According to the National Institutes of Health, nearly 20 million Americans suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy. Many live with sensory abnormalities that make it difficult to get through the course of a typical day. At Innovative Medical Centers, people suffering from peripheral neuropathy are treated using interventions aimed at addressing the causes of the condition.

The human nervous system is a complex communications network that serves to transport sensory data from all areas of the body to the central nervous system and then the brain, which interprets the data. The brain also sends data back through the nervous system to prompt tasks like muscle movement.
Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the components of your peripheral nervous system are damaged in some way. Neuropathy can take many forms, including pain, abnormal sensations, or impaired organ function.
Symptoms vary depending on which type of nerves sustains damage.
Motor nerve neuropathy can lead you to experience muscle weakness, diminished reflexes, muscle twitching, and muscle atrophy.
When your sensory nerves are damaged, you may experience loss of sensation in your hands and feet, slowed reflexes, and difficulty with coordination. You might not feel pain from a wound or infection. Some people experience increased pain with no apparent cause, or pain stemming from normal stimuli like wearing clothing.
When the nerves that control organ function sustain damage, symptoms include loss of bladder control, sudden changes in blood pressure, inability to sweat, or lack of muscle control. Gastrointestinal issues can also occur, including constipation, diarrhea, or difficulty swallowing.
A key component to treating peripheral neuropathy lies in addressing the causal factors. Your doctor begins by assessing your current health and lifestyle and taking a thorough health history.
If there are conditions noted that could play a causal role in your neuropathy, treatment focuses on improving those conditions. An example of a causal factor is compression that places undue pressure on your nerves. Relieving that compression allows your nerve cells to regenerate, which often reverses neuropathy in that area.
If infection, vitamin deficiency, hormonal fluctuations, or other concerns are creating your nerve damage, those conditions are assessed and treated individually. Having the skills and patience to explore a wide range of potential causes is an essential part of effective neuropathy treatment.
Lifestyle changes can also improve neuropathy. The team at Innovative Medical Centers can help you find a healthy and balanced diet, increase your exercise level, and manage other medical conditions that can lead to neuropathy.
Sanexas electrotherapy is a unique treatment method that’s been particularly effective for many of our patients because it helps your body heal damaged nerve pathways. By addressing these underlying causes of your symptoms, you can get long-term relief from pain and other debilitating peripheral neuropathy symptoms without invasive treatments or addictive medications.
The Sanexas system goes beyond traditional transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy in that it uses electronic signal energy waves produced by an ultra-high digital frequency generator. These therapeutic energy waves stimulate your body on a cellular level without being invasive or causing discomfort. With Sanexas treatments, over time, many people report less reliance on pain medications, increased mobility, and an overall improvement in their quality of life.
The Sanexas electric cell signaling system delivers energy to the affected area of your body at varying wavelengths, including both low-frequency and middle-frequency signals. It also uses amplitude modulated (AM) and frequency modulated (FM) signaling. During a treatment session, the Sanexas system automatically changes to simultaneously deliver AM and FM electric cell signal energy.
The benefit of this system is that it has the ability to affect your nerve cell membranes and the surrounding tissue to produce a harmonic resonant vibration.
The “harmonic frequencies” your cells absorb promote repair and healing to areas affected by the nerve damage of peripheral neuropathy.
After a series of Sanexas electrotherapy treatments, your body responds by:
The team at Innovative Medical Centers customizes your peripheral neuropathy treatment plan by programming the Sanexas device to your specific needs. When combined with other therapies, it can change the quality of your life for the better.
As with every condition the team at Innovative Medical Centers treats, a comprehensive, holistic philosophy is the norm. To address your particular peripheral neuropathy symptoms, your team creates an individualized combination of therapies meant to relieve pain and increase mobility. When combined with a holistic treatment plan Sanexas can improve your mobility to the point where you may no longer need a cane or walker to assist you in getting around.
Many patients say they sleep better after the very first Sanexas treatment and experience reduced inflammation and a noticeable difference in pain levels over time with this natural approach to pain therapy. When your pain subsides, it makes it easier to move and therefore begin exercising. As you continue to move and become more mobile without debilitating pain, you can enjoy your favorite activities again and embrace a better overall quality of life.
If you’re ready to focus on all the things that are important to you each day, rather than on your pain, lack of sleep, or lack of mobility that comes with having peripheral neuropathy, it’s time to call Innovative Medical Centers for a holistic, effective treatment plan that includes Sanexas electrotherapy.
