Peripheral Neuropathy Q & A

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy occurs when your peripheral nerves, the nerves that travel to your legs and arms, get damaged and no longer function properly. Diabetes is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy, as 60-70% of people with diabetes develop this debilitating condition.

Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Decreased sensation in toes and fingers
  • Numbness, prickling, or tingling in hands, feet, legs, or arms
  • Freezing or burning pain
  • Sharp, throbbing, or jabbing pain
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Lack of coordination
  • Muscle weakness
  • Heat intolerance
  • Digestive, bladder, or bowel problems
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

You may notice mild symptoms that gradually progress over time if left untreated.

What causes peripheral neuropathy?

While diabetes is the most common cause of peripheral neuropathy, various other health conditions can also lead to this condition, such as:

  • Tumors
  • Bone marrow disorders
  • Arthritis
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Exposure to toxins
  • Infections
  • Nerve pressure or trauma
  • Alcoholism
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Neurological diseases

Some medications and certain chronic diseases like connective tissue disorders, liver disease, kidney disease, and hypothyroidism can also cause peripheral neuropathy.

What is the treatment for peripheral neuropathy?

The experienced staff at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers offers numerous holistic treatments to ease peripheral neuropathy symptoms or lower your risk for developing them, such as:

E-stim

Providers at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers offer electrical stimulation, or e-stim, to ease nerve pain with a device that delivers painless electrical pulses to your nerves.

Nutritional counseling

Dr. Randall and his team offer nutrition counseling to reduce symptoms of or avoid peripheral neuropathy. Making dietary changes helps control diabetes, and eating healthy ensures you’re getting plenty of B vitamins and vitamin E, nutrients crucial for nerve health.

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractors at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers use chiropractic care to ease neuropathy symptoms, improve posture, realign the spine, and improve overall health and wellness.

Blood sugar management

Managing blood sugar lowers your risk for diabetes complications, including peripheral neuropathy. The team at Advanced Integrated Medical Centers works with you to properly manage diabetes, monitor blood sugar, make dietary changes, and improve blood sugar control.
