Active Health in Jacksonville, Florida, offers a diverse range of treatments and strategies for neuropathy pain management. Our team will determine a precise treatment program for each respective patient based on assessments and testing.
Neuropathy is the damage or dysfunction of nerves, which will usually result in numbness, muscle weakness, tingling, and pain in the affected area.
Typically starting in the hands and feet, neuropathy can be the effect of various causes, including diabetes, injuries, and infections.
There are considerable options when it comes to treating neuropathy, such as medications and therapies. The medications can include anti-seizure medications, topical treatments, antidepressants, and pain relievers. The therapies one may consider when experiencing neuropathy include plasma exchange and intravenous immune globulin, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, and physical therapy. There are cases of neuropathy that require surgery.
There are some forms of peripheral neuropathy that can be averted by preserving proper health habits, such as:
- Regular exercise
- Nutritious diet
- Refraining from excessive alcohol consumption
- Avoiding injuries
- Avoiding toxic chemicals
- Managing underlying disorders, like diabetes
Dr. Lipp’s proprietary and revolutionary form of care is very efficient and comprehensive. The evaluation will discover the true underlying root cause of your pain which will help us both correct and prevent your pain from returning. The treatment will utilize our huge toolbox of resources to help get our patients functional while reducing pain. This is how we take stress off of the damaged area allowing our patients to be able to heal and provide our patients the fastest possible results.
We use a variety of healthy joint injections for different case presentations, patients, and levels of severity to help expedite the healing process. We offer a 1% lidocaine or marcaine & 99% saline injection for relatively healthy, but inflamed joints. We use Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for anything that needs a new healing response. We offer human cellular tissue injections for anyone who needs more cushion and lubrication to help damaged joints and soft tissue heal. We will NEVER use a cortisone injection as it promotes cell death and fast tracks you to a surgery!
We use our performance labs to help “kill the pain cycle”. We can get you functioning and out of pain quickly in most cases. But if you go back to doing what you were doing how you were doing it, then the pain will return. Our various labs offer a combination both a video analysis and a function analysis. Some of our labs (Golf, Baseball (Hitting), Run, Athlete, Walk & Balance) offer a performance analysis using sensors to measure efficiency and correct inefficiencies with biofeedback training.
