Medical providers genuinely want to help those who suffer from chronic neuropathy symptoms, but in the past have had limited tools. If you have chronic neuropathy symptoms, you will likely have heard that treatment is limited to medications that like gabapentin that try to reduce symptoms but often have limited or no effect and can create unwanted side-effects. iMed's neuropathy center was created to meet this need and provide safe, effective treatments for neuropathy and other difficult to treat acute and chronic pain.
What is Neuropathy (Peripheral Neuropathy)?
Neuropathy is a disease involving injury to peripheral nerves. Neuropathy causes pain that is often described as severe pain (burning, stabbing, electrical), numbness, and tingling. It can affect any of the three types of peripheral nerves: motor, sensory, and autonomic nerves. Those suffering from neuropathy often lose mobility due to numbness, muscle weakness, and loss of coordination/balance.
The most common cause of peripheral neuropathy is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN); however, we are increasingly seeing patients that have neuropathy due to other medical factors and conditions including aging, chemical exposure (chemotherapy, heavy metals), nutritional deficiencies, repetitive use, autoimmune disorders, and prior infections.
How do you treat pain?
We use advanced technology to deliver electrical signals to treat pain and circulatory conditions. Our medical-grade equipment is designed to provide the appropriate strength, frequencies, and harmonics to effectively reduce pain.
What conditions do you treat?
We use electrical stimulation to treat pain. Pain can come from a variety of conditions including the following:
We recognize the importance of good health for quality of life. Neuropathy and chronic pain limit mobility and independence.
