Experience healing naturally and effectively.
Neuropathy is a condition that affects more than 20 million people in the United States and is frequently disabling. In severe cases, neuropathy can lead to gangrene or the amputation of a limb if it is not treated. IHS Medical Group is a renowned integrated medical facility in Los Angeles that focuses on treating patients through cellular regeneration and healing.
What is Neuropathy?
The condition known as neuropathy occurs when the nerves in the body suffer damage or start to degenerate, impairing their ability to function. Similar to electrical wires, the human body’s nerves can “short circuit” and frequently send incorrect signals to the brain, which can cause a variety of uncomfortable and difficult-to-live-with symptoms. More than 20 million Americans currently suffer from neuropathy, which is frequently difficult to live with and frequently incapacitating. If neuropathy is not treated, it may even result in gangrene or the amputation of a limb.
What are the symptoms of Neuropathy?
- prickling, burning, or tingling sensation
- Numbness, either temporary or persistent
- weakened muscles
- Loss of balance
- malfunction of glands or organs
- heightened touch sensitivity
- Back pain
What Causes Neuropathy?
Numerous factors, including poorly managed diabetes, which is responsible for about 60% of cases, can result in the nerve damage that underlies neuropathy. More than 20% of cases have an undetermined cause, but other factors can include chemotherapy, HIV, kidney disease, shingles, autoimmune diseases, sciatica, back injuries, hereditary disorders, alcoholism, and autoimmune diseases.

What Treatments Are Provided for Diabetes?
IHS Medical Group will access your conditions to determine a personalized treatment plan, which may include Physiologic Insulin Desensitization (PIR), Electromedicine, Physical Rehab, or Joint Injections.
Physiologic Insulin Desensitization (PIR)
Physiologic Insulin Desensitization is a ground-breaking, multi-patented method that addresses the primary cause of diabetes, which is a metabolic failure, by administering insulin as a hormone rather than a drug. We are better able to reduce insulin resistance by using insulin in a way that bio-imitates healthy physiology, which makes it easier for blood sugar to enter each cell and be converted into energy. Damaged tissues and organs are able to grow, repair, and regenerate when cellular energy is increased. This method has frequently demonstrated the ability to stabilize and, in some cases, reverse the effects of the complications of diabetic neuropathy and other metabolic disorders.
If you have diabetes or another condition that has caused you to become deconditioned, physical therapy can help you regain your previous level of function or your maximum potential. Along with improving your strength, you may also lessen pain, increase your pain tolerance, endurance, and balance, as well as correct the general biomechanical problems that led to the degeneration in the first place.
The non-surgical procedure of joint injections is used to treat connective tissue injuries that have not recovered using other conventional treatments. Our joint injections encourage a healing response in minor tears and weakened tissue with the aim of reducing pain and enhancing function. This treatment can provide you with long-term pain relief.
