Neuropathy is damage or disease which affects nerves in the body. To understand neuropathy, one must understand how the nervous system works. The nervous system is comprised of two parts: the peripheral nervous system, which connects the nerves running from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (from eyes, mouth, arms and hands to internal organs, to legs and feet) and the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord. Neuropathy, also referred to as peripheral neuropathy, occurs when there is damage to the nerves, inhibiting them from sending messages from the brain and spinal cord to the other parts of the body. At Regenerative Medical Center of Delaware, we offer both pain management and regenerative cellular therapies to not only treat your neuropathy symptoms but to heal the root cause.
Are You Experiencing These Common Neuropathy Symptoms?
Neuropathy affects approximately 6-7% of the population in the U.S., and can be caused by diseases such as leprosy, auto-immune disease, infections, diabetes, vitamin deficiency, or certain medications (such as medications for chemotherapy). Some of the symptoms of neuropathy include:
- Numbness or a burning sensation (tingling) in the feet or hands
- Fine muscle twitching
- Painful cramps
- Muscle loss
- Bone degeneration
- Changes in skin, hair and nails
Neuropathy Treatments: Pain Management and Cellular Therapy
Regenerative medicine is a natural safe and effective alternative to traditional treatments for neuropathy. Unlike traditional approaches including the use of opioids, costly therapies and painful surgeries, regenerative medicine offers effective treatment options with little to no risk or side effects. Stem celltreatments target the damaged nerves affected by neuropathy, which relieves chronic pain. Stem cells have the unique ability to replicate and create new, healthy cells, while repairing damaged tissue. The best stem cells to use for neuropathy are fat derived, embryonic, or bone marrow.
We offer the following treatments for neuropathy:
- Cellular therapy – including Exosome Therapy or Amniotic Fluid
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
- Steroid injections
