BIRMINGHAM, Ala., July 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Chris Harrison Chiropractic announced that the practice has had significant success treating patients for peripheral neuropathy using a new treatment protocol. The treatment protocol, known as Tesla Technology, works by improving circulation in the legs and feet. According to chiropractor Dr. Chris Harrison, improving circulation is critical to reversing nerve damage and preventing other problems, including the loss of motor skills and the loss of a foot or limb. The chiropractor says that Tesla Technology is also effective for addressing issues associated with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, which affects 40% of all peripheral neuropathy patients.
Chiropractor Dr. Chris Harrison is now treating peripheral neuropathy patients using Tesla Technology, a treatment approach Dr. Harrison says is "revolutionizing peripheral neuropathy treatment."
An estimated 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops as the result of damage to the peripheral nerves, according to the National Institute on Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Peripheral neuropathy is often associated with sensory nerve damage that may ultimately make it impossible for those affected to coordinate complex motor skill functions, like walking.
"Peripheral neuropathy can truly rob an individual of their independence," said Dr. Harrison. "Not only is this condition especially painful, but even the loss of limbs can occur without appropriate treatment. Unfortunately, most treatment techniques simply focus on addressing the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy pain. Our approach is different."
Treatment at The Chris Harrison Chiropractic Office involves the Tesla Technology to create painless, deep muscle and blood vessel contractions. These contractions stimulate the flow of blood through the legs and feet, increasing circulation. Poor circulation is one of the primary causes for peripheral neuropathy pain and secondary complications. By improving circulation, Tesla Treatment brings fresh, oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the body's extremities.
"When the extremities like the toes and feet are deprived of oxygen and nutrient-rich blood, nerves become damaged and begin to degenerate," said Dr. Harrison. "The resulting pain is familiar to anyone with peripheral neuropathy: radiating numbing pain sensations, tingling sensations, and the loss of feeling in these body parts. Without effective treatment, peripheral neuropathy can worsen and ultimately lead to serious health problems, including the loss of a foot or limb."
For patients with diabetes, the Tesla Technology treatment is also beneficial for addressing circulatory problems caused by high blood sugar, says the chiropractor. High blood sugar levels can cause red blood cells to clump together, which makes it difficult for the blood cells to pass through the capillaries. Tesla technology increases blood flow velocity and pressure, which separates the blood cells and forces them through the vessels and capillaries.
"The greatest benefits of Tesla Technology are achieved through long-term treatment of at least several months," says Dr. Harrison. "Nerve regeneration is a slow process, so the greatest results are achieved with ongoing care."
