Neuropathy in Glendale

Chiropractic Glendale AZ Neuropathy

Do you have peripheral neuropathy in Glendale? Neuropathy is more common than you might think! We estimate that more than 20 million people in our country are suffering with some sort of neuropathy. It typically affects older adults; however can strike at any age. Peripheral neuropathy affects the motor and sensory nerves which help to connect your spinal cord to the rest of your organs, muscles and your skin. Damage to your peripheral nerves often causes weakness, numbness, and pain; usually in your hands and feet. The symptoms come and go in some individuals while others say it’s severe and debilitating. The important aspect is that if diagnosed early, neuropathy can be controlled!

Even though it seems like a “new” condition, peripheral neuropathy has been around for years. However, it has not been properly diagnosed until recently. It is commonly misdiagnosed as just a side effect of other diseases like diabetes, cancer and kidney failure. Unfortunately, the development of treatments for neuropathy has been slow going.


Understanding Neuropathy in Glendale

Throughout the year, we will offer FREE seminars where individuals can learn how to get back to doing the things they love with our safe, effective, non-surgical, neuropathy treatment program.

Attendees will learn:

  • The underlying causes of peripheral neuropathy and the key to prevention.
  • The Nobel prize-winning discovery that every neuropathy patient MUST know.
  • How peripheral neuropathy is diagnosed and when it can be treated.
  • 3 simple changes to your diet that can help prevent peripheral neuropathy from developing
  • Advanced diagnostic testing to help determine if your condition can be treated.
  • A simple home therapy that is used by some of the largest hospitals in the United States to treat certain types of neuropathy.

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

Neuropathy can be caused by many things, but more than 30 percent of those diagnosed with it are told it is from an unknown cause. Diabetes causes another 30 percent of cases. The remainder of cases are caused by autoimmune disorders, toxins, infections, tumors, heredity or imbalances of nutrition.

Neuropathy affects the nerves throughout the body, which control sensations like cold or pain, as well as the internal organs like the heart, bladder, intestines and more! It usually gives off a pain described as burning or tingling in the hands and feet.

Here at Arizona Family Wellness, we help patients with neuropathy by using an innovative and systematic approach to treatment that gets them back to a healthy, happy life. If other treatments or medications haven’t worked for you, please know there are other options! It’s possible you are a good fit for our program! The techniques we use address the neurological, metabolic, and nutritional factors of neuropathy.


Victim Of Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition affecting more than 20 million Americans and the condition is growing rapidly. Are you one of the millions of Americans that suffers from peripheral neuropathy? Have you been told you have to deal with it or just live with it? Were you told you will have to rely on Gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, injections or other off label drugs with serious side effects?

At Arizona Family Wellness, we are happy to report that there are other options for neuropathy care. In clinics across the country, including ours, we have developed a precise and effective system treating peripheral neuropathy. This program is helping thousands of people across the US with this debilitating condition. We have a 90-95% success rate with neuropathy by using the following 3 steps:

  1. Increase blood flow
  2. Educate small fiber nerves
  3. Decrease pain signals

Natural Solution: No Drugs, Surgeries, or Injuries

The interventions and technology we use are designed to address the multiple factors that can contribute to the development of neuropathy, and provide ongoing relief for our patients. Given that peripheral neuropathy almost always has a vascular component, the group of therapies we utilize are designed to improve nitric oxide production, nerve re-education, angiogenesis, and increase circulation to the extremities.

One way we increase blood flow is by using cutting-edge technology such as low level light therapy, also known as LLLT. The technology was discovered by NASA for treating wounds in space. LLLT was approved by the FDA in 2001 and is at the forefront of neuropathy treatments. The low-level light therapy creates a process called angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis means "new blood vessels". The more LLLT a nerve gets, the more it repairs itself. It is just like a plant growing by receiving more water, sunlight, and nutrients. When we can improve the underlying blood supply to the peripheral nerves as well as address the centrally mediated pain, patients experience substantial decreases in pain, numbness, and tingling that is all too common with neuropathy.

In addition to LLLT, we use technology centered around a Nobel Prize winning concept allowing increased circulation to the extremities.

Once we create new blood vessels to carry nutrients to the nerves, it is vital to re-educate the nerve back to normal function. We use a device found in large hospital chains across the country to re-educate the damaged nerves, making them durable again.


Common Neuropathy Symptoms

The most common mistake neuropathy sufferers make is choosing the "it will go away on its own" or "the medications will get me better" mentality. Doing this for long periods can cause you to reach a point of no return.

We do not want to see people get to that point! We have a unique system where you will only have to come in the office one time per week for a period of time, while gaining independence from your neuropathy condition. Don’t wait! Give us a call at 602-978-3321 to see if we can help!
