If you’ve ever experienced nerve pain, you already know where this is going. It’s a REAL pain in the feet (or hands, or legs, or wherever it is) Yours truly has experienced this in the past and there was a time I was begging doctors to amputate my leg because my foot was so tingly with constant shooting pains. I finally found relief, but I sure wish that the trio of leaders at Nerve Renewal had been running their business back then.

At Nerve Renewal, an incredible story of innovation and compassion unfolds at their newest clinic in South Oklahoma City. This multi-location Oklahoma clinic is owned by Tim Bales & spearheaded by Mark Cope, the Director of Community Engagement, and his brother Glenn, the Vice President. This clinic is not just a medical facility—it’s a beacon of hope for those suffering from neuropathy.

Nerve Renewal’s journey began with a vision to bring relief and recovery to those suffering from nerve disorders. “So, Nerve Renewal was started by our owner, Tim Bales,” Mark explains. He was inspired by a friend’s success with similar clinics in Colorado. Seeing the profound impact on patients there, Tim was determined to replicate that success in Oklahoma. “It just kind of went from there,” Mark recalls. They started with one clinic in Northwest Oklahoma City, which quickly grew as the community embraced their unique approach to treating neuropathy.

What is Neuropathy?

Haha, you might not know that your little publisher here is also a registered nurse, did ya? I do know a thing or two about medical stuff (and none of this is advice, but let me tell ya, it’s revolutionary!)

Neuropathy, or peripheral neuropathy, is a complex condition involving nerve damage outside the central nervous system. It commonly affects the hands and feet, causing symptoms like pain, numbness, tingling, muscle weakness and falls due to imbalance. This condition can result from various factors, including diabetes, chemotherapy, and physical injuries. Mark elaborates, “Neuropathy can present anywhere in the body—face, legs, arms, hands, shoulders—and usually presents as numbness, tingling, or shooting pain.”

For those dealing with the challenging symptoms of diabetes, including numb and tingly feet, or those experiencing balance issues due to chemotherapy-induced neuropathy, Nerve Renewal’s treatments offer a new hope. Their approach is perfect for people of all ages suffering from these and other nerve-related issues, helping them regain a sense of normalcy and improving their quality of life.

Nerve Renewal stands out for its innovative, drug-free approach to treating neuropathy. “We use a technique called neuromodulation,” Mark details, “which directly affects the nerve cells, turning them off to help them recover.” This method is not only innovative but also recognized for its safety and efficacy, being FDA-cleared and covered by Medicare, the VA, and most private insurance! Getting started with treatment at Nerve Renewal is super straightforward: Just give them a call. They’ll even help you determine if what you’re experiencing is even neuropathy. Your doctor doesn’t have to diagnose you before you come to Nerve Renewal, but they might need to send you a referral to be checked out. “Medicare does NOT need a referral, but Medicaid, VA benefits, and others on private insurance MIGHT need a referral from their primary doctor or specialist.

This approach is sharply different from traditional treatments, which often rely heavily on medications like gabapentin and Lyrica, known for their side effects that are undesirable for many. I literally felt like I didn’t get the joke when I tried these medications.

The real measure of Nerve Renewal’s success is seen in its patients’ stories. Mark shares a particularly touching story about a patient whose life was transformed by their treatment. “He was an avid hiker who almost gave up his passion due to neuropathy. After our treatment, he’s not only back on the trails but recently went on a 15-mile hike with his wife of 50 years,” Mark beams with pride. These stories are not rare at Nerve Renewal, where countless patients have regained control of their lives.

With a mission to make their services accessible to all, Nerve Renewal is rapidly expanding. “We’re aggressively expanding around the state,” says Mark. Clinics are strategically located to ensure they are within reach for those who need them the most, especially given that neuropathy patients often face mobility challenges. “Nobody wants to have to drive 2 hours to a clinic appointment,” says, me, Amy. LOL but truly, who does? The leaders of Nerve Renewal are strategically placing locations so that people can get access to their treatments wherever they are in our state.
