The vagus nerve may be the key to long COVID relief.

The symptoms of long COVID, also called chronic COVID or long-haul COVID, can linger for weeks and months – or longer. Research suggests that the coronavirus itself may have damaged the very part of your nervous system that is responsible for recovery, and damage could be linked to the effects of the coronavirus on a vital nerve, the vagus nerve. The vagus nerve can be disrupted by viral infections, excessive stress, disease, inflammation, and certain medications, among other things. If you’re suffering from long COVID, rehabilitation of this nerve is essential to helping your body function properly.

What is the vagus nerve?

The vagus nerve, also known as cranial nerve ten, runs from the brainstem through the neck and thorax to the abdomen. It’s responsible for controlling heart rate, breathing, speech, swallowing, taste, digestion, mood, immune response, and inflammation response. The vagus nerves are the main nerves of the parasympathetic nervous system, which is the “rest-and-digest” system and takes you out of the “fight-or-flight” or stressed state of your body.

At Functional Medicine Center of MN, we have specific tools to measure the health, integrity, and function of the vagus nerve and the ability of the vagus system to work. Dr. Robert DeYoung, DC, QNCP is the only doctor certified in Quantum Neurology in MN, a specific technique that rehabilitates nerves, including the vagus nerve.

Chronic knee pain can be caused by many different things. Some common symptoms of knee pain begin with an injury or repeated stress on the knee. Painful knees can also be attributed to aging.

If you have knee pain, you know how much it impacts the quality of your life. And you’ve also probably heard (or tried) many ways to make it better. At the Functional Medicine Center and Chiropractic Center in Buffalo, Minnesota, we consider the whole person and the essential systems within your body to determine a plan to help you heal. We address the root cause, not simply the symptoms of knee pain, to give you an improved range of motion and pain-free movement, without injections, harmful drugs, or surgery.

Our patients are the proof! We’ve helped people of all ages get relief from chronic knee pain. Check out these videos featuring some of our patients talking about how they achieved relief at Functional Medicine Center of MN.

Peripheral Neuropathy Grid

Peripheral neuropathy treatment videos from patients

At Functional Medicine Center of MN, our peripheral neuropathy treatments help patients open up healing pathways and increase circulation, diminishing or eliminating the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy. If you’re experiencing numbness, tingling, or burning sensation in your hands or feet, if your balance is off, or if you feel like you are walking on rocks, pebbles, or wadded-up socks, you could be suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy is a degenerative condition that may be caused by many different factors. Sometimes it is caused by old injuries that are blocking your own body’s ability to create circulation and healing. In some cases, it is exacerbated by diabetes or poor diet. It can also be one of the after-effects of chemotherapy. Whatever the cause, research shows Peripheral Neuropathy does NOT heal or even slow down with medication. Medications only mask the systems of Peripheral Neuropathy but do not address the cause.

Our assessment covers a much broader range of diagnostics than those used by traditional medicine. For instance, Quantum Reflex Analysis (QRA) is a testing method that pinpoints internal problems and physical traumas that can cause nerve damage, reduced blood supply, and nutritional deficiencies. Bring your spouse, partner, or loved one to an initial assessment and learn all you can about your body and how our treatments can help.


You don’t have to live with peripheral neuropathy pain.

There is help! These videos are just a small sampling of patients who have had great success with Functional Medicine technologies, treatments, and techniques to get real relief from the pain and discomfort of peripheral neuropathy. Learn more about how Functional Medicine Center of MN can help you gain freedom from discomfort and pain associated with peripheral neuropathy. Please contact us or schedule an assessment.
