At Louisville Neuropathy Center, we have many years of helping patients improve their quality of life. Our individualized, non-surgical programs are designed to address the factors that can be contributing to the progression of your neuropathy.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a result of damage to the peripheral nerves (nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord). This damage can lead to numbness and tingling, burning, itching, pins and needles, pain, weakness, balance issues and a barrage of other symptoms.
It is estimated that peripheral neuropathy affects more than 20 million people in the U.S., and the condition is growing rapidly. Peripheral Neuropathy cannot only affect the feet, but also the hands and other parts of the body.
Some Causes of Neuropathy:
Symptoms of Neuropathy:
If you are affected by peripheral neuropathy, you know all too well that this condition can affect comfort, mobility, and quality of life. You and your loved ones may have noticed a decrease in your activity level and/or physical abilities.
But, it can be difficult for friends, family, and even your spouse or partner to understand the extent of how peripheral neuropathy is affecting you… simply because they have never experienced anything like this. And that can be very frustrating and difficult to navigate.
You may have even been told that there is no way to stop the progression of this disease and that it is something you will have to learn to live with.
Quite frankly, that can be pretty scary. Will you be able to go on vacation with your family to enjoy the beach? Can you continue hiking your favorite trails? Or will you need someone to help get you around for just ordinary daily tasks?
But, there is hope.
To find out if we can help, we must first start with a detailed review of your health history, a review of any pertinent records and/or advanced imaging, and a pointed examination to determine the extent of damage and the possible options for a course of care.
Our non-surgical individualized programs are designed to address multiple factors that can be contributing to the progression of your neuropathy.
Major Causes of Neuropathy:
Symptoms of Neuropathy:
On your first visit to our clinical facility, we conduct an initial consultation session to review your medical history and perform a quick Q&A session regarding your drinking habits, daily routines, and family history of diseases and medical conditions.
After the initial consultation, we conduct a neurologic examination to determine the extent of neuropathy and its primary causes. We may conduct a few additional tests like genetic testing, imaging testing, and tissue biopsies if needed.
Once the diagnosis is completed successfully, we recommend medications, therapies (both physical and occupational), surgeries, and natural remedies to relieve the pain and treat or cure the patient’s overall health and medical condition, depending on the extent of the illness.
Your continued progress is our goal, and we strive to offer all of our patients the benefits of updated techniques and technology to maintain and improve your health.
