Neuropathy Q & A

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy, is nerve damage in the body. Your nerves create an intricate system that sends and delivers messages between your body and your brain. If you have neuropathy, you may experience pain, weakness, or numbness. 

Nerve damage may develop as the result of an infection or an injury, or it might be a complication of another health condition. Diabetes is a chronic health problem that’s a leading cause of neuropathy.

There are medications to treat symptoms of neuropathy, but taking medication isn’t always the right answer. Finding the root cause of your nerve damage often makes treatment more effective, and it even has the power to reverse the condition.

What are the symptoms of neuropathy?

The nervous system has three main types of nerves: sensory, motor, and autonomic. Sensory nerves are responsible for sensations like touch. Motor nerves control the movement of muscles throughout the body, while autonomic nerves control natural functions like digestion and heart rate.

The symptoms you experience depend on the nerves that are damaged, but common signs of neuropathy often include:

  • Tingling or prickling in hands or feet
  • Throbbing or burning
  • Sharp jolts of pain
  • Lack of coordination
  • Muscle weakness
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Heat intolerance
  • Digestive problems

If you experience any of the above symptoms, it’s important to seek treatment. Determining the affected nerves and treating them helps limit your symptoms and prevent the condition from getting worse. 

How can neuropathy be treated?

Neuropathy therapy at Restorative Wellness Center focuses on eliminating pain and stimulating healing. You shouldn’t ignore the signs of neuropathy, as it can significantly affect your quality of life if it’s left untreated.

All the systems in your body are connected to each other. The team at Restorative Wellness Center begins neuropathy therapy by identifying the root cause of your nerve pain. Therapy utilizes state-of-the-art technology to improve blood flow to affected nerves, restoring balance to nerve signals.

Instead of prescribing medications that stop damaged nerves from sending signals to the rest of the body, neuropathy therapy focuses on healing the affected nerves. When the affected nerves get the blood flow and nutrients they need to heal, pain is minimized and balance is restored to the nervous system.
