anodyne therapy systems as a neuropathy treatment

Anodyne Therapy System

What is the Anodyne Therapy System used for?

The Anodyne Therapy System is used for Peripheral neuropathy, which is damage to your peripheral nerves. Peripheral neuropathy often causes weakness, numbness and pain, usually in your hands and feet. It can also affect other areas of your body.  Loss of protective sensations in your legs prevents you from sensing when you have stepped on a sharp object like a nail and this can lead to infections and is a common cause of lower extremity amputations.

One of the most common causes is diabetes.

People with peripheral neuropathy generally describe the pain as stabbing, burning or tingling. In many cases, symptoms improve, especially if caused by a treatable condition. Medications can reduce the pain of peripheral neuropathy. Additionally a novel way using Monochromatic Infra Red Emission or MIRE has been shown to help improve the microcirculation in the distal nerves and helps significantly with the symptoms of pain burning and tingling. This uses a system call the Anodyne System which along with light exercises and balance training helps tremendously.

How is the Anodyne Therapy System use to treat neuropathy?

Our therapists will carefully evaluate your overall sensations, pain, strength and loss of function and can device a plan that will include Light Exercises along with Anodyne Therapy and or E Stim as well as balance exercises.  Exercises increase tissue demand by stimulating the cells to release chemicals that allow vasodilation.  The Anodyne System uses Infra Red light to make the cells secrete the same chemicals and causes vasodilation distally at the peripheral microcirculation level.   Exercises also helps control your blood sugar levels if the Neuropathy is due to diabetes, helps increase your muscle strength and increases your stability, thereby reducing the fear of falling and the actual number of falls.  Additionally regular monitoring with monofilaments give you object proof of your improvement in protective sensations.
