Learn About Our Exclusive Therapies For Managing Peripheral Neuropathy

Anodyne Therapy Overview:

The Anodyne Therapy Model 480 PRO is the premium infrared light therapy product designed for use by healthcare professionals.  The Model 480 PRO allows healthcare professionals to adjust the intensity of infrared energy output to increase local circulation and relieve pain most effectively.  The Model 480 PRO also allows healthcare professionals to treat multiple locations where the patient experiences pain (such as the elbow and hand).

How Does Anodyne Therapy Work?

Anodyne Therapy uses only infrared light-emitting diodes (LEDs) because infrared light penetrates more deeply into the body and works better than red or blue light, for instance. While we cannot see infrared, our bodies respond to infrared with increased circulation and reduced pain.

What is the bio/physiological reaction to infrared light? 

Scientific evidence shows that IR light triggers the release of nitric oxide from blood vessels and from red blood cells at the site of treatment. Nitric oxide causes local vasodilation, again locally, that lasts several hours after the treatments cease. Vasodilation improves blood flow and is useful in patients whose peripheral neuropathy is due to poor blood flow.

Who Uses Anodyne Therapy?

Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Physicians and Nurses treat patients in their offices with Anodyne Therapy. Patients just like you are using Anodyne Therapy for drug-free pain relief.

TeslaMax Pain Relief & Muscle Balance:

The TeslaMax® is a Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulator that allows for deeper contractions for longer periods of time. This Rehab device takes advantage of AC power, instead of DC power, to limit the Maximum Amperage Per Second (MAPS) to provide a high-voltage, low-amperage muscle- stim to the patient.

Why Choose the TeslaMax 4 for Electric Muscle Stimulation?

Uses Alternating Current: The Tesla-Based Technology™ in the TeslaMax® uses alternating current (AC) instead of Direct Current (DC).

Technology™, the TeslaMax can output high voltage at a very low average amperage. With such a high volt to milliamp ratio, you can get very deep muscle contractions with no patient discomfort whatsoever. The increased contractions lead to increased perfusion, oxygenation, and circulation to treatment areas, which have shown to vastly improve patient outcomes.

In the 60’s the Russians developed a type of electrical current that could be used to enhance muscle strength for Olympic weightlifters. It was in fact more effective than traditional DC Output systems but painful when used at a high enough voltage setting to create muscle contractions; therefore it was of little use in medical clinics.  Its ratio of amperage to voltage, while better than other DC output systems, was still too high for comfort. Eventually it fell out of favor among athletes due to the pain of usage.  The reason it was so painful was due to the use of DC (direct current – all the electrons moving in only one direction) current instead of AC (alternating current – electrons moving back and forth alternating direction).

Virtually all electrical stimulation devices use a direct current (DC) output at varying voltages, amperages, and wave forms.    The TeslaMax® AC output technology operates at nearly 2,300% lower maximum average amperage output (max 5 mAs) compared to traditional DC output systems (max 90 mAs) so that even at maximum output it cannot burn the patient or cause blisters unlike most of the other units.  This is particularly important for peripheral neuropathy patients who can’t feel much of anything in their feet. Increasing intensity to the point of perception in severe patients most often results in electrode burns.

The TeslaMax® line of TBT (Tesla-based technology) electrical muscle stimulation devices optimize the use of Nikola Tesla’s patented technology to produce the deepest possible contractions at the greatest possible comfort for patients thus dramatically increasing deep muscle activity to better move out edema and significantly increase blood circulation in the treated area.  Patients can tell that they are getting much deeper contractions with the Tesla and yet they report it is also somehow more comfortable with less “bite” to the electricity running through their muscles.

How and why it works!

The health of peripheral nerves is heavily dependent upon blood flow, which is increased by use of the TeslaMax through deep muscle stimulation.  When blood flow to an area is increased, so must the outflow. That is, as arterial blood flow increases, so does the venous return. An often-forgotten fact is that the flow of lymphatic fluid (the waste elimination system) is also increased equivalent to the venous flow. The lymphatic system pumps out the inflammation, swelling, edema and waste from an area of damage or illness. The greater the lymphatic flow, the faster a patient heals from whatever ails them.  This “pumping” of lymph is done by way of muscle contractions.

