There are safe and effective pain relief treatments for neuropathy available right here in Central Florida. If you’ve been dealing with the numbness and tingling in your hands and feet that come with peripheral neuropathy and are ready for real relief, we can help.
One of the main treatments we offer for neuropathy is platelet-rich plasma therapy, also called PRP therapy. This treatment relies on the healing qualities found within the patient’s own blood to help encourage and enhance the natural healing process within the body.
A small sample of the patient’s blood is drawn and processed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelets. This potent serum, rich with healing components like cytokines and growth factors, is then injected into the area where the tissue has been damaged. These platelets then signal the body to begin healing the area and get to work.
There is minimal discomfort during the process, and it is done on an outpatient basis. Most patients are back to their normal routines the same day and will notice signs of recovery for weeks and even months to come.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where the nerves in the extremities (hands and feet mostly) have been damaged, and cellular communication and performance are impaired. The condition can be irritating at the least and painful and restrictive for most.
Symptoms of neuropathy include:
- Stabbing pain
Some of the most common causes of neuropathy include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Liver disease
- Metabolic problems
- Exposure to toxins
While many neuropathy patients are prescribed medications like painkillers, anti-seizure medicines, and even antidepressants to help with the pain from their neuropathy, some are even recommended to get surgery.
Our goal is to find the source of our patient’s problems and address those naturally, so there is permanent pain relief and a return to the activities and lifestyle you love.
If you would prefer to go a more natural, less invasive route, with fewer risks and complications (and not to mention lower cost), PRP therapy for neuropathy might be right for you.
