Edgewood offers treatment program for peripheral neuropathy

Edgewood Manor Nursing Center has announced a new program which will benefit those suffering from peripheral neuropathy, a common complication which can be heredity or the result of diabetes, chemotherapy, cardiovascular disease or alcohol abuse.

PN is characterized by damage to the vast communication system that transmits information from the brain to the central nervous system to every part of the body. Like static on a telephone, PN distorts and sometimes interrupts messages to the skin and muscles causing pain, weakness and swelling.

Edgewood Manor and Accelerated Care Plus, the premier solutions provider, have coordinated and completed training for their clinicians with the Neuroprobe 500.
The Neuroprobe 500 provides painless sub-sensory or sensory electrical stimulation in combination with near red light therapy.

This probe can also be used along with adjunctive therapy for complex regional pain syndrome, scar tissue, carpal tunnel, acute and chronic lower back pain, CVA should pain, headaches, TMJ, tinnitis, acute traumatic pain, muscle spasm reduction, myofacial trigger point pain, neuropathy, tendonitis and ligament sprains.

This service can be provided on an in-patient or out-patient basis. For information, contact Adam Eibling, Edgewood Manor, director of public relations at 419-734-5506.
