Our elite team of practitioners take a unique approach to nerve restoration combining proprietary, state-of-the-art technologies and FDA-approved treatments for Peripheral Nerve Disease
The Team of Neuropathy Specialists
Our practice is one of only a handful in the country skilled at restoring damaged nerves. Dr. Richards has unique training, with an emphasis on extremity care (feet, wrists, ankles) in addition to years of spine and joint education and practice. We are aware that nerve regeneration is complex. There is no one-size-fits-all treatment.
Our elite team of practitioners take a unique approach to nerve restoration combining proprietary, state-of-the-art technologies and FDA-approved treatments for Peripheral Nerve Disease. This specialized care for Neuropathic pain naturally heals and regenerates the nerves, even in the most severe cases.
Dr. Christopher Richards, DC heads up the neurological restoration team at Advanced Medical of Nashville. He is an expert in Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) and in treating and supporting "tough cases," including Diabetic Neuropathy, Peripheral Neuropathy caused by Chemotherapy (CIPN), Diabetic Nerve Pain, Nerve Damage after surgery (surgical nerve damage), Idiopathic Neuropathy, as well as other neurological disorders, such as migraines and childhood ADD.
A sought-after speaker, Dr Richards regularly appears on television covering various health topics, including neuropathy, fibromyalgia, joint pain, knee pain, and other chronic pain conditions.
At Advanced Medical of Nashville, the entire team of nerve pain specialists are committed to treating the underlying causes of chronic pain, rather than just managing the pain with medications.
This means personal attention, doctors who really listen and understand their patients, and can then develop custom treatment plans that are natural and non-invasive. Our practice's focus is on restoring damaged areas back to health as quickly as possible, so that patients can enjoy time with their families and regain their lives.
"Most of our patients come to see us because they are frustrated and discouraged with the options they have been given. They have been suffering for years simply because they didn't know anything could be done about it. The saddest part is, nerve damage can not only be physically painful, but emotionally is hard. It robs people of their lives, makes them not want to be active, doing the things they enjoy like spending time with their grandkids, or families. Even simple everyday things like showering, sleeping and cooking become difficult.
But we know that as the nerves are restored to healthy function, my patients' symptoms are eliminated and they get their lives back. And that is my purpose - not just to restore the nerves, but to give my patients enjoyable lives and independence. We do it every day. And that is incredibly rewarding."
