Desert Podiatry Group is now offering Laser Treatment for Neuropathy
The condition known as Neuropathy occurs when specific nerve pathways are damaged. Damaged nerves send incorrect signals back to the brain causing the Neuropathy sufferer to feel numbness, burning, tingling and impulses of sharp pain. Unlike most other tissues in the body nerve cells do not have an external blood supply. The blood vessels that are responsible for feeding the nerves are located within the nerves themselves. Therefore, irritated or injured cells interrupt their own oxygen and nutrient supply. This leads to altered and/or disrupted nerve sensations.
Laser Therapy bypasses the blood stream to deliver healing energy in two different ways:
- Laser Therapy sends bio-available energy directly through intact skin to photoreceptors within the injured cells to “jump start” the healing process. The photoreceptors act like solar panels that accumulate and store energy which is used by the powerhouse of the cell (called mitochondria) to activate the healing process.
- Laser Therapy improves the function of blood vessels that feed the nerves. As the blood vessels become healthier the nerves begin to thrive. The Laser therapy improves the oxygenation of the individual nerve cells allowing them to “plump up” and lengthen to fill in the gaps between the nerve cells. This allows the nerve signals to “jump” from cell to cell more quickly since the distance between the nerve cells is lessened.
The opening of the electrical pathways and accelerated nerve cell repair allow for clear, correct communication between the brain and the rest of the body. The result is healthy function and a return to normal sensation.
NO MORE PAIN, NO MORE NUMBNESS, NO MORE TINGLING AND NO MORE BURNING!
