For those who are suffering from an inherited neuropathy, there is no direct medical cure currently in existence. For many of the neuropathy forms that have occurred as the result of disease or physical trauma, there are therapies such as calmare pain therapy that can be effective. The underlying condition and cause is treated first, switching to symptomatic treatment as the need arises.
Providing that the nerve cell itself has not been destroyed, the peripheral nerves of the body possess the ability to regenerate given enough time and no further damage. For neuropathy that was not inherited, it is possible to control the symptoms while working to eliminate the root cause to prevent more damage from occurring
Physician monitored wellness
The first step towards treating neuropathy is to achieve a better quality of life through adopting healthy habits. This will lead to a more healthy body and thus lead the body to better be able to regenerate the nerves that are damaged. Often the physician will craft a workout and a diet regime to be followed in order to achieve better health, and the patient should in turn avoid the in-take of toxins such as alcohol and tobacco. Timely treatment of wounds that have been suffered, and of chronic medical conditions, is also critical to minimizing the damage to the nerves.
Peripheral neuropathy damage that has occurred as a result of a systemic disease is often much more difficult to treat than simply having the patient live healthier. Autoimmune and inflammatory conditions can be combated with immunosuppressive drugs, and in some cases the patient can undergo a plasmapheresis-a procedure in an effort to cleanse the blood and prevent an auto-immune response. This is a procedure where a sample of blood is removed to have the antibodies and other immune cells removed before the blood is re-introduced into the patient. For those that are suffering from diabetic neuropathy, it is ideal to retain strict control of the blood glucose levels in order to diminish the neuropathic symptoms.
Patients suffering from chronic neuropathic pain have a number of options available, and is typically combated with a number of analgesics and prescribed pain-killers. In some rare cases it is possible for a doctor to administer a controlled cauterization of a pain-causing nerve, although this may potentially lead to other complications.
The Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment
When patients have severe chronic Peripheral neuropathy or have stopped responding to traditional treatments, the Calmare Therapy can be a godsend. It’s a non-invasive, pain free alternative treatment that uses electrodes to “scramble” the pain signal, reprogramming your body’s perception of pain. The Calmare machine lessens pain in 76% of patients on average, and within 2 weeks cancer, and non-cancer patients, reported being painfree.
Peripheral neuropathy has many available treatment options depending on the underlying cause and the severity. Contact your physician to see what options are available for treatment, and take the first step towards pain relief.
