Peripheral neuropathy is a really painful condition and unfortunately, many people do not realize they can get relief with acupuncture until they have endured its symptoms for a while. We see this often at our practice, patients who seek help as their last resort after years or months of dealing with this uncomfortable condition. It really takes a toll on you, you might feel like sharp river rocks or "pins and needles" in your feet or hands. The root of this is the lack of blood flow to the nerves in your hands or feet, which leads to the degeneration of them due to the lack of nutrients. Peripheral Neurophaty can be caused by chemotherapy, diabetes or may start on its own. Regardless of the cause, we have achieved great success treating Neurophaty of all types through our personalized treatments.
At Bodhi we treat neuropathy, eliminate or greatly reduce its symptoms and get our patients back to doing what they love. And we’re doing it without the use of prescription medications and invasive surgeries. Dr. Andrea explains: “Acupuncture is amazing at promoting blood circulation and stimulating damaged nerves preventing them from dying off. This provides your nerves with the proper nutrients to heal and repair”.
Patients like Mike R. have experienced this first hand "Dr. Andrea's treatments for me have improved my neuropathy to the point that I have feelings in my legs and foot."
Success stories like Mike’s are not atypical for us. “We have a 90% success rate in treating neuropathy” shares Dr. Andrea.
The number of treatments needed to allow the nerves to fully recover will vary from person to person. Our patient MR says “Within the first visit I could feel relief in my feet”.
