RWJ Rahway Rehabilitation Services is pleased to offer a non invasive treatment for peripheral neuropathy, a feeling of burning, numbness, pain or tingling in the hands and feet. Peripheral neuropathy can be a consequence of chemo therapy or diabetes, but it can be of unknown origin.

Our peripheral neuropathy treatment involves electrical stimulation in targeted areas to help improve blood flow and advance healing of damaged nerves. The electronic impulses stimulate circulation, which in turn increases the flow of healing oxygen to damaged nerves. The treatment is administered for a minimum of 12 treatments by a Physical or Occupational therapist, who also works with patients on improving balance, and strength. To read patient experiences with MicroVas click here.

A prescription for the treatment is required. Potential MicroVas patients may need additional assessment before treatment. To make an appointment for peripheral neuropathy treatment, call 732.499.6012.

A vital part of the rehabilitation process, physical therapy promotes the ability to move, reduces pain, restores function and prevents disability.
