Anodyne Therapy

Don't let the pain and numbness of peripheral neuropathy rob you of a normal life.

As you may have experienced, neuropathy is often painful and can put limits on your activities. Peripheral neuropathy is nerve damage due to poor blood flow to nerves in the feet, legs and hands. Peripheral neuropathy is one of the most common complications of diabetes, but may also be caused by circulatory problems, medications, chemotherapy, alcohol, AIDS, and unknown causes.

Does your pain...

Keep you from accomplishing all you would like each day?
Keep you from walking as far or as fast as you would like?
Prevent you from sleeping or wake you up at night?

If you have answered "yes" to any of these questions, we may be able to assist you in reaching your goals and improving your life!

Why do we use Anodyne as part of our comprehensive therapy program?

Anodyne emits infrared photo energy to increase circulation and temporarily reduce pain in the area it is applied. It has been designed to maximize the effectiveness of infrared photo energy by using highly efficient light emitting diodes (LEDs) placed in direct skin contact.

Are there any side effects?

No side effects have been reported as long as Anodyne Therapy is properly used and monitored. If you have diabetes, check your blood sugars often during any change in therapy or activity.

Our program usually involves 12 therapy sessions, which may include:

Anodyne Therapy to temporarily reduce pain and increase circulation to tissues and nerves
Stretching and strengthening exercises
Dynamic and static balance exercises
Massage and the use of other therapeutic modalities for pain
Sensory integrative techniques to put it all together
