Is There a Cure for Meralgia Paresthetica?

Thigh pain, or numbness in the thigh, can be life altering for many.  Any time there is numbness, it can be a sign of possible nerve damage and should be taken seriously.  Once a nerve becomes permanently damaged, it is irreversible and normal function is gone forever.

Numbness in the thigh is a condition called Meralgia Paresthetica.  Meralgia Paresthetica can be a painful condition for those who suffer from it for a prolonged period of time.  Most people can bear pain or numbness for a short time period but when a condition becomes chronic, it can become quite bothersome.

Last week, a consultation came in and told me of his meralgia paresthetica and how much pain he had been in.  He also described the numbness in his upper leg and thigh.  He was very concerned because he hadn’t been able to find help.

In Arkansas, I am very well known for my natural and non-invasive treatment successes for people who suffer from chronic and debilitating neck and low back pain, failed low back and neck surgery syndrome, peripheral neuropathy (tingling, burning, or numbness of the hands and feet), loss of balance, fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis, and sciatica.

All of these conditions have one thing in common:  Nerves.  Continue reading “Is There a Cure for Meralgia Paresthetica?”

Laser Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome surgery is on the rise.  In fact, it’s big business.  The only problem is that patient after patient has come to me for treatment after they had failed surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome.

Why does carpal tunnel surgery fail so often?  I believe that there are several reasons.  These are the topics that will be discussed in this article.  I will also discuss part of my highly successful natural and non-invasive treatment methods for people who suffer from carpal tunnel syndrome and other forms of radiculopathy or nerve pain.

Is the Nerve Conduction Velocity Test Accurate for Detecting Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain

Occasionally, I will have someone come to me with symptoms of classical trigeminal neuralgia.  I’ve been in practice for a long time so through the years, it has been enough people that I thought I would write an article about this painful condition called “trigeminal neuralgia”.

In fact, I currently have a patient who has suffered with trigeminal neuralgia for years.  This patient has traveled a great distance to see me because he felt that I could help him when no one else has been able to do so. Continue reading “Trigeminal Neuralgia and Facial Pain”

Why is my Big Toe Numb?

In this article, I’m going to talk about why people have numbness or pain in their big toe (and sometimes the 2nd and 3rd toes).  Big toe pain is a common finding both in patients who have a history of low back pain and/or previous low back surgery.

I also treat a lot of patients that have big toe numbness who haven’t had a failed low back surgery and don’t have low back pain at all.  It’s hard to understand how you could have a form of pain in your big toe and not have Continue reading “Why is my Big Toe Numb?”

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy is a condition that many people suffer from especially as they age and body systems begin deteriorating at a faster rate.

The hard fact to accept is that we are all aging and that we are dying from the day that we are born. However, just chalking up the loss of balance, tingling, burning and numbness to “old age” is unacceptable in my book. Continue reading “What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy”

What Causes Sciatica or Leg Pain?

Through the last 15 plus years, many patients have come through my program for the treatment of sciatica or “leg pain”.  Sciatica is the most common form of “radiculopathy” (nerve pain) in the legs.

Still yet, many people don’t know what causes this life altering painful condition.  In this article, I’m going to discuss different symptoms and causes of sciatic pain and also possible treatment options.
