Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out this post! Vertical Chiropractic loves supporting the FWMOM group and we are so thankful for the opportunity to be a sponsor for 2022!
Each time we get the opportunity to write a blog, we always want to share tips on health and encourage everyone who reads this on to live their healthiest life, naturally. In previous posts, we’ve discussed the importance of chiropractic care for pregnant moms and children. In the time our practice has been opened (just over 4 years!) we’ve had the blessing to serve hundreds of pregnant moms and help keep their spine and body healthy in preparation for labor and delivery; as well as see many infants and children break free from many common health issues such as colic, infantile reflux, ear infections, torticollis, and breathing issues... just to name a few. This time around, however, we are excited to share about a new breakthrough treatment protocol that our office is offering to help with - NEUROPATHY.
You may be wondering, "what is neuropathy???" We run into many people who have heard of the term but are unsure of what it means. Neuropathy is the damage or dysfunction of one or more nerves that typically results in numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, and pain in the affected area. The most common areas of the body where neuropathy is found are in the feet and hands. There are many causes of neuropathy, however, the most common causes are from the effects of diabetes, autoimmune diseases, infections, and induced from chemotherapy. What we have found with patients who experience neuropathy is a very low quality of life, with very few options to treat the disease. Patients with this condition are oftentimes recommended pain relievers such as Tylenol or ibuprofen and in many cases much stronger nerve pain medications such as gabapentin and Lyrica. We have seen these medications provide relief temporarily, but they do not address the underlying cause of the condition. In our office, we strive to address the underlying problem, rather than simply treat the symptom.
With much studying and extensive training in treating neuropathy, we are proud to offer a 3-prong approach in treating and reversing the effects of neuropathy. The protocol consists of at-home equipment (Low-Level Light Therapy and Rebuilder Therapy), Premium Nutritional Protocol, and In-Office visits (Chiropractic Adjustments). The equipment recommended specializes in increasing blood flow to the affected area, while also encouraging nerve re-education. The nutritional protocol is designed to help decrease inflammation, control blood sugar, balance alkalinity in the body, and provide a game plan to encourage healthier eating habits. The in-office visits are for correcting spinal misalignments and encouraging consistent spinal integrity, to allow for proper nerve function throughout the body.
We have seen this specific protocol work wonders for people in many ways in dealing with neuropathy. All too often we see people run into a wall with limited options to treat this condition and feel stuck, with no hope for better days. We are blessed with the opportunity to help people regain their quality of life and do so in a natural way. If you or someone you know is dealing with this condition, please feel free to reach out to our office at 817-330-9665 or email me personally at Drtrevor@verticalfw.com as we are happy to answer any questions regarding neuropathy.
Until next time, thank you for taking the time to read and we are wishing you a happy and healthy 2022!
