What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that occurs when the peripheral nerves, the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, are damaged or dysfunctional. Common causes are diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, infections and genetic conditions. The prognosis for peripheral neuropathy depends on the underlying cause of the condition and how well it is treated.
How We Treat Neuropathy in Raleigh, NC
At Raleigh Spine Clinic, we offer several treatment options for peripheral neuropathy. Our two most popular treatment options are Miracle Wave and Summus Horizon Laser. Regardless of your treatment option, we are dedicated to providing you with the highest level of care possible.
The Miracle Wave is a state-of-the-art technology that uses a combination of high-frequency vibration and acoustic waves to stimulate damaged nerves.These vibration and sound waves kickstart the angiogenic process, or formation of new blood cells, to help damaged tissue recover.
This non-invasive treatment option is FDA-approved and safe for men and women of all ages looking for a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment option for their peripheral neuropathy.
Summus Horizon Laser
The Summus Horizon Laser is an advanced high-powered laser technology that utilizes Class IV laser light to improve blood circulation to injured areas. This increased blood flow provides more oxygen to tissues and cells, allowing red blood cells to work more efficiently when repairing damaged tissue.
The Summus Horizon Laser is different from other laser therapy options because it utilizes a unique, powerful wavelength of light that is easily absorbed by the cells in the body, decreasing inflammation and providing pain relief.

Ideal Candidates for Neuropathy Treatments
Peripheral neuropathy can affect people regardless of age or gender. Ideal candidates for treatment at Raleigh Spine Clinic are those who suffer from chronic pain or discomfort in their body and specifically the feet, ankles, legs or hands.
These therapies can be beneficial for individuals with certain medical conditions, including:
- Alcohol use disorders
- Autoimmune disorders
- Chemotherapy treatment
- Vitamin deficiencies
These treatments are also beneficial for patients with nerve damage caused by injury, infection or surgery. They’re also appropriate for those who have not found relief from other forms of pain management, including prescription drugs or nerve stimulation.
Miracle Wave and Summus Horizon Laser therapy is not recommended for women who are pregnant. Contact us to see if either treatments are right for you.
What to Expect from Your Neuropathy Treatment
When you come in for your first appointment at Raleigh Spine Clinic, our team will conduct a thorough evaluation of your medical history, symptoms, and overall health. We may also perform a nerve conduction study to better understand the extent of your nerve damage.
Once we have a comprehensive understanding of your condition, we will create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. We will explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have before treatment.
For a Miracle Wave treatment, your technician will begin by applying a thin coat of ultrasound gel on the treatment area. A handpiece connected to the Miracle Wave machine will then be pressed firmly to the skin and moved in small circular motion while emitting pulses. During treatment you may experience a dull, aching sensation. The treatment lasts approximately 10 minutes.
A Summus Horizon laser session will begin with your technician placing a pair of protective eyewear over your eyes. Next, they’ll slowly move the handpiece over the affected area while the laser emits pulses of light. Many patients report a warm or tingling feeling during treatment. The session lasts approximately 10–30 minutes.
Recovery and Aftercare
After your nonsurgical neuropathy treatment, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a quick and successful recovery. This may include avoiding certain activities or wearing special footwear to protect your feet and ankles.
We may also recommend additional treatments or therapies to complement your neuropathy treatment, such as chiropractic adjustments or physical therapy. We will work closely with you to develop a comprehensive care plan that addresses your unique needs and helps you achieve your goals for improved quality of life.
