Peripheral Neuropathy Pain and Treatment

Peripheral Neuropathy is a disorder in which the nerves don’t function properly due to an injury or degeneration. Your nerves send signals that you’re in pain when in reality, nothing is hurting you. Peripheral Neuropathy can be a sign of something serious like an unknown injury or an infection. While many people take prescription medications to treat their pain, chiropractic care can be a non-invasive and drug-free solution to your peripheral neuropathy pain. There are multiple types of peripheral neuropathy. Each can be treated differently depending on how severe the pain is and where the pain is located within the body. Dr. Robitaille at Orlando Injury Medicine is here to help you.


The Main Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy:

  • Tingling in the hands or feet
  • Stabbing pains in the limbs, hands, feet, or back
  • Loss of control in your hands
  • Weakness in the arms or legs
  • Numbness in the hands and feet
  • Stiff neck and muscles

Some treatments include over-the-counter pain medication and anti-seizure medications. Anti-depressants can also be used to treat pain that is associated with peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes can also cause nerve pain and managing blood sugar levels and blood pressure can help sufferers find some relief.

Many people have sought out chiropractic care to treat their symptoms of peripheral neuropathy. Chiropractors target the source of the pain rather than mask it with pain medications. While this isn’t a cure, studies have shown that chiropractic care can greatly reduce the pain associated with this disorder.

Chiropractors target the specific system that is creating the pain. The right spinal adjustments and neck adjustments can reduce if not eliminate the pain completely. Chiropractors can perform other adjustments that help release anti-inflammatory hormones throughout the body. Blood flow will also be increased to the nerves and tissues, healing them faster. We can also recommend changes in diet and your lifestyle which may relieve some of the pain that is associated with peripheral neuropathy.
