Neuropathy Treatment in Gilbert, AZAccording to NIH, National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, an estimated 20 million people in the U.S. have some form of peripheral neuropathy, a condition of nerve disease or damage to the peripheral nervous system — the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and every other part of the body.

Damage to your peripheral nerves often causes weakness, numbness, tingling, pain, and loss of feeling in the hands, arms, feet and legs. Severe symptoms may include burning or stabbing pain (especially at night), muscle wasting, and paralysis. It can also affect other areas of your body, including nerve problems in every organ system (i.e., digestive tract, heart and sex organs).

Peripheral neuropathy conditions can be caused by diabetes, HIV, medication toxicity, excessive use of statins for high cholesteral, heart and blood pressure medications, chemotherapy, exposure to environmental or industrial toxins (i.e., lead, mercury, arsenic, insecticides, solvents), heavy alcohol consumption, and sports and injury related neuropathy. Many chronic neuropathies worsen over time.

  • Common in people suffering from diabetes
  • Many patients are on pain killers, but get no relief.
  • Numbness, tingling and the feeling of walking on nails is common.
  • Leg cramping is common.
  • Many patients have problems sleeping.
  • Many patients have low sensitivity on soles of feet.
  • There are many treatments, but many do not find them effective.

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

The earliest symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet in the classic “sock and glove” distribution. The pain is often described as burning, shooting, electric-shock like, throbbing, or aching. Some people describe an altered sensation when picking up objects, as if their fingers are “made of plastic,” or feelings of their hands and feet falling asleep.

The patient may complain of their feet throbbing or cramping at night or of stumbling when they try to walk. The symptoms are generally symmetric (occur on both sides of the body), although they may be more severe on one side. If the neuropathy is severe, touching the affected extremity can feel like an open wound is being touched. In the most severe cases, severe pain and dysfunction of the nerves can result in difficulty walking and disability.

Why Accelerate GF Effectively Treats Peripheral Neuropathy

Accelerate GF is a plasma concentrate that contains high concentrations of activated platelets that release a superdose of growth factors. One of the growth factors released is the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), which can repair damaged nerve tissue. Other growth factors present include platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), platelet factor interleukin (IL), platelet- derived angiogenesis factor (PDAF), insulin-like growth factor (IGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and epidermal growth factor (EGF). These platelets and growth factors are also super recruiters of blood-borne stem cells. Collectively, this high concentration of platelets, growth factors and pluripotent stem cells promote growth of specific types of cells that repair nerve tissue and other tissue damage, and stimulate accelerated development of new blood vessels.

What Does Accelerate GF Treatment Entail?

This protocol has been developed to give maximum benefit to the patient within a short time. The basic protocol is 4 treatments, the purpose of which is to enhance the function of damaged nerve tissue to its maximal level.

  • Patient’s blood is drawn into a collection tube and centrifuged to generate plasma concentrate
  • Plasma concentrate is extracted from tube into a syringe pre-loaded with Plasma Solutions’ proprietary activation/aggregation solution
  • Simple injection technique using L4 and L5 dematomes for outstanding results

A dermatome is the area of sensory nerves near the skin that are supplied by a specific spinal nerve root. The L4 and L5 dermatomes run straight through the lower extremities to the soles of the feet, and are the dermatomes which the patient feels.

  • Intra-muscular injections in the lower extremities
  • No need for imaging
  • Easy-to-follow protocol (treatment can be performed within 30 minutes)
  • Minimal to no pain

What is Acellerate GF?

Acellerate GF™ is an injectable concentrate of platelets and growth factors which recruit stem cells, along with proteins and fibrinogen in high concentrations for the effective treatment of peripheral neuropathy. It is also useful in the treatment of conditions and injuries in soft tissues, tendons, ligaments, muscles, bones and joints, and chronic non-healing wounds.

Using a proprietary activation/ aggregator solution, Acellerate GF:

  • Promotes rapid healing with minimal to no pain
  • Harmless to the patient and uses patient’s own blood and natural substances found in the bloodstream
  • Stimulates accelerated tissue repair and regeneration, without risk of allergic reaction, disease transmission or infection

Acellerate GF can be used as a complete standalone therapy or as a highly effective complement to stem cell treatments.
