At Physical Therapy Centers of Georgia we take a holistic, dynamic approach to treating neuropathy due to underlying conditions such as diabetes, vascular disease, neuromas, as well as, chemotherapy related impairments. Treatment begins with Anodyne Therapy, the only therapeutic grade InfraRed unit on the market. This non-invasive, drug-free, pain-free treatment is FDA approved for the treatment of the impaired circulation, and peripheral nerve pain. The result is decreased pain, burning and tingling, especially at night, decreased night time cramping in the lower extremities, and in most cases, full return of sensation. Patients are then taught how to effectively perform circulation exercises to enhance the benefits of Anodyne treatments while at home. Treatment is not complete without addressing loss of balance, coordination of movement and functional limitations. Benefits of such treatments include improved levels of daily activity and quality of life, decreased need for nerve or pain medications and decreased fall risk.
We pride ourselves with offering our patients superior care and superior technology. AlterG, developed by NASA, by unweighting the body, has allowed those who have had limited ability for tasks as simple as walking across the room, to walk for up to 30 minutes. Eccentron, being the 1st unit used in treatment in the United States, focuses on coordination of motion and strength and endurance of the lower extremities. These technologies are used in combination with center of gravity awareness and reaction time training, range of motion, flexibility and strength exercises to improve gait/balance abnormalities, functional quality, and most importantly, personal safety.
