black neurotherapy socks
Though treatment options have been limited throughout history, Neck & Back has had much success treating the harmful nerve damage disorder known as neuropathy. For our patients undergoing treatment, we want to explore all the options that could bring you more comfort. Read below to learn about the potential benefits of neuropathy therapy socks.

Neuropathy Therapy Socks: How Do They Work?

First, what is neuropathy? Neuropathy is a condition that means your peripheral nerves have been damaged or aren’t functioning correctly. This condition can be inherited at birth, or developed later in life due to a number of potential causes.   Symptoms include:
  • loss of sensitivity to pain and temperatures
  • greater risk of infection
  • pain
  • numbness
  • muscle weakness
  • cramping
What are neuropathy therapy socks? The idea behind neuropathy therapy socks is pretty simple — they are therapeutic, soft-stretch, non-binding socks that can help neuropathy patients walk without pain and swelling. How do neuropathy therapy socks work? Neuropathy therapy socks will cover your ankles and up to your calves. These socks are made of ceramic nano-particles and feature an extra-wide ankle to make sure restriction isn’t an issue. By applying less pressure than a normal sock on your foot and ankle, neuropathy therapy socks allow for more circulation and blood flow.

Neuropathy Treatment at Neck & Back Medical Center

We hope you explore neuropathy therapy socks as a way to make daily activities more comfortable, but we know socks are no substitute for the tried-and-true treatment methods at our clinic. For long-term, permanent recovery, Neck & Back uses the following treatment methods:
  • Electro analgesia: attaches electrodes to affected areas to override neuropathic pain signals
  • Laser Therapy: improves blood function, strengthen blood vessels, and stimulate nerves
The team at Neck & Back is committed to helping each patient reach their optimal level of comfort and quality of life. Seek treatment today in Laguna Hills, California, by scheduling your complimentary consultation at our clinic.
New Year Resolution chalkboard
Every year, people make New Year’s resolutions. These can vary from person to person, and they can be something tiny (like flossing every day) or something life-changing (like losing a significant amount of weight). For 2017, some of the most popular New Year’s resolutions include:
  • healthier lifestyles
  • better organization
  • picking up new hobbies
  • saving money
No matter your what your resolutions are, the hardest part is sticking with them. Our goal is always to help our patients achieve their highest quality of life, and positive changes can make that goal much more attainable. Read below for some tips to help you stick with your New Year’s resolutions from the team at Neck & Back Medical Center.

Stick With Your Resolutions in Laguna Hills, California

Setting your sights on personal goals and positive changes in the New Year is a great first step. The next step is seeing these resolutions through. Some of the following tips and tricks may help reinforce your dedication to your resolutions, and make for a truly wonderful 2017.
  1. Write your resolutions down: Not that you would forget, but writing down your resolutions and leaving them in a place you’ll see them every day (like your refrigerator, or on your desk at work) can be a simple way to make sure you stay focused on your goals.
  2. Start small: Big dreams are good, but if your New Year’s resolutions are too lofty, you’ll be more likely to throw in the towel. Work your way up from goals that are easier to accomplish while chipping away at long-term resolutions over the course of the year.
  3. Tell someone: Preferably a friend or family member who can help you stay accountable. You might even pair up with someone who has a similar resolution so you can keep each other honest.
  4. Incentivize achievement: Work off a rewards system — like treating yourself to your favorite latte if you get up early to make it to the gym before work, or getting one new item you love for your house every time you finish organizing a room.
  5. Give yourself a break: If your goal is to make healthy eating choices, choose one day a week you’ll let yourself splurge. If you want to stop using your credit cards, decide in advance what emergencies would warrant the use of plastic.
Do any of these ideas sound like they would work to help keep you on track with your New Year’s resolutions? Let us know how we can help. The team at Neck & Back Medical Center is always available to help you maximize your health, quality of life and happiness.
