When you had originally presented to the office,you presented with chronic numbness, tingling, burning,the hands and the feet. It limitedyour ability to walk, limited your ability to sleep, your ability to relax. We've completeda course of treatment here with the Davis neuropathy program, how have you done withthe treatment and how are you feeling today? I feel wonderful. I have to tell you thatthe treatment, I was on both programs. Before I came in, all that I knew that I had wasperipheral neuropathy after your exam, after you examined me. We found out that I had alsospinal stenosismy spine. I have followed your program, both of your programs, the DRSprogram and the peripheral neuropathy program,
and I am doing beautifully. I can now walkwithout assistance which I was having to hold my husband's hand or somebody's hand whenI was shopping or doing anything. I could not ive by myself. I feel like a whole personnow. Well congratulations on your results and we're very proud to have you here as apatient. What else would you like to have me tell you? If you have another questionI could certainly, I would like to tell a little bit about your people that you haveworking for you. They are wonderful, young, professional people. I don't know what kindof a program you put them on, but I love each and every one of them. They're an asset toyour office. Well thank you so much for the
kind words and we look forward to seeing youagain soon. You're welcome.
Here at Richardson Podiatry Center, we seequite a few diabetics. People with diabetes have certain conditions that affect the healthof their feet. These conditions are peripheral neuropathy (where people lose feelingtheirfeet), decreased circulation, and also skin conditions such as fungus and ingrown toenails.The most troubling problem diabetics have with their feet is peripheral neuropathy.Approximately 2040% of people with diabetes will develop peripheral neuropathy over theirlifetime. What peripheral neuropathy will do is that, with the loss of feelingyourfeet, you cannot feel any type of injury to your foot. It's common for people with peripheralneuropathy for their feet to feel like blocks
of wood. They can step on any type of sharpobject; they can cut their feet and not know it. They might not see the problem until theysee redness and swelling and maybe even ainage coming from a wound. At that point, the infectionsare very hard to treat because, again, it's not only peripheral neuropathy caused fromdiabetes, they also usually have decreased circulation. When you have decreased circulation,your body cannot fight infections like a person without diabetes.
