Cutting-edge, breakthrough treatment to reduce or eliminate the pain of peripheral neuropathy.

Why We Built Our Neuropathy Treatment Program

It is often said that a good healthcare provider never celebrates the 99 patients that they help. Instead, they focus on the one they were unable to help. This philosophy is what drove us to develop this cutting-edge Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Program.

We have had the pleasure of helping many patients suffering with many different conditions, including back pain, neck pain, headaches, knee pain, hip pain, shoulder pain, and a host of virtually every other type of musculoskeletal condition you can think of. As a practice with a vibrant wellness population, we have built long term relationships with our patients – some have been with our practice since we opened our doors in Roanoke in 2006.

As our patients have aged, we noticed that many developed Peripheral Neuropathy. We saw firsthand the progression of their Peripheral Neuropathy condition – many were forced to stop the activities they had always participated in. These activities varied from working in their yards, shopping, golfing, walking, or even spending time with their families. We watched their lives get smaller and it was very devastating to see.
Like our patients’ physicians, we were taught in our professional training that there were no solutions available to successfully treat neuropathy – only manage their symptoms. Medical standards of care include anti-seizure medications, but we saw the devastating effects of those medications in our own patients. While the quantity of medications increased, their symptoms also continued to worsen – nothing was stopping the progression of neuropathy for our patients. We were beyond frustrated to see the decline and did what we could do to help our patients when they suffered injuries from falls because of their loss of balance from neuropathy.

Several years ago, Dr. Walker made it her mission to understand the progression of neuropathy and figure out a system that could help address the underlying causes of neuropathy. In researching the progression, she knew there had to be a way to help patients not only address their symptoms, but to help slow down or even stop the progression of neuropathy. After traveling around the country to research the various pieces of equipment used in some of the most successful practices in the country, Dr. Walker molded the program to what it is today.
For safe, non-invasive treatment to reduce or eliminate your symptoms of Neuropathy, come in for an evaluation today.

Why Patients Choose Balance Wellspace

The providers at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine have a 90%+ success rate with patients receiving treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy. We have the knowledge to address the Peripheral Neuropathy disease process and have spent years studying the causes, effects, and outcomes of all treatments. We are constantly tweaking our program to ensure the best outcomes possible as technology and research evolves. Although each patient entering our program suffers with Peripheral Neuropathy, the treatments can vary from person to person based on the severity of the disease, health status of the patient, and the goals for the patient.

Our approach is a “whole body view,” addressing not just the symptoms but the cause of the nerve damage as well. By working to improve all the factors contributing to your neuropathy, we can dramatically improve symptoms and decrease the progression of this debilitating disease.

Our Approach to Address Neuropathy

Given the variability between patients suffering with neuropathy, having several tools available to help with the symptoms and repair process is essential for an optimal outcome.

1) Increase the blood flow to your limbs and heal the nerves.
2) Electrical stimulation to rehabilitate the nerves.
3) Improve the nutrition and lifestyle of the patient with an emphasis on reducing inflammation. 

In more advanced cases, it is sometimes necessary to incorporate regenerative medicine to aid in reducing inflammation and facilitate the healing process. These products can be used to initiate cellular growth in areas on the foot, legs, and hands when the body is unable to repair these issues on its own.

This treatment approach has allowed patients to either greatly reduce or even stop taking prescription neuropathy pain medications that often result in numerous ill side effects. Some patients report reduced neuropathy pain after just one treatment.

Low-Level Light Therapy

The first tool used is called Low-Level Light Therapy. This treatment was initially researched, tested, and developed by NASA, and was later approved by the FDA. When a group of visionaries in the medical community discovered the effects of Low-Level Light Therapy, they began using it with patients and getting incredible results, without the use of drugs and surgery. Low-Level Light Therapy consists of LED light pads that when absorbed 2-3 cm into tissues causes vasodilation (increased blood circulation in the blood vessels). The effect is decreased inflammation, stimulated nerve growth, and increased nerve production.

Sanexas Horizontal Therapy

The neoGEN® system is a state-of-the art, technically-innovative medical device for producing electric cell signaling energy waves (EcST and ESI).

The system is used to successfully treat circulatory issues, all types of acute and chronic pain, long-term (intractable) pain and drug-resistant pain. The neoGEN® also offers specific parameter signaling for efficient neuromuscular reeducation, muscle strengthening, and relaxation of muscle spasm activity.

The RST-Sanexas neoGEN® medical device is the original and only electric cell signaling device that was used in clinical research, published in multiple medical journals proving the ability to effect nerves and reduce painful symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy.
More than 30 published medical reports are available covering painful neuropathic conditions, and muscular neuromuscular reeducation. RST-Sanexas neoGEN® system is safe, effective, and user-friendly.

Sanexas machines are the “gold standard” therapy for treating neuropathy pain. These machines function by producing an extremely high frequency of electrical impulses that are converted by biochemical reactions in the body’s tissues resulting in a reduction of overall discomfort and nerves are stimulated to regrow.

Extracorporeal Pulsed Activation Therapy(EPAT) (Shockwave Therapy)

Shockwave Therapy is a non-invasive modern and highly effective treatment method: high-energy sound waves are introduced into the painful areas of the body. EPAT technology accelerates the healing process in the body by stimulating metabolism and enhancing blood circulation to regenerate damaged tissue. Strong energy pulses are applied to the affected area. These pulses occur for short periods of time, creating micro-cavitation bubbles that expand and burst. The force created by these bubbles penetrates tissue and stimulates cells in the body that are responsible for bone and connective tissue healing.

Shockwave therapy accelerates the healing in patients with nerve conditions or tissue damage by addressing any adhesions/scar tissue present in the area, increasing blood flow to the extremities, stimulating tissue cell and nerve growth, and decreasing inflammation.

Human Cellular Tissue Product (HCTP) Injections

When patients present with a very severe case of peripheral neuropathy, portions of Balance Wellspace’s Regenerative Medicine program can be utilized to help obtain optimal results. Specifically, human cellular tissue allografts containing mesenchymal stromal cells can be used to initiate cellular growth in areas on the foot, legs, and hands when the body is unable to repair these tissues on its own.

Physical Therapy

Many patients experiencing symptoms of Neuropathy have significant issues with balance and coordination. Given the risk of falling is increased when these symptoms are present, addressing balance and lower extremity strength are especially important in this population.

Vibration is one of the tools used in Physical Therapy to help increase circulation, but also assist in reconnecting important neurological pathways to stabilize the patient.
