Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that often results in tingling and numbness in the hands and feet. When you suffer from neuropathy, the nerves that connect your body to your brain and spinal cord are affected, which can disrupt your daily routine and quality of life.
Our non-surgical, drug-free treatments for neuropathy can help your body’s own healing mechanisms resolve the underlying cause of your pain and discomfort for long-lasting relief. Get in touch with us today to set up a free consultation.
What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy can have several different causes, although the most common one that we see at our clinic is diabetes. Diabetic-related nerve issues in the hands and feet are common and our regenerative treatments can help you find true pain relief.
Some additional causes of neuropathy include:
- Liver disease
- A bacterial or viral infection
- Kidney disease
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Treating neuropathic pain at its source rather than simply covering up the symptoms is the key to finding long-lasting relief.
When pain medication is prescribed, the relief you experience is only temporary until the effects wear off, then you need to take more. The potential consequences of this approach have been well documented, which is why addressing the underlying cause rather than masking the symptoms makes the most sense.
How Can Regenerative Medicine Effectively Treat Neuropathic Pain?
Our regenerative tissue injections for neuropathy pain are derived from the Wharton’s Jelly of umbilical cords that have been donated by consenting mothers after a scheduled C-section birth. The mothers who donate the tissue are carefully prescreened to help ensure high-quality tissue. The treatment is minimally invasive and is performed on an outpatient basis, requiring little to no downtime. The fact that this young tissue has yet to form its own immune system means the chances of rejection are minimal.
The youthful tissue we collect is filled with powerful healing properties that include:
- Growth factors
- Amino acids
- Hyaluronic acid
- And more
Our platelet-rich plasma therapy is another regenerative treatment that can help your body heal the underlying issues that lead to neuropathy pain. PRP therapy works by drawing a small sample of your blood. It is then placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the red blood cells. These platelets are concentrated with healing properties. The doctor then injects directly into your damaged or degraded tissue to help facilitate the healing process. PRP has a very low likelihood of rejection since it is made from your own blood, with minimal to no risk of adverse side effects.
