If you have neuropathy, simple daily activities like taking a walk or driving a car can be painful. Our regenerative medicine clinic located in Charleston, Illinois has several advanced, all-natural pain relief treatments to relieve symptoms like numbness in feet and numbness in hands.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a nerve condition that causes tingling and numbness in the extremities. Peripheral nerves affect your sense of touch and how you react to stimuli, so when there’s an issue, it causes a heightened sense of pain.
The disorder often starts in the fingers and toes and moves into the limbs. As the disease worsens, it causes pain and a loss of feeling in the feet, legs, and hands. Peripheral neuropathy may also affect your balance and coordination, making even your simplest tasks hard to do. It causes memory loss and poor concentration as well. Due to the full range of debilitating physiological symptoms, people with this condition might become moody or develop depression.
Regenerative medicine treats peripheral neuropathy at its source, using clinical, drug-free, non-surgical techniques. Regenerative therapies enhance your body’s innate ability to repair, restore, and heal damaged nerves.
Regenerative Cell Therapy
Stem cells can regenerate and develop into other types of cells. Mesenchymal stem cells, harvested from Wharton’s jelly in umbilical cords, are young healthy cells with potent restorative healing powers. Once these stem cells are introduced into your body, damaged cells, tissue, and nerves are healed to address the root causes of your neuropathy pain symptoms.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections
Platelet-rich plasma injections use your blood, which contains a wide range of growth factors and therapeutic bioactive materials, to repair neuropathy damage. During a simple procedure conducted in the office, we process some of your blood to concentrate its platelets, which we then inject into the areas of your body targeted for treatment. Platelets are already necessary to healing, but we use PRP to boost their presence at the site of injury and your body’s capacity to regenerate and self-renew. The result is fast and effective pain relief.
Chiropractic care is a powerful treatment for peripheral neuropathy. Chiropractic adjustments help to remove pressure on the nerves, increase blood flow, and stimulate small fiber nerves.
Laser therapy uses light to drive healing energy into your tissues to stimulate the repair and healing of injured tissue causing your neuropathy pain.
Causes of Neuropathy
Diabetes is a prevalent cause of peripheral neuropathy since persistently high blood sugar can cause nerve damage. Additional causes of peripheral neuropathy may include:
- Alcohol abuse
- Substance abuse
- Unhealthy diets
- Vitamin deficiencies
- Infectious diseases that attack the immune system (e.g., HIV/AIDS)
- Toxic substances used in chemotherapy
Our medical clinic provides a wide range of effective treatments to help you get fast relief of your pain so that you can regain control of your life.
