CASE STUDY SNAPSHOT: Treating Neuropathy with the NEUBIE

Case Study Overview:

In this case study snapshot, we head to Kansas where a patient of Wilkens Physical Therapy had chemo induced neuropathy in both feet and hands which made him unable to walk on uneven surfaces, button his shirt, or even walk in the house without shoes on. 

Even more critical, the patient had recently learned that his neuropathy was going to require him to change out the chemo drugs that had been helping with his battle with cancer. In order to improve his situation, the patient was introduced to the NEUBIE e-stim device

Gaining the Trust of the Patient

It’s important to note that the clinician, K.J., had been seeing this patient for shoulder treatment and had already gained trust with the patient. This trust allowed the patient to open up that they were suffering from Neuropathy from cancer treatment and were willing to try the new therapy technique that K.J. suggested. K.J. trusted the process of mapping that he learned through the NEUBIE training and used it to create the treatment. 

He started using the NEUBIE on bilateral LE and felt immediate improvement with neuropathy. After just two months of NEUBIE treatments, the patient now has 100% feeling in both hands and feet and has been able to remain on his current chemotherapy drugs. 

“I have been seeing success with the NEUBIE since I added it to my practice but these results have been the biggest shock with using this device!”

Treating Neuropathy and Other Nerve Conditions with the NEUBIE

Thank you to our client K.J. for sharing this amazing case study snapshot of how he is helping patients regain functionality and improve their lives by harnessing the innovations currently available with physical therapy technology

Wilkens Physical Therapy has treated 10 patients so far with this program and finds that the water protocol works best. All 10 say they feel relief and see improvements after just the first session!

Plus, the patient’s physician who is treating their cancer diagnosis has even requested to discuss other ways that KJ and his team can collaborate to help more patients.
