Restorative Medicine Therapy Treatment for Neuropathy
We know how difficult it can be dealing with neuropathy. The pain, tingling, and numbness is a constant struggle. And sadly, standard treatments for neuropathy are medications, surgery, and neuromodulation (nerve stimulation). Medications only provide short-term pain relief while surgery and neuromodulation are both invasive methods of treatment. It often seems as if there are no simple solutions for bringing relief to the condition.
Here at Vibrant Health Care, we are committed to helping you reclaim your quality of life and supporting you on the journey. With the alternative treatment that restorative medicine therapy offers, you can achieve long-term pain relief with a non-surgical treatment for neuropathy. Moreover, you have the potential for regenerating damaged nerves, relieving inflammation, and improving your mobility and balance.

Types of Neuropathy
There are several types of neuropathy, but they can typically be classified into four general categories. These categories are:
Peripheral neuropathy is a kind of neuropathy that affects the peripheral nervous system, which is composed of the nerves situated beyond your brain and spinal cord. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include numbness, tingling, burning sensation, inability to feel temperatures, loss of coordination, and pain in the affected area or extremity.
Diabetes is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy since uncontrolled blood sugar in diabetes damages the nerves, especially those located in the toes and feet. Other causes of peripheral neuropathy include alcoholism, certain medications, cancer, thyroid and kidney disease, genetic conditions, shingles, Lyme disease, malnutrition, and autoimmune diseases.
Focal neuropathy is a condition wherein a single nerve is being compressed by encroaching tissues. This occurs due to bone spurs, disc herniation, diabetes-related nerve damage, or inflammation. The symptoms may vary depending on which nerve is compressed but common symptoms are pain, numbness, weakness, and tingling.
The most common incidence of focal neuropathy is carpal tunnel syndrome which has the nerve in the wrist and tendons irritated and inflamed since the muscles and tendons are compressing it.
- Microvascular cranial nerve palsy – This is caused by high blood pressure and affects the nerves in the eyes. It leads to double vision and limitation in eye movement.
- Bell’s palsy – This affects the seventh cranial nerve, which is responsible for controlling facial features. This kind of cranial neuropathy is usually caused by a virus, which causes swelling that puts pressure on the facial nerve.
How is Neuropathy Treated?
Antidepressants can have a relieving effect on the pain that those with neuropathy experience. Such medications include selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), serotonin receptor modulators, and anti-seizure medications. As for over-the-counter medications, some patients can get relief from acetaminophen, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and topical treatments.
Surgery is done to release pressure on the nerve. It is also done to treat the nerve damage done by carpal tunnel syndrome and diabetic neuropathy.
This is a procedure done to relieve chronic pain by stimulating the damaged nerve through electricity or medication. In both cases, a device is implanted to deliver the medication, or a weak electrical current is necessary for nerve stimulation.
The treatments mentioned above are either only for short-term pain relief or require the patient to undergo invasive methods. Moreover, surgery and neuromodulation may not be sufficient in returning nerve function.
This is where restorative medicine therapy, like restorative medicine therapy, can provide those with neuropathy an alternative. It can provide long-term relief from pain and inflammation, and, aside from injections, it does not involve invasive methods that will require the patient to rest for an extended time and involve the risk of a surgical procedure.
Here’s What Our Clients Are Saying?
Benefits of Treating with Restorative Medicine Therapy for Neuropathy
Provides relief from pain and inflammation
Neuropathy causes abnormal signaling and processing of sensory information that leads to various levels of pain and inflammation. This could be due to nerve damage or irritation or tissues compressing the nerves. Restorative medicine therapy can provide relief from these symptoms by repairing nerve damage and providing anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects.
Facilitate nerve regeneration
Neuropathy is characterized by damage to the nerves. Restorative medicine therapy can reduce or reverse the damage done to the nerves by introducing restorative medicine therapy to the area. These restorative medicine therapy can specialize in nerve cells and repair or replace damaged neurons.
Help improve mobility
Neuropathy can lead to muscle weakness due to the deterioration of the nerves. In more severe cases, it can even lead to the patient’s paralysis. With the regenerative benefits of restorative medicine therapy, the condition of the damaged nerve cells can improve, which may help improve their mobility.
Helps improve balance
Neuropathy can affect how one senses the position, movement, and orientation of the body since the nerves are damaged and can't provide this feedback to the brain. This results in them having balance problems. Restorative medicine therapy can help improve their impaired balance by addressing the condition that caused it - damaged nerve cells.
Frequently Asked Questions
The best restorative medicine therapy for this purpose include mesenchymal restorative medicine therapy and induced pluripotent restorative medicine therapy.
Using restorative medicine therapy for neuropathy can provide regenerative potential for the damaged nerves and reduce pain and inflammation with only a minimally invasive approach. And, it can complement other treatment methods for neuropathy including surgery and physical therapy.
