Numbness Q & A
What are the results of numbness in the feet or hands?

Many neuropathy sufferers ask why numbness is necessarily such a bad thing since it prevents a lot of pain. However, numbness increases your risk of serious injury. 

Numbness means that you don't have enough sensation to alert you to injury. You could develop burns, cuts, or even broken bones without feeling a thing. 

If you're unaware of an injury like a serious open wound on the bottom of your foot, you'll keep using the foot as normal. This leads to constant aggravation of the injury, infection, and eventually possible loss of the foot. Ignoring numbness is very dangerous for your overall health. It’s not worth the risk, especially when there are highly advanced treatments available.

What other symptoms come with numbness?

If you have neuropathy, nerve pain usually accompanies numbness. Even if your feet are almost totally numb most of the time, you're still likely to experience breakthrough nerve pain sometimes. 

When you have neuropathy, you're also more likely to have problems with balance, muscle weakness, and a burning sensation in your hands and feet.

Will numbness resolve on its own?

No, numbness won't go away on its own. The numbness is an indicator that your nerves are dying. Our treatment program can help solve this problem through innovative medical technologies.
