Neuropathy Therapy Miramar
Neuropathy means �disease or abnormality of the nervous system�, which is not a very helpful definition. We think of neuropathy as any damage to the nervous system. Carpal tunnel syndrome, herniated discs and strokes are all insults to different areas of the nervous system, all with different symptoms. Diabetes is a systemic disease that affects all nerves of the body from the brain, eyes and small nerves of the heart and digestive system, to the nerves in the hands feet and legs.
The peripheral nervous system is made up of the nerves that branch out of the spinal cord to all parts of the body.
Peripheral nerve cells have three main parts: cell body, axons, and dendrites (nerve/muscle junctions). Any part of the nerve can be affected, but damage to axons is most common. The axon transmits signals from nerve cell to nerve cell or muscle. Most axons are surrounded by a substance called myelin, which facilitates signal transmission.
|One tool that is commonly used in the medical industry, is Pulsed Infrared Light Therapy or Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT). It’s a newly developed medical device that’s very safe. This non-invasive therapy has been clinically proven to work wonders on peripheral neuropathy symptoms.|
There are two types of symptoms with peripheral neuropathy; negative and positive. Negative signs, which come first, are when damage to the nervous system, obviously, brings about LOSS of a particular function. For example; loss of reflexes, loss of strength, loss of sensation like numbness. But these are rarely detectable to the patient, because the brain makes up the difference in these losses.
Only after some time do the sick and damaged nerves develop the positive signs of neuropathy; tingling, burning, biting, stabbing, shooting pains. This too is a reaction of the brain and nervous system, unfortunately this overreaction tears apart the fiber of patients’ lives.
Each patient will describe their pain in their own individual language of ‘pain’. This can easily confuse a doctor not trained in the recognition and treatment of these patients. So the patient usually continues to suffer, going from doctor to doctor, to stronger and stronger doses of pills until they are either completely drugged up and out of it, or lost in their own world of suffering.
Some neuropathies come on suddenly, others over many years. Some people are affected only by a weakness in the arms and legs which leads to difficulty standing, walking, or getting out of a chair. The loss of sensation from the feet, ankles and toes contributes to patients not having a ‘good sense’ of where there feet are in space, touching the ground, and this causes them to fall very easily. These under-recognized sensory losses CAN ONLY be detected with the proper clinical exam.
Some patients will eventually become unable to walk at all. Others start with a tingling, pin pricking feeling that turns into deep, sharp, stabbing pains and burning electric shocks. These debilitating problems can also be at their worst at night while trying to get to sleep, because the PAIN never goes away. In fact, once started IT ONLY GETS WORSE!!
Currently, ordinary medicine has no cure for PN at this time. The extremely powerful drugs dispensed to patients do NOT TREAT the NERVE DAMAGE! They numb the brain to numb the pain. Most patients can not tolerate a drugged existence but feel they have NO OTHER OPTION against this horrifying pain.

I would like to take this opportunity to you how do I feel about the Neoropathy treatment I have been getting from you. This treatment has been amazing to me because in just 1 month, I have been recieving the treatment once a week; I have seen tremendous decrease in the numbness, burning, pins and needles feeling.
My most heartfelt appreciation for not only your skill but also your compassion, your willingness to discuss/explain everything about Neoropathy.
Your personal attention, kindness show by you and your staff, your knowledgeable, your warmth, your support and advice played a major role in my treatment. Before saying that you are an extraordinary doctor, I want to tell you that you are an extraordinary human being.
Saying thank you seem so insufficient but I can find no words that truly express my feeling appropriately. If every doctor strives to be as carrying and generous as you, the world would be filled with smiles and laughter instead of pain and sorrow. I am great full that my experiance was being so positive with yor care.
I also like to thanks your staff for showing so much care, respect, professionalism and concern.
I will recommend this place as one of the best in the area for treating Neuropathy.
Thanks so much Doctor Sagman

I visited Dr. Sagman for several visits in between June and December 2017. The Doctor treated me with very light chiropracticand physiotherapy techniques that help signs and symptoms of cardiopulmonary and neuromuscular system failure. As a result I have no more numbness, pain and tingling in the mid- uper back and I can sleep better and function better all day. Also my Ascending aortic aneurysms decreased from 4.0 to 3.7 diameters. This is truley a miricle. I am very grateful to Dr. Sagman to have educated me at the same time to teach me how to manage my signs and symptoms at home.
