Diabetic Nerve Pain (DPN) Treatments Expand to Drug-free Alternative Therapies

diabetic neuropathyAn astounding 26 million Americans are living with diabetes and about one in five experience diabetic nerve pain.

This severe chronic pain condition, called diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), has been reported by patients at a rate that is actually double the estimate from healthcare providers across the country, according to a new survey conducted by the American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA).

Despite its prevalence, the survey of 500 physicians and nurses, and over one thousand people with DPN found major misconceptions and a significant lack of patient awareness about the disease. When they do diagnose the condition, doctors often resort to writing a prescription for a painkillers, which can be prohibitively expensive, come with dangerous side effects, or become ineffective over time.

Pain Symptoms of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN):

  • Numbness
  • Stabbing pain in the hands or feet
  • Tingling or burning
  • Extreme sensitivity to pain and temperature
  • Shooting pain
  • Loss of balance

Most troubling is the fact many sufferers don’t know to ask about drug-free ways to treat this pain with their healthcare providers. Sadly, 77% of patients says DPN interferes with their ability to complete and enjoy normal day-to-day activities.

What Causes Diabetic Neuropathy?

The cause of this pain is the result of uncontrolled sugar levels that, over time, damages the nerves, most commonly affecting the toes, feet and hands.

Successful treatment for diabetic nerve pain can be challenging and the condition is often drug-resistant as well.

NEWS12 to Feature Dr. Michael Cooney and Calmare Therapy

Dr. Michael Cooney has just completed shooting a “To Your Health” with Dr. Derrick DeSilva segment for News12 where he discusses Calmare Pain Therapy Treatment. His patient, Laura Miller, an RSD and fibromyalgia sufferer for more than three years, also appeared on the program to discuss her condition, other painful and expensive chronic pain treatments that ultimately proved to be unsuccessful, and the final resolution of her pain after undergoing Calmare Therapy.

“News12 is one of the few television stations to prioritize healthcare news,” says Dr. Cooney. “They recognized the importance of informing viewers living with chronic pain that there is a new solution available to help these patients take control of their lives again.”

The Calmare Therapy segment featuring Dr. Cooney and Laura Miller will air January, 2012.
