Study Summary

All of the 35 patients who qualified for this study were diagnosed with diabetes, foot pain/discomforting foot sensations and impaired balance.  Half of patients received 12 treatments that included Anodyne, manual physical therapy and home exercise. The remainder received the same 12 treatments but without Anodyne.



Anodyne treated patients obtained better results than those who just received physical therapy and home exercises alone, including:

  • 33% more pain relief
  • 6 times the reduction in discomforting foot sensations
  • 2.5 times the improvement in balance
