What is Peripheral Neuropathy? The Basics…

Peripheral Neuropathy is and literally means disease of the nerves located anywhere outside of the brain and spinal cord. In other words, peripheral neuropathy includes the conditions that occur when nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body are damaged, diseased or not functioning in a normal way.

Nerves have one primary role in the body, to carry information to or from one area of the body to another area. In a broader overview, nerves are utilized to convey information back and forth to the brain from the rest of the body.

Who is at Risk?

  • Over 20 Million Americans currently have peripheral neuropathy
  • 50 years of age or older is the group mostly commonly affected
  • Nearly 60% of diabetics have neuropathy
  • Many cancer patients are getting chemotherapy induced neuropathies
  • Some cholesterol lowering medications, called statins, are causing neuropathies

The Sad Truth for many of those suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy is that…

  • They have symptoms that will typically worsen as long as the nerves continue to be diseased and dysfunctional
  • They will lose countless nights of sleep, which can cause many other health problems
  • They are more likely to be injured by a fall if they can hardly feel their feet and legs
  • Their risk of having a limb amputated goes up as their health condition worsens

The Worst Thing Your Doctor Could Have Told You About Your Peripheral Neuropathy: In their "medical opinion", you will simply have to live with the pain.


Cindy's Victory Story
The neuropathy started 6 years ago after having chemotherapy. The intensity of the symptoms and pain in my hands and feet were terrible. Every year the pain seemed to get worse and worse. My doctor at Oak Creek Relief & Wellness told me it could take several weeks to notice a difference, but after the first week my hands felt great. It has been 8 weeks since I started care, I'm 80% better and no longer need my neuropathy medications.

Betty's Victory Story
When I first read about this treatment program, I had really been down in the dumps about how bad my feet were getting. Over the previous 18 months my problems were only getting worse. My balance was so bad that I had trouble walking and my feet were always numb. After starting care, I began having relief in about 2 weeks. After 10 weeks of treatment, my feet feel great, my balance is better and I can walk again without the problems I had for almost 2 years. I'm so grateful. Thanks Oak Creek Relief & Wellness.

Ronnie's Victory Story
I believe the problems with my sciatic nerve started in 1997. I took physical therapy classes and was prescribed pain pills, which I couldn't take because they made me feel like I was walking in slow motion and light-headed. The problems seemed to subside over time but came back. I had the pain on my left side again, after reading literature about spinal decompression that stretched the back and finally made up my mind to try it. I must say that after my first treatment, the pain was gone. I also have diabetic neuropathy in both my legs and feet, since I've bee receiving the light therapy, they feel much better. I should have started earlier at Oak Creek Relief & Wellness. I told a friend of mind to try it out, now he is coming and feeling better, too. If I hear someone say that they have sciatic nerve problems, I tell them to try it out.
