If you are tired of taking endless prescription pain killers for your peripheral neuropathy, we have great news for you!
At St. Augustine Spine Center we have developed a drug-free program utilizing multiple therapies to relieve your symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.
The foundation of this highly successful treatment regimen is Class IV Laser Therapy. Our program also incorporates several other modalities to improve nerve function, some of which include vibration therapy, balance training, and soft tissue mobilization.
We also utilize nutritional support, when necessary, to help address vitamin deficiencies and improve circulation. With this multi-faceted approach, we are able to customize the program to your individual needs and achieve the most effective results in relieving your symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.
During each painless treatment, laser energy increases circulation, speeds up cellular energy production, and draws water, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged area. This creates an optimal healing environment that helps to reduce pain, inflammation, burning, tingling, and numbness, and improves the ability to feel sensations.
Neuropathy is a progressive condition, meaning it tends to get worse with time. If left untreated for too long, the nerve damage can reach a point where there is simply nothing that can be done. This is why early detection and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is critical to getting the best results.
