Neuropathy can affect both the central nervous system and the peripheral nerves in our body, though the peripheral nerves are much more commonly affected. While there is not a cure for neuropathy, there have been new developments in the treatment of nerves and nerve regeneration. The peripheral nerves have the unique ability to go through restoration if the underlying problems have been addressed. Standard medical treatments for neuropathy are built solely to manage pain. With chiropractic care, you can develop a plan to correct the underlying causes of your neuropathy, and in time, begin to regenerate your peripheral nerves.
Neuropathy gradually progressives over time. In the beginning, some patients report feeling numbness or tingling in the fingers or toes. When left untreated, the numbness begins to spread around the body and evolves into prickling pain. As the neuropathy spreads, patients begin to have issues maintaining their balance. Frequent falls do start to occur during normal daily activities for some neuropathy patients. This is when patients typically turn to chiropractic care over traditional medical treatments.
How Nerve Regeneration Can Heal Neuropathy Pain
While conventional medicine serves to reduce pain, there is no plan for longterm healing or treatment of the disease. The number of neuropathy patients who are undergoing corrective chiropractic care has been growing exponentially. This is because more people are seeking alternative treatments to treat the underlying cause of their neuropathy without the risk of potential side effects from taking prescription medication.
With the proper chiropractic care, nutrition, and homeostasis in the body, our nerves are able to regenerate and heal themselves. This regeneration process may be the only way that neuropathy patients can hope to shorten their disease and find significant relief from their pain. Through chiropractic care, the goal is to release all of the tension in the body and to correct the underlying causes of your neuropathy so that the healthier the body is, the more likely the body will naturally facilitate the nerve regeneration process.

Vibration therapy has been used since the early 1900s to improve circulation and alleviate constipation. Several years later, researchers who were using vibration therapy to improve circulation began to notice that these patients were experiencing an increase in bone density and muscle mass as well. After more research, vibration therapy was adopted by NASA and used on astronauts to improve their body’s bone density and muscle mass before and after space travel.
How does vibration therapy work?
There are two types of vibration therapy: whole body therapy and targeted vibration therapy. For whole body therapy, you may be asked to sit or lay on a machine that is supported by a vibration platform. Whole body therapy aims to reduce inflammation and help your whole body recover quicker. Targeted vibration therapy is done with a handheld treatment device that your chiropractor will use to stimulate localized areas around the body. The vibrations that are transmitted into your body cause the muscles to contract and relax.
Vibration therapy and chiropractic care
With chiropractic care, you are working with your chiropractor to treat the underlying conditions in your body that may be causing your pain. When you combine chiropractic care with vibration therapy, we are not only able to correct the underlying conditions but also restore bone loss and help prevent symptoms from arising in the future. Using vibration therapy to supplement your chiropractic care has been shown to reduce joint and back pains, improve circulation, and reduce stress.

The ReBuilder® is totally different from any other treatment system offered anywhere in the world to treat your painful symptoms of nerve pain (neuropathy).
The patented ReBuilder utilizes the latest state-of-the-art electronic technology such as machine-based learning, and the most powerful and technologically advanced Computer Processing Units (CPUs) which are the first CPUs built on nano-meter metrics. Additionally, the ReBuilder utilizes multiple bio-feedback loops that enable the device to measure and analyze the patient’s nerve function before, during, and after the treatment. This means that every 13 hundredths of a second, the ReBuilder is responding to your individual physiological status, creating, and delivering a unique signal.
Imagine if you will, that the ReBuilder acts as an ECG (electro cardiogram) to measure the heart’s function and the ReBuilder also acts as a heart pacemaker to correct dysfunction. The difference is the ReBuilder corrects dysfunction of your nerves, does both of things simultaneously and you control everything in the comfort of your own home.
What does this mean for you? It means that you are getting the very latest technology possible to restore your full mobility and relief from your symptoms. Rather than simply numbing your nerves like drugs or other TENS-like devices (essentially ineffective and potentially dangerous “toys” you can buy at Amazon or any drug-store without a prescription), the ReBuilder is a full strength prescription device. The ReBuilder is able to calm down your overactive nerves and wake up your under active nerves. Additionally, the ReBuilder’s healing signals include electronic muscle stimulation which automatically strengthens nearby calf muscles (or arm muscles when used for hand pain), and increases local blood flow to enhance permanent healing.
Each 30 minute treatment is the equivalent in exercise to your legs as a 30 minute brisk walk. Because you are sitting in your easy chair at home you get the benefits of the exercise and blood flow without moving your ankles, knees, and hips, this may prove to be an important feature for those neuropathy patients suffering from joint problems.
