K.C. - 57, Peripheral Neuropathy, chemotherapy-induced

At the age of 55, I was diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer. My successful surgery was followed by 12 sessions of adjunctive chemotherapy (Folfox). While the chemotherapy was less brutal than some, it still came with its side effects, leaving me with chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) in my hands and feet.

My hands became intolerant to the cold, hypersensitive finger tips and loss of fine motor skills. The symptoms in my feet included numb toes, hypersensitive soles, intolerance to cold, partial loss of balance, minimal flexibility and edema.

My employer's medical department recommended InterX Therapy Center. I did 14 treatments in a 4 week period and the swelling (edema) was completely eliminated. The other symptoms I was experiencing in my feet would lessen for a few minutes to hours but then return. My hands responded slowly but eventually returned to 100% normal within 5 months of my initial session.

I returned to InterX one year later with the previous symptoms in my feet. After the 4th day of treatment, I had a break through day with the feeling returning to my toes. I completed another 12 treatments of therapy and had restoration of my flexibility and a normal sense of balance. The remaining symptoms slowly abated but my feet are now 90% normal. I have been released to work after being on medical leave for approximately 2 years.

I was told by my neurologist that, "these things take time and there is nothing you can do about it."

I cannot say enough accolades regarding this non-invasive, drug-free treatment. Janice & Annette, the therapists at InterX, are dedicated professionals who make a difference.
