Those who have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy have been waiting a long time for some good news. After years of being told your nerves are “dead” and there is no hope, that hope is finally here.

Advanced Musculoskeletal Medicine Consultants is now offering a leading-edge new therapy for use with any kind of neuropathy, whether related to diabetes, chemotherapy or some other cause.

This new Class IV infrared laser therapy is a drug-free solution that is proven to be 90% effective.

As a physician it is so rewarding when patients who haven’t felt their knees or toes for 20 years can suddenly feel the floor and have better balance.

Healthy nerves have important features that help transmit electricity at a fast speed through the nerve. However, these critical systems are often damaged in people with neuropathy. This damage doesn’t mean your nerves are “dead.” Instead, they are latent, that is, asleep, and they can be awakened with this new laser therapy which works at the cellular level to help cells do their jobs.

Help for Chronic Pain, Too
These painless treatments also help reduce chronic pain from other causes, including carpal tunnel, tennis elbow, muscle strain, planter fasciitis, arthritis, fibromyalgia, and auto, work or sports injuries.

Typically, patients receive a total of 16 treatments divided up over 2-3 times each week using our Class IV infrared laser (the highest power available for this kind of therapy). Most patients see dramatic improvement by the 8th or 9th treatment, and symptoms continue to improve through the 16th treatment, which is sustainable for years afterward.

Advanced Musculoskeletal Medicine Consultants’ new offices are at 8401 Chagrin Rd., Suite 20A, in Chagrin Falls. To schedule an evaluation to see if you are a candidate for the IR laser, call 440-557-5011. Visit AdvancedMMC.com for more information, including blogs and videos.
