Welcome to a diagnostic and therapeutic approach that leaves no stone unturned when it comes to helping our patients find relief. Our clinically proven “neuropathy relief program” has helped even the most chronic peripheral neuropathy sufferer. This system of care has helped thousands of people across the country and is now available in Wake Forest.
Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body. Peripheral nerves also send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold or a finger is burned.
Damage to the peripheral nervous system interferes with these vital connections. Like poor connection to a cell phone tower, peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
Patients with peripheral neuropathy often experience chronic tingling, numbness, weakness, or burning pain. They often find it difficult to walk, difficult to sense if they are going down stairs properly, or to know if they have injured the affected area. These patients generally feel miserable because of the chronic pain they experience.
A Comprehensive Approach to Peripheral Neuropathy
We take a comprehensive approach to helping our patients with peripheral neuropathy. Not only do we treat the local area affected by using cutting edge therapy, addressing metabolic conditions (such as blood sugar problems), but we also treat areas in the brain responsible to receiving these messages from the body.
It is common that peripheral nerve damage will lead to functional changes in the brain! You MUST address all areas in order to get the BEST OUTCOMES.
A ‘road map’ of your entire body exists in the brain. Each body area (foot, hand, face, etc.) is represented in a part of the brain called the parietal lobe. If poor nerve signals come into the brain because of peripheral neuropathy, this can lead to problems in the brain itself.
Although you might start out with peripheral neuropathy, the longer you have this condition the more likely you’ll experience issues higher up into areas of the brain. That is why damage to the peripheral nerves is just part of the story and why treating just the local area can lead to discouraging short-term results.
We Offer a Unique Non-Drug Approach
It all starts with a unique exam based on the Toronto Clinical Scoring System. This exam scores the health or sickness or your nerves. We can objectively demonstrate where you are and how you are improving using unique combinations of clinically proven therapies.
Our Treatment Approach
First you should know that we address each person as an individual using both metabolic and neurologic strategies. This is what we mean by “no stone is left unturned” when it comes to helping our patients. You are not looking to try an old, previously unsuccessful treatment again. You want relief and you want results!
We get results by examining you with a fresh set of diagnostic and therapeutic eyes. We use a combination of objective blood work results to base our clinical nutrition recommendations, Hako Med for neuropathy stimulation, unilateral spinal adjusting, robotic class 4 laser, whole body vibration, spinal decompression and other brain-based therapies geared toward your specific condition to address peripheral neuropathy in a very dynamic way.
These protocols are designed to give you every chance possible to feel better. Why not restore normal nerve communication, function and health by healing from the inside out? No matter what the condition, it is imperative that we perform a thorough case history, review previous diagnostic test results and an examination to determine the exact nature of the patient’s condition.
