Treating Neuropathy and Nerve Pain in the Feet
Let me start with I'm a diabetic. I developedneuropathy, which basically you lose all sensation in the feet, but it's over a period of time.It was very painful. I would have sensations in my feet like I was standing on fire, walkingon glass. Last October it got so bad that I couldn't sleep at night. Then I met Bullard, because he's just a great physician. I wouldn't think twice, I'd recommendhim to anybody. Very compassionate, very thorough, I can't say enough about Bullard. He'sjust a great physician and I don't know if there's anything he couldn't do hecould probably move mountains if he wanted to!Glen, probably one of the biggest questions
people are asking you is what'd we do, what'shappened. Of course, you had a tremendous improvement in your pain and the tinglingand the numbness. Easiest explanation is, to tell everybody, that this big nerve here,which is on the inside part of your left foot, was getting strangled. There was a noose aroundit. What we did is we went in and loosened the noose, and that allows that nerve to beginto function and work like it's supposed to.Now, the sensation is coming back, it's something that's going to take time butI can feel more. My quality of life has greatly improved since I had the procedure done by Bullard. There's no other physician
that I would recommend.Glen, in the next couple weeks, what we're going to do is make sure that the swellingis improving, hopefully begin to transition you out of your compression socks, becauseI know it's kind of hot right now, and then look at making sure that your shoe gear andthings like that are where they're supposed to be, fitting you well, protecting your feetand stuff. Ok? Very good. Thank you, I appreciate it, havea good weekend! You do the same. Alright, see ya.

Nerve Pain Desensitization Techniques Ask Jo
Hey everybody, it's Jo. Today we'regonna talk about desenstizizensation. no. desensensation. no. Desensitizing something!A lot of times when people have a surgery or an injury, the nerves get all crazy andflared up. And so you have to desensitize the area and help the nerves grow back towhere their supposed to. So all you need is just a bunch of different things that havedifferent textures. And I have a towel, a cotton ball, a fork, and kind of a silk cloth.What you're gonna do is the area that feels weird, lots of times it's a numbness, tingly,burning kind of feeling, just take the first object you want to do, and lightly rub itover the area. It might feel weird, it might
fee really uncomfortable. It might actuallyhurt a little bit, even if it's just a little cotton ball. But rub it over that area forabout 30 seconds to a minute and then move on to the next texture. A plastic fork workswell, make sure you don't stab yourself, but just kind of rubbing it again lightly overthe area to help those nerves find their way back to where they're supposed to be. Andthen move on to the next one. Kind of a silk cloth. Just rubbing it on that area. You cankind of move the body part a little bit, too, while you're rubbing it. And maybe like acourse towel that's not as soft. And just rubbing it on that area. So about, you know,35 minutes a day, just desensitizing the
area, and there you have it. If you have anyquestions, leave them in the comments section. If you'd like to check out some other tutorials,go to AskJo Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Twitter. And remember,be safe. Have fun. And I hope you feel better soon.
