Both feet are numb. A Chiropractor is offering a treatment

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have neuropathy. The bottom of both feet and the top front of both feet are numb. I do not have pain or tingling. I take no drugs for this condition.

The numbness is affecting my balance and causes some discomfort. As you can guess, there is no medical solution.

A local chiropractor claims to offer a possible solution. Using PEMF therapy, LED therapy, Neuro med and nerve stimulation device to be used at home and natural supplement. Requires 8 to 13 visits.

My research shows a few chiropractors around the country are offering this treatment.

Has anyone tried this treatment and what is your experience?

    I live in U.S. but have the same problem with feet. I read that the B Vitamins are good and began taking a product called Neuro-Gen, I also saw a Chiropractor who did laser treatments and electrical type stimulation plus massage for several months. The process took a while but it did help and I have much more feeling in my feet since then.

    I use an equipment that has helped me with my neuropathy. I bought it to help me with the symptoms, I do the therapy at my own at home. If you are interested I´ll leave the info here.

    I really hope this will help you and others just the way it has helped me.
