Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that involves damage or dysfunction of the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves transmit signals between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and the rest of the body, including the limbs, organs, and muscles.
Peripheral neuropathy can develop at any age. Currently, approximately 20 million Americans are living with this medical condition.
Various factors can contribute to the development of peripheral neuropathy. Among the most common causes are:
- Side effects of certain medications, such as those associated with HIV treatment
- Exposure to pesticides and other toxins
- Heavy alcohol consumption
- Chronic kidney disease
- Chronic liver disease
- Autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
- Trauma, such as injuries from car accidents or falls
- Hereditary factors
In about one in three cases, there is no exact cause that can be identified for the patient’s peripheral neuropathy.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is a progressive condition, with symptoms that gradually worsen over time. Symptoms can vary but often include:
- Tingling and numbness
- Pins and needles sensations
- Burning, stabbing, or shooting pain
- A sensation of heaviness
- The feeling of wearing tight socks on your feet even when barefoot
- A vague feeling like there is something stuck on your foot
Diagnosing peripheral neuropathy typically involves a medical history, physical examination, and sometimes nerve conduction tests or electromyography to assess nerve function.
How Neurogenx Helps Stop Nerve Pain From Peripheral Neuropathy
Neurogenx is an advanced technology that delivers a sophisticated electronic signal deep into the body's tissues using strategically placed adhesive electrode patches. The electronic signal induces cellular changes by increasing cellular metabolism, normalizing pH levels, eliminating excess fluids and waste products responsible for swelling, and promoting the healing process.
The effectiveness of the electronic signal used in the Neurogenx treatment is attributed to its broad frequency range and a unique waveform that closely resembles the body's natural electronic patterns. This compatibility allows the signal to reach a wide variety of cells and nerve fibers, leading to more significant benefits.
Neurogenx is a non-narcotic, non-invasive, and non-surgical treatment for peripheral neuropathy in the feet. Typically, it consists of multiple sessions that are conducted over a 12-week period. However, many patients begin to experience improvement after just three to four treatment sessions.
In patients with severe pain, Neurogenx can be combined with local injections.
Neurogenx has received FDA 510(k) clearance as a medical device. Additionally, the safety and effectiveness of this treatment for peripheral neuropathy is supported by over 10 years of proven clinical success across the United States.
Over 87 percent of patients receiving Neurogenx treatment report a substantial reduction in their symptoms. The treatment is equally effective for both men and women, regardless of age.
Here are some of the ways that Neurogenx treatment can improve your quality of life:
- Decreased need for narcotic pain medication
- More restful sleep, since you’re not waking up in the middle of the night with pain
- Improved balance and ability to participate in everyday activities
- Freedom from the fear of falling due to a lack of sensation in the feet
