Charleston, SC (PRWEB) March 13, 2014
Recent numbers by the American Diabetes Association show that over 25 million Americans suffer from diabetes. Peripheral neuropathy pain in diabetes is one of the most common symptoms to arrive from this condition. Neuropathy pain is a chronic inflammation to a nerve outside of the central nervous system. Diabetes patients often suffer from severe foot pain, inflammation, and swelling. A local Charleston medical office has now implemented a cutting-edge treatment for neuropathy pain. By combining a number of non-invasive therapies for foot pain, this office can help reverse the pain of diabetic neuropathy and help patients live without severe pain. By using nerve stimulation, nerve block medication and physical rehabilitation, neuropathic foot pain can be decreased and lessened.
Some of the known side-effects of peripheral neuropathy can be sensory changes such as hot and cold sensations, numbness or tingling. A common complaint of neuropathy sufferers is a feeling of ants walking up and down their legs. In addition to sensory changes to peripheral nerves, patients can lose the function of the nerves that are affected. Muscles can go into constant spasm or lose strength. They can have a loss of balance and lose the ability to walk up stairs or do many of the normal activities they used to do. The most common muscle complaint that neuropathy sufferers have is constant muscle cramping in their feet or legs.
