If you Suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy, Here’s How Laser Therapy can Help

Do you regularly find yourself feeling that uncomfortable, even painful, pins and needles sensation in your hands, feet, arms, or legs? How about a stabbing or throbbing sensation—or the complete opposite, total numbness?

You could be suffering from peripheral neuropathy, a condition that results from damage to the peripheral nerves. These are the nerves throughout your body that communicate sensory signals to your central nervous system, which includes your brain and spinal cord. 

We know how painful it is—and how frustrating it can be to take pill after pill, OTC or prescription, just to get some temporary relief from the pain. If you’re dealing with chronic peripheral neuropathy, laser therapy could provide the long-lasting relief you need.

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy can stem from a variety of causes. These include:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Bone marrow disorders
  • Infections like Lyme disease, Hepatitis B and C, and HIV
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Exposure to toxic substances
  • Alcohol addiction
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Certain medications, like those used in chemotherapy
  • Injuries to the affected areas

And sometimes, peripheral neuropathy is completely idiopathic. This simply means there’s no clear cause for the symptoms. 

In any case, untreated peripheral neuropathy can become increasingly persistent, making it difficult or even impossible for the sufferer to go about their daily routine. And when it’s left untreated over time, it can potentially become so severe that it’s virtually impossible to treat effectively.

How do we treat Peripheral Neuropathy?

To treat patients with peripheral neuropathy, our go-to treatment strategy is laser therapy. Laser therapy focuses on improving and revitalizing damaged nerves. It has become an increasingly common solution in recent years because it is a noninvasive, yet very effective way to treat this condition.

People suffering from peripheral neuropathy often respond well to laser therapy treatment because it focuses on their chronic pain. Patients who have undergone laser therapy have shown a tremendous reduction in symptoms with each session, and a significant improvement of the use of their extremities and quality of life. 

Our team treats patients holistically, which means we treat the whole body rather than only treating the affected area. So, if you suffer from additional pain, stiffness or soreness beyond your peripheral neuropathy symptoms, you could also see relief from other afflictions while working with us.

Keep in mind, the treatments we offer aren’t the best choice for every kind of peripheral neuropathy. If you’re suffering from this condition because of chemotherapy drugs, alcohol addiction or as the result of an injury, you’re likely to be the ideal candidate for our skilled providers and the care they offer. If your peripheral neuropathy is the result of something else, like a hereditary condition, another treatment strategy might be most effective for you—and we’re happy to work with you to assess your case and help you make that decision.
