Peripheral neuropathy is a common disorder affecting over 20 million Americans (typically older adults).  Surgery and prescription drugs have been a go-to treatment for doctors over the years. Today’s widespread opioid crisis has left many patients searching for alternative solutions. Chiropractic care is a non-invasive, drug-free alternative to treat chronic conditions such as peripheral neuropathy.

 

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

The peripheral nervous system is a network that sends signals between the central nervous system and other parts of the body.  Peripheral neuropathy refers to a range of different conditions that include damage to the peripheral nervous system. Neuropathy can involve the damage of a single nerve or multiple nerves. Symptoms, while rarely life threatening, can range from mild to severe.  Common medications prescribed for this condition include Gabapentin and Cymbalta.

 

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

There are many causes of neuropathy, including autoimmune disorders, tumors, toxins, injury or infection.  One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes.  Other causes include herniated discs, spinal stenosis, chemotherapy and cholesterol lowering medications. Genetics also play a part in peripheral neuropathy. Almost one third of cases are from an unknown cause.

 

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Neuropathy can affect the nerves that control muscle movement and detect sensation.  They also affect organs such as the heart, bladder, and intestines. Symptoms may include weakness, numbness, or tingling in the hands and feet. Other symptoms include;

  • Stiffness in the hands or feet

  • Fatigue or restless legs
