Peripheral neuropathy occurs when nerves are damaged. It is most commonly experienced in the hands or feet, but can affect other areas of the body as well. When peripheral neuropathy occurs, varying symptoms may be experienced. Some people describe feelings of burning or tingling in the area. Others describe it as a loss of sensation, numbness or feeling as if they are wearing gloves or stockings.
One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. Neuropathy can also be caused by infections, traumatic injuries, exposure to toxic materials or various metabolic disorders.
Medications are often prescribed to relieve the discomfort of neuropathy. However, there are also exciting new treatments which can ease or even eliminate the condition. Mark Mooney has had great success with a specialized treatment called “Myokinesthetics”. A simple procedure helps to re-educate the central nervous system, and works to restore correct communication between the nerves and muscles of the affected area. Treatments typically take about 20-30 minutes, and are non-invasive and painless.
Following this treatment, one of our patients shared the following:
“For over 20 years I suffered with neuropathy in my feet. Tingling, numbness and pain were constant. I had tried everything – and almost given up. The new methods offered at MDM were a miracle. The neuropathy has disappeared and a year later it’s just a bad memory.”
