Transforming The Treatment of Pain

Dr. Peter Carney

As an internationally acclaimed physician, Dr. Carney uses his skill, knowledge, and expertise to help patients in chronic pain live a better life. His efforts help you avoid the harm your painful condition has inflicted on you. Many of the patients who come to see him have already had extensive treatments that did not help, and have been told that nothing else can be done.

Dr. Carney uses a new technique that heals damaged nerves. He will also assist you in developing concepts that allow your own strengths and skills to deal with your pain. These concepts make Dr. Carneys’ practice different from the traditional methods that focus on giving you treatments that mask your symptoms. Dr. Carney treats you as an active partner in the care you receive.

Dr. Carney specializes in treating peripheral neuropathy. Dr. Carney is the only physician in Michiana to utilize a treatment called Combined Electrochemical Therapy (CET). He has published extensively about CET and has presented his results to physicians from all over the world.

Painful Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy is a result of damage to the peripheral nerves that causes: weakness, numbness, and pain; mostly in the hands and feet.

Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy

Called DPN for short, this condition most often affects the feet and legs. Symptoms include: tingling, burning, and a “pins and needles” feeling from the lightest touch.

Chemotherapy Induced Peripheral Neuropathy

CIPN is a common adverse effect of many anticancer drugs and can present with unpleasant feelings in the hands and/or feet; typically in a pattern similar to wearing stockings or gloves.

Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy

When the cause of nerve damage can’t be determined, it’s referred to as idiopathic neuropathy, with symptoms including: numbness, pain, and balance issues.

Other Neuropathic Conditions

Other neuropathic conditions include: Complex Regional Pain Syndromes, Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, Phantom Limb Pain, Shingles, and Postherpetic Neuralgia.

Neck Pain

Neck pain can be brought on by many things, with cervical disc disease and whiplash as two very common causes. They both are associated with pain and stiffness.

Back Pain

As one of the leading reasons why people visit the doctor, back pain takes many forms and can be caused by disc disease, sciatica, spinal stenosis, or arthritis.

Leg and Foot Pain

If you are suffering from chronic leg and foot pain that has no obvious cause, or if the pain is due to back problems or neuropathy, Dr. Carney offers a solution that can help.

Arm Pain

When the neck and/or neuropathy are the causes of arm pain, it may be difficult to diagnose. Numbness and tingling are often associated with chronic arm pain, as well.

Joint Pain

Joint pain is characterized by pain, discomfort, or inflammation. It can be mild or severe, and recognizing the signs is the first step to finding the appropriate treatment.

Chronic Pain Syndrome

Chronic pain syndrome lasts for 3 months or longer and sufferers report hurting day in and day out. CPS usually begins with one problem, such as headaches or back pain, and can inflict emotional damage, as well.

Arthritis

Symptoms of arthritis can be constant or intermittent and range from mild to severe, with more severe cases sometimes leading to permanent joint damage. People typically report swelling, stiffness, and tenderness.

Cancer Pain

Cancer pain can be dull, achy, or sharp, and range from mild to severe. Surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation are known to cause pain, in addition to the cancer itself.

Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain. It can affect sleep, memory, and mood, leaving sufferers feeling very fatigued.

Patient Testimonials

“I am so grateful to have Dr. Carney. He has helped me through the pain from multiple surgeries. He has used medication along with other techniques that have really helped me. I’m on the road to no medication due to his expertise. He’s a great doctor. He is straight forward with you, and tells it like it is. I have referred several other to Dr. Carney for treatment of their pain. Give him a chance: The only thing you have to lose is pain”

Chris M.

“I’m just finishing my treatment for neuropathy with Dr. Carney which is painless and no side effects. I’m no longer on Gabapentin, ice packs or creams for relief. I can wear shoes, cover my feet with a blanket, scrub toes (I could barely touch them before). My feet feel like mine…not walking on blocks of wood. Numbness mostly gone.”

Linda M

“I’ve been seeing Dr. Carney since 2013. He has done a great job for the pain in my back. He has done a great job taking pain out of my hip and shoulders. And now he is treating neuropathy in my feet and he’s brought it down from a ten to a zero. I think he’s the greatest doctor around here for pain. I wouldn’t go to anyone else that treats pain but Dr. Carney.”
