Symptomatic Pain of Neuropathy 

 

Tingling, burning, stabbing and stinging pain or numbness are common discomforts experienced by patients suffering from neuropathy. Peripheral Neuropathy is characterized by abnormal sensation and pain in the feet and/or hands. The pain frequently interrupts sleep in the early morning hours. Neuropathy pain often interferes with walking and many daily activities affecting the quality of life.

 

Sensation problems associated with peripheral neuropathy often develop slowly and frequently worsen over time. It is wise to seek medical advice and diagnosis. 

The symptomatic pain of neuropathy is not typical foot pain. It is often sharp and debilitating impairing walking, driving, and daily activities. Stinging, burning, stabbing, electrical, shooting, freezing and electrical pain are some of the ways neuropathy pain is described. Numbness and the feeling of wearing an invisible sock are also commonly experienced. Cramping, spasms and restless legs are not uncommon. These symptoms usually have poor circulation in common.

Why Light Therapy Can Help Foot & Leg Pain

 

Light therapy is a cornerstone of many neuropathy programs in clinical settings because of the ability to increase blood flow. 

 

Infrared and red light triggers the release of nitric oxide from blood vessels and red blood cells in the area directly under the light therapy pads. Improving blood flow and delivery of oxygen to the nerves with our light therapy Boot 122 pads may help nerves to begin to carry sensations again when the cause of neuropathy is related to poor circulation. Nitric oxide causes vasodilation (widening of the blood vessels) that lasts several hours after the therapy. Improvements in pain symptoms typically occur gradually over weeks of regular therapy. A less frequent maintenance schedule is usually advised following a series of therapy sessions to maintain the improved sensation by continuing to support circulation.

LED Therapy Increases Circulation

Both infrared and red light trigger the release of nitric oxide from blood vessels and red blood cells. Nitric oxide causes local vasodilation that lasts several hours after the therapy session has ended. Vasodilation improves blood flow and promotes positive change in patients whose neuropathy is caused by poor blood flow. Improving blood flow lessens pain and helps nerves to begin to carry sensations again.

 

Patients whose pain is due to vascular damage (poor blood flow) may experience relief from the symptomatic pain of neuropathy using LED light therapy. Foot and leg pain due to diabetes often respond well to this therapy. Statin (Cholesterol Drugs) and Chemotherapy caused pain may also respond well to this therapy. Some patients who have idiopathic neuropathy (unknown cause) may not respond to light therapy because the cause of their pain may not be due to poor circulation, but there is no harm in trying the therapy to see if it will produce any benefit.

 

Light therapy, by a licensed healthcare provider, is typically given for a minimum of three times a week for a number of weeks. If treatments can be given 4-5 times a week improvements occur more quickly. Home foot & leg light therapy allows for more frequent and convenient scheduling. Home therapy is also practical for maintenance therapy after pain has lessened and sensation has improved. It is important to understand that maintenance therapy is needed or the symptoms will likely return over time.

Therapy for Neuropathy Pain Support: Convenient & Comfortable

 

Set equipment up in a basket or on a table next to a comfortable chair. Many people like to put their feet up or use a recliner. Just relax or use the time watching television or doing another seated activity. Many additional options can be used in clinical settings. We recommend setting up therapy stations, or mobile carts with all components easily accessible for use in multiple locations. 

 

Over 3 million new cases of peripheral neuropathy are diagnosed each year in the United States. And this rate just keeps growing. LED light therapy has shown significant results in relieving the pain and discomfort of this condition and improving sensation. 

How often can light therapy be used for peripheral neuropathy support?

A minimum of three times per week for 8-12 weeks. More frequent or daily use can reduce the number of weeks necessary to reach maximum improvement. Typically, a regular schedule of maintenance treatments helps sustain improvement.
