Peripheral Neuropathy is the result of damage to the peripheral nerves; most commonly found in the hands and feet. It can result from many different things; such as diabetes, injuries, and infections. Peripheral Neuropathy can even be the result from taking certain drugs.
The central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) sends information to the rest of the body using peripheral nerves.
When these nerves are damaged it can cause several different problems.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy:
- Burning Pain
- Numbness and/or Tingling
- Sharp Electric Pain
- Difficulty sleeping
- Pain in daily activities (walking, typing/writing, driving, etc.)
It can result from many different things; such as diabetes, injuries, and infections. It can even be the result from taking certain drugs.
We provide some of the most advanced non-surgical FDA approved Peripheral Neuropathy treatments that are available today. While traditional medication can be very helpful for many things, one problem is that it’s usually designed to strictly treat symptoms rather than the specific issue. The Peripheral Neuropathy treatments we use succeed because they treat the problem at its source. We combine advanced technology and treatments to help restore, stabilize, and rebuild the nerves in your extremities. Many patients experience some improvement within their first few treatments.
Chiropractic adjustments directly affect musculoskeletal structures by reducing pain and increasing joint motion. Musculoskeletal structures include ligaments, muscles, joints, joint capsules, and the surround muscle tissues. By having proper mobility in the joints, the pressure to a spinal nerve causing pain will diminish and resolve.
When chiropractic adjustments are given to relieve the pressure placed on the nerves of the spine, relief is noticed almost instantly. This relationship between the spine and nervous system is the main focus of chiropractic treatment. With Chiropractic care, patients not only respond to spine pain conditions, but also to conditions affecting the entire body as well.
This combination of traditional and natural therapies allows our patients to truly receive the best of both worlds when it comes to healthcare today. By first focusing on relieving the inflamed and injured tissues of the spine and body, and combine it with functional rehabilitation for strengthening the muscles around it, it gives our patients a much faster recovery time and much longer results.
