12 Feb What Are The 4 Major Types of Peripheral Neuropathy?
The 4 main types of peripheral neuropathy: Sensory peripheral neuropathy – damage to the peripheral nerves that carry messages of touch, temperature, pain, vibration, pressure, and other sensations to the brain. Motor peripheral neuropathy – damage to the nerves that control muscles and movements, such as walking and lifting. Autonomic peripheral neuropathy – damage to the nerves that control involuntary bodily processes, such as breathing, digestion, blood pressure, and bladder function. Mononeuropathy Peripheral Neuropathy – damage to a single nerve outside of the central nervous system. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome being the most common type.
What is the major cause of Peripheral Neuropathy?
Health nerves receive oxygenated blood and nutrition through microscopic capillaries. Damage and/or obstruction to these small blood vessels as a result of high blood sugar, toxins, mechanical entrapment restricts the transfer of oxygen and nutrition to the nerve cells causing nerve cell death.
Diabetic patients are at a very high risk because these small capillaries of people with diabetes can become obstructed when a large amount of glucose fills the bloodstream. This glucose
obstruction prevents the nerve tissues from receiving the nutrients and oxygen needed for health functioning nerves.
Peripheral neuropathy is a serious diabetes complication and is estimated to affect up to 80% of people with diabetes. The feet are the most common area of the body where the nerves are damaged as a result of high blood sugar resulting in the need for peripheral neuropathy treatment.
Dr. Alfonso‘s Neuropathy Treatment Protocol utilizes 8 specialized peripheral neuropathy treatments designed to improve the supply of oxygen, eliminate waste, and improve nutrition to damaged nerves. Increased circulation to the damaged peripheral nerves combined with treatments to stimulate peripheral nerve cell regeneration, and repair.
Dr. Alfonso Neuropathy Treatment Protocol
Improves and increases oxygen and nutrition through the increase of circulation to the damaged nerves.
Repairs peripheral fibers by stimulating regenerative of new nerve cells.
Removes and eliminates mechanical peripheral nerve entrapments and compressions in the spine and extremities
These unique treatments not only increase circulation rehabilitating the cause of neuropathy but also stimulates electrical and chemical processes to relieve pain and prompt nerve tissue healing. This stimulation at a cellular level facilitates the body’s natural repair mechanisms to heal damaged tissues, relieve pain, and stimulate nerve cell growth.
Dr. Alfonso will select the best treatment therapy combination, frequency, nutritional plan, and home support determined from your consultation, examination and diagnostics.
How much does the Dr. Alfonso Neuropathy treatment cost?
At Neuropathy Relief Center of Miami, each patient’s treatment recommendations are individualized and developed from the individual’s neuropathy examination/diagnostics, severity, chronicity,
function loss and peripheral nerve damage. The treatment recommendations and cost of care are not the same for all neuropathy patients. Each patient’s financial investment must be determined from the individualized neuropathy consultation and evaluation. After the examination is completed and studied the patient will receive a report of findings and notification of acceptance into our neuropathy treatment program. During this meeting you will receive a financial review and breakdown of the cost for neuropathy treatment and your personalized treatment plan.
