Neuropathy, or peripheral neuropathy, is a term used to describe a category of health problems and the accompanying issues. The conditions are often irreversible, but you can manage neuropathy through lifestyle, diet, and treatment. This article discusses the symptom and treatment of neuropathy so you can better understand your condition and work with your healthcare providers on a comprehensive care plan.

Common Causes Neuropathy

Neuropathy is nerve damage resulting from conditions such as:

  • Diabetes (most common)
  • Metabolic Disorders
  • Traumatic injury
  • Toxins
  • Infection

What Are the Symptoms of Neuropathy?

The symptoms may vary based on the causes. One of the main symptoms is permanent numbness. Other symptoms include prickling, tingling or burning sensations; sensitivity to touch; muscle weakness; dysfunctioning organs, paralysis; problems urinating; and sexual dysfunction.

For a better understanding of neuropathy, it’s important to understand that your central nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord, while the peripheral nervous system delivers messages between the CNS and the rest of the body.

Your peripheral nervous system consists of the somatic nervous system responsible for voluntary functions, such as moving your arms and legs, and an autonomic or involuntary nervous system that is responsible for functions like breathing, heartbeat, and digestion. Neuropathy may involve damage or disruption to the voluntary and involuntary nervous system.

Chiropractic Treatment for Neuropathy

The good news is that you can receive chiropractic care for painful, disruptive symptoms. Rather than masking your pain with medications, chiropractic care targets the causes of the condition to improve your overall health and wellness.

What To Expect With Neuropathy Treatment

If you have permanent damage due to a neuropathic condition, regular electrostimulation and massage can help with your symptoms. Other common treatment options include physical therapy,  chiropractic adjustments, and inflammation injections. During an evaluation, our team will ask about your current nutritional habits and help you understand how diet impacts your symptoms.
