Neighborhood Neuropathy Center uses an advanced program for treating the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Using a distinct combination of modalities helps create the most effective treatment available for the relief of your peripheral neuropathy pain and discomfort.
We can't think of a better way to explain it, than to show you:
If you’ve come to our website, you know we are Reno’s only dedicated peripheral neuropathy care center.
You may have come here because you have diabetes related peripheral neuropathy (DPN) or have had chemotherapy, which is another cause of neuropathy.
If neither of these apply, you may have been told that you have idiopathic peripheral neuropathy (IPN) which means no one can identify the cause. DON’T DESPAIR. There are some 50 or so drugs that cause neuropathy. Many people find that stopping the drug eliminates all neuropathy symptoms. Of course, you should consult with your healthcare provider before stopping any drug. Sometimes it has been years since you took one of these drugs; perhaps you don’t even remember the name of the drug. Our team of doctors, nurses and therapists might be able to identify the cause of your idiopathic peripheral neuropathy. Give us a call to schedule a visit to our clinic. We specialize in diagnosing and treating the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy.
Some of the drugs that have been identified as causing IPN are:
Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder that affects the peripheral nerves (feet/hands) and may cause permanent nerve damage.
In diabetic peripheral neuropathy, the myelin sheath, or the protective covering of the nerves, is damaged, which may result in numbness or tingling, muscle weakness, fatigue, and other symptoms. The effects of neuropathy can worsen over time, leading to significant activity limitations and a decreased quality of life. Approximately 70 percent of diabetic patients will progress to wheelchair dependence if not treated.
"As a physical therapist treating patients with peripheral neuropathy, I am excited to have a safe and effective treatment option to offer my patients who are interested in drug or surgery free solutions and regaining their quality of life," said Jenny Capel PT, Neighborhood Neuropathy Center. “Many patients simply want to be able to drive again”.

Nerve damage can occur in different parts of your body. The most common type of nerve damage occurs in your hands and feet. Doctors call this Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN). If you answer yes to any of these questions, you may have nerve damage due to diabetes. DO NOT IGNORE YOUR PAIN! Give Neighborhood Neuropathy Centers a call to see how we can help.
A recent article in Pain Medicine News cited that evidence was lacking for current pharmacologic treatment of neuropathic pain. In short, drugs don't work.
The article specifically noted "successful management of neuropathic pain remains elusive, despite the variety of pharmacologic classes prescribed to treat it, new research suggests. Furthermore, the actual evidence-supporting drugs used on an everyday basis is remarkably deficient."
