Peripheral Neuropathy

What is neuropathy?

Boston Neuropathy Doctor​Neuropathy is a painful condition that interferes with the body’s ability to transmit signals to internal organs, joints, muscles, and skin. Over 20 million Americans currently suffer from neuropathy (also called peripheral neuropathy), which is caused by harm to the nerves running through the legs and arms. Neuropathy refers to a range of health problems concerning damage to peripheral nerves. This lack of signaling can interfere with normal feeling and sensation in the arms and legs, limit muscle movement, and cause numbness or intense pain.

Neuropathy can be debilitating and frustrating. Our ReliefCare Neuropathy Solutions Breakthrough program for patients with peripheral neuropathy, helping you to become functional once again.

What causes neuropathy?

Neuropathy (nerve damage) may results from a wide set of conditions, including chemotherapy and diabetes. The conditions are often irreversible, but neuropathy can be managed with careful lifestyle changes, diet, and treatment.

If left untreated, neuropathy can lead to muscle deterioration, loss of balance and coordination, amputation of legs, feet, hands, or fingers, and permanent disability.

The common symptoms of neuropathy:

• Burning sensations in the hands, arms, feet, or legs ("pins and needles")
• Loss of sensation in extremities
• Numbness and weakness
• Pain or tingling

Additional causes:

• Injuries
• Exposure to toxins
• Infections
• Degenerative Disc Disease

Why do most treatments fail?

If you are like most people, your doctor prescribed medication to cover up the symptoms. Medications such as Lyrica, Gabapentin, Cymbalta, and Neurontin may not always work, and have been known to have dangerous side-effects. Others have tried antiquated treatments to relieve neuropathy symptoms, such as Marcaine injections with electric stimulation applied to their legs or arms. When these treatments don’t work you are told to “just live with it.”

How we use ReliefCare to treat neuropathy

Many people with neuropathy have a hard time finding relief using medicinal methods, which treat the symptom but don’t provide a cure. Physical therapy or alternative treatments alone don’t always give the needed results. Neuropathy is a symptom of a medical situation, so the physiological and biomechanical conditions must be addressed.

My neuropathy solution treatment increases blood flow to the nerves in the feet and/or hands, which helps to rejuvenate nerves naturally and return your feet and/or hands to normal. No surgery. No addictive medications.

One of the premier treatments to increase blood flow is our new Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT).  LLLT is one of the most powerful non-surgical lasers on the market today and it gets results.

The light therapy signals Vasoendolithal Growth (VEGF), which signals the production of angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the creation of new blood vessels, which is needed to repair nerve damage. 

These blood vessels grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.

We also use state of the art digital electro therapeutic stimulation to assist in the growth of the nerves called Nerve ReEducation. This is used by the Cancers Centers of America in order to help those going through Chemotherapy rebuild the nerves. Nerve ReEducation can even be done at home, so therapy can be done daily! The results can be immediate in both pain relief and restoration of normal sensation.

Nerve cells need two things to heal: Fuel, and Activation.

This makes the combination of high-powered lower level light therapy (FUEL) and  Electro Therapeutic Nerve ReEducation (ACTIVATION) the perfect 1-2 punch for nerve regeneration!

The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation.

Dr.Cordima uses an innovative and comprehensive set of techniques called ReliefCare to address the symptoms and causes of neuropathy. Our process addresses neuropathy in three ways: First, we treat the origin of the pain to quickly achieve relief. Next, we address structural issues in the body to fight and prevent further degradation, preventing additional pain. Lastly, we reestablish function so the body can improve and heal to minimize the occurrence of additional neuropathy problems.

It is VERY important that you DO NOT WAIT - Here's Why

We have helped even the most severe peripheral neuropathy cases, but we do not accept every patient. If you have sustained 85%+ damage to your nerves, it is very unlikely that we can help you. Waiting could result in permanent disability. Our ReliefCare treatment program has a remarkable success rate, and gives the damaged nerves a chance to heal naturally.

Our office is located minutes from Boston and is centrally located between Arlington, Medford, Somerville and Cambridge.  Patients come to us from all over so why don't you schedule an appointment today.
