What is Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a degenerative nerve condition that is often overlooked until it’s too late to treat effectively. Most people suffering from peripheral neuropathy experience numbness in their hands or feet, or strange nerve pains described as ‘burning’ or ‘shooting pains.’ Common medical treatment consists of anti-epileptic prescription drugs. Unfortunately, these medications only mask the pain temporarily and they affect all nerves, not just the ones impacted by neuropathy.

There are numerous causes for neuropathy, ranging from diabetes to chemotherapy treatment, and nerve compression syndromes. Most cases are diagnosed as idiopathic, meaning that the cause is unknown. Fortunately, recent advances in treatment are offering relief even for idiopathic peripheral neuropathy sufferers. For many patients, our treatments are able to stop the progression of nerve damage and reverse the effects of degeneration. Contact Cordima Chiropractic Center to learn more about our non-surgical and drug-free neuropathy treatments.

Regardless of the cause, our protocol helps to restore the function of nerves by pulsing electrical signals through the area of impaired function, increase circulation and create new blood vessels with Lasers, and a complete program of proper nutrition, nitric oxide boosting, exercises, acupressure points, and home therapy advice.
