Neuropathy: Symptoms, Causes & Treatments

Neuropathy casts a shadow over countless lives, ushering in numbness, tingling, and pain that disrupt daily existence.

This condition, which affects the nerves, encompasses a spectrum of symptoms that can profoundly impact one’s quality of life.

At West Coast Integrative Wellness Center, we recognize the multifaceted nature of neuropathy and offer a comprehensive array of innovative treatments to address its diverse manifestations.

Decoding the Symptoms of Neuropathy

Neuropathy manifests through an array of symptoms, contingent upon the nerves affected. Individuals grappling with neuropathy may experience:

  • Numbness or tingling sensations in the extremities
  • Burning or shooting pain in the affected regions
  • Muscle weakness or compromised coordination
  • Heightened sensitivity to touch or temperature fluctuations
  • Diminished reflexes
  • Alterations in skin color or texture
  • Sleep disturbances attributable to discomfort or pain

Understanding the Origins of Neuropathy

Neuropathy can stem from a myriad of underlying causes, including:

  • Diabetes: Elevated blood sugar levels can inflict damage upon the body’s nerves, paving the way for neuropathic symptoms.
  • Trauma or Injury: Physical trauma or injury to the nerves can incite neuropathy.
  • Autoimmune Disorders: Conditions such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis may trigger inflammation that compromises nerve function.
  • Infections: Certain infections, such as HIV or Lyme disease, have been implicated in the onset of neuropathic symptoms.
  • Toxin Exposure: Exposure to harmful chemicals like lead or mercury can inflict damage upon the nerves, precipitating neuropathy.
  • Nutritional Deficiencies: Inadequate intake of essential vitamins and nutrients, such as vitamin B12, can precipitate neuropathic symptoms.

Treatment Options for Neuropathy at West Coast Integrative Wellness Center

At West Coast Integrative Wellness Center, we’re committed to pioneering treatments that transcend conventional modalities, offering hope and relief to those grappling with neuropathy.

Our innovative treatment options include:

  • PRP Therapy: Leveraging the healing potential of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), this minimally invasive procedure entails injecting concentrated platelets into damaged tissues, fostering accelerated healing and long-term relief from neuropathic pain.
  • Chiropractic Care: Our chiropractic interventions encompass manual adjustments aimed at alleviating nerve compression, enhancing blood flow, and mitigating inflammation. By addressing the root cause of neuropathic discomfort, chiropractic care empowers individuals to reclaim their vitality and mobility.
  • Physical Therapy: Tailored physical therapy regimens serve to bolster muscle strength, enhance flexibility, and alleviate pain associated with neuropathy. Through personalized exercise programs, individuals can manage neuropathic symptoms and enhance their overall well-being.
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): Harnessing the power of electrical impulses, TENS therapy offers a non-invasive means of pain relief by stimulating the affected nerves and enhancing circulation. Whether administered in-office or at home, TENS therapy holds promise in ameliorating neuropathic symptoms.
  • Lifestyle Modifications: Embracing lifestyle changes such as smoking cessation, adopting a nutritious diet, and engaging in regular exercise can fortify nerve health and mitigate the impact of neuropathy on daily life.
