Peripheral nerves are responsible for carrying information from the brain and the spinal cord to the rest of the body and vice versa. Peripheral neuropathy is a disorder of these nerves which prevents the smooth flow of communication and thereby disrupting regular bodily functions. This causes muscle impairment, prevents normal limb sensations and causes debilitating pain. It may be damage to one or multiple nerves but indirectly affect all the nerves in the body. Peripheral Neuropathy treatment focuses on chiropractic adjustments in the spine and central nervous system so that these disruptions are smoothened out and the normal functions are restored.

Peripheral Neuropathy treatment looks deep into the causes to determine its exact nature and level of pain. It can be caused by a number of factors like –

  • Autoimmune diseases like lupus, Guillain-Barre syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis.
  • Diabetes
  • Exposure to toxic and hazardous substances
  • Viral or bacterial infections
  • Exposure to radiations during chemotherapy
  • Certain drugs and medications
  • Inherited disorders
  • Trauma or pressure on the nerve from accidents and injuries and poor postures
  • Tumors
  • Alcoholism
  • Vitamin deficiencies(B-1, B-6 and B-12) along with Vitamin E and Niacin
  • Liver disorders
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Poor blood flow to the legs
  • Underactive thyroid gland
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Exposure to extreme cold weather

The different nerve types involved in peripheral neuropathy are sensory, motor and autonomic nerves. Doctors specializing in functional Peripheral Neuropathy treatment can diagnose the severity of the case by the size of the nerve fibers involved. The symptoms show themselves gradually with the patient feeling a tingling or prickling sensation in the toes or fingers. Slowly this tingling sensation spreads upwards the limbs and intensifies the discomfort with a burning sensation along with a shooting pain. In severe cases mobility is restricted that they cannot move about without wheelchair or help. It also leads to weakness and loss of balance, erratic heart rate and blood pressure, sweating as well as irregular bowel symptoms.

Advanced and functional treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy

Functionalneurology focuses on spinal adjustments to correct the interruptions that the peripheral nerves cause due to damage or disease. The patient is first taken through a series of tests which are then evaluated along with the patient’s medical history (which includes family history). This is important to establish the exact cause of peripheral neuropathy as the condition may vary from person to person.

Advanced chiropractic care blends in with clinical nutrition to heal the body from in and out. In situations where it is needed direct intervention also takes place but this treatment is mostly non-invasive. It is geared towards complete wellness plan which removes pain and restores normalcy.
