Linda Griffin came to our Shelbyville Clinic because of weakness in her legs due to Multiple Sclerosis. The tingling and burning in her hands and feet needed to be addressed despite the fact that it was not why she originally came to therapy. The wonderful therapists at Elite PT and Balance put together a plan using the latest technology to treat her neuropathy and weakness in legs.
As part of your rehabilitation process with neuropathy you may be assigned some specific exercises at home and your therapist may give you instructions on certain activities to avoid. Since neuropathic changes in the feet can greatly affect your ability to perceive sensation you may be instructed to wear shoes at all times when standing or walking.
Medications are often provided to treat peripheral neuropathy symptoms. The problem with medications alone is they do not treat the dysfunction but rather just mask neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain is a problem with your nerves, meaning, neuropathy is an electrical problem, and therefore needs an electrical fix. The ReBuilder is an electrical fix.

At all three of our locations, Elite Physical Therapy uses ReBuilder to assist our patients in managing pain and numbness due to neuropathy. This technology helps to calm overactive nerves and wake up under-active nerves.
