Neuropathy Treatments



Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder of the peripheral nerves which usually affects the hands and feet, causing weakness, numbness, tingling and pain. Neuropathy can slowly get worse, can improve then relapse, or can become very severe and debilitating. Your Next Step is the leading provider of safe and effective neuropathy treatments on the Main Line and in the greater Philadelphia area.

Peripheral neuropathy symptoms can vary widely, but common neuropathysign and symptoms include numbness, tingling, abnormal sensations, or pain in your feet. Many people try prescription drugs originally used as antidepressants and antiepileptics, but these provide limited relief and unpredictable side effects. Now Your Next Step is offering a NEW treatment for neuropathy that is patented, effective, and drug-free.


MicroVas provides micro vascular therapy and was originally developed by the U.S. military to treat hypothermia in Navy SEALS. Patients suffering from neuropathy often have reduced circulation, oxygenation, and nerve function in their feet and lower extremities. MicroVas which is a non-invasive, pain-free therapy, uses electronic impulses to cause muscle contraction and relaxation cycles which stimulate circulation. Increased blood flow raises the oxygen level in the tissues, which promotes healing in the nerves and muscles which have been damaged. The neuropathy treatment uses a powerful, deeply penetrating waveform to creating dramatic and lasting therapeutic effects.


Initially, you will be evaluated for signs and symptoms of neuropathy. Once we confirm that your symptoms are due to a neuropathy, we will begin MicroVas therapy. MicroVas Treatments use strategically placed emitter pads in diametrical pairs so that a comfortable, deep penetrating electric impulse may pass through the lower leg or foot. MicroVas therapy lasts for approximately 45 minutes and is usually recommended as a 12 treatment regimen which is usually covered by most insurance plans. (We have established a reasonable cost for patients without insurance coverage.)

Although individual results may vary, most patients report a decrease in the original symptoms of burning, tingling, and numbness. At the end of 12 weeks of MicroVas treatment, we expect your balance to be restored and your quality of life improved. Testing suggests that the process is cumulative with repeated treatments, and the results to date have been long lasting.

I want to thank you for the laser surgery you performed on my toenails last summer. It has been less than a year since my procedure and the results are incredible -- my nails went from ridged, yellow and cracked to smooth, clear and shiny.Over the years I had tried many things to rid myself of ugly toenail fungus. I had tried home remedies (applying vodka and Vicks vapor rub to my nails), many over the counter remedies and finally was twice prescribed with oral lamisil. Nothing worked!Several times I saw your advertisement in the newspaper and was hesitant to try yet another nail fungus treatment. Your laser procedure was my last attempt and a true success. Thank you for allowing me to show my feet again in public. - Deardra M.
What can I say about Eric Ricefield! He is like a son to me. He not only takes extremely good care of my feet but of me as well. He is a loving and caring person.

Dr. Ricefield and his staff have proven to be both knowledgeable and caring. We feel very fortunate to have our son have the benefit of that experience.

Thanks so much for your attention and skill in dealing with my toe fungus. I should have listened to you when the issue first appeared. However, I kept thinking it was not really a fungal infection. I even went to another podiatrist who indicated that I was fine. Well, the problem went from a few toes to all 10. My nails were a mess! Thank you for coming to the rescue. The laser treatment was painless and very effective. As of today, I could be a foot model - my nails look the best they have looked in years. I am looking forward to wearing sandals this summer!

It doesn't seem that long ago that I could barely walk. If it weren't for you and your abilities, I know I would not be enjoying being on my feet.

After seeing Dr. Ricefield for a localized toenail fungus and having the PinPointe Laser procedure done, the results were amazing. I now have a healthy looking toenail with absolutely no pain. Thanks to Dr. Ricefield and PinPointe Laser I can confidently wear my open toed shoes once again.

My New Nail experience was one of the best things I have ever done. I had had some level of athlete's foot and nail issues since college years ago and I had been looking for a nail fungus solution for years after my nails got very bad. The New Nail process has totally cleared up all my athlete's foot and nail issues and has really given me new feet. Actually they look so good I wonder if they ever looked this good before. I can't see any reason anyone would wait for anything else.- Tom P.
