Peripheral Neuropathy is a painful condition resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves. Symptoms include numbness, tingling, pins and needles sensations, burning, and nerve pain. A proven treatment for peripheral neuropathy is Anodyne Therapy, a non-invasive treatment that has garnered praise in clinical studies and anecdotal kudos from podiatrists and their patients. The device, which received FDA approval in 1994, reduces pain and increases circulation, according to the company Anodyne Therapy. How does it work? The Anodyne Therapy System uses monochromatic infrared energy (MIRE) to release nitric oxide from the patient’s red blood cells. This improves nerve function and is important for making new blood vessels and healing wounds. As nerves heal, normal sensation returns to the foot and pain subsides.
