Neuropathy: Finding the right doctor in the Pittsburgh area to provide you with safe and effective treatment for your neuropathy isn't easy. The truth of the matter is that there are very few FDA approved treatments for neuropathy. Currently there are only 2-3 drugs that are approved for neuropathy symptoms. So I probably don't have to tell you, that if you have neuropathy, you are pretty much on your own. The bad news is, because there are so few approved treatments for neuropathy, many doctors don't want to be bothered treating people suffering from this disease. They simply don't have anything to offer. The good news is that research is offering hope and help to the thousands of neuropathy patients who previously didn't have many viable options for relief. Researchers are finding promising treatments for patients suffering from neuropathy in some unexpected places. One exciting treatment is acupuncture. A 3 thousand year old therapy that seems to not only relieve the pain of neuropathy, but may actually help damaged nerves to function normally again. There is no current medication that can do that!
There is growing evidence that electronic acupuncture can not only relieve the symptoms of neuropathy, but may also restore nerve function towards normal.
Another promising therapy is low level laser treatment. If acupuncture is the oldest known treatment for neuropathy pain, laser is one of the newest. And just like acupuncture, laser therapy appears to be able to repair the nerve damage caused by neuropathy. If you have neuropathy, these research findings are really exciting news. In addition to these two promising therapies, there are several amino acids, a number of herbs and some other natural substances that appear to stimulate nerve repair and regeneration. By combining several of these promising therapies together we have been able to provide significant relief and long term benefit for our patients suffering from neuropathy.*
