Chiropractic Care for Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy refers to the condition that results when nerves that carry messages to and from the brain and spinal cord from and to the rest of the body are damaged or diseased. These damaged nerves interrupt communication between the brain and the rest of the body, which can impair movement in the muscles, prevent normal sensation in the arms and legs, and cause pain. The damage to a peripheral nerve is called mononeuropathy and is usually caused by some sort of trauma from an accident.
It is common for people with peripheral neuropathy to be subjected to various degrees of pain. At 1st Place Chiropractic in St. Charles, our goal is to help manage the condition that is causing your neuropathy and help you find relief.
People with peripheral neuropathy describe their pain as stabbing, burning, or tingling, and they can also lose sensation in their arms and legs. Neuropathy can affect the:
• Sensory nerves: Nerves that control sensation, and injury to these nerves can cause tingling, numbness, or weakness in the feet and hands.
• Motor nerves: Nerves that help with power and movement. Any sort of damage can cause weakening of the feet and hands.
• Autonomic nerves: Nerves that control body systems like the digestive or cardiovascular system. Damage to these nerves can negatively affect heart rate, blood pressure, and other functions.
