Are You Dealing with Chronic Neuropathy?

Are You Dealing with Chronic Neuropathy?


Neuropathy occurs when nerve damage exists outside the spinal cord and the brain. Although each experience is unique with this condition, many people report pain, numbness, and weakness. It typically occurs in the hands and feet.


When neuropathy occurs, the discomfort feels like tingling, burning, or stabbing. If you’ve ever had a part of your body “fall asleep,” that sensation when it “wakes up” is similar to what this condition causes.


The problem with neuropathy is that the information from the central nervous system doesn’t have the two-way flow it needs for proper communication. That means it can cause other symptoms, such as circulation problems, urination issues, and digestive functions.


Neuropathy can result from a metabolic problem, an infection, an injury, toxin exposure, or even genetic inheritance. Diabetes is a common cause today, but it’s not uncommon for no reason to be identified.


Is it possible to treat something when your doctor doesn’t know what is causing the problem?


Are You Treating the Cause or the Symptoms?


If you’ve been diagnosed with neuropathy, the standard modern medical path looks something like this for most people. Maybe you can relate to it?


· You start to feel something unusual, perhaps in your hands or your feet.

· After it keeps bothering you for a couple of weeks, you decide to schedule an appointment with your doctor. That might entail a two- to six-week wait.

· When you finally get into the office, you might need to convince your primary care physician that a referral to a neuropathic specialist is necessary. That creates another potential delay.

· Once you see a specialist, you’re told that nothing can be done to help since there aren’t medications that help with the issue.

· You’re given a prescription to control the symptoms you experience, which start getting progressively worse.

· The prescription medication dosage keeps getting higher and higher, eventually causing other unwanted side effects.


Once you reach that final step, it’s not unusual for medical professionals to give their patients a shrug. “Wish I could do more to help,” you might hear.


What if there was more help out there that falls outside of the pharmaceuticals that treat only the symptoms and the doctors who say nothing can be done?


Neuropathy Improves When You Treat Its Root Cause


When patients eventually come to see us, they’re often at the end of their rope – or well past it. They’ve had diagnostic studies, seen numerous providers, and received multiple treatments.


Over the years, we’ve seen everything from spinal stimulator implants to nerve decompression surgeries. Some people have had electrical stimulation, lidocaine or steroid injections, and nerve ablation to find relief, all of which have proven unsuccessful.


Our treatment process follows a simple four-step recipe.


· Published Results. With over seven years of development, our treatment process is the only one of its kind that has been published for review and verification.

· Focused on the Patient. Our goal is to create authentic results for you, which means we take the time to listen to your concerns.

· Advanced Technology. We are constantly innovating, using today’s best tech to keep improving the processes used.

· Medication Free. Although medication is helpful for some conditions, having a long-term treatment plan that only involves symptom relief is an issue we find to be unacceptable. We want you to have a neuropathy success story.


The results of our methodology speak for themselves. 96% of our patients reported a 50% or greater improvement in their symptoms, while 85% reduced their intake of prescribed medication.


We can help you work toward balance and gait improvements. If you’re having trouble sleeping because of neuropathy, 78% of our patients report improvements in this area. A complete account of our research is available for review.


Why Does This Methodology Work When Other Methods Haven’t Helped?


The process developed by Dr. Bao Thai DC works from the premise that nerves and tissues can heal. Without that cornerstone in a treatment plan, there is no way to find a helpful solution.


An unfortunate fact about modern medicine is that doctors have already made up their minds about you and your symptoms. In 2018, CNBC reported that medical errors killed 250,000 people in the United States each year. [1]


Bias has also shown that medical professionals will downplay or dismiss a patient’s reported health concerns. [2]


The problem is an issue of trust. It’s an essential component of the healthcare system. If you’re dealing with neuropathy, you visit a doctor with high hopes, trusting them that they’ll find a path toward healing.


Those hopes can disappear if your symptoms are dismissed, or your story is considered unlikely.


What happens when you feel like something is wrong, even when a medical professional says you’re okay and should go home? Or what if you’re told that you’re getting older, have tons of stress, or everything is all in your head, and you should see a therapist?


What can you do if you feel like your concerns about neuropathy are dismissed or ignored?


1. Ask your doctor why they might be ignoring your symptoms. Follow that up by initiating a discussion about what to do if the issues worsen.

2. If you believe your doctor isn’t taking your concerns seriously, ask for a referral or seek a second opinion.

3. Review how to present your neuropathic symptoms quickly, clearly, and factually.

4. Learn about the different screening techniques used to confirm a potential diagnosis.

5. Continue to speak up. Many patients feel reluctant to keep pushing when they experience symptom dismissal. Be willing to fight for yourself by asking for help, being polite, and staying firm in your resolve.

6. Find a practice you can trust.


At Advanced Nerve & Health DFW, we like to say that “neuropathy heroes are made every day.” We successfully treat neuropathy caused by diabetes, chemotherapy, post-surgical, medication-related, idiopathic causes, and other factors. By using a combination of nutritional protocols and laser technologies, we encourage the body to address the diseased environment naturally to start healing.


Our process is entirely painless. Treating nerve conditions is our only service. If you’re ready to explore a way to heal, reach out today. We’ll listen.
