There are now many systems available to help patients deal more effectively with their neuropathy.
This is one of the questions that unfortunately we receive all the time when managing patients with peripheral neuropathy and many forms of chronic pain.
The reality is, most physicians do everything they can to help their patients. Unfortunately, especially in practices that do not specialize, the doctors are oftentimes unaware of new and drug free systems and procedures that may be available to help their patients.
Unfortunately, so much of modern healthcare has become “drugs first”.
Now don’t get me wrong, oftentimes this could be a life-saving approach, you should always defer these decisions to your well-trained medical professionals. You probably know however that in many forms of chronic pain and especially peripheral neuropathy drug only therapy can be a dead end.
But unfortunately, drug therapy is the only training most medical professionals and facilities ever receive. Furthermore, we know the pharmaceutical industry is huge, with immense marketing budgets and constant bombardment of their messages not only to patients but doctors as well.
And this is not a new problem. I remember 30+ years ago having discussions with my medical doctor friends about this very issue. Many times intense pharmaceutical marketing makes their jobs more difficult, rather than easier.
But the good news is, we now know that many patients who combine drug therapy with the latest available neuropathy and chronic pain treatments do far better. Often times, these neuropathy patients are able to reduce and sometimes eliminate certain medications.
These specialized neuropathy chronic pain treatments include patient training and applications of special neuropathy treatment modalities.
Some of the biggest neuropathy treatment breakthroughs are occurring in electro therapy, laser therapy, in other neuro stimulatory techniques.
There are now many systems available to help patients deal more effectively with their neuropathy, pain, sleep and life disruption then ever before.
We are here to help you sort them out.