How Does This Apply to Peripheral Neuropathy?

Improving blood flow lessens what is known as “ischemic” pain and helps nerves to begin to carry sensations again. Remember, sensory loss due to poor blood flow to nerves, is a symptom of peripheral neuropathy.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Healthy and Non-healthy Blood Vessels in the feet

Peripheral Neuropathy is a progressive degeneration of the arteries that wrap around the nerves in the feet. It progresses much like the stages of cancer: as blood vessels die off, the insulation around your nerves dies off because the vessels can’t get any nutrients to the nerve.

As this insulation around your nerves dies, the underlying nerve becomes exposed, much like a broken toaster cord. The electrical wiring system from your feet to your brain becomes broken and shorts out, causing pain. As the disease progresses, more arteries die off, causing more and more damage to the insulation and the underlying nerve.

What are the Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy?

There are seven (7) different nerves that run along the surface of your skin. These nerves die off at different rates, giving you many different symptoms of Neuropathy. These symptoms include:

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Numbness
  • Pins and needles sensations
  • Sharp pains
  • Cramping pains
  • Cold feet
  • Feeling like you’re walking on hot coals or feet that are on fire

Sometimes, patients can’t stand having blankets on their feet while they sleep. Other times, patients complain that it feels as though their socks are bunched up under their toes, although they’re not. Some patients describe the sharp pains in comparison to being prodded by an ice pick.

What is the Standard of Care for Peripheral Neuropathy?

The Standard of Care is to prescribe Gabapentin, Lyrica, Cymbalta, or Neurontin.

These drugs are ONLY APPROVED by the FDA as ANTISEIZURE drugs. 

What are the Dangers of Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral Neuropathy kills the blood vessels and nerves in your feet, leading to ulcers, infections and amputations. 85% of lower limb amputations are preceded by a foot ulcer.

Last year alone, more than 185,000 Neuropathy related amputations were performed in the United States and more than 1 million were performed globally. This means more than 500 per day in the United States and one every 30 seconds globally. Of persons with Diabetes who have a lower extremity amputation, up to 55% will require amputation of the second leg within 2-3 years.  Sadly, nearly half of the individuals who have an amputation due to Peripheral Neuropathy will lose their life within 5 years. This is higher than the five-year mortality rates for breast cancer, colon cancer, and prostate cancer.

Most patients have been told by their doctor, "You just have to live with it." Most patients DO NOT know that both Peripheral Neuropathy and the standard medications being prescribed have been linked to Memory Loss, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia, Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease.

Advanced Spinal Care & Rehabilitation offers you new hope without those endless drugs and their serious side effects.

Old man fell down from the steps

Sadly, 10% of patients with Neuropathy who fall DIE of a pulmonary embolism. 20% - 30% of patients who fall end up with severe injuries that result in going to a managed care facility.

In order to effectively treat your Neuropathy, three factors must be determined:

  1. What is the underlying cause?
  2. How much nerve damage has been sustained?*
  3. How much treatment will your condition require?

Don't Hesitate to Act Now!

*Peripheral Neuropathy is a progressive condition, and once you have sustained 85% nerve loss, there is likely no further treatment available.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Our patent-pending protocols reverse the devastating effects of Peripheral Neuropathy by combining the latest neuroscience research with 21st-century FDA-approved equipment. Our protocols are backed up by over 3,700 research studies.

We use research-backed light and vibrational frequencies to increase perfusion into the legs and feet by over 511%. Our Neuropathy program accelerates blood vessel tissue regeneration and creates new blood vessels in the extremities of Neuropathy patients. This is known as "Angiogenesis".

Perfusion into the feet

We use High Voltage, Low Milliamperage AC technology on the extremities of Neuropathy patients to regenerate the nerves and blood vessels in as little as 8 weeks.

This technology accelerates nerve and vascular regeneration, saving limbs from amputation. We are able to reverse the vascular destruction and nerve damage from Neuropathy by 80-100%.

