Physical Therapy: Anodyne Therapy
Anodyne therapy is an FDA-approved therapy for patients with diabetes who have peripheral neuropathy. The system uses infrared photo energy to decrease pain and increase circulation in affected extremities. This technique is noninvasive and easy to apply.
Anodyne has been clinically proved to increase nitric oxide levels in the blood, which is very important for people with diabetes, who often have low levels of nitric oxide in their systems. Low levels of nitric oxide in people with diabetes can lead to poor circulation, pain and loss of sensation in the extremities. People with these symptoms are at risk for diabetic ulcers and falls resulting in injuries because of decreased strength and coordination.
With the use of anodyne therapy and a comprehensive treatment plan of strengthening, conditioning and wound care management, blood circulation increases and nerve function improves. As a result, people with diabetes who have peripheral neuropathy experience improved functional mobility, increased sensation and increased independence in activities of daily living. This means improving patients' quality of life.
Additionally, anodyne therapy is effective in treating symptoms from the following:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome.
- Wound care management.
- Edema management.
- Myofascial pain.
