Have you ever seen the term neuropathy and wondered what it meant, or have been told you have it and still wonder what it is? Well here’s the blog for you. Neuropathy is any diseased condition or malfunction of the nervous system that damages nerves in any location of the body by an injury or another disease. Neuropathy can also be classified by the disease that is causing it, such as diabetic neuropathy. The risks of having diabetic neuropathy rise with the age and duration of the diabetic and are most common in people who have had diabetes for decades.  Generally, more severe in those who have had difficulty controlling their diabetes, those who are overweight or have elevated blood lipids and high blood pressure. Studies also show that Diabetics who take certain medications may exhibit neuropathy symptoms. 

Is there a solution?

YES! The Kansas Foot Center offers both oral medications and laser treatments to help their symptoms.


What is this you ask? This is a vitamin that can help with the burning, tingling, and numbness in the feet and can only be prescribed by a physician.  Unlike Gabapentin, which has many side effects, this is comprised of multiple types of vitamins that when together helps improve blood flow that decreases nerve damage, reduces inflammation and helps remove other harmful substances that damage nerves.  I highly recommend this product to anyone suffering from neuropathy. 

Laser Therapy

NO PAIN, NO KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS! Our innovated MLS (Multi-wave Lock System) uses light energy waves that enter the damaged cells and stimulates intra-cellular activity. It helps repair damaged cells and helps with blood flow, which in return decreases nerve damage and reduces inflammation. Recommended treatments are twice a week for six weeks and unfortunately not covered by insurance. 

Neuropathy is a serious problem and should not be taken lightly. Those suffering from this condition are at higher risk of amputations due to nerve damage and not being able to feel if they have an open wound, blister or even a callous and it can then get infected and travel up to the leg.
