Peripheral Neuropathy Care in Madison

brain neurons illustrationDo you experience numbness, tingling, or a burning sensation in your hands and feet? If yes, you’re not alone. These are some of the most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that affects the peripheral nerves, which are the long and thin nerve fibers that connect the brain and spinal cord to muscles and sensory organs throughout the body.

This progressive condition usually affects the lower legs and feet, and then can advance to the hands and fingers. It’s estimated that over 20 million people in the United States experience some form of peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Hoover is one of them.

Common Symptoms

Those with this condition often experience the following:

  • Numbness/tingling
  • Burning pain
  • Unusual and/or loss of sensations
  • Muscle weakness
  • Deep stabbing pain
  • Balance problems

What Are the Causes?

Diabetes is one of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy. This occurs when high blood sugar levels damage the nerves, leading to numbness, tingling, and other unusual sensations in the extremities. Another potential cause is certain medications, such as chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer. Physical trauma and metabolic disorders can also cause this painful nerve condition.

A Comprehensive Treatment Program

At Back Care Plus, Dr. Hoover can now help patients with peripheral neuropathy with detailed protocols he’s following himself. The comprehensive treatment program we use is safe and effective.

There are four vital elements of our neuropathy protocol:

One of the treatment technologies we utilize to increase blood flow and repair the nerve is our Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT). The light therapy signals vascular endothelial growth (VEGF), which signals the production of angiogenesis, which is the creation of new blood vessels, which is required to repair nerve damage.

State-of-the-art digital electrotherapeutic stimulation is used to assist in the growth of the nerves, which is called nerve re-education. Cancer Treatment Centers of America® use this modality to help those going through chemotherapy rebuild their nerves.

Proper nutrition to support our other vital components is crucial for optimal tissue and nerve repair. Our advanced nutritional therapies have been designed to accelerate the healing process by affecting the complex processes of inflammation, blood flow, and bioavailable nitric oxide.

In conjunction with your home infrared electromagnetic and electrostimulation therapy, we will have you visit the office once a week for our in-clinic protocol. Each vital component is equally important for optimal results.

A High Success Rate

The comprehensive approach we take gets to the root cause. With the protocols we use, nerves can regenerate and damage can be repaired. When the protocols are used as prescribed, there’s a 97% success rate!