Peripheral Neuropathy also causes Memory Loss, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia and Balance problems. These areas of the brain affected by your Peripheral Neuropathy are known as "Impact Areas". We use sophisticated computer microchip AC technology and the latest laser technology to reverse these brain-related problems that occur from Peripheral Neuropathy. Our research-backed protocols not only reverse your Peripheral Neuropathy by 80% – 100%, but can also reverse your symptoms of Diabetes.

We combine this technology with specific brain-based exercises to promote the connections of healthy neural networks in the brain. This is known as "Neuroplasticity". This is how our program works to address Memory Loss, Depression, Anxiety, Insomnia and balance problems associated with Neuropathy.

The Peripheral Neuropathy sessions last about an hour and a half and are rendered at a frequency of twice a week for 8 weeks. To qualify for our Peripheral Neuropathy program, the patient must meet certain criteria. It takes about 45 minutes to determine what is causing your Peripheral Neuropathy, how much damage the Neuropathy has caused and how much treatment your Neuropathy will require in order to reverse it by 80% - 100%.

“I spent thousands of dollars on insoles, lotions, heating pads, soothing foot tub and everything I could find to help with the pain! I had to plan my work day around how I was going to be able to stay off my feet. After my 7th treatment, my customers were saying WOW Barb you're walking so much better. I tell you what, I could walk anywhere NOW." - Barb P.

“My feet felt like I was always walking on "hot coals". I'm standing all the time at work and at the end of my shift, my feet are on fire! Did the program! No more burning pain!!" - Debbie B.

"I was having SEVERE CRAMPING pain in my calves at night before the program. I haven't had any cramping since my 1st treatment. I've been out of the program for 6 months now and still NO CRAMPING. Thank you!" - Randal M.

"It felt like someone was stabbing my ankles with an icepick! I just couldn't sleep at alI. I'd wake up tired. I told my husband, if I could just get rid of these sharp ankle pains, we could go on walks again. Did the program and my husband and I enjoy taking long PAIN-FREE walks." - Tracy R.

"Felt like I was sitting on the sidelines watching life pass me by. My feet were constantly cold, numb and the prickly tingling pain kept me up all night along with the severe leg cramps. I couldn't participate in normal activities. Then I did the program. It's been over 6 months since I finished the program and still, I'm pain-free and NOT sitting on the sidelines of life anymore. I'm enjoying life again!! Thank you so much!" - Susanna S.

''When I started the Neuropathy program I couldn't feed myself, dress myself, couldn't get out of bed without my wife helping me. I was in a wheelchair. I'm diabetic. I was in stage IV kidney failure. My heart rate was so low, they wanted to put a pacemaker in me. My legs and feet all the way to my knees were dark purple and black. They were talking about getting me scheduled for "below the knee" amputations in both extremities. After about the 3rd treatment, I went from a wheelchair to a walker. My diabetes took a "nose dive". I'm only taking 1/3 of what I was taking before. My kidney doctor said my kidneys are better and says I'm no longer at a stage IV, but now I'm a stage III. I can feed and dress myself and get out of bed without any help. I'm much more active and able to enjoy doing normal activities at the Senior Center with my wife.'' - Richard B.

"My feet had been numb and tingly and felt like I had been walking on hot coals for almost a decade. My balance problems caused me to fall and break my hip, which landed me in a nursing home for 6 months of therapy. I recovered from my broken hip, but still suffered from the burning pain and numbness and tingling. I had to use a wheelchair just to get around. My balance problems were still bad and I feared falling again. My wife had to help me with getting dressed and with getting around. She had to do the grocery shopping by herself because I could no longer get around. Then a friend recommended the Neuropathy program because it helped him. I did it and I don't have any numbness or tingling anymore and my balance is as good as it was when I was in my 20's. The burning pain went away after my 6th treatment and hasn't returned. It's been over a year now since I did the program. I am still symptom FREE after a year! You don't have to live with Neuropathy!!" - Daniel P.

"I was diagnosed with Neuropathy, and had numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. My doctors told me there was no treatment for Neuropathy, and I never questioned it. After the course of Neuropathy treatment, I have feeling again in my hands and feet and they are much better! If you’re suffering with Neuropathy, don’t wait, get the treatment you need today!" - Owen R.
