What is neuropathy? Neuropathy is a condition in which nerve damage or disease causes sensations of numbness and tingling in the feet or hands. The peripheral nervous system is what sends messages of sensation or pain to the brain from your extremities. Hence, damage to this system changes how the messages are sent, often in extremely painful ways that can move beyond just a tingling or numbness in the hands and feet. Nearly all patients with neuropathy in the feet also have lower back issues.
Additionally, because the central nervous system travels through the spine to the brain, the neuropathy can be local, peripheral, or even cranial. Left untreated, this can lead to dizziness, lack of motor control, sharp, stabbing pain, and other issues. The good news is neuropathy is often readily treatable with the all-natural means at our disposal. Many experience relief of their symptoms through our treatments that do not require medication or surgery. Our dedicated doctors are committed to providing you with the best treatment plan to get you back to a life without symptoms.
What Causes Neuropathy?
Neuropathy can have a wide-ranging number of causes because its roots are in either damage or disease. Injuries from falls or auto accidents or similar traumas can cause nerve damage, as can more common injuries such as repetitive stress. Decreased blood flow, called ischemia, often related to injury or circulation issues, can damage nerves and cause neuropathy pain.
In addition to damage from injury, neuropathy can be caused by certain medications, alcohol, or vitamin deficiencies. Beyond these sources of problems, many diseases carry with them the added effect of causing neuropathy. Diabetes, in particular, can cause peripheral neuropathy - that of the hands and feet, or proximal neuropathy - that of the arms and legs. Certain autoimmune diseases can similarly cause neuropathic pain by damaging the nerve tissue, and other diseases like Lyme disease can impact the nerves. Luckily, regardless of the cause, we do have paths to relief that does not involve invasive surgery. Our natural medicine approaches can address many of these symptoms in ways that use the body’s own healing factors to bring relief.
