What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy refers to dysfunction or damage to the peripheral nerves, which are the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord. Unlike spinal cord injuries that can cause widespread paralysis and loss of function, peripheral neuropathy typically affects the extremities—most commonly the feet and hands. 

This condition can result in a variety of symptoms, including numbness, pain, tingling and weakness, significantly impacting an individual’s quality of life.

Causes and Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy can show up as a result of a number of reasons. Two of the most common are diabetes and chemotherapy. 

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is particularly prevalent, affecting 60-70% of individuals with diabetes due to high blood sugar levels damaging the nerves over time. 

Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy is an added unfortunate result from the toxic effects of chemotherapy drugs on the peripheral nerves. 

How NEUBIE Therapy Works to Treat Peripheral Neuropathy

NEUBIE therapy uses advanced, direct current electrical stimulation to target specific neuromuscular points. Often after just one session, the NEUBIE can positively enhance neural signaling and muscle function in patients with neuropathy. 

Here’s how NEUBIE therapy is particularly effective in treating peripheral neuropathy:

1. Reduces Neuropathic Pain

NEUBIE therapy significantly decreases neuropathic pain, providing relief to patients who often suffer from chronic discomfort. By modulating the electrical signals in the nerves, NEUBIE helps to desensitize pain pathways, resulting in less pain and more comfort.

2. Improves Sensory Perception

Patients undergoing NEUBIE therapy often experience improvements in their ability to perceive sensory stimuli. This is particularly important for those with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN), who may suffer from numbness and reduced sensitivity in their extremities.

3. Enhances Nerve Function

NEUBIE therapy promotes better nerve function by improving nerve conduction velocity and distal latency. This means that electrical impulses travel more efficiently through the nerves, enhancing overall muscular function and coordination.

Peripheral Neuropathy and NEUBIE Therapy Case Studies

Recent studies have shown the significant benefits of NEUBIE therapy for patients with peripheral neuropathy. 

For instance, a NEUBIE scientific study conducted across 13 physical therapy sites with 150 participants revealed that NEUBIE therapy led to substantial improvements in neuropathy severity, sensory perception, vibration sensation time and pain levels compared to traditional TENS e-stim therapy.

Key Findings of NEUBIE Research:

  • Neuropathy Severity: Significant reduction in neuropathy severity (p<0.001).
  • Sensory Perception: Improved ability to discriminate between two points on the skin (p<0.001).
  • Vibration Sensation Time: Increased vibration sensation time (p=0.022).
  • Pain Reduction: Significant decrease in reported pain levels (p=0.009).
  • Nerve Function: Enhanced nerve conduction velocity and distal latency.
