Neuropathy treatments are designed to relieve pain and improve the overall quality of life. A person with peripheral neuropathy will experience several symptoms, including numbness and tingling in the hands and feet.
Treatments may involve Laser Therapy, ECT therapy by sanexas, physical therapy, pain relievers, or surgery. The aim is to help slow down the progression of the disease and prevent its occurrence.
Laser therapy is a noninvasive, painless procedure that accelerates healing. A laser is a light penetrating the skin to promote tissue regeneration.
For example, this is an excellent way to treat plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, post-surgical pain or wounds.
Laser therapy doesn't require surgery or produce any adverse side effects.
Athletes Foot Care
Athlete's foot is a common condition that affects up to 15% of the population. It is caused by a fungus, and the fungi thrive in damp, dark places. Some types of the disease can cause chronic dry skin.This can lead to a scaly rash that may develop into blisters.
If you notice the signs of an athlete's foot, make an appointment with a podiatrist. They can help you determine the severity of the infection and prescribe medication to treat it.
Diabetic Foot Care
If you have diabetes, you have a heightened risk of developing a foot ulcer. This can lead to amputation. However, proper diabetic foot care can prevent this from happening.
If you are diabetic, you should have your feet checked every year. You should also moisturize your feet regularly. Applying moisturizer after a shower is a good idea, but avoid moisturizing between your toes, as it can encourage a fungal infection.
As a mobile podiatrist in the Maryland and DC area, Dr. Andre can help you with diabetic foot care at your home.
