Neuropathy is a chronic condition in which people might experience pain, numbness, weakness, and/or tingling virtually anywhere in their body due to nerve damage. The most common type of neuropathy is peripheral neuropathy, which usually affects the arms, legs, hands, and/or feet.
There are many types of treatments for neuropathy pain, but they often involve medications with lots of side effects or surgery which comes with a potentially difficult recovery. Fortunately, there is a treatment option that has been proven in study after study to be effective at combatting peripheral neuropathy pain: electrotherapy.
Let’s discuss how electrotherapy works, how it can be effective in treating peripheral neuropathy pain, and where you can go to receive safe and effective electrotherapy treatment.
How Does Electrotherapy Work?
An electrotherapy is a form of treatment that uses a gentle electrical current to revive and stimulate injured tissues. This can help to promote the healing of an injured nerve, thereby reducing pain and improving nerve function.
Benefits of Electrotherapy
Electrotherapy can help to successfully quell neuropathy symptoms in the following ways:
- Reducing peripheral neuropathy pain – The electrical current from electrotherapy can help to block the transmission of pain signals to the brain, which can provide relief from neuropathy pain.
- Improving nerve function – Electrotherapy may help to improve the function of damaged nerves, which can lead to improved mobility and reduced discomfort.
- Promoting healthy blood flow and overall healing – The electrical current from electrotherapy can promote blood flow in and around the injured area, and it thereby induces healing – which can speed up recovery times and reduce discomfort.
How Electrotherapy Can Treat Peripheral Neuropathy Pain
Electrotherapy specifically targets damaged cells, increases blood flow to an injured area, and stimulates regeneration and healing. An added benefit is that the electric current blocks the transmission of pain signals to the brain, providing long-lasting relief from peripheral neuropathy pain.
