New Drug-Free Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy

Share Article

The treatment of Peripheral Neuropathy has always been frustrating, for both the physician and the patient. While powerful pain medications and antidepressants are often used, the results have been poor. Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP has found that Low Level Laser Therapy has often shown benefits where medications have failed.

For many patients, Low Level Laser Therapy has been the turning point for healing after everything else has failed.

Many patients have consulted Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP looking for non-drug and non-surgical solutions to relieve their chronic pain. Many had experienced adverse reactions and side effects to pain medications. The use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) has been linked to stomach ulcers, kidney damage, heart attacks, and strokes. The use of Low Level Laser Therapy has often been their answer.

Low Level Laser Therapy received FDA market clearance for use in the treatment of chronic pain in 2001. Since then, medical doctors, osteopaths, and Chiropractors have been successfully using it instead of pain medications for many chronic muscular pains. Recent research has also provided treatment clearance for Lasers as of 2011 in the healing of wounds. The question continues if Laser Therapy is effective for chronic nerve pains.

Much research continues to be done in the use of Low Level Laser Therapy for various health conditions, both by the manufacturers and by practitioners. Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin Chiropractor Dr. J G Moellendorf, DC, ND, LCP reports, “The clinical results we sometimes see from using Lasers with [peripheral neuropathies almost seem miraculous. Not only do we see dramatic reductions and even total elimination of chronic pain, we are seeing increased circulation in the extremities. Where the skin had been cold and dark blue or purple, we’re seeing healthy pink, warm, and supple skin. Some patients could not walk because of the agonizing pain of each step, and are now walking with no pain. Patients who have suffered with the problems of peripheral neuropathy for years are often regaining pain-free lives while eliminating their medications. For many patients, Low Level Laser Therapy has been the turning point for healing after everything else has failed.”

The results of Low Level Laser Therapy almost seem too good to be true. However, scientific research has demonstrated that specific frequencies of Laser energy stimulate the cell’s mitochondria to convert the light energy into chemical energy. This increases the amount of ATP, which stimulates the healing process through protein synthesis and increased cellular proliferation. This explains why Laser Therapy actually heals the underlying causes of peripheral neuropathy, rather than just masking the symptoms.

For many peripheral neuropathy sufferers, Low Level Laser Therapy has been found to be a viable alternative to pain medications and other therapies in increasing the healing process without adverse effects.
