Tingling. Cramping. Burning. Tightness. Shooting pain. These and other symptoms of peripheral neuropathy go beyond mere discomfort. Some individuals with this condition are not only compromised physically but also preoccupied mentally and emotionally. 

Peripheral neuropathy is damage to or dysfunction of the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. They transmit signals between the central nervous system and the rest of the body, including the limbs, organs, and muscles. Approximately 20 million Americans of all ages live with this condition.

While some people never discover the origin of their peripheral neuropathy, others develop it as a complication of:

  • Autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus

  • Cancer and chemotherapy

  • Chronic heart or kidney disease

  • Diabetes

  • Genetics

  • Injury trauma

  • Medication side effects

  • Pesticide exposure

But you don’t have to suffer indefinitely. Our office is excited about an innovative, non-invasive procedure called Neurogenx: an FDA-cleared, clinically proven treatment for neuropathy. Here are some of the ways Neurogenx treatment improves your quality of life:

  • Better balance and a greater ability to participate in everyday activities.

  • Freedom from the fear of falling due to a lack of sensation in the feet.

  • More restful sleep, since you’re not waking up in the middle of the night with pain.

  • Decreased need for narcotic pain medication.

Nearly 90 percent of patients receiving Neurogenx treatment report a substantial reduction in their symptoms—and it’s equally effective for everyone, regardless of age.

So are you ready to put the pain of peripheral neuropathy behind you? Dr. Joel Foster and his team will help you decide if Neurogenx is the solution.
