Our team of caring professionals take a specialized approach to nerve pain.
FDA Approved treatment heals and restores the nerves and nerve function with a
non-invasive treatment, even in the most severe case, without the use of drugs or surgery.
There are over 100 causes of neuropathy. We are going to talk about a few of the more common causes. The most common is diabetic neuropathy. Approximately 50% of diabetic patients will develop neuropathy. Generally, it starts in the toes and feet, then spreads to the ankles, and eventually the calves. As the symptoms develop between the ankles and the calves, some patients may start to feel symptoms develop in their fingertips. It doesn’t affect all the fingertips at first, but as it progresses, all of the fingertips become affected with neuropathy. Then neuropathy migrates to the fingers, then the hand and eventually it reaches the arms. Another cause of neuropathy is from chemotherapy. The chemotherapy medication is generally used for cancer treatment and is designed to kill off the cancer cells, but it can also kill off the delicate nerve cells that cause neuropathy. Generally this type of neuropathy develops in the hands and feet at the same time, about one to two months after stopping the chemotherapy treatments. Another type of neuropathy is called “idiopathic” neuropathy or “unknown” causes of neuropathy. Approximately 30% of neuropathies are of the idiopathic type. Modern medicine just doesn’t know why you have idiopathic neuropathy. You can also develop neuropathy in the nerves that goes to your organs, which is called Autonomic neuropathy. This is usually a later stage of neuropathy, where the signals from the brain don’t all arrive at your internal organs and cause them not to function as well as they should. Left untreated and/or taking medication is not truly treating neuropathy, it just dulls the pain in the brain so you can function during the day or sleep better at night. Neuropathy generally gets worse as time goes on, even as symptoms diminish; which can be a sign that the nerves are dying off. Eventually, some patients are told they need to have their medication dosage increased and possible amputation because of neuropathy.
"The most common mistakes neuropathy sufferers make
are to take the 'it will go away on its own' or 'the medications
will get me better' mentality.
Doing this for long periods can
cause you to reach a point of no return."

NEUROPATHY PAIN TREATMENT IS LIFE'S WORK FOR HORNS
PUBLISHED BY THE DAILY HERALDAPRIL 9TH 2022
Several years ago, a car plowed into Eleanor Rourke as she was crossing the street. Her right side was nearly demolished. Her legs were broken in eight places with severe nerve damage and nerve pain. The specialists told her she probably would never walk again.
Although she still needs some therapy, today Rourke is able to get around without even using a cane. She credits her recovery to Chiropractor Dr. Daniel Horn and his neuropathy treatment program.
"The doctors are responsible for bringing me to where I am today", Rourke said. Drs. Daniel and Peter Horn, chiropractors, and brother Steve Horn, an office administrator, are part of the staff at Nerve Pain Centers Neuropathy and Nerve Pain Treatment centers with locations in Palatine, Bloomingdale, Des Plaines and Elgin. The centers often see patients who have experienced increased nerve pain, numbness, tingling and burning sensations that have continued over the years, as well as patients who have conditions and symptoms that have worsened, and are harder to diagnose, such as side effects from chemotherapy, prescription drugs and diabetes. "The main reason why people come to us is that they have heard about the side effects or problems with certain types of medications and prescription drugs, or they may be wary of following a drug treatment plan for longterm care." Horn said.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
"The Programs Are Tailor Made For My Problem"
Hi, I'm here to tell you my experience with my neuropathy program. I'm talking about Dr. Dan. About a year-and-a-half ago I was teaching line dancing, and I found that my left foot was getting really, really feeling bad and burning, so I had to give up the line dancing program. And I'm very active in sports and exercising and I got to the point where it was just hurting me too bad. So I had this, saw this ad in one of the newspapers about the clinic, and I decided to come in and listen to his program. Well, when I got here everything he said applied to me. Those were all the symptoms I had and I thought "gee, I have to do this, I have to do something to try and help myself to get better." So my husband and I came in to hear what the program would be, and we decided I should do it, and I'm so glad I didbecause right at this point I feel like I'm a hundred percent better. I can do all the thingsI did before and I am just so thankful that I came for Dr. Dan’s program. The nutrition part, the vitamins, the exercise program, all the programs he gave were great and they just help me really continue my life. I celebrated my 80th birthday and I feel like I'm 15 back and I just thank the Lord that I took this program and I'm feeling as good as I did
"I Have Never Felt Any Better"
Since I've been coming to the clinic andworking with Dr. Dan, my feet feel over 90% better. I don't have thenumbness like I did before, the pain. Most of my pain was from when I was just sitting in the chair and putting my feet up and that's pretty much 100% fixed. I still get a little tingling or numbness now and then, but for the most part I'll go a whole day or many days without even thinking about it. Where before I thought about it almost all day constantly, so it's been great.
"Dr. Horn Has Helped To Start Getting Me Back To My Normal Life"
My level of pain was so bad in my legs, the pins and needle feeling and the numbness in my hands, I couldn't even sleep in a bed atnight. So I gave it a shot and I came here for 3 months, took thenutritionals, went through the therapy. I used the red light treatment ,the vibrating disk and the electronic stimulator. I've had tremendous success. My legs and my feet are 0 for pain. I don't have any pain whatsoever. When I started I couldn't even use my legs as far as having any feeling or anything of that nature. They wanted to replace my right knee because you know it was worn out cartilage and all this stuff from when I was young. Fortunately the inflammation is going down to such a level that the right knee doesn't
even hurt, so I'm not going to do any knee surgery. I don't have any level of pain, the pain is all gone. So if I had to rate it when I started maybe it was a 9 or so, right now the pain level in my feet and legs are 0. My hands are better, my left hand is a zero I have no problem whatsoever my right hand is maybe a 2 and I have some tingling in that. You know what, I finished the treatment and I thought that it was of such value to me personally. I just wanted to let people know that I think this is a good program, it has been very beneficial to me.
