Pain comes in many shapes and sizes. One of the most debilitating being the burning and tingling that comes with peripheral neuropathy. A disease that comes with years of shooting, stabbing pain that gradually ends in numbness, balance problems and on occasion, amputations. A disease that was once classified as irreparable.
David R. of Murrells Inlet was facing such a fate.
“I stopped golfing. I wasn’t taking walks on the beach with my wife. I was living on gabapentin and antidepressants and everywhere I went; my doctor, the specialists, the pain institute, told me there was no cure. How are you supposed to live your life knowing that everyday brings pain
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves, commonly caused by a lack of blood flow in the hands and feet. This causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow. Most peripheral neuropathy sufferers experience a heightened sensitivity to touch making it almost impossible for those diagnosed to even wear shoes, much less enjoy life.
“It was like walking on sharp river rocks. I barely left my recliner.” shares David, whose experience is not uncommon for those diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy.
That is until he found us! We have pioneered a cutting edge, medical solution to treat neuropathy, eliminate or greatly reduce its symptoms and give people their lives back. And we’re doing it without the use of prescription medications and invasive surgeries.
Dr. Weber explains, “Acupuncture is incredible at restoring blood flow and stimulating damaged nerves preventing them from dying off. We take our treatments a step further by integrating ATP Resonance BioTherapy™. This targets specific nerves in the body using microcurrent. ATP therapy is like watering a plant. This treatment will stimulate the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.”
Three months later David is thrilled with his progress,“I can walk barefoot on the beach again!”
Success stories like David’s are not atypical for us. “We have a 90% success rate in treating neuropathy,” shares Dr. Weber.
The number of treatments needed to allow the nerves to fully recover will vary from person to person. This can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. So long as you have not sustained more than 85% nerve damage we can offer hope where there once was none.
While David’s peripheral neuropathy was idiopathic meaning the cause is unknown, our treatments can also help people whose neuropathy is caused by diabetes or chemotherapy. We have seen tremendous success in treating neuropathy of all types through very personalized treatments.
