Searching for a Diabetic Neuropathy Cure? New, Proven Treatment Revealed

Proven Relief of Diabetic Neuropathy Symptoms

 

80 Year-Old Technique Effectively Improves Circulation & Nerve Supply to Legs

Beginning in 1929 German physical therapists developed a gentle hands-on method to stimulate the nerves in the legs and restore blood flow.

They found plenty of patients back then who needed this treatment.  But they could never have anticipated the epidemic of type 2 diabetes that would swamp America in the 21st century.

Today, nerve problems and impaired circulation cause pain, numbness, and tingling in the legs of many diabetics.  These symptoms can hit you even if you’ve done a good job of controlling your blood sugar levels.  And in the worst-case scenario, they can even lead to the need for amputation.

NeuroTactile ™ Therapy to the Rescue

Today, that nearly-forgotten method of nerve treatment is needed more than ever.  We’ll call it NeuroTactile (tm) Therapy, though in German it’s called bindegewebsmassage.

Recently, a team of scientists has proven that NeuroTactile Therapy works for diabetic neuropathy symptoms.

Their research was published in 2011 in the journal Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine.   A group of diabetics with circulatory problems in their legs received twice-weekly treatments with gentle nerve reflex therapy for 15 weeks.  Of course, to make it scientific, there was a control group who received sham treatment.

The patients who were treated with nerve reflex therapy enjoyed

  • More blood flow to their legs
  • Increased skin temperature
  • More oxygen getting to their tissues, and
  • Improvement in other health measures.

What’s even more exciting is that these improvements persisted for more than a year after the end of the treatment protocol.

I’ve been an innovator in providing NeuroTactile Therapy for more than 30 years.

  1. George Blomme says:

    Would near-knee-length compression stockings or Ace bandage wraps provide the same or similar therapy?

    • Ron Lavine, D.C. says:

      No, sorry. The compression stockings change the static balance of blood flow to the leg, but don’t help the neurological mechanisms that allow the body to better regulate blood flow in the first place.

      Thanks for the question.
