Infrared Laser Therapy
Infrared rays are naturally produced by the sun every day, and we feel it when our skin heats up. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to treat neuropathy. For that, a patient will need something a little more specific and focused on each region of the body. Infrared laser therapy utilizes a type of electromagnetic radiation, similar to radio waves and x-rays, created to specifically treat nerve damage. Although infrared light cannot be seen by the naked eye, a person can feel it through the heat it produces on the skin.
With peripheral neuropathy, damaged nerves are unable to properly send signals to and from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This is also what begins to produce pain. This is where infrared laser therapy comes to the rescue. As the laser caresses the skin and the skin begins to comfortably heat up, the body will naturally produce nitric oxide, which is a chemical in the body that helps to relax arteries, regulate blood pressure, and fight “free radicals” from joining forces. Infrared laser therapy helps the body produce nitric oxide to improve blood flow and increase oxygen nutrients to help with pain relief and treat damaged nerves.
At Well Being Neuropathy Relief Center in Roseville, Dr. Van Wagenen combines this treatment with effective Nutritional Counseling for optimal results and to help your body recover quicker.
