What Treatments Are Available for Peripheral Neuropathy?
Updated: Feb 9, 2019
The treatment depends on the type and nerve damage of your particular case. You doctor will be able to determine a more suitable determination of your particular case. Doctors may recommend medications to reduce the symptoms, or surgery if you are at risk of infection. Now, there is also a new cold-laser therapy solution for treating the root cause of Peripheral Neuropathy.
Addressing the Cause of Neuropathy
Medications - Many drugs are available to treat the symptoms of neuropathy. These drugs include medications that are common to treat depression and epilepsy. They work by inhibiting the transmission of signals to the brain that modulate pain signals. You may also find, topical drugs that are applied directly to the skin. Opioid painkillers also, work similarly in inhibiting the brains function of recognizing the pain symptoms of neuropathy.
Surgery - Often times, medical doctors will recommend and conduct surgery for "pinched nerves." If you have bulging and herniated discs, or other swelling along the brain and spinal cord they may also recommend surgery. These surgeries are conducted as decompression mechanisms to reduce the swelling of affected areas. Often times this is done by cutting the nerves. Unfortunately, may cause temporary pain relief, but increases the nerve damage and often leads to more severe symptoms of neuropathy.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) - TENS therapy is used in a number of different treatments. This involves connecting electrical stimulation to the nodes at the root of your pain to signal and rebuild the peripheral nerves.
High-Performance Rebuilder Therapy - Rebuilder Therapy works by providing a more sophisticated and Electrical Nerve Stimulation to peripheral nerves. This treatment option is used specifically for treating peripheral neuropathy.

Risks of Treatment
Medication Treatments put you at risk of the side-effect producing drugs. Taking pain-killers, antidepressants, and epilepsy drugs may cause decreased mood, decreased function, risk of addiction and other poor side-effects. Typically, these medications are none-other than coping mechanisms, but do not serve in treating the root cause of your neuropathy.
This means that neuropathy symptoms may continue to increase in severity, even if they may be masked by these medications. This often puts people at risk of a more debilitating neuropathic condition. In those cases, neuropathy may affect your digestive system and cause total imbalance. This often results in a need for a wheelchair or walker.
Sometimes, in severe cases of neuropathy, sufferers may experience near total numbness. This may lead to infection without noticing. When this happens, your case may require surgery to prevent the spread of the infection into other parts of the body.
