Livingston Foot Care Specialists serving Nassau County New York now offers innovative treatments to help our patients who suffer from pain and muscle weakness which are often caused by diabetic foot neuropathy. MicroVascular Therapy (MVT) is a new mode of physical medicine that addresses the problem uniquely. It is a noninvasive and pain-free treatment. More than 85% of MVT patients have experienced improved sensation and reduced pain, and half of these patients have experienced full restoration.
MicroVas uses ionic impulses to increase the blood flow and induce neuromuscular stimulation of the venous muscle pump to increase the metabolic process. This also causes the oxygen level in the blood to rise. As a result, new blood vessels begin to grow (a process called angiogenesis) as well as new nerve tissue (called neurogenesis) so that actual, physical restoration will follow.
