Does Burning Pain Describe Your Feet?
There are several conditions that might cause you to experience burning pain, from Central Pain Syndrome to St. Anthony’s Fire. But one of the most common conditions, one that affects millions of people, is Peripheral Neuropathy.
Similar to telephone wires, the Peripheral Nervous System carries messages to and from the brain and spinal cord. This system of nerves tells us when we’re hot or cold, how we are holding a fork, or if we are experiencing pain.
When the Peripheral nerves become damaged and can no longer function correctly, the skin’s pain receptors become extremely sensitive, causing people to experience discomfort and pain from ordinary things that would not normally cause pain.
How do the nerves become damaged?
There are several conditions that can result in Peripheral Neuropathy:
- One of the leading causes is diabetes
- Radiation Exposure
- and many other things
It can be difficult to diagnose and according to most medical professionals, impossible to treat.
For most people who suffer with neuropathy, their life can change drastically, in fact many feel hopeless, and like giving up because of the pain and discomfort they feel continuously.
At the Bellevue Pain Institute, we have been successfully treating Peripheral Neuropathy with Low Level Laser Therapy, a non-invasive, drug free and painless treatment. Our clients often feel relief right away.
