More than 20 million Americans suffer from peripheral neuropathy, also referred to as nerve pain. Common neuropathy symptoms include burning, weakness, numbness or tingling sensations in the hands and feet. Neuropathy is usually treated with medications that mask the pain and often cause more issues than they are worth, and Dr. Waugh recognizes that these patients are desperate for help.
Dr. Waugh believes that there is a better way to treat neuropathy than simply prescribing addictive nerve pain medication that only mask the pain. His neuropathy treatment improves the overall wellness and health of his patients, and the effectiveness of his treatments has been proven through the results of his patients who suffer from nerve pain as a result of diabetes, chemotherapy, and many other causes.

Though Dr. Waugh is not an orthopedic surgeon, he has developed and used a conservative approach to treat orthopedic conditions that often results in improved pain and function without surgery.
Orthopedic conditions affect muscles, ligaments and joints. Orthopedic disorders are injuries or diseases that cause knee pain, whiplash, torn ligaments, arthritis, and more. These are just a few of many orthopedic disorders. Common symptoms of orthopedic problems include swelling or warmth of the joint, joint stiffness, and recurring joint pain.
Osteoporosis is just one of the many orthopedic conditions, yet it affects 10 million Americans, while another 18 million are at risk of developing the disease. With orthopedic-related issues affecting so many Americans, and common treatment options that often yield little results or cause more issues, Dr. Waugh recognizes that these patients are desperate for real help.

A NOTE FROM DR. WAUGH
This is Dr. Scott Waugh. I am not new to the IMS building, but I am a new provider with Little River Healthcare – IMS Edmond. I am a Family Practice and Primary Care Sports Medicine physician and have been practicing non-surgical orthopedics and sports medicine for more than 8 years.
For most of that time, I have been focused on providing a conservative opinion for those aches and pains, sprains and strains, and arthritis type pain in orthopedic medicine. I have been using ultrasound technology to accurately diagnose and treat these conditions, reducing my use of MRI and other imaging.
Ultrasound also provides pinpoint accuracy for needle guidance when injecting joints, tendons and nerves. This greatly reduces risk for injury and side effects, and eliminates the need for sedation in many cases.
The most exciting treatment I have learned over the last several years is the relatively new treatment for nerve pain. Historically, there has been no treatment for this condition other than pain control with medication. Now there is another option. If you or someone you know is suffering from nerve pain or neuropathy causing balance issues, numbness, tingling, burning, pins and needles, and pain in the feet and/or hands, please come see me.
I have started treating these conditions with a new treatment called Combined Electrochemical Therapy. You may have even heard the commercials on the radio for nerve pain treatment. The difference between those clinics and mine is that I am using top-of-the-line technology and am able to bill most insurances, including medicare, for the therapy.
The other astounding trend in my clinic – a success rate of over 80%!
I am so excited to be involved with Little River Healthcare – IMS Edmond and to be able to bring these treatment options to the clinic. If you or someone you know have questions about joint pain, nerve pain, back or neck pain, and even some of the newer regenerative orthopedic treatments (like PRP and Stem Cell Injections), I hope to be able to talk to you soon.
