Learn more on this page about neuropathy and how it is diagnosed. We also offer a description of how we treat neuropathy with our electro-medical device ca;;ed Sanexas and associated techniques.
Neuropathy is a condition in which the peripheral nerves (the nerves in your body, aside from your spinal cord and brain) are damaged and/or not working correctly.
Approximately 21 million Americans are affected by peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes is the leading cause of peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathic pain is characterized by pain and numbness in the feet and lower legs, balance problems and a variety of uncomfortable feelings. It can be quite debilitating, and affects more than 8% of the population.
Patients who have been treated at our clinic are now reporting life changing benefits. Find out more about these advanced treatments.
Dr. Odell and Dr. Mehdi discuss neuropathy in chemotherapy patients.
Diagnosing Peripheral Neuropathy
Most often, a doctor should be able to diagnose your peripheral neuropathy solely on the description of your symptoms and a simple neurological examination. Sometimes, however, we order a nerve test. An accurate and superior neurodiagnostic test is utilized in our clinic. This test is a non-invasive and painless procedure that tests nerve pathways with small amounts of electrical current at several nerve points to accurately determine the source of the pain.
The Neuropathy & Pain Center of America has developed a safe and effective treatment for patients who suffer from any form of neuropathy. The clinic protocol, co-developed and fine-tuned by Dr. Odell over the last 7-8 years, consists of treatment with low dose pharma/nutrient infused local anesthetic blocks combined with a highly advanced electro-medical device called Sanexas. This device is much more advanced than common TENS devices with which many patients may be familiar. It operates with such a high degree of sophistication that nerves are not able to accommodate to the signals, or “learn” and regress. This protocol is called the Combined Electrochemical Treatment (CET); we are signaling nerve cells with electronic impulses instead of smothering them with drugs which have side effects. The technique enables the nerve cells to heal in a majority of cases; the results achieved will usually not regress.
Although the treatment is a process which must be done over weeks, many of our patients with >10 years of suffering from neuropathy have enjoyed significant improvement. Many have discontinued use of walking aids, begun meaningful exercise, and stopped taking pain medications. Many are able to sleep better, walk much better by seeing balance problems go away, and realize an amazing improvement in their quality of life.
One patient claims “After receiving this treatment I no longer suffer from sleep problems due to leg pain and my mobility and overall quality of life has improved by 80%.”
