What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy (also known as peripheral neuropathy) is a condition that damages your nerve fibers and is widely known for causing tingling, numbness, and pain. It normally starts in your hands and feet before it spreads to the other parts of your body. This ailment generally indicates a problem within your peripheral nervous system. Your peripheral nervous system contains a network of nerves outside your brain and spinal cord.
Just like electrical wires, your nerve fibers have a protective coating. Neuropathy results when this coating starts to dissipate, thus causing your nerves to be exposed. This disrupts the way nerve cells communicate amongst themselves and the brain. When such nerve fibers become exposed, it results in pain and numbness. Neuropathy can affect only one nerve (mononeuropathy) or a group of nerves in a limited area (multifocal neuropathy) or several peripheral nerves throughout the body (polyneuropathy).
Your peripheral nervous system consists of three kinds of nerves, each with a vital role to keep your body functioning properly and healthy;
- Sensory nerves: They transport messages from your five senses via your spinal cord to the
- Motor nerves: They travel in the opposite direction from sensory nerves. Motor nerves transfer messages from the brain to your muscles.
- Autonomic nerves are responsible for body functions that are not within your direct control, like sex arousal, sweating, blood pressure, digestion, breathing, and bladder control.
What are the Symptoms of Neuropathy?
- Burning sensation in the feet/hands
- Loss of coordination
- Muscle weakness
- Sharp, stabbing pains
- Numbness and tingling in the feet or hands
- Can’t feel cold or hot
While What Triggers Neuropathy
While in a few cases, neuropathy is hereditary, most of it is generally acquired. Acquired neuropathy occurs over time and can be caused by various underlying medical conditions like;
- Diabetes causes a condition known as diabetic neuropathy.
- Kidney disease
- Poor blood circulation
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Poor nutrition
- Certain cancer medications.
Can I reverse Neuropathy in my extremities?
Yes, this ailment can be reversed using acoustic wave therapy from WaveTech Therapy.
What is the Treatment for Neuropathy?
Traditional neuropathy therapies are normally ineffective because they rely on medications to mask the signs instead of addressing the physical problems contributing to the symptoms. WaveTech Therapy can offer beneficial results that go over and above managing pain for patients who are not responding to traditional treatments or don’t want to depend on medications.
What is the latest Treatment for Neuropathy?
We treat neuropathy using acoustic waves to increase blood vessels’ size and create open pathways that ultimately lead to increased blood flow. These acoustic waves can cause blocked vessels to open and facilitate blood flow. The improved blood flow makes oxygen available to your peripheral nerves causing them to heal and remain healthy. Besides, WaveTech solutions tell the brain that there is trauma in a specific area. The brain later brings a cascading flow of stem cells to the diseased region. The combination of driving stem cells and improved blood flow can cause your nerve fibers to grow healthy and rejuvenate.
FDA-approved and patented as the only device of its kind in Knoxville, WaveTech uses cutting-edge acoustic therapy to provide an effective neuropathy treatment. While applying such technologies to the afflicted areas, it’s common to experience reduced inflammation and swelling, improved stem cell generation, and adequate blood flow. As a result, the tingling, burning, and numbness caused by neuropathy is typically eliminated or reduced-giving you the freedom to live your life to the fullest.
