Don’t Live with Painful Peripheral Neuropathy
Posted on December 24, 2018
Peripheral neuropathy was thrust into the spotlight this summer when Colorado State University football coach Mike Bobo announced via Twitter that he was in treatment for the condition after experiencing pain and numbness in his feet. Bobo joins the millions of Americans living with the pain and complications of peripheral neuropathy. The condition has no cure, but personal cell therapy from Park Avenue Stem Cell can help.
What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy develops when there is damage to the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are found in the limbs, head, neck, hands and feet. When these nerves become damaged, the result is pain, numbness, tingling and weakness. Peripheral neuropathy can even cause delays in wound healing.
What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?
The most common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. Kidney disease can also cause it, as can injury or viral infections, family history, exposure to toxins or chemicals, and alcoholism.
Ways to Reduce Your Risk
Take Care of Yourself. The most significant way you can reduce your risk of developing painful peripheral neuropathy is to manage your health. If you have diabetes or kidney disease, it is essential to visit your doctor regularly to make sure your condition is in check.
Exercise. Working out regularly increases blood and oxygen flow, two things that your nerves need to be healthy. We recommend that you exercise at least three days a week for at least 30 minutes to an hour. Be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin to make sure you are cleared to exercise.
Eat Healthily. Eating a healthy diet is a huge part of keeping your nerves healthy. A healthy diet is one that is rich in fruits and vegetables, lean meats and fish, and whole grains. Foods that are high in vitamin B-12 (eggs, low-fat dairy foods and fortified grains) also provide the nutritional support for your nerves.
Make Healthy Choices. In addition to working out and eating healthily, we recommend that you limit alcohol consumption and quit smoking or using tobacco.
Recognize the Symptoms. If you are experiencing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, schedule an appointment to talk to your doctor. Early intervention can mean slowing the progression of peripheral neuropathy. Your doctor may also introduce new strategies that can reduce your risk.
Fat Stem Cell Therapy and Peripheral Neuropathy
Conventional treatment for peripheral neuropathy includes painkillers, but not everyone benefits from this treatment. Some individuals don’t tolerate this treatment at all. For these people and for others who want to reduce the uncomfortable symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, Park Avenue Stem Cell offers personal cell therapy.
This regenerative treatment can help reduce the inflammation that causes the uncomfortable symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, which translates to healthy tissues and a reduced risk of complications, such as infection or delayed wound healing.
