Over a four year period a group of 138,420 neuropathy sufferers were observed by researchers to suffer an 800% increase in pain medication use, a 500% increase in leg and foot ulcers and a 300% increase in assistance needed to walk and climb stairs in the form of canes, walkers and wheelchairs.

NON-SURGICAL, NO-DRUG NEUROPATHY BREAKTHROUGH TREATMENT:Harrisonburg, VA—The most common method doctors will recommend t...


Harrisonburg, VA—The most common method doctors will recommend to treat neuropathy is with prescription drugs that may temporarily reduce symptoms. These drugs have names such as Gabapentin/Neurotin, Lyrica, and Cymbalta and are primarily antidepressant or anti-seizure drugs. These drugs may cause discomfort and have a variety of harmful side effects.

Neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves often causing weakness, discomfort, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet which causes the nerves to begin to degenerate due to lack of nutrient flow.

As the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased they shrivel up which causes the nerves to not get the nutrients to continue to survive. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause balance problems, discomfort, numbness, tingling, burning, and many additional symptoms.

The main problem is that doctors tell patients to just live with the problem or try the drugs which individuals don’t like taking because they may cause discomfort.

There is now a facility right here in Harrisonburg that offers hope without taking those endless drugs with serious side effects.

In order to effectively treat neuropathy three factors must be determined.

1) What is the underlying cause?
2) How Much Nerve Damage Has Been Sustained. NOTE: Once 85% nerve loss has been sustained, there is likely nothing that we can do.
3) How much treatment will be required?

The treatment we provide has three main goals:

1) Increase blood flow
2) Stimulate small fiber nerves
3) Decrease brain-based discomfort

One treatment to increase blood flow utilizes a specialized Laser Therapy (there is no discomfort or side-effects and it's FDA cleared) using this advanced powerful technology. This technology was originally developed by NASA to assist in increasing blood flow.

Laser Therapy is like watering a plant. The light therapy will allow the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. It’s like adding water to a plant and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.

Laser is only one of the many therapies which might be included in a comprehensive care plan. Individual history and condition dictate a prescription for care.

PEMFT (Pulse Electromagnetic Frequency Therapy) is a reparative technique that uses directed pulsed magnetic fields through injured tissues stimulating repair at the cellular level. It is FDA approved an has more than 10,000 researched papers reviewing it’s success rate.

UPDATE: Numerous patients graduate from care with little to no discomfort from neuropathy. They can sleep without discomfort, walk further, enjoy their time with grandkids and even go on vacations without neuropathy discomfort.

Recovery is possible. Many have even spoken with their doctors and either reduced or completely eliminated their medications.

The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation.

As long as at least 85% nerve damage has not been sustained there is hope!

Dr. Steven Riggleman, DC will do a neuropathy severity examination to determine the extent of the nerve damage for only $47 (normally $250). This neuropathy severity examination will consist of a detailed history review & sensory evaluation, peripheral vascular testing, and a detailed analysis of the findings.

FOODS THAT AGGRAVATE PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHYPeripheral neuropathy is a condition in which nerve damage triggers a burning,...


Peripheral neuropathy is a condition in which nerve damage triggers a burning, tingling or numb sensation in your hands and feet. The specific cause can be difficult to pinpoint, but contributing factors include vitamin deficiencies, traumatic injuries, diabetes, alcoholism, infections, kidney disease, tumors and exposure to poisons. Treatment may include managing underlying causes, physical therapy, supplements and dietary changes. For best results, seek guidance from your functional medicine doctor or practitioner.


Foods affect people with neuropathy differently. If you have a gluten allergy, which is also known as celiac disease, consuming gluten can trigger and worsen your symptoms. Fifty percent of adults with celiac disease experience no gastrointestinal symptoms, according to "Peripheral Neuropathy: When the Numbness, Weakness, and Pain Won't Stop" by Norman Latov and Lisa M. Shulman. In these cases, tingling and numbness may be your only notable symptoms. Gluten is a storage protein found in wheat, barley and rye. Common sources include most breads, cereals, pasta, crackers, cookies, cakes, pastries and all foods containing white, wheat, cake or baking flour. Suitable alternatives include rice, potatoes and oatmeal, corn and rice-based cereals and breads clearly labeled "gluten-free."


Refined grains are high-glycemic, meaning they have a dramatic impact on your blood sugar. According to the Neuropathy Association, glycemic control is the No. 1 strategy for preventing the progression of neuropathy associated with diabetes, which is one of the most common causes. To improve the glycemic impact of your diet, replace refined grains and products -- including white and wheat bread, enriched pasta, white and instant rice, low-fiber cereals and processed snack foods, such as pretzels, potato chips and crackers -- with whole grains. Nutritious options include oats, barley, brown rice, quinoa and air-popped popcorn.


Added sugars, such as cane sugar, corn syrup and honey, add sweet flavor, but few nutrients, to foods. Similar to refined grains, they are high-glycemic and may interfere with blood sugar control. In addition, diets rich in added sugars are associated with poor nutrient intake. To guard against nutrient deficiencies, which can lead to neuropathy symptoms, choose nutritious foods, such as fruits, vegetables and whole grains, instead of sugary fare most often. Common sources of added sugars include regular soft drinks, candy, milk chocolate, sugary cereals, pancake syrup, jellies, frozen desserts and commercially baked cakes, cookies, pastries and pies.


Saturated fat is a fat form prevalent in fatty meats and dairy products that can cause inflammation and an increased risk for type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease. To lower your risk for neuropathy the University of Virginia Health System recommends a nutritious diet low in saturated fat. Top sources of saturated fat include organ meats, beef, lamb, pork, dark-meat poultry, fried foods, butter, whole milk, heavy cream and full-fat ice cream and cheeses. For enhanced wellness, replace fatty protein sources with lean alternatives, such as fish, soy and lentils, and eat moderate amounts of healthy fat sources, such as nuts, seeds and vegetable oils.
