Neuropathy

Often, peripheral neuropathy produces weakness, numbness, and pain in the hands, feet and legs. It results from damage to the peripheral nerves that are located outside of the brain and spinal cord. Other body functions and areas of the body might also suffer from this condition, such as digestion, urination, and circulation.

By sending signals from your brain and spinal cord, your peripheral nervous system transmits information to the rest of your body. Peripheral nerves also transmit sensory signals to your brain.

Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy might include:

  • A gradual developing numbness, tingling, or prickling in your hands or feet, that may spread upward into your arms and legs
  • Burning, jabbing, throbbing or sharp pain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Significant sensitivity to touch
  • Falling or lack of coordination
  • Pain during activities that are supposed to be painless, such as foot pain when putting weight on them

Peripheral neuropathy can develop as a result of injuries, infections, inherited causes, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. About 60 percent of cases are caused by poorly controlled diabetes. Additional causes include chemotherapy, nutrient deficiencies, alcoholism, autoimmune diseases. One in four cases has an unknown cause.

Risk factors include:

  • 60-70% of diabetics have diabetic peripheral neuropathy
  • About 30-40% of all cancer patients develop peripheral neuropathy as a result of chemotherapy
  • One out of three HIV/AIDs patients have peripheral neuropathy
  • Immune system disorders
    • Celiac disease
    • Lupus
    • Shingles
    • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Repetitive stress
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Other medical conditions, including certain types of liver and kidney disease

Treatment For Neuropathy

Acousana therapy is a highly effective, non-invasive approach to treating mild to severe neuropathy with success rates over 86%.

Acousana utilizes patented SoftWave® technology to stimulate your body’s natural healing response by increasing blood flow by up to 300%, quickly reducing inflammation and therefore, getting rid of the pain associated with the condition.

Acousana therapy uses patented electrohydraulic SoftWaves® that are delivered through the skin using ultrasound gel. The SoftWaves trigger a natural biological response which initiates a healing process by increasing blood flow and improving circulation.

The SoftWaves “fool” the body into thinking that “damage” has occurred, when in reality, no damage has taken place. This response initiates your body’s natural self-repair process by reducing inflammation and thereby eliminating pain.

Peripheral neuropathy patients can benefit from three types of exercise: aerobics, balance, and stretching.

Start your exercise session with a dynamic stretching exercise like arm circles. You’ll be more flexible and your blood flow will be increased. It will also boost your energy and activate your nerves.

Aerobic exercises

Performing aerobic exercises causes you to breathe deeply and move large muscles. By doing so, you increase blood flow and release endorphins that act as painkillers for the body.

As a best practice, we recommend doing aerobic activities at least three days a week, for at least 30 minutes every day. Start by exercising for 10 minutes daily if you are just getting started.

Some examples of aerobic exercises are:

  • A brisk walk
  • Going on a bike ride
  • Swimming

Balance training

You may experience stiffness and weakness due to peripheral neuropathy. Through balance training you can strengthen your muscles and reduce tightness. You can also prevent falls by improving your balance.

You should start balance training with leg lifts and calf raises.

Side leg raise

  1. Steady yourself by holding onto a chair or counter.
  2. Maintain a straight posture with your feet slightly apart.
  3. Lift one leg sideways and hold it for 5–10 seconds.
  4. Slowly lower the leg.
  5. Do the same with the other leg.
  6. As your balance improves, try this exercise without holding on to the counter.

Calf raise

  1. Using a chair or counter, steady your balance.
  2. Lift both heels off the ground so you are on your toes.
  3. Slowly lower yourself back to the ground.
  4. Repeat 10–15 times.

Stretching exercises

Stretching makes your body more flexible and warms it up for other physical activity. Regular stretching can also reduce the likelihood of injury while exercising.

Calf stretch

  1. Step forward with one foot with your toe pointing forward.
  2. Slightly bend your front leg and lean forward while keeping the heel on your back leg planted on the floor.
  3. Stay in this position for 15 seconds.
  4. Repeat three times.
  5. Switch legs.

Seated hamstring stretch

  1. Sit on the edge of your chair.
  2. Bring one leg forward, toe pointing upward.
  3. Bend your opposite knee with your foot flat on the floor.
  4. Stretch your muscles by positioning your chest over your straight leg and straightening your back until you feel a stretch.
  5. Hold this position for at least 15 seconds.
  6. Do this three times per leg.
