The Bellevue Pain Institute Neuropathy Care Protocol
Using the latest in technology, we offer you the multi-disciplined approach to the neuropathy care. Plethysmography, studies the health of the peripheral blood supply to these small fiber nerves and is also an essential component to the accurate diagnosis (what’s the name for what you have) and the prognosis (the likelihood that any treatment will be helpful). Laser therapy has evolved to a point where its proper use can reduce or even eliminate the neuropathy pain and symptoms. This, when combined with specific non-surgical non-invasive relaxing reintegration and stimulation protocols, increase the function of the small fiber nerves and blood vessels allowing for the regeneration that is seen in over 90% of the cases.
Laser therapy has well established indications for improving circulation, decreasing inflammation and stimulating the functional components of the nerve cells, critical components of regenerating the plexus small fiber nerves.
Research has shown that laser therapies produce faster and more effective results than other modalities. There have been over 2500 medical research papers published about laser therapy and its accelerated healing and pain relief. The laser provides deeper penetration allowing for faster treatments.
We understand what you are going through and we understand what your family is going through. We know that if you qualify for care in our office, there is a very real chance that we can help you get your life back. There is a point in neuropathy where the damage is so extensive that even our very effective protocols will not work. If fact, if you are too far gone, we promise to tell you straight out.
It gets worse when left untreated!
Over a four year period a group of 138,420 neuropathy sufferers were observed by researchers to suffer an 800% increase in pain medication use, a 500% increase in leg and foot ulcers and a 300% increase in assistance needed to walk and climb stairs in the form of canes, walkers and wheel chairs. Earlier we discover the problem the better. We will qualify you for care through a specific process to determine which, if any, of our treatment protocols will offer you the most relief possible. We follow the ‘least invasive first’ policy.
You may need custom bracing to assist you with walking stabilization as the fear of walking and taking dangerous falls is a very real concern for those of you with this condition. Still others, we have discovered that their neuropathy is stemming from damage in the lower spine where the bones have compressed upon the nerves or spinal cord. Non-surgical spinal decompression with deep penetration laser to heal swollen and bulging discs is critical for removing the cause of the nerve damage with these patients.
Some patients report neuropathy pain eliminated or reduced after just one treatment.
