Don't let the pain and numbness of peripheral neuropathy rob you of a normal life.
As you may have experienced, neuropathy is often painful and can put limits on your life. Put simply, peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage resulting from poor blood flow to nerves in the feet, legs and hands. Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes, but may also be caused by circulatory problems, medications, chemotherapy, alcohol, AIDS, and unknown causes.
Each month, thousands of people with neuropathy are getting relief from their foot and leg pain.
Our clinically proven program may reduce the discomfort of neuropathy and help our patients recapture the life they once enjoyed. More than 5,000 therapists, nurses and doctors are now using and recommending this comprehensive therapy program at Anodyne Neuropathy Care CentersSM in virtually every state in the country.
What is our approach to caring for those with neuropathy?
We begin with an individual assessment of the functional difficulties you are experiencing. We ask you how you would like to improve, and then design a specialized therapy program to help you reach your personal goals.
Why do we used Anodyne as part of our comprehensive therapy program?
Anodyne emits infrared photo energy to increase circulation and temporarily reduce pain in the area it is applied. It has been designed to maximize the effectiveness of infrared photo energy by using highly efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) placed in direct skin contact. The Moor Scanning Laser Doppler Images on the right show just how substantial these increases in circulation can be in the feet of a patient with diabetic neuropathy.
What should you expect from our program?
Most patients say that Anodyne Therapy feels warm and soothing. Others say they feel some tingling and pulsing. This is normal as blood flow returns to the area. Some patients respond very quickly in our comprehensive program, while others take longer based on their degree of impairment. We will work with you as long as you are willing and we can continue to show that your conditions is improving.
Will my pain be reduced?
Pain is often the first symptom to improve in our program, while functional improvements may take more therapy. Several pain studies involving more than 1,000 patients have been done using Anodyne Therapy. These studies show that, while not every patient experiences pain relief, 87-89% report excellent to total pain relief after receiving a comprehensive therapy program.
Are there any side effects?
No side effects have been reported as long as Anodyne Therapy is properly used and monitored. If you have diabetes, check you blood sugars often during any change in therapy or activity. Always follow the direction of your doctor or therapist when using Anodyne Therapy.
If this therapy for you?
Our comprehensive therapy protocols that include Anodyne are not for everyone. If you are pregnant or have an active cancer, there are special cautions when using this therapy. Ask your doctor if this program is right for you.
Will I need ongoing treatment?
Your therapist or doctor may recommend home exercises to help you continue to improve. They may also suggest continued use of Anodyne Therapy at home for ongoing pain relief and to help you maintain your circulation. Medicare or your private insurance may cover the Anodyne Therapy Home system with a doctor's prescription.
