Neuropathy is a medical term referring to disorders of the nerves of the peripheral nervous system encephalopathy (specifically excluding and myelopathy be considered a neuropathy.

, which pertain to the neurons central nervous system .) It is defined as deranged function and structure of peripheral motor, sensory, and autonomic , involving either the entire neuron or selected levels. According to some sources, a disorder of the cranial nerves can

Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is the term for damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system , which may be caused either by diseases of the nerve or from the side-effects systemic illness. Peripheral neuropathies vary in their presentation and origin, and may affect the nerve or the neuromuscular junction . of

Diabetic neuropathies

Diabetic neuropathies are neuropathic disorders that are associated with microvascular injury diabetes mellitus involving small . These conditions are thought to result from diabetic blood vessels that supply nerves ( vasa nervorum diabetic neuropathy include ). Relatively common conditions which may be associated with third nerve palsy ; mononeuropathy ; mononeuropathy multiplex; diabetic amyotrophy autonomic ; a painful polyneuropathy; neuropathy; and thoracoabdominal neuropathy.

Autonomic Neuropathy

Which Approaches to Treatment Relieve Pain?

  Drug therapy? No – pain killers and anti-depressants mask pain Therapeutic Laser? YES!

The Prospect of Using Laser Therapy Means…

    There is a way to build new capillaries and nerve endings There is a non-invasive safe treatment for neuropathy with no negative side effects You can even add strength and flexibility to the areas treated You can be pain free again!

Here’s What The Laser Looks Like

  The Avicenna laser is the strongest approved by the FDA. It is the safest type of diverging beam with continuous feed light.

 Its beam of light is completely harmless and simply feels warm to the touch.

How Does the Laser Work?


   Within the body the photochemical process nourishes the cells Damaged cells are nourished by the beam of light from the laser The laser allows cell to naturally replace themselves with lasting, permanent new fully functional cells

How Does the Laser Work?


    Photons are captured by mitochondria, or “battery packs” of cells There are about 200 mitochondria in each cell They are immediately transformed by the infrared photons of the laser in to ATP (adenosine triphosphate), the energy currents of the body With that new energy the damaged cells are able to produce collagen, elastin, and proteins at the same rate as healthy cells and essentially repair themselves Peripheral neuropathy-cellular

Advanced Training in Neuropathy

   I have taken advanced training in laser therapy and additional trainings specific to neuropathy I use proprietary protocols to treat neuropathy so as not to cause a flair up or irritation to sensitive areas It is not just applying the laser that improves your condition, it is HOW I apply the laser

Neuropathy is Difficult to Manage

   Neuropathy is probably THE most difficult case to manage Which is why you are all here looking for answers today If we follow the proper protocols and create an optimum environment for healing

results can be life changing!

Laser therapy can build new nerve endings and new capillary beds

THAT is how the results are achieved Patient Testimonial: Joan C.

Age: 74 Diagnosis: Neuropathy - Extreme pain (feet); Source: Letter to Avicenna CEO/Founder Dear Dr. Coren: I spoke to you by phone some months ago when Dr. Dorfman used your laser in the healing of my neuropathy. It has been a miracle.

Is laser therapy painful?

No 2. Are there negative side effects I should be aware of?

3. How soon will I see a decrease of symptoms?

No 4. Will I need recovery time?

Immediately after your first treatment No, there is no down time

Worst Case Scenario

    Not everyone will get 100% relief The worst case scenario is that you will see a 70-80% improvement in symptoms Each one of you has a unique case and will have unique path to healing But, sometimes the worst symptoms get the best relief

Lasers are


All Created Equal

     If you are thinking, “I’ll just shop around for the cheapest laser…” Beware! Not all practitioners have the same treatment protocols -my advanced training in protocols are specific to healing neuropathy Just applying a laser to a neuropathically impaired area can cause a serious flare up Our Class IV healing laser is the most powerful approved by the FDA It is the safest diverging beam and continuous feed laser with the greatest healing effect known
