Chiropractic Treatment of Neuropathy
The problem with neuropathy is that it doesn't usually show outward signs that would cause a layperson to immediately agree that something is wrong. Unlike a broken bone or a rash, neuropathy involves a malfunction or injury of the nerve network that connects the endpoint senses with the spine and brain. As a result, the peripheral nerves, those typically used to feel and sense in the feet, hands, skin, and similar, start becoming damaged and working incorrectly. The most common symptom tends to be painful sensations. That's why our team at Dr. Phillips' Chiropractic Nutrition & Wellness is here to help with neuropathy treatment.
Neuropathy can involve nerve damage. Nerve cells help control the body and provide us with our sensory system. However, when nerves are damaged, nerve systems have to remap themselves around the damage to restore function. It's not always a perfect process. And, in some cases, nerve damage continues. Neuropathy is where damaged nerves remain in their incorrect state. The symptoms end up feeling burning sensations, tingling pain, inability to touch things comfortably, and similar.
What makes neuropathy even more complicated is that the condition varies considerably from patient to patient. Medical responses often focus on the symptoms, since it's the easiest path to immediate relief. Unfortunately, it also sometimes doesn't help unless care is focused on treating the source. That's why working with our chiropractor may help treat the cause rather than just the symptoms.
Chiropractic Treatment for Neuropathy
The biggest step forward with a chiropractic approach is that the treatment procedure focuses on the cause versus just symptoms. The nervous system is part of a bigger whole. It's the communication system the body relies on, but it can't function without proper help. Our chiropractor can use adjustments for misaligned spinal bones to help take pressure off the nerve. This takes pressure off the nerve, causing neuropathy, and allows the body's connections to function again. The approach is non-invasive, does not involve pharmaceuticals, and is holistic in nature.
