Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a problem with the nerves that carry information to and from the brain and spinal nerves. This “nerve damage” disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. It is like the body’s electrical wiring system breaking down, causing numbness, pain, weakness and poor coordination.

The 7 signs of Peripheral Neuropathy are:

  • Numbness
  • Burning Feet
  • Cramping
  • Sharp Electric Pain
  • Pain When Walking

Here’s how we take a Different Approach-

Neurologically-

  • We test to make sure the brain and brain stem are functioning normally
  • We examine the spine to determine the presence of Disc Lesions, Arthritis, Facet Syndrome, and Nerve Impingements
  • We correct any abnormalities with Upper Cervical Brain Stem Chiropractic, Spinal Decompression, and Full Spine Chiropractic Care.

Metabolically-

  • We do functional blood chemistry/functional nutrition
  • We look for conditions such as diabetes, or inflammation that may impair neurologic function and ability
