How Do We Heal Nerves?

First, we need to be clear about something, if a nerve is severed, we aren’t going to be able to grow it back. Science some day may be able to, but not yet. However, the day the day to heal nerves that have been damaged is already here!

In neuropathy, nerves are damaged because they aren’t receiving the proper blood flow because the vessels that feed the nerves are slowly dying off. Below is the progression from a normal nerve to one that has been severely damaged by the dying off of the blood vessels.

They typical treatment for neuropathy is medications that work to dull they symptoms, they don’t do anything to increase blood flow. Can you understand why they aren’t helpful in the long term and eventually fail? The only way to improve the nerves is to increase blood flood. So how do we do that?

There are 3 parts to our treatment of neuropathy:

1. We increase blood flood to the nerves using a cutting edge technology “low level light therapy” that was developed by NASA and approved by the FDA over 20 years ago in 2001! NASA was trying to find a way to heal wounds and space and found this therapy create new blood vessels, process called “angiogenesis”.

2. The next is neuromodulation. Your nerves have been misfiring and sending the wrong messages to your brain. What this process does is “reprogram” the nerves to send the correct message to your brain so you don’t keep suffering for burning, tingling and other symptoms while your nerves heal.

3. Last is nutritional therapy. As your body heals, we need to support it through the process as well as give it the building blocks it will need for the increased nerve growth. Also, as many patients suffering from neuropathy will have chronic inflammatory states, addressing and supporting the you as we work to stop the inflammation helps not just your feet but your entire body (the lack of blood flow may be causing symptoms just in your feet, but its also happening inyour brain, your heart, your lungs and everywhere else).

4. In office protocols. Yes, we only said 3 steps but for some patients in needs of more care we also have office visits that will work to decrease pain, improve balance, mobility and allow them to get moving faster.

The biggest problem we see with neuropathy patients is that they wait to long and the damage has gone to far. Don’t suffer any longer, make an appointment today to see if we can help.
