Neuropathy Treatment

Chiropractic Treatment for Neuropathy At Apex Wellness Center

Neuropathy is a condition that can occur with diabetes and other medical conditions. Often called peripheral neuropathy because it primarily affects the extremities, it is typically managed with medications. However, chiropractic treatment may also be helpful for many patients. Here’s what you need to know about neuropathy and chiropractic, courtesy of the Apex Wellness Center in Dallas, TX.

What is Neuropathy?

Also known as peripheral neuritis, this condition affects the nerves of the extremities. The nervous system includes voluntary nerves – the sort we use when we move – and involuntary nerves that control functions like breathing, digestion, and sensation. Neuropathy affects the second kind of nerve and may even interfere with the brain's ability to interpret nerve signals. It is not a reversible condition, but good management can help patients live with this problem. Neuropathy is most common in diabetes, but can also occur with autoimmune disorders, tumors, nutritional imbalances or infections. It may even be hereditary in some cases.

Symptoms of Neuropathy

The symptoms of neuropathy are usually subtle and the condition develops over time. It begins in fingertips and/or toes and progresses toward the body core. Numbness, tickling or tingling sensations in the extremities are common. Some people report a sensation of extreme coldness as if they were exposed to freezing weather. Pain and throbbing may also occur. Neuropathy can affect both sensory and motor nerves, so it can affect balance and coordination, or cause muscle weakness or increased sensitivity to touch. Diminished sensation may lead to injury from tight shoes or not realizing you have stubbed a toe.

How Can Chiropractic Help Neuropathy?

While medications may improve the symptoms of neuropathy, they do not affect a cure and often have side effects. Chiropractic treatment is drug-free. The other major difference is that chiropractic is meant to improve overall health, not just manage symptoms. Attention to diet, exercise, and sleep is part of the treatment process. For example, the use of supplements like alpha lipoic acid, acetyl l carnitine, and vitamin B12 has been shown to improve nerve function. Cold laser therapy can reduce inflammation and help relieve pain. Spinal manipulation restores proper alignment, which improves nervous system function. Massage, trigger point treatments, and aromatherapy can relieve stress and relax tense, painful muscles.
