What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a condition caused by the damage or destruction of nerve cells. Oftentimes, it is also a side effect of infections, hereditary conditions, autoimmune diseases, tumors, and more. Across the United States, roughly 20 million people suffer from symptoms that range from a mild tingling or burning to difficulty moving their arms or even atrophy. 

As Flint chiropractors, we focus on providing a comprehensive solution to the pain you feel. Our goal is to help your body function properly so that it can heal. When your body works for you, it relieves pain, improves your quality of life, and prevents problems before they become painful. 

The Symptoms of Neuropathy

In many cases, neuropathy begins with numbness or tingling in the fingers and toes. Over time, this numbness begins to spread. Additionally, you may feel sharp pains in your arms and legs. 

These are the early symptoms of peripheral neuropathy: 

  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Tingling

Eventually, these symptoms worsen, evolving into muscle spasms and difficulty with movement in the arms and legs. Left untreated, it can also impact your balance. 

This condition impacts different patients in different ways. How it impacts you depends on the nerves that sustain damage. 

  • Motor nerves
  • Sensory nerves
  • Autonomic nerves

Each type of nerve has a different job for your body. That’s why it is crucial to document any symptoms you experience prior to your appointment. While we conduct a thorough physical and neurological evaluation, the more information our team has the better. 

When this condition impacts your ability to balance, it is vital to seek treatment as soon as possible. Much like vertigo, loss of balance due to a nervous issue can put you in harm’s way. 

Treating This Condition

As mentioned above, peripheral neuropathy may be a side effect of another medical condition. That’s why our Flint chiropractors place an emphasis on personalized, holistic treatment. We tailor your treatment plan to address the underlying condition. 

When we begin to address this source of the problem, we reduce its impact on your nerves. Unfortunately, this condition can be quite severe and painful. The most common forms are the following: 

Each of these is quite prevalent among adults in America. With this in mind, it’s possible for people to suffer without knowing they have it. 

In order to treat nerve pain, many patients seek relief from alternative medicine. Chiropractic care is one of the preferred options for treatment because it helps to correct underlying causes and slows the progression of their medical condition. At Hood Health & Wellness, we help patients find a therapeutic, holistic approach to treatment for their pain and other symptoms.
