Chronic Pain and/or Numbness Therapies
If you are suffering from chronic pain or numbness, nerves in your extremities (arms and legs) are dying off. The KEY to eliminating your pain and/or numbness is to stimulate nerves that are called large diameter afferents (LDAs)! LDAs prevent or inhibit pain, swelling, and/or numbness by firing in to an area in the spinal cord known as Laminae II. We also want to increase the firing of your brain cerebellum (the cerebellum controls your balance, coordinated movement and all of your spinal muscles). When we increase the firing of your brain and cerebellum, we decrease pain and/or numbness!
In our office we offer various therapies to relieve your pain, numbness, and/or swelling. We may be doing one or all depending on the specific level of care that you require.
