Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) is the term used to describe disorders of the peripheral nerves. Approximately 50% of diabetics will develop the condition. Many people using statin medication may be affected by peripheral neuropathy.

Neuropathy means “disease or abnormality of the nervous system”

Peripheral nerve cells have three main parts: Cell body, axons, and dendrites (nerve/muscle junction). Any part of the nerve can be affected, but damage to axons is most common. The axon transmits signals between nerve cells or nerve cell to muscle. Most axons are surrounded by a substance call myelin, which facilitates signal transmission.

There are two types of symptoms associated with neuropathy - 
negative and positive

Negative symptoms often come first. These signal damage to the nervous system has occurred and brings about a LOSS of a particular function. For example, loss of reflexes, loss of strength, and  loss of sensation like light touch.  These are rarely detectable to the patient because the brain makes up the difference in these losses.

Only after some time do the sick and damaged nerves develop the positive signs of neuropathy; tingling , burning, biting, stabbing, shooting pains. 

Some neuropathies come on suddenly, others over many years. Some people are affected only by a weakness in the arms and legs which leads to difficulty standing, walking, or getting out of a chair. The loss of sensation from the feet, ankles and toes contributes to patients not having a ‘good sense’ of where their feet are in space, touching the ground, and this causes them to fall very easily. These under-recognized sensory losses can be detected with a thorough clinical exam.  

Some patients will eventually become unable to walk at all. Others start with a tingling, pin pricking feeling that turns into deep sharp stabbing pains and burning electric shocks. These debilitating problems can also be at their worst at night.

Dr. Lanzisera is offering this complimentary screening to help those who may benefit from care. By performing a simple test, both you and Dr Lanzisera will know if you are a possible candidate for treatment.


What if my screening shows I am a candidate for care?
Congratulations! Relief of neuropathy symptoms may be possible!

What's the next step?
If you pass the screening test, then you may opt to schedule for further testing. A consultation and examination with Dr Lanzisera takes about an hour. This visit includes a consultation, physical and neurological examinations and if brain-related symptoms (anxiety, sleep disturbance, loss of focus, etc) are involved, an eeg or brain-mapping study is performed in our office. These testing procedures can cost up to $900 but your fee would only be $125. This fee also includes your follow-up report of findings visit.

What happens at the report of findings visit?
This is when Dr Lanzisera reviews your test results with you. You will be given customized care treatment options. He will also discuss case fees. 

One more thing ...
If you choose to begin and have been qualified for care, you will be given 4 trial treatments . If you feel improvement, then you can settle up with the treatment care option of your choice. If you do not feel better, then you owe nothing.
