What is Diabetic Neuropathy?
Diabetes can harm your nerves. This occurs when nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased. That damage may be painful. It can happen in several ways, and they all seem to be related to blood sugar levels being too high for too long. To prevent it, work with your doctor to manage your blood sugar. Diabetic Neuropathy is one of the most common and chronic forms of polyneuropathy.
This type usually affects the feet and legs. Rare cases affect the arms, abdomen, and back.
- Numbness (which may become permanent)
- Burning (especially in the evening)
Patients with this condition have been shown to improve their symptoms tremendously through Biopulse treatments. These treatments are provided through a painless device that sends low-level electromagnetic pulses to stimulate reflex and pressure points in your body and penetrates deep into your muscles, nerves, and joints.
We are currently offering this treatment and repeat ones free to new patient referrals with an evaluation until the end of July.
