Anodyne Therapy

By  | 

A new therapy is coming the rescue of diabetic patients.

Archbold Hospital has implemented Anodyne Therapy. The machine emits infrared light through the skin, working to heal damaged nerves that cause chronic pain, numbness and muscle weakness.

Prior to this therapy, drugs were mostly prescribed.

Price says, "Medication has side effects, as every medication does, where the anodyne therapy is a very natural thing. There is no side effects. It either works or it doesn't work."

For diabetic patients, studies show a 75 percent success rate. Price says adding an exercise component with the therapy also helps with the recovery process.
