What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Do you ever feel like you have pins and needles in your feet? You may be suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy

You and 20 million other Americans.

Here at Modern Chiropractic, our aim is to remove nerve interference and to strike a balance in your physiology in search of your optimal health using functional medicine combined with your body’s own inherent recuperative powers. Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that arises from trauma to the peripheral nervous system and can cause numbness, tingling, burning and sharp pain in the hands, feet and toes and even restless leg syndrome.

The peripheral nerve is extensive and runs from your spine all the way to your extremities, namely your hands, feet and toes. If the small nerves in this area become damaged, this can cause a raft of problems. To combat the effects of peripheral neuropathy, we use a combination of laser treatment, nutritional and chiropractic care that we hope will restore your quality of life. We have encountered so many patients who haven’t a clue where to turn or who to talk to about peripheral neuropathy and have tried a plethora of drugs and treatments with little or no success. Peripheral neuropathy is typified by a numbness, tingling, burning and sharp pain that can be a nightmare to endure.

What Causes Neuropathic Pain?

Sometimes there seems to be no obvious trigger for neuropathic pain. It could be due, in part to a connection with some illnesses and diseases that include:

  • Diabetes
  • Alcoholism
  • Shingles
  • Amputation
  • HIV
  • Chemotherapy
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Multiple myelomas
  • Arthritis in the spine
  • Nerve or spinal cord compression from herniated discs

But rest assured, we will do everything in our power to formulate a treatment plan that will alleviate or heal the effects of peripheral neuropathy and its associated symptoms.
