The first message on my office voicemail this morning put a big smile on my face. One of my newest patients called to say, “Dr. Tanase, whatever you’ve done, it’s working! I can’t believe it… The neuropathy in my legs has been GONE for two whole days now. It’s incredible! Thank you for whatever you did. I just had to call and tell you. Thank you!!!”
This delightful patient originally came into the office for neck pain relief, not having any idea that Upper Cervical care could benefit more than just her neck! It’s exciting to help patients who’ve been told nothing can be done for their problem.
According to the Neuropathy Association, “Peripheral Neuropathy is caused by damage to your body’s peripheral nerves. This damage disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. It is like the body’s wiring system breaking down. If ignored, peripheral neuropathy can lead to numbness, pain, weakness and incoordination.”
Chiropractic care can play an important role in improving quality of life for neuropathy sufferers. Chiropractors restore balanced communication to the nervous system. With the patient mentioned above, such an imbalance was found using Computerized Thermal Imaging. After correcting it, she not only experienced relief from her chronic neck pain, but also noticed improvements in her legs.
Many patients suffering from neuropathy pain assume that they’ll never recover from it. In this video interview, however, Aaron Vinick, MD, PhD, explains that, “Neuropathy is the probably the only truly reversible complication of diabetes… if you recognize it early enough.”
The sooner this problem is addressed, the better!
