Anodyne Therapy

Comments (0)

Diabetic neuropathies are neuropathic disorders that are associated with diabetes mellitus. These conditions are thought to result from diabetic microvascular injury involving small blood vessels that supply nerves.

Neuropathy can present itself in a number of different ways including; numbness, pain, loss of feeling, weak muscles. These symptoms can lead to secondary problems including difficulty with walking, balance and activities of daily living.

Anodyne Therapy is a treatment specifically for peripheral neuropathy. It works by relieving pain and/or increasing circulation in the area where the patient is experiencing pain. The only contraindications are for pregnancy and active malignancy, according to the company.

How it Works

The Anodyne Therapy System uses monochromatic infrared energy (MIRE) to release nitric oxide from the patient’s red blood cells.

Anodyne Therapy utilizes the healing power of infrared light to stimulate increased nerve function and blood flow to decrease pain and improve feeling

This form of treatment is usually given in addition to physical therapy

Anodyne Therapy is completely painless

The program usually involves 10-24 therapy sessions and may include:

Stretching and strengthening exercises

Dynamic and static balance exercises

Massage and the use of other therapeutic modalities for pain

Sensory integrative techniques
