Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where nerves are damaged causing weakness, burning pain, numbness, tingling, freezing extremities and debilitating balance problems. The damage to the nerves has over 100 different causes. Poor blood flow to the nerves, toxic levels of sugar in the blood (diabetes), chronic infections, pesticide exposure, and genetic variants are just a few of the causes of this debilitating condition. The cause is different for every patient and it must be discovered to help the nerves heal!
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Generally, symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in an affected area include:
- Burning/ Searing Pain
- Freezing cold extremities
- Unusual and/or loss of sensations
- Muscle weakness
- Deep Stabbing Pain
- Balance Problems
Another common cause of nerve damage is auto-immunity. Auto-immune diseases are diseases where the immune system mistakenly starts to attack the body. That’s right! Many times the immune system is actually killing the nerves of peripheral neuropathy sufferers. This is why thorough testing is vitally important to helping peripheral neuropathy.
Will it work for you?
Join us for a FREE Neuropathy Reversal Masterclass. We will discuss symptoms, common medical history, treatment options, and whether you would benefit from a neurological sensory exam, which includes a nerve scan, a sensory loss test, and a pain-away treatment. Register today for our next Neuropathy Reversal Masterclass.
At Tomasetti Family Chiropractic, our treatment has four main goals:
Optimize the environment within the body for nerve healing.
Increase blood flow to the nerves.
Stimulate the nerves that are damaged (small fiber, large diameter, or motor nerves) to reduce pain and improve balance.
Decrease brain-based pain.
Our exclusive treatment system increases blood flow to the nerves in the feet and/or hands, which helps to rejuvenate nerves naturally and has returned many of our patient’s feet and/or hands to normal. No surgery. No addictive medications.
Our proprietary and comprehensive treatment program utilizes up to eight different state-of-the-art technologies and is unlike any treatment program you may have already experienced. This is why we are getting amazing results even when other approaches have failed.
Can peripheral nerves heal?
Yes! It is well established in the scientific literature that peripheral nerves can and do heal. The key issue is that not only do we need to get the nerves healing, but we have to stop whatever is causing the nerve damage in the first place. Identifying the underlying cause and providing proper nerve support optimizes the ability of the nerves to heal.
In order to effectively heal nerve damage, four factors must be determined:
- What is the underlying cause of the nerve damage?
- How severe is the nerve damage?
- What types of nerve fibers are damaged?
- How much treatment will the nerves require to heal?

What do nerves need to heal?
Nerve cells need two things to heal: Fuel and Activation. This makes the combination of highly effective nutrition (fuel) and low-level light therapy and Nerve Re-education (activation) the perfect 1-2 punch for nerve regeneration!
There are four vital components to our neuropathy protocol. Each vital component is equally important for optimal results.
Vital Component #1
Electromagnetic Infrared Therapy
One of the treatment technologies we use to increase blood flow and repair the nerve is our new Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT). The light therapy signals Vasoendothelial Growth (VEGF), which signals the production of angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the creation of new blood vessels, which is needed to repair nerve damage. These blood vessels grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. This technology has 21 peer-reviewed studies with a 97% success rate with peripheral neuropathy.
Vital Component #2
We use state-of-the-art digital electro therapeutic stimulation to assist in the growth of the nerves. This is called Nerve Re-Education and is by the Cancer Treatment Centers of America in order to help chemotherapy patients rebuild nerves. Nerve Re-Education can even be done at home, so therapy can be done daily! The results can be immediate in both pain relief and restoration of normal sensation.
Vital Component #3
Advanced Nutrition Therapy
Proper nutrition is critical for optimal tissue and nerve repair. Our Advanced Nutritional Therapies have been designed to accelerate the healing process by affecting the complex processes of inflammation, blood flow, and bioavailable nitric oxide. The nerves have been starving, so we need to feed them.
Vital Component #4
In-Clinic Visits & Online Education
In synergy with your home infrared electromagnetic and electrostimulation therapy, you will be prescribed office visits for our in-clinic protocols.
