Acupuncture For Neuropathy


Research has shown that acupuncture can improve neuropathy. Acupuncture can improve Nerve Conduction and help conditions like Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy, Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Bell’s Palsy, Sciatic Nerve Pain and more. For neuropathic issues, acupuncture should only be used in conjunction with western medical treatment.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is often a painful and debilitating condition that is a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system, which is a complex system of nerves that connects the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to the rest of the body. Treatment of these symptoms begins with proper management of diabetes, which also plays a crucial role in treating diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Research has shown that acupuncture can help regenerate damaged nerves in Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy and Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy.

Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy that is caused from the drugs and chemotherapy to treat cancer, which damage the peripheral nerves in the process. This condition is a very troubling side-effect of chemotherapy, as the body is already sensitive to pain, and it can cause the patient further pain.

Sciatic and lumbar pain can occur as a result of many different conditions pertaining to the lower back. Typically, sciatic pain occurs on one side of the lower body, and often times the pain is present from the lower back, through the thigh, and down the leg. The sciatic nerve reaches from the lower back all the way to the toes, and depending on where the nerve is being pinched, a person’s pain can be felt from the toes to the lower back.

Biomedical Acupuncture is a modern method that is the most effective style of acupuncture to help with neuropathy.

Testimonials


I’ve pushed my body to its limits with nearly 20 years in the NHL. Todd helped me by working on some tight, over-trained muscles. Todd’s deep muscle and fascia work also helped get me through some tough pre-season training. I would recommend Todd to family, friends and team mates.

IAN LAPERRIÈRE

ASSISTANT COACH, PHILADELPHIA FLYERS

Todd has an ability to identify and work out small problems before they become big problems. Regular treatments are as important to my training and injury prevention as any exercises I do at the gym or track. I’d recommend Todd to any athlete who wants to train consistently and without pain.

ERIN DONOHUE

PROFESSIONAL TRACK ATHLETE, 2008 BEIJING OLYMPICS

I was shocked at the immediate relief I hadn’t had in years! From back injuries, to hips, shoulders and more, Todd has yet to let me down and has treated each with the same great results consistently. I feel like a “new” person when I walk out of his office! My muscles, joints and tendons are ready for some more action on the mat!
