Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Peachtree City: HealthChoice Chiropractic
Conditions that cause and signs of peripheral neuropathy
The peripheral nervous system sends information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. Approximately 21 million Americans are affected by peripheral neuropathy.
Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes or diseases and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes mellitus.
Signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy might include:
- Gradual onset of numbness, prickling or tingling in your feet or hands, which can spread upward into your legs and arms
- Sharp, jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Lack of coordination and falling
- Muscle weakness or paralysis
- Heat intolerance and altered sweating
- Bowel, bladder or digestive problems
- Changes in blood pressure which can cause feelings of dizziness or light headedness
Peripheral neuropathy therapy provided at HealthChoice Chiropractic in Peachtree City can help reduce pain
Getting oxygen and nutrients to damaged nerves is key in treating peripheral neuropathy. This can be done through many methods, including our state of the Art NIR (Near InfraRed) Laser light therapy, keeping the spine properly aligned. This will feed the nerves and help to destroy the free radicals that cause damage to the body’s cells, leading to an interference with nerve transmission.
According to the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, neuropathy pain in the arms and legs is the second most common ailment treated by chiropractors. As we get older, the vertebral joints of the spine begin to degenerate leading to more pressure on the roots of the spinal nerves, causing symptoms. Spinal adjustments bring the vertebrae back into alignment, releasing trapped or compressed nerves. Many studies have shown that chiropractic care as a supplemental therapy can substantially decrease symptoms and pain in patients.
At HealthChoice Chiropractic, we provide many natural methods of treatment to manage neuropathy pain. Our chiropractors work with our patients to determine which treatments will be the most effective in treating their specific pain.
