Neuropathy can affect anyone at any time. Like many things, neuropathy can start out small. The pain might not be that intense, but when left untreated, this issue can quickly spiral. Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition that still has some confusion surrounding it. Unfortunately, many doctors believe that nerve endings can not heal and neuropathy can not be treated. This leaves so many patients hopeless and on prescription medication to manage neuropathy pain for the rest of their lives. However, this is not the truth anymore! More and more research studies have been conducted and we are finding that there are treatment options. Not only are there treatment options available, but they’re affordable and actually work. Melvin shares his story of how he overcame peripheral neuropathy pain with treatment and how he is truly living now. He speaks on how the other seniors in the pool tell him to slow down because he’s making them look bad! Before treatment, Melvin could never imagine living a life like this again.  The best part of this treatment is not only that it works, but also that it gives people hope and their sense of adventure back. Without neuropathy pain, these individuals are back to living the active life they want to live, with no prescription medication! This treatment also greatly benefits diabetics. Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics need to be cautious of neuropathy and watch for the warning signs. If any burning, tingling, numbness, sharp or stabbing pain, or pins and needles sensation is occurring in the arms, hands, legs, or feet, neuropathy may already be getting started.  Neuropathy does not have to be a scary diagnosis. Dr. Alexander Jimenez makes sure all his patient’s concerns are met and they have the proper information regarding healing and treatment. There are treatments available and a knowledgeable doctor can help make neuropathy pain a distant memory. – Kenna Vaughn, Senior Health Coach



[00:00:18] You’ve probably seen a number of medical professionals about your peripheral neuropathy, pain, perhaps tried various prescription drugs. But despite everything you’ve tried, your pain still exists. Maybe worst of all, you’ve been told by one or more doctors you’ll just have to live with it or that your pain’s all in your head.

[00:00:36] When a patient first walks through our doors, they’re typically very skeptical. And I understand where they’re coming from. They’ve usually been to a variety of doctors spanning from podiatrist to some of the most renowned neurologists who basically say the same thing. Your neuropathy is permanent and you need to learn to live with it. Then they’re sent out the door with a bunch of medications, only to realize that they haven’t received the relief they had hoped for. And the problem with this approach is not only does a medication not help the nerves, but it carries a vast array of side effects. Now, what makes our approach different is that we focus on treating the underlying cause of neuropathy, whereas most medical facilities treat the symptoms with medication. And we have great results with this.

[00:01:21] We know peripheral neuropathy pain is real. We see it everyday in the countless number of patients we treat.

[00:01:27] I felt like I was walking on sharp glass every time I stood up and my back surgeon said that that was because of my diabetes and it would just progressively get worse. Like this gets worse. Only I can handle. I’m able to do a lot. In fact, I usually do swimming pool to a therapy three times a week. And what I’m doing basically is you’re running back to work in the water, trying to strengthen my body. And I’m not having the same painful existence by just putting my foot down and putting weight on it. I’m able to do quite a bit. In fact, the other seniors in the pool, they always tell me to slow down because I’m making them look too bad. That tickles. This treatment has helped me enjoy the things I always enjoy, and I’m able to do them again and not be apprehensive about it.

[00:02:27] At its worst, I could barely walk beforehand, I would exercise regularly. I like to be outdoors, like to run, like exercise. That stopped. I was homebound. I had to take leave of absence from work. And everyday actions essentially became not possible. I’m back to a place now where I didn’t think it was possible. I had been told that my nerves may heal, but I was not going to ever have 100 percent recovery. And I think that this treatment more than any other has gotten me towards that, towards my goals of getting better and running and exercising and feeling good and being pain free. And that’s where I wanted to be, and thats where I am now.

[00:03:23] I started experiencing the neuropathy about a year before I retired from work and I started by feeling the discomfort under my feet and that discomfort escalated to sharper pain, both lightening pain in my feet and my legs. And it was so bad that it would wake me up. I just couldn’t get a full night’s sleep. I can do many things now. I can even play basketball and golf again. I mean, that is that is unreal. I mean, I mean, playing basketball with a bunch of 14 and 15 year olds. Some believe so. I can I can attest to the to the success. I came here for.
