Neuropathy: What Is It
Peripheral Neuropathy affects over 17 million people in the United States. Peripheral Neuropathy literally translates to abnormal nerves away from the center of the body. Peripheral Neuropathy can affect the motor, sensory and/or autonomic nerves. When the motor nerves are involved, movement will be inhibited, creating weakness or cramping and possibly balance issues. Neuropathy in the sensory nerves will often cause tingling, numbness or burning in the hands or feet. While the autonomic nerves control the part of the body that we do not control, such as circulation, digestion, and heart rate. In dealing with Neuropathy, any one of these types of nerves could be affected, or a combination of all three.

Dr. Michael Veselak has had the opportunity to evaluate and treat thousands of patients from Ventura County suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy. In doing so, Dr. Veselak has found a common thread throughout all neuropathy cases. The common thread is there is always an underlying metabolic condition that adversely affects the nerves, resulting in poor communication in the wiring from the brain to the hands and/or feet. Once this underlying cause is discovered, patients experience much greater improvement in their Neuropathy pain and faster results!
At Camarillo Functional Health, Dr. Michael Veselak approaches Neuropathy like no other clinic in Westlake Village, Thousand Oaks, and Ventura County. Dr. Veselak utilizes four specific therapies in treating Peripheral Neuropathy. The first is the Hako-Med, a type of micro-current therapy to improve the ability of the large diameter afferent fibers to communicate with the brain. The second therapy is Spinal Decompression, which has allowed Dr. Veselak to safely and effectively take pressure off of the spinal nerves and increase disc height. The third is Cold Laser Therapy, which increases the cells ability to regenerate and heal by increasing ATP production. The fourth is infra red therapy which enhances circulation to the affected extremity.
By supporting the patient structurally, orthopedically, neurologically and metabolically , Dr. Veselak has had remarkable success with patients suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy. Our goal at Camarillo Functional Health is to change lives by improving our patients health so they can enjoy the aspects of life they have been missing.
