What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nerves of the hands and feet are damaged, with the most common nerve pain affecting the feet.
More than 100 types of peripheral neuropathies have been identified, and each type has its own unique symptoms and progression. Neuropathy symptoms usually begin with pain in the toes or feet, with the pain spreading up the legs over time.
Neuropathy is quickly becoming one of the most common chronic diseases in the United States. In fact 8% of US population, or about 24 million people suffer from peripheral neuropathy.
We are aware that nerve regeneration is complex — there is no one-size-fits-all treatment. Our elite team of friendly and knowledgeable neuropathy practitioners takes a specialized approach to nerve restoration, combining proprietary, state-of-the-art technologies with advanced alternatives.
A Progressive Disease
Common Dysfunctional Nerve Symptoms
- Burning pain
- Sharp electrical pain
- Difficulty walking
- Loss of balance
- Symptoms traveling up the legs over time
- Pain that is worse at night
Neuropathy only gets worse over time. Diabetes is the number one cause of neuropathy, but is not the only cause. A lot of things can damage a nerve and can cause neuropathy damage. You can be a pre-diabetic and still develop neuropathy. Number two on the list is poor circulation. If you are not getting proper blood flow to your peripheral nerves, neuropathy can develop. Number three is chemotherapy drugs.
About 40% to 50% of all chemo patients end up with neuropathy because the medication has damaged their nerves. Neck and back problems like spinal stenosis, disc problems, surgeries, hip and knee replacements often lead to neuropathy.
Auto immune diseases like lupus, infections like staph infections, alcohol and cigarette smoking can all damage nerves.
One of the newest issues is that many medications on the market can cause damage to the nerves! Doctors are giving patients medications to help one problem, and at the same time, causing the patient to incur a whole new problem.

Why Wait to Restore Your Health?
Our patients have a multitude of questions when beginning their health journey. We’ve taken our most frequent ones and answered them!
Can We Help You?
There are three factors we need to determine in an exam to accept your case
- Identify the underlying cause of your neuropathy
- Identify how much nerve damage has been sustained (you must be under 85% nerve damage for us to effectively treat your condition)
- What & how much treatment will your condition require
At what point should a patient explore this option, and when is it too late?
If you are tired of feeling sick and tired and want improved quality of life then our programs are for you. If you want to pursue true resolution of your condition then our programs are for you. If you can put your health first then our programs are for you.
We have treated patients from 18 -102 years old and had the same great outcomes. Age does not seem to matter when it comes to regenerative medicine.
How Do Our Neuropathy Programs Work?
Our neuropathy recovery programs are aimed at addressing the following:
- #1 Goal = Stop Progression
- Decrease systemic inflammation through nutrition
- Increase blood flow to damaged neuropathic areas
- Provide proper Fuel & Activation to nourish and stimulate neuroplasticity (new nerve growth)
- Stimulate regeneration
Is this covered by insurance?
Cost depends on a patient’s specific problem and amount of treatment needed. Unfortunately, insurance has chosen not to cover these services at this time.
