RED LIGHT RELIEF: New Hope for Neuropathy Sufferers

Did you know that there are 20 million Americans suffering from some form of Peripheral Neuropathy (P.N.)? A study by Mayo Clinic found that P.N. is sensory damage to the small nerve fibers in the hands and the feet usually caused by trauma or chemical agents such as excessive glucose, statin drugs, chemotherapy, nicotine, alcohol, or exposure to other toxic chemicals.

Symptoms can begin almost without notice and gradual move from the toes to the feet and legs and eventually to the hands and arms. There can be profound numbness and/or tingling or a feeling of burning, sometimes accompanied by what is called “restless leg syndrome.” Other symptoms may include extreme sensitivity to touch and the feeling of having stones in your shoes when standing. These symptoms can all lead to a loss of coordination or balance as the brain loses normal communication with the feet.

Many patients have had to stop driving due to the inability of pressing on the gas or brake pedal. Dr. J.L. Greer D.C. Chiropractor at Sunrise  Chiropractic, serving Tucson for over 20 years and an affiliate of the Neuropathy Treatment Centers of America, (NeuroTCA) states that treatment options have largely centered on drug therapy. “People either don’t respond well to current treatment or they develop additional symptoms from side effects of the medications they are given to treat the symptoms.”

We now have the results of over ten years of research and there is good news. Using this research the NeuroTCA has seen a 91% satisfaction rate for helping patients with the pain associated with neuropathy. Our treatment is painless, non-invasive and is effective in helping to restore function in all types of neuropathy without the side effects of drugs or surgery.

When patients visit our office, they are a given a special exam to determine the function of their nerves in the legs, feet, toes and hands. If the exam reveals neuropathy, a care plan is devised to rehabilitate the nerves and reduce discomfort. “We have seen this treatment changing people’s lives, with most our patients getting good results. Unfortunately, our treatment cannot help everyone. Our specific exam is given to see if we can help. ” Dr. Greer said. “People suffering from peripheral neuropathy pain can have a low quality of life as the pain touches every aspect of their existence.”

 

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

There are many factors that can cause peripheral neuropathies, so it is often difficult to pinpoint the origin. Neuropathies occur by one of three methods:

  • Acquired neuropathies are caused by environmental factors such as toxins, trauma, illness, or infection. Known causes of acquired neuropathies include:
  • Diabetes
  • Several rare inherited diseases
  • Alcoholism
  • Poor nutrition or vitamin deficiency
  • Herniated discs in the back
  • Certain kinds of cancer
  • Conditions where nerves are mistakenly attacked by the body’s own immune system or damaged by an overaggressive response to injury
  • Certain medications Cholesterol Statin are a major cause
  • Kidney or thyroid disease
  • Infections such as Lyme disease, shingles, or AIDS
  • Hereditary neuropathies are not as common. Hereditary neuropathies are diseases of the peripheral nerves that are genetically passed from parent to child. The most common of these is Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1. It is characterized by weakness in the legs and, to a lesser degree, the arms -- symptoms that usually appear between mid-childhood and age 30. This disease is caused by degeneration of the insulation that normally surrounds the nerves and helps them conduct the electrical impulses needed for them to trigger muscle movement.
  • Idiopathic neuropathies are from an unknown cause. As many as one-third of all neuropathies are classified in this way.
