Using Ortho Jelly to Treat Your Neuropathy

Using Ortho Jelly to Treat Your Neuropathy

When nerve tissue is damaged, the result isn’t always numbness. A damaged nerve doesn’t just shut down. It can continue to report sensations to your brain, but these may not always be sensations that have physical causes. 

Peripheral neuropathy, which refers to any nerve damage outside the brain and spinal column, describes the sensations created by malfunctioning nerves. 

Nerve damage can result from a physical injury, metabolic conditions, infections, genetic conditions, or exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes, where extended periods of high blood sugar damage nerve tissue, often in the feet. 

Treating neuropathy can be difficult, since there’s no physical condition to correct. Pain medication may work, but the side effects can be serious, and your body may become drug resistant over time, leading to stronger doses and the risk of addiction. 

Life Point Medical recommends Ortho Jelly, a fully organic pain relief product, for its patients who suffer from peripheral neuropathy. Well-suited as a complementary therapy to other treatments, Ortho Jelly may be able to reduce dependence or dosages of conventional pain medications. 

Understanding neuropathy

Nerves perform three general tasks in your body. They control autonomic functions, things you can’t control, like the beating of your heart or breathing. Motion and strength comes from another type of nerve, and you’re able to touch and feel due to the abilities of the third type of nerve. 

It’s these sensory nerves that create the numbness, tingling, and pain associated with peripheral neuropathy, and these are also the nerves that respond to Ortho Jelly. You can develop sensory symptoms of peripheral neuropathy due to conditions like: 

In some cases, you may have more than one contributing factor, or doctors may not be able to identify how your neuropathy began. 

How Ortho Jelly works

Ortho Jelly is a blend of herbs and essential oils, free from fragrances, dyes, and other non-essential ingredients. The creator’s hypothesis is that extraneous substances designed to make a pain relief product appealing to consumers block the action of organically sourced natural pain relievers. 

You’re likely already familiar with many of the ingredients in Ortho Jelly, things like menthol, capsaicin, and eucalyptus, natural agents that produce sensations, like hot, cold, tingling feelings. As Ortho Jelly is absorbed into your skin, damaged nerves still respond to these substances. 

The neuropathy pain signals are essentially drowned out by the effects of Ortho Jelly’s ingredients. Instead of discomfort and pain, you feel the response created by Ortho Jelly. 

While each patient responds differently, you could find that your neuropathy symptoms disappear or are no longer a distraction. If you otherwise depend on pain medications, you may be able to reduce dosages or eliminate their use altogether. 

Finding your right answer starts with contacting Life Point Medical to arrange a consultation. You can call the office directly or schedule an appointment online. Find out if Ortho Jelly is the answer for you, as it is for so many, by booking your visit now.
