How Does Infrared Light Therapy Work?

Relying on 10-15 years of scientific research, light therapy has been shown to stimulate the nerves that cause pain. We see that neuropathy patients have damage to the small vessels in their feet. This can lead to poor circulation and pain, consequently. Light Therapy Treatment allows water, oxygen and nutrients to be drawn back into the damaged cells.

When stimulated with infrared light energy, the cell begins to repair at a faster rate. Each treatment builds on the previous one and, if paired with a comprehensive treatment program, a difference can be felt in as little as 2-3 treatments.

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy refers to the conditions that result when nerves that connect to the brain and spinal cord from the rest of the body are damaged or diseased, usually the lower legs and feet or the wrists and hands

Damage to these nerves interrupts communication between the brain and other parts of the body and can impair muscle movement, prevent normal sensation in the arms and legs, and cause pain. Neuropathy can affect nerves that control muscle movement (motor nerves) and those that detect sensations such as coldness or pain (sensory nerves).
 
Peripheral neuropathies are common, especially among people over the age of 55.

Common Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

Neuropathy can be caused by environmental factors such as toxins, trauma, illness, or infection.
 
Known causes of acquired neuropathies include:
  • Diabetes is responsible for many cases of peripheral neuropathy
  • Several rare inherited diseases
  • Alcoholism
  • Poor nutrition or vitamin deficiency
  • Herniated discs in the back
 
  • Certain kinds of cancer
- Conditions where nerves are mistakenly attacked by the body's own immune system or damaged by an overaggressive response to injury
-Certain medications
-Kidney or thyroid disease
-Infections such as Lyme disease, shingles, or AIDS
 

Peripheral Neuropathy and Diabetes

If you have diabetes and peripheral neuropathy, it's critical that you carefully control your blood sugar levels. High blood sugar levels over time damage the blood vessels and nerves in your legs and feet.

- If you smoke, stop. Smoking makes circulatory problems worse, and it worsens the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. It also greatly increases the risk of heart disease in people with diabetes. Talk to your doctor about ways to quit smoking. Often, people turn to counseling and drug therapy such as nicotine patches, gum, or other aides. Anti-depressants can also help reduce cravings and help control pain from neuropathy at the same time.

- Carefully limit alcohol. Alcohol can worsen peripheral neuropathy and make it hard to control your blood sugar levels.

Treatment with Other Types of Therapies

- Traditional treatments such as anti-convulsant drugs (Neurontin, Gabapentin, Lyrica) and opiates (vicodin, hydrocodone, oxycontin) have little effect on the problem. These drugs are intended to treat the pain but the pain is not the cause. Hence when the drugs are stopped or taken for long periods the problem simply returns and can sometimes worsen.

- Some of our patients have even been told that they should have their nerves burned. Does this make sense to you?

- Physical Therapy works on the muscles and joints and can have a negative effect since the problem is not due to weak muscles or improperly moving joints, which still leaves the neuropathy problem.

- Chiropractic adjustments will help take the pressure of the nerves but are still not treating the actual nerves that are damaged.
