When You Suffer From Neuropathic Pain

Mar 15

When you suffer from neuropathic pain, your nerves have become damaged and don’t communicate with your brain or the rest of your body as they should. This condition causes a variety of symptoms, including tingling, burning and stabbing sensations in your arms or legs. This can make daily activities like walking or grabbing things difficult. The good news is that there are treatment options available to help you find relief from your neuropathy symptoms. One of these options is infrared light therapy, which works by stimulating your cells to release vital nutrients and improve blood flow.

Comparing Infrared Laser Therapy is an effective and non-invasive way to improve blood circulation, which can reduce neuropathic pain. It can also help your body heal and regenerate cells, which may help relieve your neuropathy symptoms. The Anodyne® Therapy System uses near-infrared wavelengths to locally release nitric oxide, a powerful vasodilator from red blood cells, improving your overall blood flow and cell health.

Nitric oxide is a short-lived gas that helps to maintain the integrity of your arteries and stimulates the growth of fibroblasts, a major part of connective tissues in the body. When used in conjunction with other treatments, such as physical therapy and medical management of the underlying cause of your neuropathy, nitric oxide can boost your ability to cope with neuropathic pain.

Your peripheral nerves are a network of pathways that carry information from the spinal cord and brain to your limbs and body organs. When these nerves are damaged, the axons that connect healthy nerve cells to each other and the myelin sheath that protects them can break down. The body’s natural ability to repair these broken nerve fibers is hindered by the loss of nitric oxide in the circulation system.

Nerve regeneration is an essential process for maintaining healthy nerves, but the axons can take up to a month to grow after being injured. When they are exposed to red or near-infrared light, however, the nerves can heal more quickly. This is because the axons are stimulated to produce more ATP, which gives them more energy and helps reduce inflammation.

Red light therapy has also been shown to reduce neuropathic pain by promoting axon regeneration and increasing the function of peripheral nerves. In a 2014 study, researchers found that mice with sciatic nerve damage experienced reduced pain when exposed to near-infrared wavelengths. The same results have been observed in humans, with some patients reporting immediate pain relief after undergoing infrared therapy.

Regardless of what causes your neuropathy, infrared therapy is a safe and effective option for improving your quality of life. The combination of nitric oxide and a healthy diet and lifestyle can help you to reduce your neuropathy symptoms, including neuropathic pain. Using an infrared treatment like Anodyne can help to strengthen your balance and gait and prevent further injury by restoring the normal functioning of your peripheral nerves. This will improve your sensation in the feet and hands, allowing you to better manage your day-to-day activities and feel more comfortable.
