Neuropathy is pain, weakness, or numbness due to damage in your nerves. Neuropathy can affect any part of your body and become quite intense, even when you are performing daily tasks like walking or opening jars. The staff at our wellness institute in Tampa Bay is dedicated to offering you neuropathy pain relief, with all-natural and non-invasive treatments.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is nerve pain on the edges of your body, like your hands and feet, as opposed to the core nerves in the center of your body. Neuropathy most often feels like a tingling in your hands or a tingling in your feet—although it can be sharp, freezing, or burning too.
Neuropathy pain may affect your everyday life. Holding onto vibrating objects, like the pole on the subway, can make your pain more intense. You might avoid the heat of a summer vacation or skiing in winter because temperature changes make your pain worse.
As neuropathy gets worse, it may also affect the nerves that control your balance and coordination. You may find yourself falling over frequently, or, due to numbness in your hands, you may be unable to perform the simple movements you need to do for work. You may also have digestive issues that keep you close to a bathroom.
Neuropathy can affect your life deeply, which is why we think it is critical to offer you effective pain relief options, such as stem cell treatments and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections.
Regenerative medicine is all about using your body’s own ability to heal itself. Your body produces many substances to heal your injuries throughout your life. As you get older, your body gets worse at healing itself, but our doctor uses proven therapies to boost it.
One treatment is platelet-rich plasma. We draw your blood and isolate the platelets and other healing cytokines and growth factors that we want to use. This plasma is five to ten times more potent than your own blood when it comes to delivering healing factors. We then inject the treatment where you need it, which, when it comes to peripheral neuropathy, is often your feet and hands.
Your body doesn’t always have the answers for healing. You have stem cells, which are capable of turning into any cell in your body. However, yours have aged with you and are less active. For regenerative cell therapy, we use only young, vigorous mesenchymal stem cells to give you better pain relief from peripheral neuropathy.
Causes of Neuropathy
Many different conditions can cause peripheral neuropathy, including:
- Auto-immune diseases
- Injuries or trauma
- Metabolic problems
- Toxic exposure
- Vitamin deficiencies
Most frustratingly, peripheral neuropathy may also be idiopathic, which means the cause is unknown. Usually, treating the underlying cause of peripheral neuropathy will give you relief. In the case of nerve damage, regenerative treatments to rebuild tissue can be your best option at relief and recovery.
Further, almost all people who have neuropathy in the feet also have lower back issues. At our institute, we can treat both issues effectively.
With real pain relief, you can take on your day, stop worrying about how temperature might affect your pain, and resume the activities you used to enjoy.
