DIABETIC PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY THERAPY (Nerve damage associated with diabetes)

TLRMC offers Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy Therapy – the first to demonstrate restoration of sensation in the feet of diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy, along with improved gait and balance. The Anodyne® Neuropathy Care Center ProgramSM is the first to offer hope to patients for what was thought to be a progressive and irreversible disease.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN) is nerve damage associated with diabetes, the symptoms of which include numbness and/or pain in the feet, legs and hands. Complications of this devastating condition are reported to cost the U.S. healthcare system in excess of 37 billion dollars annually and include wounds that don’t heal for months or years, lower extremity amputations, reduced mobility and increased risk of falls.

While drugs are sometimes effective for the pain associated with DPN, no drug or medical device had previously been shown to increase sensation once it has been diminished or lost due to DPN. This program follows the clinically-proven protocol published in the Journal of the Podiatric Medical Association in which clinically significant improvements in sensation could be measured in 100% of the study participants after only twelve 30-minute treatments.

Hours: Monday – Friday, 7 a.m. – 6 p.m. Please call to schedule an appointment.
