Arthritis is a degenerative condition, well-known for causing a lot of chronic pain especially in the joints as the joints degenerate over time. Traditionally, arthritis sufferers can tell when rain or snow is in the forecast even before the local weatherman can. There can be a genetic predisposition for developing more severe and widespread arthritis. It can also be caused by significant repetitive use in one’s career or hobbies, or from trauma and injuries. Most arthritis patients are traditionally prescribed NSAID’s, narcotics, or steroids.
Cloud 9’s arthritis patients have a lot to say about our helpful Arthritis Program at Cloud 9 Acupuncture. We credit our 90% success rate with our innovative cutting edge therapies such as ATP Resonance BioTherapyTM, O3 Regenerative TherapyTM to restore the joints, and pharmaceutical grade supplements to correct vitamin and mineral deficiencies to help the body heal itself.
Our successful Arthritis Program provides patients relief, even after nothing else has worked. Before coming to Cloud 9, patients have usually tried medications, physical therapy, and even stem cell therapy without much improvement.
Now there is Hope… Cloud 9 is usually described the Last Resort with the Best Hope. Call today for a consult 410-847-4766 to learn more and see if you are a candidate for our Arthritis Program.
Neuropathy plagues approximately 20 million people in the United States. This particular type of nerve damage can have a multitude of medical causes.
- Chemotherapy (or Radiation) Induced Peripheral Neuropathy also known as CIPN
- Nerve damage, especially originating from spinal compression, bulging disc, or pinched nerve.
- Viral Induced (including COVID-19)
Symptoms usually include tingling, numbness that can be quite painful, feeling of walking on “pins and needles,” unable to properly feel one’s feet or hands. After the pain of numbness and sharp, hot pain fades the feet or hands become truly numb, which is a progressive degeneration of the condition. This is a sign that the peripheral nerves have actually died and started to recede, which presents as true numbness creeping upwards, for example from the feet up the legs to even the groin. Or from the hands towards the shoulder. The exact level of severity of the Neuropathy condition is assessed by a neurological exam called the Toronto Exam.
Unfortunately, there is not much doctors can offer to treat neuropathy… Until now.
Now there is Hope.

Did you know… We have a specialized Neuropathy Program at Cloud 9?
We begin with a thorough assessment and something called The Toronto Exam, which we revisit every 30-60 days to monitor the patient’s progress with our custom treatments.
Neuropathy responds well to acupuncture, and by combining acupuncture with our other advanced therapies ATP Resonance BioTherapy, Electroacupuncture, and Direct Vitamin Injection Therapy utilizing B12.
Depending on the initial cause of the patient’s neuropathy, we customize our approach. If the neuropathy was caused by radiation or chemotherapy for a cancer patient, a different blend of injections may be used, or the ATP program may be different to address the health of the nerves or the connective tissue.
If a patient’s onset of neuropathy is stemming from a compressed disc in the lumbar area of the spine causing neuropathy in the feet, with confirmed arthritis in the spine, we may consider the addition of O3 Regenerative Therapy to address the arthritis in the spine as well to improve the health of the nerves by relieving micro pressure on the spinal nerve roots from the arthritis.
On the contrary, if the neuropathy is determined to be induced by diabetes, we will look to ATP programs that address insulin resistance, pancreas function, and candida to improve the root of the diabetes as we also run ATP programs for peripheral or small fiber neuropathy, based on the patient’s diagnosis from their neurologist.
Sometimes the root of neuropathy is considered “medically unknown”- we still have a very high success rate in treating this type of neuropathy as well.
The biggest success factor in our neuropathy treatments are
- How much sensation has the patient lost so far? 80% loss of feeling in one’s feet, for example, is much more difficult to treat than 50% loss, and this combined with medical history will determine our estimate for that patient what the success rate for neuropathy treatment at Cloud 9 will be.
- Patient Compliance. Patients must adhere to the treatment plan and frequency of treatment to expect the most optimal results. Usually, if a patient is compliant, they can typically expect an 85% success rate in improving their neuropathy by 70-90% over the course of their recommended treatment plan.
This is very good news, actually, as western medicine does not present many viable treatment options. Neuropathy is considered a degenerative condition that worsens with age, especially without any medical intervention. Usually, a neurologist will recommend a nerve medication like Cymbalta or Gabapentin to reduce the inflammation and burning sensations of neuropathy. However, patients many times will build a tolerance to said medication and continue to worsen in their condition because the root causes of their neuropathy has not been reversed, nor have any changes been made that would support the rejuvenation of cells and nerve tissue that would reverse neuropathy (which is essentially the death of the peripheral endings of the nerves). As neuropathy worsens, it creeps up the legs or arms and can lead to mobility issues and functionality of those limbs, as well as make the patient a fall risk.
That is why we are so happy at Cloud 9 to offer this innovative Neuropathy Program as a solution for neuropathy sufferers.
Now there is hope!
Did You Know?… Acupuncture is the perfect solution for Neuropathy!
Our Acupuncturist has over a 90% success rate in treating neuropathy. First, we begin with conducting a Toronto Exam to determine what percentage of nerve damage is present in the hands and the feet, measuring left and right sides concisely. This way, we can determine how aggressive of a treatment approach is necessary, and for how long.
Most of our neuropathy sufferers attend therapies two times per week, usually incorporating acupuncture, electroacupuncture, ATP Resonance BioTherapy, and sometimes DVIT such as B12 injections, as well as medical grade topicals to improve overall circulation and speed up the body’s ability to heal.
Neuropathy improvements are accumulative over time, with permanent, long-lasting results. The burning, numbness, pins and needles, and fear of falling due to not feeling one’s feet goes away quickly as the neuropathy improves with the prescribed treatment plan. Cloud 9 Acupuncture has been receiving referrals from local neurologists and orthopedic surgeons to treat difficult neuropathy cases, as we have time tested protocols helping our neuropathy patients get back to living the life they love.
The first step is to call for a consultation to assess your neuropathy condition so as to design a proper treatment plan unique to you.
