When we think about nerves and neuropathic treatment, it might seem hard to believe that they can be healed. But peripheral neuropathy can, in fact, be healed! The reason that it seems so unlikely lies in the fact that the nerves need to be healed, but whatever caused the nerve damage also needs to be paid attention to. Doing so is solved by answering what the underlying cause of the nerve damage is, how severe the damage is, and what types of nerve fibers are damaged. Depending on how extensive the nerve damage is, the amount of treatment will also change (more severe nerve damage will take longer to heal than minor nerve damage).

Helping four main areas with one main goal.

Neuropathic treatment focuses on four main areas: optimizing the environment within the body so that nerves can heal; increasing the blood flow to the nerves so they get everything they need; stimulating the nerves that are damaged; as well as decreasing the pain signals being sent to the brain.

Are you dealing with chronic pain and feel like you’ve tried every known method under the sun to help with it? Neuropathic treatments could be the answer to your prayers that you’ve been looking for!

Neuropathy FAQs

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Alright, let’s break it down. Peripheral neuropathy is a term used in the medical world to describe various nerve-related injuries and diseases. When someone says you have peripheral neuropathy, it means that one or more of your nerves have taken a hit and aren’t doing their job of sending and receiving signals to and from your brain. This can happen due to conditions like diabetes, repetitive motion injuries, or sudden accidents. Think of carpal tunnel syndrome – it’s a pretty common example of this.

What are the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy?

Okay, picture this: you might feel tingling, numbness, weakness, or even a loss of feeling. Now, here’s the thing—these symptoms can be a bit different for each person, depending on how much damage we’re talking about. Typically, these symptoms start slow and steady. Over time, that tingling or numbness you might feel in your hands or feet can spread to your arms and legs, and sometimes, it might turn into a sharper, burning pain. And if those motor nerves take a hit, you might notice some muscle weakness or even paralysis.

What are the treatment options for Peripheral Neuropathy?

So, treating peripheral neuropathy really depends on what’s causing it. For example, if tight or inflamed muscles are putting pressure on your nerves, it can lead to some irritation. That’s where massage and trigger point therapy step in—that helps get the blood flowing and supports those chiropractic adjustments, which can dial back down the pain and stress levels. Also, if there are joints out of whack in your extremities or back, it can mess with the signals your nerves are sending to your brain. Fixing those misalignments can really help calm down any interference aggravating your peripheral neuropathy. Finally, if it’s caused by a lack of certain nutrients or an ongoing health issue, we might suggest treatments that include
getting your nutrition game on point to give your body the build blocks it needs for that extra push to heal itself.

Can physical therapy aid in treating Peripheral Neuropathy?

Alright, so for a lot of folks, physical therapy is like the sidekick to chiropractic adjustments when it comes to tackling peripheral neuropathy. The goal of these physical therapy sessions is two-fold: to get those limbs moving smoothly with some gentle stretches and to strengthen those muscles with exercises and weights. Depending on how severe your peripheral neuropathy is, this therapy can help get you back in the game with improved mobility, strength, and balance. We’ll share helpful resources after your examination for a tailor-made fit.

Can StemWave therapy treat Peripheral Neuropathy?

SoftWave therapy is a safe and effective treatment option for small fiber sensory neuropathy. By promoting blood flow, stimulating the body’s natural healing process, and reducing inflammation, SoftWave therapy can improve nerve function and alleviate symptoms.
