Advanced treatment for peripheral neuropathy is now available. The non invasive treatment involves electrical stimulation to help improve blood flow and advance healing of damaged nerves caused by diabetes, chemo therapy or other conditions. MicroVas is vascular treatment device that delivers electrical stimulation to targeted areas. 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 function, balance, and strength.

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