What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system — the nerves between the brain and spinal cord and every other part of the body. (Neuropathy means nerve disease or damage.) Symptoms can range from numbness or tingling, to pricking sensations (paresthesia), or muscle weakness. Severe symptoms may include burning pain (especially at night), muscle wasting, paralysis, or organ or gland dysfunction. Damage to nerves may impair digestion, sweating, sexual function, and urination. Call our office and ask about our special peripheral neuropathy program.

What causes peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy may be either inherited or acquired through disease processes or trauma. In many cases, however, a specific cause cannot be identified. Physical injury or sudden trauma and repetitive stress are the most common cause of acquired nerve injury. Diseases or disorders and their related processes (such as inflammation) can be associated with peripheral neuropathy. Metabolic disorders such as Diabetes, hormone imbalances such as thyroid hormones and growth hormone, Also small vessel disease, autoimmune diseases, kidney disorders, cancers, neuromas, infections, toxins, medication toxicity, and alcohol. Call our office for a free report on peripheral neuropathy.

What are conservative approaches to peripheral neuropathy?

 

If you or someone you love suffers with peripheral neuropathy you know that medications like Gabapentin, Neurontin, Lyrica or Cymbalta are the medications given you. The relief is usually temporary. Our approach is to determine: 1. What is the underlying cause? 2. How much nerve damage has been sustained? 3. How much treatment will be required? Our three main goals of management are: 1. Increase blood flow. 2. Stimulate small fiber nerves. 3. Decrease brain based pain. If you would like a free report and video on our methods call our office.
