Neuropathy Relief

Understanding Neuropathy and Neuropathic Pain

At Vanguard Spine and Sport, we know that each person’s neuropathic pain and treatment needs are unique, which is why we focus on a holistic approach to neuropathy care and getting to the “Why?” behind every patient’s pain.

Peripheral neuropathy involves nerve damage that leads to symptoms like weakness, a burning sensation, numbness, tingling, and severe issues with balance. Various factors can cause this nerve damage, including poor blood circulation to the nerves, high blood sugar levels (as seen in diabetes), ongoing infections, exposure to pesticides, and certain genetic factors.

The cause of neuropathic pain may vary greatly among individuals, but identifying the specific cause of your neuropathy is essential for healing the affected nerves and getting back to an optimized lifestyle free from pain.

Our Approach to Neuropathy Care

Vanguard Spine & Sport offers our Houston-area patients a new, non-surgical therapy with no medications that utilizes innovative medical treatments to help heal your nerves and eliminate your neuropathic pain. Our team of specialists administers a comprehensive treatment method with four goals for fast, effective neuropathy relief:

  1. Optimize the environment within the body for nerve healing.
  2. Increase blood flow to the nerves.
  3. Stimulate the nerves that are damaged to reduce pain and improve balance.
  4. Decrease sensations of pain and discomfort.

By using our exclusive treatment approach to stimulate blood flow to the nerves in the feet and hands, we can start to rejuvenate nerves naturally and return the affected areas back to optimal health with no surgery and no addictive pain medications.

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Commonly, individuals with peripheral neuropathy experience symptoms including:

  • Numbness or Tingling
  • Sensations of Burning Pain
  • Uncommon or diminished sensations
  • Muscular weakness
  • Sharp, Piercing Pain
  • Issues with Balance

The most frequently impacted areas include:

  • Feet and Toes: Neuropathy often first manifests in the feet. Symptoms can include numbness, tingling, burning pain, and sensitivity to touch. This can lead to difficulty in walking or the sensation of wearing an invisible sock or glove.
  • Hands and Fingers: Similar to the feet, the hands and fingers are also commonly affected. Symptoms in the hands can impact daily activities like writing, typing, or holding objects.
  • Legs: The legs, especially the lower legs, can experience symptoms of neuropathy, including muscle weakness, cramps, and pain. This might affect mobility and balance.
  • Arms: While less common than the legs, the arms can also be affected, potentially leading to weakness and dexterity issues.

4 Essential Elements of Our Neuropathic Treatment

Infared Electromagnetic Therapy:

We utilize innovative Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT) as a key method to enhance blood circulation and foster nerve repair. This light therapy stimulates Vasoendothelial Growth (VEGF), crucial for angiogenesis, the formation of new blood vessels. These new vessels develop around the peripheral nerves, supplying essential nutrients for their healing and regeneration. This technology boasts a remarkable 97% success rate in treating peripheral neuropathy.

Digital Electrotherapeutic Stimulation

Our cutting-edge digital electrotherapeutic stimulation, known as Nerve Re-Education, plays a vital role in nerve growth. This method is recognized and employed by the Cancer Centers of America to aid those undergoing chemotherapy in nerve rebuilding. An advantage of Nerve Re-Education is its feasibility for home use, allowing daily therapy. Patients often experience immediate benefits in pain relief and the restoration of normal sensation.

Sophisticated Nutritional Therapy

Optimal nerve and tissue repair require proper nutrition, which is a critical component of our approach. Our Sophisticated Nutritional Therapies are tailored to expedite the healing process. They target the intricate dynamics of inflammation, blood flow, and the availability of bioavailable nitric oxide, thereby complementing our other treatment strategies.

Regular Clinic Visits and Online Educational Support

Our treatment plan is complemented by weekly in-clinic visits, which work in conjunction with your at-home infrared electromagnetic and electrostimulation therapies. These in-clinic sessions are integral to achieving the best patient outcomes. Alongside these visits, we provide comprehensive online educational resources, ensuring that each crucial aspect of our protocol contributes effectively to your recovery.
