Treating Peripheral Neuropathy
Once peripheral neuropathy has been diagnosed, the goal of treatment is to effectively manage the condition as well as reduce the pain associated with it. Although pain medication, hands-on physical therapy, and surgical procedures are more commonly known treatment options—advanced pain management techniques offer non-invasive alternatives.
Non-Invasive Treatment Options
While most treatments for peripheral neuropathy simply reduce the pain and inflammation associated with the condition, our specialists at ReGen Medical Dallas use state-of-the-art technology to treat the source of the issue, helping the body to stimulate its own healing process.
Advanced pain management techniques can include:
High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT)
High Intensity Laser Therapy (HILT) is an FDA-cleared treatment that uses light energy to penetrate soft tissue, muscles, and bone in order to stimulate the healing process at a cellular level.
The source of the pain associated with peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage. When you experience nerve pain, your nerves send signals to interneurons, which then record the pain. When HILT is administered, the lasers penetrate deep into the interneurons and “reset” that pain memory, resulting in pain suppression.
When tissues are exposed to certain wavelengths of light, enzymes are able to absorb that energy, stimulating the production of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). In turn, laser stimulation helps the body to produce the necessary energy for nerve regeneration and inflammation reduction.
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)
Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT), also known as Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyAct), uses soundwaves to relieve tension in stiff joints, muscles, and tendons.
According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information, sonic pulses with high energy impact are able to cause biochemical changes in the targeted tissues, resulting in localized cell regeneration, increased blood flow, and reduced inflammation.
