Several years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and underwent chemotherapy treatments. I’m now in remission and blessed to still be here but I was in so much pain. My feet and hands were constantly burning – a tingling sensation, almost like when your leg or arm falls asleep,” shares Beth.

Beth was suffering from Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN). While chemotherapy kills cancer cells it also causes a lot of other damage throughout the body. 30-40% of cancer patients treated with chemotherapy result in peripheral neuropathy.

“Standing all day was not just a challenge, it caused me physical agony. Keeping up with my busy schedule – forget about it. I couldn’t even go for walks on the beach.” Beth, like so many others, was prescribed Gabapentin to help with the pain and told there was nothing anyone could do – in their words ‘there is no treatment for neuropathy.’

Then Beth found Dr. Rebecca Gibbons of Acupuncture & Wellness of Pensacola. By blending the time-tested science of acupuncture with more modern, medical technology, Dr. Gibbons has designed a real solution for peripheral neuropathy.

“Acupuncture is incredible at restoring blood flow and stimulating damaged nerves, preventing them from dying off,” tells Dr. Gibbons.

We take our treatments a step further by integrating ATP Resonance BioTherapy™ which targets specific nerves in the body using microcurrent. ATP therapy is like watering a plant. This treatment will stimulate the blood vessels to grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.”

After only four weeks of treatment Beth is already seeing incredible improvement. “I’ve taken the handicap placard off my rearview mirror and I’m finally back to walking on the beach. I can’t wait to see how I feel at the end of my program! I used to think that this pain was just the price I have to pay for getting older. Dr. Gibbons has really given me hope for a better life!”

The number of treatments needed to allow the nerves to fully recover will vary from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation.

Dr. Gibbons and her staff specialize in treating chronic pain, complicated neurological conditions and autoimmune diseases that leave other professionals scratching their heads.
