Neuropathy Treatment San Diego
What Is Peripheral Neuropathy? Peripheral Neuropathy involves an array of disorders, which occur when the nervous system sustains nerve damage. Roughly 30% of Neuropathy cases are considered idiopathic, which means they are of unknown cause. Another 30% of neuropathies are due to diabetes. About 50% of people with diabetes develop some Neuropathy. The remaining cases have several possible causes, including traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic conditions, exposure to toxins, nutritional deficiency, alcoholism, autoimmune diseases, and inherited disorders.
It is common for people with Peripheral Neuropathy to be subjugated to various degrees of pain and life-altering symptoms. At Hifai Chiropractic in San Diego, our goal is to help manage the condition causing your Neuropathy and help you find relief. While it is essential to identify the type of pain medication that will work best to manage your Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms, it is also vital to ensure that the treatment discussed works with your body chemistry and works well with other therapies.
Benefits Of Neuropathy Treatment
Neuropathy can affect sensory nerves, nerves that control sensation; injury to these nerves can cause tingling, numbness, or weakness in limbs. It also can affect motor nerves, nerves that help with power and movement; any damage can cause weakening of the feet and hands. And also autonomic nerves, nerves that control body systems like the digestive or cardiovascular system; damage to these nerves can negatively affect heart rate, blood pressure, and other functions.
Treating your Neuropathy can be beneficial in many ways, such as:
- Reducing numbness and tingling
- Reducing stabbing and burning pain
- Reducing pins and needles sensations
- Improving balance
- Improving cognitive functions
- Retraining nerve pathways
- Reducing Chronic Cancer Pain
How Neuropathy Treatment Works
Generally, a neurologist will begin treatment by putting the patient through a detailed medical exam to determine the severity of the Neuropathy. Different tests are given to patients to assess the state and cause of the nerve damage. Once the cause is established and the area of the nerve damage is found, our doctor will determine what sort of treatment is needed to control the symptoms. In some cases, the root of the nerve damage is eliminated.
