Diabetic Neuropathy Overview
Diabetic Neuropathy is a debilitating complication of diabetes. It's estimated that 50% of people with diabetes have some degree of diabetic neuropathy.
The condition starts as minor pain or numbness in the extremeties, but has the potential to become a much more serious issue. Eventually, people sufferering from diabetic neuropathy may end up with loss of sensation in the feet, which predisposes them to a variety of foot injuries, including ulcers.
If an ulcer develops, the risk of negative outcomes increases significantly, and the condition may even require amputation of the limb.
Outside of the personal costs associated with diabetic neuropathy, the condition costs the US helathcare system between $4.6 and $13.7 billion each year. Up to 27% of the direct medical cost of diabetes may be attributed to diabetic neuropathy.
How Does Diabetic Neuropahty Develop?
Diabetic Neuropathy occurs when hyperglycemic conditions in the blood stream cause decreased blood supply to nerves.
Blood carries necessary resources, like oxygen and nutrients, to the nerves. Thus, when blood supply is decreased to the nerves, the nerve becomes starved, inflamed, and eventually damaged. When the nerve becomes damaged, either pain or numbness start to set in. The longer the body is exposed to hyperglycemic conditions, the more diabetic neuropathy escalates.
In order to manage the condition, a community based approach is needed which includes programs that address both the hyperglycemic condition (for example, dietary factors) and decreased blood supply.
How Does Premier Neuro Therapy Impact Diabetic Neuropathy?
Premier Neuro Therapy works to minimize symptoms, such as pain and numbness, associated with diabetic neuropathy via 4 pathways:
Diabetic Neuropathy is a serious condition that must be taken seriously. The longer your body is exposed to hyperglycemic conditions, the greater the risk is of debilitating diabetic neuropathy leading to ulceration and potentially amputation.
In order to slow the progress of diabetic neuropathy, a two pronged approach is needed that both manages the hyperglycemic condition and increases blood supply to the affected nerves.

The other day, a new client mentioned that she had been on our website, and initially thought that Neuro Therapy was only for professional athletes.
It's an understandable stance, based on the information on the website, and it's true that I initially worked primarily with professional athletes all over the United States.
However, as more and more athletes sought out Premier’s services, cases became more and more complex. The Premier team was no longer just helping athletes who suffered acute injuries to get back on the field efficiently, but also athletes who were struggling with repetitive injuries, delayed recovery from surgery, and persistent pain.
The latter group of athletes had been through months of physical therapy, and sometimes even surgery, but still could not perform without the lingering effects of injury including severe pain, decreased range of motion, decreased strength, and decreased overall daily function.
We started to wonder... if Neuro Therapy can have this kind of impact on those lives, who else can it help?
Today, Premier serves a population of people consisting of all ages, genders, and races ranging from the 8 year old gymnast who's hoping to get back on the mat to the 84 year old grandmother who wants to keep up with her grandkids.
If you asked me to sit down and define who Neuro Therapy is for, I would boil it down to a 5 main groups:
You’ve tried multiple other forms of therapy (massage, chiropractic, in-home exercises, traditional PT, painkillers) and are starting to think surgery, alifetime of medication, or “just living with it” are your only options.
You’ve already had surgery and it hasn’t done much to improve the way you are feeling. The recovery is slower than expected, has stalled out, or actually has you feeling worse and worrying more than before.
You’ve just had surgery or gotten injured and are feeling like it will take forever to get back to the activity or performance levels you were at before (and maybe worried about the risk of re-injury).
You experienced an injury and re-injured it when trying to return to high activity levels. Now, you want to recover as quickly as possible but are concerned it could happen again.
A friend who’s already experienced Neuro Therapy told you this is the best way to recover and you 100% need to try it.
