neuropathy

Neuropathy is a disorder that occurs when nerves of the peripheral nervous system are damaged. Neuropathy usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. It can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic disorders, and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes.

Neuropathy can affect nerves that control muscle movement (motor nerves) and those that detect sensations such as coldness or pain (sensory nerves). Pain from peripheral neuropathy is often described as a tingling or burning sensation. There is no specific length of time that the pain exists, but symptoms often improve with time as well as with the proper treatment. Since neuropathy affects the ability to feel, it can also cause balance problems leading to injury from falling.

Current Treatment for Neuropathy include Drug Therapies using Lyrica, Neurontin, or Cymbalta, all of which are associated with significant side effects and are used in almost toxic doses. Medical devices like Anodyne (Red Light) therapy offer a non-invasive alternative, but none offer the results associated with Laser Therapy.
