What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a condition when nerves get damaged and cause symptoms like pain, weakness, numbness, and a tingling feeling in different parts of the body. It's a common issue that affects a lot of people worldwide and comes in many types, with peripheral neuropathy being one of the most common.

Peripheral neuropathy happens when the nerves outside your brain and spinal cord, called peripheral nerves, are damaged. It can cause different feelings, from slight tingling to strong pain and muscle weakness. This condition can severely impact an individual's daily life, leading to challenges in movement, coordination, and even affecting balance. It may also make it tough to sleep because the pain feels worse at night, like electric shocks or burning.

Early diagnosis and intervention can significantly alter the disease's trajectory, offering avenues to manage symptoms effectively and maintain functionality.

At New Promise Neuropathy we utilize Combined Electrochemical Therapy (CET) which is a clinically proven treatment for peripheral neuropathy.
