Chiropractic Treatment Options for Neuropathy
Damage to the peripheral nerves that carry signals from the brain and spinal cord through the body results in neuropathy. This condition can cause chronic pain in the hands, feet, arms, and legs. If you or a loved one suffer from neuropathy, you know just how debilitating and uncomfortable it can be.
While conventional medicine can alleviate some symptoms with pain-relievers, chiropractors naturally treat the root cause of neuropathy to help repair sensory nerve damage. Using various therapies, they can help ease the discomfort caused by this disease and improve your quality of life.
Living with Neuropathy
Symptoms vary depending on the type and extent of nerve damage. Unfortunately, in some cases, the effects of neuropathy can be widespread and present in multiple areas of your body. These can include:
- Throbbing pain or numbness and tingling in extremities
- Weakness in one or more limbs that may affect the ability to walk or move
- Loss of balance, instability, or frequent falls
- Difficulty walking without assistance
- Sensitivity to touch and temperature
- Painful muscle twitches, spasms, cramps
Neuropathy Relief Through Chiropractic Care
Early and ongoing treatment can help reduce symptoms. Chiropractic care for neuropathy focuses on improving the body's natural healing mechanisms. Several treatment options are available, and the doctors at All Seasons Integrative Health will design a care plan tailored to your specific needs.
One of the most effective treatments for neuropathy is A-3 vibration therapy, which uses full-body vibrations to stimulate the nervous system. This increases circulation throughout your body and boosts tissue health. A-3 vibration therapy improves symptoms of pain, muscle strength, and postural control.
Class IV laser, or K-laser, therapy uses different wavelengths of light to accelerate tissue healing and regeneration. The focused energy from the laser heals damaged areas by enhancing circulation and lymph flow to reduce inflammation.
Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field (PEMF) Therapy uses low-intensity magnetic pulses to promote blood circulation. This helps to stimulate cellular growth and healthy nerve function.
Along with these treatments at the clinic, you will receive an individual care plan with action steps to take at home. This can include exercises, supplements like magnesium or probiotics, cold or hot showers, sunshine exposure, and sleep schedule management.
