If Your Neuropathy Treatment Plan Is Based Entirely On Drugs, It May Be Time To Learn About Other Options.
Is your current doctor doing everything that can be done for your neuropathy and chronic pain?
Too often, the physicians who find themselves providing neuropathy treatment are well trained in their own specialties, or perhaps in general medicine, but not in treating neuropathy.
Unfortunately for neuropathy patients, doctors who aren’t trained in ALL of the treatment options available for neuropathy tend to rely heavily on the use of drugs to alleviate pain and discomfort. In fact, this is a global problem in healthcare today, with so many medical decisions being unduly influenced by the powerful pharmaceutical industry.
To be honest, this problem with excessive medicating actually goes back more than 30 years! It’s a tough one to combat.
In some cases, of course, medications can be very helpful and appropriate. But so many drugs have side effects and other factors that make their long-term use harmful.
Ideally, your neuropathy treatment plan will have a long-term component including many elements aside from medications. Many of the latest neuropathy treatments can work alongside your current drug regimen and eventually allow you to reduce or eliminate those medications altogether.
You’ve heard me say it before: The most basic elements of effective neuropathy treatment start with lifestyle changes that you can implement right away. Combine these at-home treatments with some of the best neuropathy treatment factors we know about today, and you have a powerful recipe for better health—not just in the short term, but over time as well.
With a thorough assessment and lifestyle treatment plan developed with a trained NeuropathyDR® clinician, you will be able to apply breakthrough neuropathy treatments like laser therapy and electrotherapy for relief from your symptoms.
