Pain Relief Partners

Neuropathy Treatment

At Pain Relief Partners, non-invasive medical procedures are used for neuropathy treatment in Vancouver, Washington. Neuropathy is a condition of the nervous system which affects somewhere around twenty million Americans, and is commonly treated through medication, often with highly addictive drugs. Here at Pain Relief Partners, in Vancouver, Washington, neuropathy treatment is something we choose to do differently. That’s because we believe in treating patients as whole people, not as collections of symptoms. We work to solve problems with solutions that are non-invasive, such as nerve blocks, chiropractic care, lumbar decompression, and neuropathy lights and boots to help increase circulation. Offering an alternative to the traditional medical approach, Pain Relief Partners helps people live more healthful, productive, and active lives. Using the combined expertise of medical and chiropractic personnel, we are able to achieve the best possible clinical results for our patients. Starting with a comprehensive physical exam and diagnostic assessment, our practitioners work to find out which approach is the right one for you, in order to design a plan of care specifically for you and your clinical condition.

At Pain Relief Partners, located in Vancouver, Washington, symptoms of neuropathy are not our only concern. We focus on actually correcting the underlying cause. Preferring physical medicine to medication, we use a wide range of non-invasive treatments to improve each patient’s quality of life. We do not only want to help you to feel better, we also want to make sure we affect your total overall health in the best way possible. Neuropathy may be caused by a disease process, a trauma, or may be inherited, Often, a specific cause cannot be identified, and this is called idiopathic neuropathy. Known causes of peripheral neuropathy include: physical injury or trauma, autoimmune disease, cancer, metabolic and endocrine disorders, small vessel disease, infections (shingles, Lyme disease, etc.), kidney disorders, neuromas, and exposure to toxins (medications such as chemotherapy, environmental or industrial toxins, or heavy alcohol consumption).

At Pain Relief Partners we use stem cells or a combination of lidocaine and bupivacaine (both local anesthetics) injected under ultrasound guidance. This helps to promote blood flow, increasing the circulation to the small vessels of the feet and providing an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients to these small vessels. With time, this will help to decrease the symptoms associated with neuropathy. We also offer ancillary treatments including deep tissue laser therapy, monochromatic light therapy, lumbar (lower back) decompression, and compression boots. Each of these therapies also help promote increased circulation and “wake up” the feet and increase your quality of life!

One of the underlying causes of Neuropathy is diminished microcirculation to the small peripheral nerves. These nerves are located within the layers of the skin. These are microscopic – we cannot see them, but there are thousands of them per square inch. Each nerve needs a blood supply to stay healthy.

Neuropathy, or diseased nerves lack oxygen. That’s where the Healthlight boots come in. These boots are a photo-modulated device. Photo-modulation describes light waves at a specific wavelength that have biological properties that stimulate cellular regeneration. In other words, these lights have been clinically proven to heal nerve damaged tissue.

The light stimulates the production of Nitric Oxide. Nitric Oxide is a natural way the body uses to increase blood flow. This Nitric Oxide occurs in blood vessels, and stimulate dilation of the smooth muscles of the blood vessels. This dilation increases blood flow to the damaged nerves. As more blood, oxygen and nutrients become available to the diseased nerve the cell is able to produce more cellular energy. This energy is called Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). The newly produced energy drives regenerative capacity to heal the cell. In other words, the light energy jumpstarts the cell. Light energy is converted to cellular energy to get the cell functioning again. This energy drives the healing of the cell. Neuropathy patients have less pain and more sensations after using the Healthlight therapy.

Neuropathy may be caused by a disease process, a trauma, or be inherited. Often, a specific cause cannot be identified, and this is called idiopathic neuropathy.

Known causes of acquired peripheral neuropathy include:
Physical injury or trauma
Autoimmune diseases
Cancer
Metabolic and endocrine disorders
Small vessel disease
Infections (shingles, Lyme disease, etc.)
Kidney disorders
Neuromas
Exposure to toxins (medications such as chemotherapy, environmental or industrial toxins, or heavy alcohol consumption)

At Pain Relief Partners, we use stem cells or a combination of lidocaine and bupivicaine (both local anesthetics) injected under ultrasound guidance. This helps to promote blood flow, increasing the circulation to the small vessels of the feet and providing an increased supply of oxygen and nutrients to these small vessels. With time, this will help to decrease the symptoms associated with neuropathy. We also offer ancillary treatments including cold laser therapy, monochromatic light therapy, lumbar (lower back) decompression, and compression boots. Each of these therapies also help promote increased circulation and “wake up” the feet and increase your quality of life!
