What Is Neuropathy and How to Successfully Treat It?
Neuropathy, the feeling of shooting or burning pain that can be felt practically in any area of the body, in some cases simply stops on its own. However, in some instances, it grows into a chronic issue, particularly if it is severe and debilitating, requiring medical attention. Adequate and continual treatment is needed to put the pain under control.
The direct cause of neuropathy is the disease or dysfunction of one or several peripheral nerves. This peripheral nerve damage could occur due to multiple reasons such as injury, amputation, chemotherapy, multiple sclerosis, alcoholism, and diabetes. The treatments include regular intake of antidepressants and painkillers. On the other hand, physical and relaxation therapy proved to be an excellent alternative to medication.
One of the most efficient treatments for neuropathy is horizontal therapy. The bioelectrical current this method deploys has been very successful in providing neuropathy pain relief. When it comes to treating neuropathy caused by diabetes, the Pulse Electromagnetic Field Therapy that uses pulses of low-level electromagnetic radiation has been proven particularly effective.
