Alternative to Gabapentin in treating Peripheral Neuropathy Pain and Balance Problems
By: Dr. Nicholas LaHood, D.C.
Finally, a safe alternative treatment that can actually stop peripheral neuropathy from getting worse. This FDA cleared and medically safe therapy can penetrate underneath the skin to stimulate the damaged nerves noninvasively in the feet and hands to stop peripheral neuropathy and improve balance.
This is Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT), this therapy is also called Photo-Biomodulation Therapy (PBTM). It has been investigated because of its relationship with the tissue recovery process, such as nerve damage. There are over 54 articles documented in peer related journals and, medical reviewed journals that PBMT will accelerate the process of nerve regeneration. It does this by increasing several different cellular factors which will increase the number of myelinated fibers in the nerve.
Improvement in Electrical Function of Nerve Tissue
Decrease in Pain!
Release of Growth Factors
Increase in Collagen
Increase in Vascular Network
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) now referred to as Photo-biomodulation therapy (PBMT) uses infa-red light spectrum lasers. This spectrum of light creates tissue bio stimulation, creating a photochemical reaction. It has been shown to create tissue repair in bone and peripheral nerves. There are a long list of patients who have stopped their nerve damage from progressing and improved their balance.
