What causes neuropathy? Neuropathy, which is commonly called peripheral neuropathy, can be caused by several different conditions that include diabetes, viral or bacterial infections, autoimmune diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, hypothyroidism, kidney disease and liver disease. Pain relief treatment options include regenerative medicine, chiropractic care and PRP injections. At our clinic, we will provide you with a customized plan to target the cause of your neuropathy and get you the results you need.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a health condition that affects your peripheral nervous system, which is a network of nerves connecting your spinal cord and brain to the rest of your body. When the normal function of these nerves encounters interference, you may experience symptoms that include pain, tingling and numbness in your extremities.
There are four types of peripheral neuropathy, which are motor, sensory, autonomic nerve and combination that can affect different parts of your physiology and biomechanics.
Our primary treatment for neuropathy is regenerative medicine using donated mesenchymal cells from the Wharton’s jelly of umbilical cords. After a healthy C-section birth, these high-quality cells are collected and then injected into your damaged tissue to repair and regenerate tissue and help relieve neuropathy pain. These youthful cells are at the height of their healing power and contain essential components for quick, efficient healing like cytokines, natural growth factors, proteins, exosomes and the macromolecules collagen, glycoproteins and enzymes that make up the extracellular matrix.
Both the mother and baby are monitored during the pregnancy to ensure these cells are of the highest quality, and neither feels any discomfort when the tissue is collected after the birth. The reason we prefer mesenchymal cells to cells extracted from your own adipose tissue or bone marrow is because as we age, the number of cells that contain the healing elements found in mesenchymal cells diminishes. That’s why healing is slower as we age.
When the younger cells are injected, they will boost your body’s own healing response and repair the damaged tissue as efficiently as possible. And since they haven’t yet developed their own immune system, there is virtually zero chance of rejection.
Besides regenerative medicine, we also offer several other natural treatments that may help with your neuropathy pain. These include platelet-rich plasma (PRP), chiropractic care, laser therapy and spinal decompression. PRP involves drawing a small sample of your blood and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the plasma. The highly concentrated platelets are then injected into the damaged tissue to accelerate healing.
Neuropathy Pain Relief
Finding long-term pain relief should always start by examining the underlying cause of the numbness in your feet, tingling in your hands and similar symptoms. It’s easy to mask symptoms with medication, but the real problem will persist and you’ll never find a lasting solution. We will treat the cause of your neuropathy symptoms without the need for medication or surgery, so you can get back to living your life without pain and numbness.
