Neuropathy Treatment & Pain Relief Arkansas
Through many years of hard work, innovation and dedication, Dr. Currie has developed his own neuropathy treatment protocol that actually works for most of his patients. This is a great relief for so many because most of Dr. Currie’s patients have been told that there was nothing that could be done for them other than take prescription medications for the rest of their lives. Drugs that have serious side effects. Most of Dr. Currie’s patients are tired of and fed up with taking the drugs that don’t help them feel better and damage their vital organs. There is a better way. Dr. Currie has found it and you deserve the opportunity to learn more about what could possibly be done to relieve your debilitating neuropathy pain/burning/tingling/numbness.
Neuropathy Signs & symptoms may include*:
- Burning pain
- Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch, even light touch
- Lack of coordination
- Muscle weakness or paralysis if motor nerves are affected
- Bowel or bladder problems if autonomic nerves are affected
Damage to or loss of small nerve fibers results in Pain, Burning, Tingling, and/or Numbness. These symptoms typically affect the feet, legs, and hands starting at the tips then moving upwards.
NOTE: Small Fiber Neuropathy is often mistaken for Plantar Fascilitis, Vascular Insufficiency, or Degenerative Lumbosacral Spine disease.
*Individual symptoms and results may vary.

More About Neuropathy
The Peripheral Nervous System is made up of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord to all parts of the body. Peripheral Nerves can be classified according to size, which correlates with the degree of Myelination or fatty covering that facilitates signal transmission along the nerve.
- Large nerve fibers are heavily Myelinated and control muscle strength, vibration, and touch sensation.
- Small nerve fibers are usually affected more than large nerve fibers.
Peripheral Neuropathy is the term used to describe disorders of the peripheral nerves. Neuropathy also means disease or abnormality of the nervous system that can include any damage to the nervous system. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Herniated Discs, and Strokes are all insults to the nervous system, all with different symptoms. Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects all nerves of the body from the brain, eyes, and small nerves of the heart and digestive system, to the nerves in the hands and feet causing Diabetic Neuropathy. Statin (Cholesterol Drugs) and Chemo Therapy also cause Peripheral Neuropathy. SENSORY SYMPTOMS: Most commonly, peripheral neuropathy may start in the longest nerves — the ones that reach to your toes. Specific symptoms vary, depending on which types of nerves are affected.
Nerves Do NOT Have a Direct Blood Supply
Unlike most other tissues in the body nerve cells do not have an external blood supply. The blood vessels that are responsible for feeding the nerves are located within the nerves themselves. Therefore, irritated or injured nerves actually interrupt their own oxygen and nutrient supply. Oxygen-starved nerves are often atrophied and retracted. The distance between the nerve cells grows as the nerve cells shrink and retract making it harder for nerve signals to jump from one nerve cell to another. This leads directly to altered / disrupted nerve sensations such as Numbness, Tingling, Burning and Sharp Pain.
Dr. Currie has assembled a rock solid line-up of therapies that takes the pressure off of and improves the blood and oxygen supply to the nerves. By bringing oxygen to the nerves, it helps stimulate them to perform again. Dr. Currie also works with his patients through nutritional protocols to help them naturally instead of using medications.
Frequently Asked Neuropathy Questions
Why have my doctors told me that there is nothing that can be done to help my neuropathy?
Many doctors prescribe anti-seizure medications for patients that just masks or dulls symptoms and suffering. So how does Dr. Currie help people with a condition that supposedly can’t be helped? Research has shown that people over the age of 65 years old in general have arthritis in their spine. It is a condition called degenerative disc disease.
Basically, the soft fluid filled cushions between the bones in the spine start drying up over time. The nerves that go into the arms and legs come out of small holes on the side of the spine. When the space between the bones is decreased by the dried up cushion, the nerves can get compressed or “pinched.” When this happens, the nerve can go through a breakdown process which over time can lead to permanent nerve damage.
Before permanent nerve damage sets in, people will usually go through a process of having neuropathy symptoms. The diagnosis is called “Compressive Radicular Neuropathy.” Dr. Currie works to create hydration of the soft, delicate tissue fluid cushions. In creating that hydration and space, pressure can be released off of the nerves which in turn gives many of Dr. Currie’s patients the relief they were seeking.
Dr. Currie recognizes that the hands and or feet are also heavily involved so every single neuropathy patient also receives neuropathy treatments in their hands/feet or both if necessary.
My doctors told me that my neuropathy is from my diabetes or from some other health condition. Is there a chance that Dr. Currie could help me considering what I have been told?
Interestingly, in the early years of Dr. Currie’s practice, he primarily focused on treating severe neck and back pain patients. Dr. Currie’s patients started coming to him with one question: “Dr. Currie, since you have been treating my spine, my neuropathy has been getting better. What are you doing to treat my Diabetes?”
That is when Dr. Currie began to realize that he was helping people who had been told that they had different forms of neuropathy. They were being told that their neuropathy was being caused by other problems when in reality, their problems were stemming from plain old simple arthritic degeneration of their spine putting pressure on their nerves.
As years went by, Dr. Currie learned about other natural and non-invasive treatments that he added to his treatment protocol for neuropathy sufferers.
Another important point that Dr. Currie always emphasizes when talking about his neuropathy treatments is that he treats many patients who don’t have back or neck pain who have neuropathy. Dr. Currie leaves no stone unturned when it comes to trying to find the source of the neuropathy and then make changes that can help his patients. He has also had success in treating neuropathy patients whose neuropathy was caused by chemotherapy.
Do Dr. Currie’s neuropathy treatments hurt?
No! Patients love coming to Dr. Currie’s clinic for their care. The LiteCure Deep Tissue Laser is the patient’s favorite. The laser treatment area stays full because patients can’t wait to get their Deep Tissue Laser Therapy.
