(prREACH) Dr. Davis is a podiatrist practicing in San Antonio with over 25 years of experience treating a wide range of foot and ankle problems. One of the more prevalent and difficult to treat problems is peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy involves degeneration of the nerves in the feet and legs. It can cause pain, numbness or both. It is more common in diabetics but can affect others. Much of the treatments for peripheral neuropathy involve medications to control the symptoms but Dr. Davis, after performing research on advanced techniques chose an affiliation with US Neuropathy Centers.
US Neuropathy Centers (USNC), a nationwide affiliation of experts who provide the most up-to-date, evidence-based and comprehensive treatment of peripheral neuropathy utilizing a multimodal, patient focused approach.
Peripheral neuropathy is actually a symptom that can have one or more than 100 possible causes. There is no “cure” for this disease—but there are effective treatments. Unfortunately, in the case of PN, the “standard” of care for decades has been simply to attempt to manage the pain with medication such as Lyrica, gabapentin, or similarly acting pharmaceuticals.
The team at USNC has spent decades researching accurate diagnostic and innovative treatment options that go beyond simple pain management and look to provide real solutions. Their methods help identify the true cause of the neuropathy, so they can tailor a treatment plan that will meet each patient’s specific need. They offer traditional treatment approaches, such as electrical stimulation therapy, but also specialize in advanced treatment approaches such as Surgical Management / Nerve Decompression, Alternate Non-Surgical Therapies, Tailored pharmacotherapy, non-narcotic solutions, nutraceuticals and more.
Patients suffering with any of symptoms generally associated with peripheral neuropathy in the feet or legs, such as, tingling, numbness, burning pain, general pain, muscle weakness, loss of sensation or abnormally sensitive skin, are encouraged to visit the website of US Neuropathy Centers, http://www.usneuropathycenters.com/ or contact Dr. Ed Davis locally at 210-490-3668.
