If you have diabetes, getting relief forneuropathy can seem almost impossible. However, with technologies such as laser therapy and nutraceuticals, it can be a piece of cake!
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects the outer limbs. You may feel numbness, tingling, burning, or a complete loss of feeling. It can be caused by a number of things, but nerve damage is one of the top reasons. The nerve damage is usually a direct result of diabetes complications. Managing your diabetes is one of the only ways to prevent neuropathy. However, if you happen to develop this problem, there are some things you can do to successfully treat it.
The Neuropathy Care Center of Houston - run by our very own Dr. Robert Parker—is a top care facility for treating peripheral neuropathy. Depending on the severity, there are different treatment plans available. We will start you out on a regimen of nutraceuticals, which is a combination of nutrition and pharmaceuticals. Laser therapy can also be utilized. This involves electric currents that are sent into the nerves to reboot them. This program lasts for four weeks with the patient coming in three times a week. It is less invasive than surgery, and is covered by many insurance plans. In some cases, however, surgery does become necessary. There may need to be removal of tissue that is preventing a normal flow of blood to the nerves.
Call Dr. Robert Parker at the very first sign of tingling in the nerves. At Parker Foot & Ankle in Houston, we can help set you up with a treatment plan that best suits your needs. Call our office at (281) 497-2850 to schedule your appointment today.
