Please Stop the Pain – My Hands Hurt

When patients come to you asking you to “please stop the pain,” that can be a powerful moment. As healthcare practitioners our goal is to improve the health of our patients to the best level possible. When patients are anguishing with pain that’s difficult to control it’s hard for us as well.

Our team knew there had to be some way to help patients suffering with hand pain due to peripheral neuropathy. We tried existing products. But, when we found them coming up short of what was needed to stop the pain for our patients, we decided to create something better.

That’s when our team began working on conductive garments. We knew there were certain criteria that was necessary for us to be successful. Here are a few of our mandatory inclusions:

  • Comfort
  • Smooth on the skin
  • Durable
  • Electrically conductive
  • Does well to stop the pain

We were determined to stop the pain so many neuropathy sufferers are crippled by.

Our Success in Stopping the Pain of Hand Neuropathy

It took us awhile, but we finally got there. We did years of building, testing and recreating, but we finally arrived at a product that we were pleased with. In fact, we knew we had reached success. Our patients told us so.

We didn’t just test ourselves. We took it to our experts. Our patients!

Who else would know if their hand pain was relieved better than them. Absolutely no one!

That’s when we knew we were onto something.

Our NDGen and conductive gloves were considered a smash hit with our patients!

Patients are Happy! NDGen Helped Stop the Pain!

We’re not telling you this is a miracle. But what we are telling you is that this is based on solid scientific principles. You can check out our post next week to learn more in depth about how the NDGen and conductive gloves work.

In the meantime, please join us over on Facebook where we share a variety of information of interest.

Balance and Neuropathy Treatment

One of the more common but sometimes under diagnosed components of some forms of peripheral neuropathy is loss of balance. Patients will often say “I don’t have neuropathy; I only walk like I’ve had a few drinks”. This is why it is so crucial to address balance and neuropathy treatment.

In the clinic, we call this “gait” changes. Of course, there are many neurologic disorders that can cause you to walk abnormally or to lose your balance.

But this loss of balance occurs frequently in peripheral neuropathy and sometimes its the very first things patients notice.  This is primarily due to changes in sensation in your feet to touch, as well as position sense, or what doctors call proprioception.

One of the most important things to recognize is that left untreated, this problem often gets worse. It requires not only treatment for the neuropathy component but also rehabilitation to help retrain balance and coordination, wherever this is possible.

There are some very simple steps they can be taken almost immediately to prevent catastrophic falls and help balance and neuropathy treatment.

The first thing is to make sure that proper footwear is worn at all times. Secondly, remove common hazards around the household such as objects upon stairs, rugs without non-slip backing or pads, spilled liquids on the floor etc.

Be especially careful in kitchens and bathrooms.  Once neuropathy treatment has begun, we’ll instruct you in a series of exercises to help retrain your nervous system.

This is only possible when adequate balance and neuropathy treatment has been able to improve sensation to the soles of your feet, and position sense to your toes and ankles and knees.

This is why getting care early can go along way towards helping possible neuropathy recovery, but also set the stage for a return to a more active lifestyle.

Remember, the sooner you act, the sooner you improve.

Please, do not wait for your situation to really deteriorate before seeking active balance and neuropathy treatment intervention.

Good treatment for many of the more common forms of neuropathy is now available!

All you have to do is ask!!!

Understanding Shotgun Therapy

Patients who become the most proactive in their personalized neuropathy treatment programs always do the best.

Shotgun therapy is a term applied in medicine when multiple therapies that are sometimes not exactly complimentary are presented to patients. Don’t get me wrong; sometimes in health crises this can be lifesaving!

But too often, it is we as patients who are guilty of this.

A big example of shotgun therapy is the widespread usage of over the counter cold and pain medications. This has long been a concern of pharmacists and healthcare professionals alike.

Due to a wide degree of variability in patient responses, there are many OTC drug and dietary supplement combinations out there that are probably not beneficial.

Too often herbal based dietary supplements, yes even sometimes those prescribed for neuropathy patients, fall into this category. Far too many of these “neuropathy” treatment formulas have multiple ingredients that can interact in unknown ways.

And unbeknownst to you as a patient, this shotgun therapy approach may actually be more harmful and not helpful.

As I’m sure you are aware, peripheral neuropathy can be a very frustrating condition to treat.

But one of the most frustrating things for both doctors and patients alike is where no clear neuropathy treatment plan is identified.

Every therapy and every medication you take must be part of an overall neuropathy treatment strategy. Even if that strategy is a trial to see what works best for you!

This is why those patients who become the most proactive in their personalized neuropathy treatment programs always do the best.

So as frustrating as it may be at times, I encourage you to learn as much about your underlying condition and neuropathy treatment options as possible, but do your best to avoid shotgun therapy.

Even if it’s not 100% clear on what the underlying cause of your peripheral neuropathy is, the good news is proven strategies now exist for effectively treating many forms of peripheral neuropathy.
