Peripheral Neuropathy is a painful condition which affects thousands of people each year in the United States of America. It occurs when the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body (Peripheral Nerves) become damaged or diseased.  In addition to severe pain, this type of nerve interruption can impair muscle movement and diminish normal feeling in the legs and arms.

Peripheral Neuropathy has many causes including disease, diabetes, poor nutrition and infection. In some cases the cause remains unknown, this is known as idiopathic neuropathy.  If diagnosed early, peripheral neuropathy can often be controlled.

Stop relying on anti-seizure, anti-depressant and pain medications to mask your symptoms.

We help our patients with their peripheral neuropathy symptoms by utilizing a combination of advanced therapies including: The Neuromed-Electro Analgesia System, Neurolight Treatment, Cold Laser and Vibration Therapy; all of which work to restore proper function to the nerves and eliminate the numbness, tingling and pain.

Guide to Peripheral Neuropathy and How It’s Treated Through Chiropractic Care

Peripheral neuropathy is an umbrella term that is used to describe damage to and malfunction of the peripheral nerves. The peripheral nerves are those located outside of the spinal cord and brain. These particular nerves play a role in various functions of the body, including:

  • Digestion
  • Blood pressure
  • Body temperature
  • Bowel and bladder function
  • Function of the extremities

When damage occurs to these nerves, it can cause a wide range of symptoms, including but not limited to:

  • Pain, numbness, tingling, or burning in the arms, hands, legs, and feet
  • Inability to feel your feet move
  • Balance issues
  • Vision changes
  • Poor digestion
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Excessive sweating
  • Muscle cramps

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by several issues, including certain health conditions like diabetes and kidney problems. It can also be the result of nerve compression.

Chiropractic Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy

This condition, its causes, and the resulting symptoms can vary so widely that one single treatment plan will not suit every patient. Dr. Boroditsky will work with patients at Minnesota Chiropractic and Rehabilitation in Plymouth, MN, to gain a comprehensive understanding on an individualized basis. He will then work to develop a peripheral neuropathy treatment plan to address the needs of that individual.

Chiropractic adjustments and spinal decompression can be effective in treating the condition, as they relieve any undue pressure from the nerves. Cold laser therapy is a technique that has proven to stimulate nerves, cause cellular regeneration, and improve blood flow, all of which can reduce or eliminate symptoms.

Other soft tissue techniques, such as massage therapy and electrical muscle stimulation, can help improve blood flow and reduce swelling in damaged areas. Therapeutic exercises can be beneficial for helping restore balance, flexibility, and mobility. Nutritional guidance can empower you to eat the best foods for nerve and general health.

These are just a few examples of potential treatments. However, the specific techniques provided will depend on your needs, abilities, and symptoms.
