Peripheral neuropathy refers to the conditions that result from the damage or dysfunction of one or more peripheral nerves. Peripheral nerves are nerves attached to the spinal cord that carry messages to and from the spinal cord and brain to and from the rest of the body. If these nerves are damaged or dysfunctional, communication is interrupted between the brain and other parts of the body, and this can impair muscle movement, prevent normal sensation in the arms and legs, and cause severe pain or numbness. The most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are feelings of numbness, tingling, muscle weakness, or even burning/stabbing pain in the affected area. When untreated, more severe cases of peripheral neuropathy can result in lack of coordination, numbness spreading up into your arms and legs, loss of motor function, and even paralysis.
Though there is no definitive cure for Peripheral Neuropathy, Dr. Patterson's approach to neuropathy treatments has had an 87% success rate. Dr. Patterson's treatment method that has shown great success is the combination of Neurogenx Electronic Nerve Stimulation and iMRS Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy.
