Treatment methods

Putting an end to the symptoms

If the cause of your polyneuropathy has been found, then at Schoen Clinic we initiate – if possible – therapy to treat the causes. The corresponding therapeutic measures are implemented in close coordination with your primary care physician or private practise neurologist over the long term on an outpatient basis.

In addition to treating the causes, therapy for the symptoms is also important. Some drugs that were originally developed to treat depression and epileptic seizures have proven effective here as well.

The goal of polyneuropathy therapy is to prevent the symptoms from worsening.

Conservative treatment methods

Relieving pain and tingling

Polyneuropathy therapy also includes the effective treatment of symptoms. Here we use drugs that were actually developed to treat depression and epilepsy, but are also very effective against neuropathic pain. In addition, our neurologists use special procedures such as high-tone electrical muscle stimulation (HTEMS®).

Physical therapy is used to combat pain, for example physiotherapy, alternating and exercise baths, electrical treatment or warm and cold compresses. This improves blood circulation, strengthens weakened muscles and maintains mobility.

Polyneuropathy treatment: a holistic therapy approach

The treatment of the causes is an essential part of polyneuropathy therapy at Schoen Clinic. The aim is to prevent further destruction of the damaged nerves and to give them the chance to regenerate again.
Depending on the cause, some forms of polyneuropathy can be treated well. This means that further progress can be stopped or even healed. With our causal polyneuropathy therapy, we treat, among other things, the causes of alcohol-related polyneuropathy, diabetic polyneuropathy or infection-related polyneuropathy as well as Guillain-Barré syndrome.
