Millions of people suffer from neuropathy, but many don’t know that chiropractic care can help. Advantage Chiropractic offers a unique approach to helping people with neuropathy. Our chiropractors are specially trained to treat this condition and can help you get your life back.
What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a health condition that involves damage to the nerves of the body, causing them to stop working as they should. If you suffer from neuropathy, you might experience a range of symptoms. This form of pain can be caused by diabetes, injury and sickness. For a third of sufferers, however, there is no identifiable source.
The most common symptoms are pain, stinging, numbness or tingling in the arms, hands, legs and feet. Other signs may include
- Burning pain or numbness
- The sensation of wearing a glove or sock
- Electric-like, sharp, shooting or jabbing pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Difficulty sleeping due to leg or foot pain
- Loss of coordination or balance
- Muscle weakness, cramping or twitching
- Difficulty moving arms or walking
- Unusual sweating
- Abnormal pulse or blood pressure

Common Questions About Seeing a Chiropractor for Neuropathy
What is the most effective treatment?
There are many effective neuropathy treatments available. For example, if a pinched nerve causes neuropathy, the best treatment may be chiropractic adjustments to relieve the pressure on the nerve. If the neuropathy is caused by diabetes, the best treatment may be medication to control blood sugar levels. And if an injury causes neuropathy, the best treatment may be physical therapy to help repair damaged nerves. One of our chiropractors will be able to determine the cause of your neuropathy and recommend a treatment plan to get relief from your symptoms.
What foods should I avoid?
To live with neuropathy, you must consider the foods you eat. Some foods can exacerbate your symptoms, while others can help to ease them. Sugary foods should be avoided because they can aggravate inflammation and pain. Processed foods and simple carbohydrates should also be avoided because they can cause blood sugar spikes that aggravate the condition. Instead, prioritize fresh fruits and veggies, lean protein, and healthy fats. These nutrient-dense foods will keep your nerves healthy and alleviate your symptoms.
Can neuropathy be corrected?
Neuropathy can be a challenging condition to manage, but the good news is that it is not always permanent. Neuropathy can be treated with chiropractic care and lifestyle changes in many cases. If you have neuropathy, or other related pain please contact us for more information about your treatment options. You can improve your symptoms and live a full and healthy life with the right care.
