Neuropathy Q&A

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy refers to the injury or disease affecting the nerves in your feet, legs, hands, and arms. While diabetes is the leading cause, it can also result from trauma, nerve compression, and various underlying health conditions.

This type of nerve disease typically develops gradually, with symptoms appearing only after nerve damage has occurred. Common symptoms include:

  • Numbness and tingling in the feet and hands, which may spread to the legs and arms
  • Sharp, throbbing, or burning pain
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Cold hands and feet
  • Difficulty walking or loss of balance

Introducing Neurogenx: Advanced Neuropathy Treatment

At Premier Podiatry, we utilize the Neurogenx 4000Pro®, a cutting-edge FDA-cleared and patented device that stands as the only one of its kind. This advanced treatment uses electronic waves to penetrate deep into tissues and directly target nerves.

Neurogenx provides relief from pain and other neuropathy symptoms while promoting nerve healing through electronic signal treatment (EST). This innovative EST technology combines high-frequency waves with a complex electrical pattern that mimics the natural electronic patterns of your nerves.

With Neurogenx, 87% of patients achieve significant symptom relief and improved functioning. Clinical studies also show that Neurogenx can help reverse nerve damage and stimulate the growth of new nerve fibers.

Conditions Treated with Neurogenx

Neurogenx effectively alleviates pain, tingling, burning, and numbness caused by neuropathy and chronic nerve conditions. While it is versatile and used for various conditions, it is commonly employed to treat foot and ankle conditions such as:

  • Diabetic neuropathy
  • Morton’s neuromas
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Inflammatory conditions
  • Tarsal tunnel syndrome
  • Complex regional pain syndrome

How Does Neurogenx Work?

Neurogenx produces exceptional results through four key healing mechanisms:

Reduces inflammation: The electronic signals emitted by Neurogenx help reduce swelling and pain, providing similar effects to steroids without the associated side effects.

Triggers cellular changes: By matching the nerve’s normal electric signals, Neurogenx promotes changes at the cellular level. It boosts cell metabolism, repairs cell membranes, and normalizes cellular pH, facilitating healing and improved functioning.

Stimulates the release of pain-relieving chemicals: Neurogenx treatment triggers the release of potent pain-suppressing biochemicals, such as endorphins, which are your body’s natural painkillers.

Depolarizes nerve cells: Neurogenx sustains depolarization of nerve cells, effectively blocking pain signals while allowing nerves to continue functioning. Unlike medications that block nerves and stop all functioning, Neurogenx suppresses pain while promoting healing and the removal of waste products and free radicals from the nerves. This creates a healthy environment for nerve repair and restoration of functioning.

Combined Neurogenx Treatment

In some cases, Dr. O’Connor may perform an integrated nerve block (INB) by combining EST with a local anesthetic for more immediate pain relief. Administering EST after a low-dose anesthetic injection significantly reduces inflammation and enhances cellular repair.

What to Expect during Neurogenx Treatment

During your treatment session, Dr. O’Connor will place surface electrodes on your skin. These electrodes may target a specific area or cover a wider region of your body to ensure the electronic signals reach the desired nerves. While you may experience temporary discomfort, the procedure itself should not be painful.

Each session lasts approximately 40 minutes, and most patients undergo a course of 24 or more treatments, typically receiving two or three treatments per week. The number of sessions required depends on the severity of your nerve damage and your progress following each treatment.
