What is it?

Burning or tingling can be one of the most challenging symptoms to treat in the foot. The number one reason patients have burning of tingling in the foot is neuropathy. Neuropathy is a disfunction of the sensory nerves in the lower extremity. The most common cause for neuropathy is diabetes. High levels of glucose in the body can attack the nerves and lead to burning and tingling. There are other causes including medications, alcoholism and exposure to toxic metals. Additionally, about 60% of neuropathy is idiopathic, meaning we are unable to identify a cause. Neuropathy typically gets worse as time goes on and can become quite debilitating for patients.

How can we help?

We understand how frustrating neuropathy can be and how emotionally taxing it can become. Our goal is to help identify the cause and to help decrease the factors that make it worse. We have now established a protocol that significantly reduces the symptoms of neuropathy. Recently I had a patient tell me he felt his feet for the first time in 10 years. We have a combination approach that is extremely successful. We utilize an FDA approved laser for neuropathy in combination with some vitamin supplements that are specifically designed for nerve pain.

If you are suffering from neuropathy or fibromyalgia we can help, schedule an appointment today. Give us a call at 425-391-8666 or make an appointment online.
