Living with diabetes can be discouraging, and even overwhelming at times. Suffering from a complication, such as diabetic neuropathy, due to poor control is even more challenging. Diabetic neuropathy often occurs when a diabetic’s nerves are exposed to long-term high blood sugars, decreased blood supply and inflammation, which injure the nerve fiber.
Symptoms of diabetic neuropathy can include numbness, a tingling or burning sensation, sharp pains, cramps, increased sensitivity to touch, loss of reflexes and muscle weakness. Those suffering from diabetic neuropathy are most likely to feel symptoms in the feet, especially in the toes and on the soles. The condition may also affect the hands, arms, and legs. Living with diabetic neuropathy can be painful, especially at night, and the doctors at Lewis Family Chiropractic and Wellness Center located in Westminster, Maryland are excited to offer a new approach to your pain.
While traditional doctors treat diabetic neuropathy with medication, it cannot be cured and the effectiveness varies. Instead of strong medications to ease the discomfort and pain resulting from diabetic neuropathy, Lewis Family Chiropractic is excited to announce that K-Laser is a new and innovative approach to neuropathy symptoms. It is theorized that neuron cell permeability is decreased in the diabetic neuropathy condition. K-Laser therapy has a healing effect on cells and we are seeing tremendous results in our office. The short and painless laser session has the potential to improve your quality of life immensely – and surprisingly quickly.
