SOUTHLAKE NEUROPATHY 

Neuropathy Pain

Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow. Additionally, it is not uncommon for individuals with diabetes to develop diabetic nerve pain or diabetic neuropathy, which is a result of prolonged levels of elevated blood glucose.

The most common method your doctor will recommend to treat your neuropathic pain is with prescription drugs that may temporarily reduce your symptoms. These drugs have names such as Gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, and Neurontin, and are primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure drugs. These drugs may cause you to feel uncomfortable and have a variety of harmful side effects.

The main problem is that your doctor has told you to just live with the problem or try the drugs which you don’t like taking because they make you feel uncomfortable.

There is now a facility right here in Southlake, TX that offers you hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects. Schedule your neuropathy appointment today with Southlake Physical Medicine.

EFFECTIVELY TREATING YOUR NEUROPATHY

In order to effectively treat your neuropathic pain, three factors must be determined.Nerve Damage

1) What is the underlying cause? 

2) How much nerve damage has been sustained? NOTE: Once you have sustained 85% nerve loss, there is likely nothing that we can do for you. 

3) How much treatment will your condition require?

The treatment that is provided at Southlake Physical Medicine has three main goals:

1) Increase blood flow 

2) Stimulate small fiber nerves 

3) Decrease brain-based pain 

The treatment to increase blood flow utilizes a specialized infrared light therapy using light emitting diode technology. This technology was originally developed by NASA to assist in increasing blood flow.

The low level light therapy is like watering a plant. The light therapy will allow the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding water to a plant and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.

The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as you have not sustained at least 85% nerve damage there is hope!

Dr. Tyce Hergert DC at Southlake Physical Medicine will do a neuropathy severity examination to determine the extent of the nerve damage. This neuropathy severity examination will consist of a detailed sensory evaluation, extensive peripheral vascular testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings of your neuropathy.

Call 817-898-7400 to make an appointment to determine if your peripheral neuropathy can be treated.

Testimonials

  • "I suffered from Plantar Fasciitis and was using manual soft tissue release and a lacrosse ball to help break up the knots in my foot. These methods were painful and resulted in only short-term relief. About 3 months ago, I had an amniotic injection in my foot. The injection itself was a little uncomfortable, but the long-term relief has been more beneficial than prior treatments. I would recommend this injection to anyone that suffers from this condition."
