Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition that affects millions of people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred to the nerves of the extremities.
Peripheral nerves originate in the spinal cord and flow out along lines in the body known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes damaged, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then radiate out to specific areas of the body.
This type of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.
Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
People develop peripheral neuropathy for many different reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, heavy alcohol use, or infection.

Relieving Pain the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy
Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, eradicating the suffering is generally top treatment priority.
Peripheral neuropathy leads to numbing of the hands and the feet. The symptoms include tingling and burning sensation. Medications have been, till date, the way to treat peripheral neuropathy. But drugs and medications have tremendous side-effects that give rise to other medical conditions over a period of time.
Untreated conditions can lead to muscle weakness and even paralysis. The condition starts with prickling sensation, develops into throbbing and jabbing pain and then finally leads to serious condition. If medications and surgical methods are not what you wish to put yourself through, try alternate treatment methods of peripheral neuropathy at our clinic at Caldwell, New Jersey.
Oxygen Ozone therapy is one of the most trusted methods used by Dr. Warren J. Bleiweiss for treating patients of peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Bleiweiss carries out detailed investigative procedures to understand the real cause of the condition. Some of the common causes include diabetes, tumors – malignant or benign, disorders in the bone marrow, disease of the kidney, liver, hypothyroidism, HIV and autoimmune diseases. Dr. Bleisweiss has been working with this pioneering technique and medical procedure for years now to heal and treat patients suffering from this medical condition successfully.
Ozone is the most active state of oxygen and is blessed with antimicrobial properties. In this therapy, when oxygen ozone is injected into the patient’s body, the ozone helps clear the arteries and veins thereby minimizing inflammation and improving blood circulation to the peripherals. It also strengthens the immune system of the body and helps calm the nerves. This is exactly why the oxygen ozone therapy is so effective for treating all types of peripheral vascular disease such as neuropathy. The ozone injection is administered under medical supervision where the gas is directly injected to the veins. The other process is where blood from the patient is drawn into a container, mixed with ozone and then injected back into the patient.
At our clinic in Caldwell, New Jersey, Dr. Bleiweiss studies the patient history and medical records to devise the most effective treatment for peripheral neuropathy. Since he is such an ardent advocate of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatment methods, every care is taken to ensure that the patients’ condition is treated holistically and side-effects-free.
