Mission Valley Neuropathy Treatment

Holding handsAccording to the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy®, an estimated 40 million Americans suffer from this condition. In simple terms, neuropathy refers to nerve damage that interferes with your body’s natural communication abilities.

Expert author, Dr. Britton is well-versed in caring for patients experiencing neuropathy and can assist those experiencing any type of this debilitating disorder.


How Neuropathy Affects Your Body

Your peripheral nerves carry signals from the brain and spinal cord. When there is damage to the peripheral nervous system, it’s like static on a telephone line that distorts or interrupts messages between the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This lack of communication can lead to symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain and weakness, often beginning in your hands or feet.

There are many forms of peripheral neuropathy, with diabetic neuropathy and chemotherapy-induced neuropathy being the most common. Your symptoms might go on for days, weeks or years, and may be acute or chronic.

What We Can Do for You

There is no cure for neuropathy. Early intervention, however, is key to ensuring you maintain a high quality of life. If not treated, your symptoms will likely worsen.

We don’t rely on medications to cover up your pain. Rather, Dr. Britton seeks to locate the underlying cause of your neuropathy to manage your case. He uses a nerve performance scan and Oswestry Disability Report which provide a vigorous analysis.

To get you on the path to pain-free living, we offer an array of approaches to your care. Here are some of the common symptoms associated with neuropathy and the methods we use to address this condition:

  • Inflammation: Low-level laser can effectively and painlessly ease the discomfort of inflammation as well as increase blood flow to damaged tissue.
  • Muscle pain and tightness: Manual therapy, deep tissue work and physiotherapy are effective in addressing muscle pain and tension. They also help to restore strength and rebuild normal tissue. We also use vibration platform training to retrain nerves and restore blood flow.
  • Nerve pain and degeneration: We offer the newest forms of high-powered laser and high-energy electrical stimulation to address these issues.

As part of our commitment to helping you recover as quickly as possible, we also provide home treatments, nutrition advice and infrared sauna.
