What Causes Neuropathy?
The symptoms of neuropathy come about from restricted blood flow to the peripheral nerves, often resulting in nerve damage.
While diabetes is one of the most common causes of neuropathy in the United States, there can be other causes as well, such as degenerative disc disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and more. In many cases, there has been an auto-immune response where the body actually attacks its own nerve tissue, causing the damage.
The body relies heavily on the nervous system and the ability to relay and receive orders from the brain through the nerves, nerve endings, and neural cells. When they are damaged or disrupted, it can lead to a lot of unwanted symptoms and problems.
Treatment Options for Neuropathy
One treatment option for neuropathy offered here at the Pain and Wellness Institute is platelet-rich plasma or PRP injections.
PRP therapy- A treatment that falls under the heading of regenerative medicine, the goal of platelet-rich plasma therapy is to enhance the body’s own healing response.
Your entire life, your system has been producing the substances needed to heal from injuries, illnesses, and other damage done at the cellular level. Things like growth factors, platelets, and cytokines. The older we get, the less of these that are produced. Just think about how quickly you healed from a tumble when you were young, as compared to how easy it would be to recover from one now. Well, with platelet-rich plasma therapy, we use a small sample of your own blood to isolate a concentration of these powerful healing components and inject them where the body needs them.
Simply put, we are taking the exact substances your body uses to heal itself and then supplying a higher volume of those where it is most needed to help enhance the healing response and offer all-natural pain relief. The procedure is minimally invasive, requires little to no downtime, and is considerably less expensive than many other neuropathy treatment options. Plus, PRP therapy can be used to supplement other treatments you may do and compound those healing effects.
Other treatment options may be available to you as well, and our team of medical professionals will go over all possible options with you upon your initial appointment. To schedule, call our office at (813) 733-7631.
