Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy Therapy

If you suffer from this diabetic nerve disorder, peripheral diabetic neuropathy therapy is available. We can help with decreased protective sensation of the foot and lower leg, loss of balance due to decreased sensation in the feet and ankles, falls, and difficulty with wound healing due to decreased circulation.

Our methods can also address leg muscle wasting that may lead to changes in walking. If you’re living with tingling, numbness and pain that’s debilitating enough to shorten golf games, prevent long walks, and otherwise decrease the fun in life – contact us regarding peripheral diabetic neuropathy therapy.

The goals with peripheral neuropathy patients can now be to restore sensation, improve walking ability, improve balance, prevent falls, and to heal wounds. Loss of sensation in the feet causes many diabetics to have poor position sense (proprioception). Diabetics with neuropathy are 15 times more likely to fall than someone without neuropathy and of the same age.

Peripheral Diabetic Neuropathy Therapy

While some doctors and even other physical therapists might not have an answer for you, we are leading the way with an exciting new therapy. We are the first and only provider of Anodyne Therapy.

It is light-emitting diodes that are fitted into eight flexible pads. These pads are applied to the skin of the lower legs and feet. The theory is that when the monochromatic infrared pads are placed on the skin, the photon energy helps to release a free radical called nitric oxide from hemoglobin in the red blood cells. Nitric oxide increases local microcirculation, has beneficial effects on nerve function and pain, and helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients.
