improve nerve function, increase circulation and help modulate pain. Additional therapies are used in the patient’s home to continue progress between office visits.
- As the inflammatory cascade naturally calms and nerve function returns, we continue to support the patient with recommended diet and lifestyle modifications and nutraceutical support to restore cellular function, address micronutrient deficiencies and improve overall health and quality of life.
