Many of our patients have diabetes, which isn’t surprising when you consider this condition affects more than 30 million people in the United States. Some people manage diabetes with lifestyle adjustments or medical treatments, but these changes don’t always eliminate every symptom. A whopping 60% of adults with diabetes are plagued with aches from peripheral neuropathy, a painful disease that makes it nearly impossible to walk at times. This disease can be difficult to treat, but many patients get great results from Micro-Vas therapy, a treatment offered at NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine.
Before you book back surgery or decide you’re doomed to a lifetime of lumbar pain, consider spinal decompression therapy. Though you can request decompression therapy anytime your doctor deems it appropriate, this nonsurgical procedure is often a last-ditch effort from patients who haven’t gotten the results they want from other treatments. Adults with low back pain generally come to NorthEast Spine and Sports Medicine wanting decompression therapy after other doctors have recommended a spinal fusion, discectomy, or laminectomy. In many cases, we are able to help these patients avoid surgery and obtain long-lasting relief from nerve or back pain.
