Neuropathy or neuropathic pain is a medical disorder caused by damage to your nerves. Neuropathy affects thousands of people in California, and if you suspect that you might have nerve damage, your first move is to get an accurate diagnosis. We do more than diagnose your symptoms; our state-of-the-art medical clinic provides innovative regenerative medicine that treats the root cause of your pain.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy affects your nervous system, the network of nerves that transmits information from your nervous system to the rest of your body. Chronic pain is the most common symptom of nerve damage.
Conditions associated with neuropathy include:
- Numbness in feet or hands
- Tingling in feet or hands
- Inability to feel with hands or feet
- Muscle weakness
- Inability to feel pain
- Burning sensations
- Freezing pain down the nerves
- Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Difficulty maintaining balance
Since neuropathy pain does not always respond well to conventional painkillers, it’s sometimes difficult to find relief. Our all-natural, non-surgical pain relief treatment gives you pain relief by treating the underlying cause of your nerve damage.
Platelet-rich plasma injections, another effective regenerative medicine therapy for neuropathy, are prepared from a sample of your blood. When your growth factor-rich platelets are concentrated and reinjected into damaged tissue, a process of healing and rejuvenation is ignited in your body. PRP gives you long-term relief from nerve pain as well as back pain that is commonly associated with neuropathy.
Regular chiropractic adjustments help to relax your spine and reduce your pain symptoms without medication. Manual adjustments can even help with neuropathy in the feet and hands since the correct alignment of your spine and joints affects your whole body.
Causes of Neuropathy
Diabetes is one of the most common causes of nerve damage, but nerve damage is also caused by trauma, such as a car crash or sports-related injury.
Other causes include:
- Metabolic disorders
- Exposure to toxins and heavy metals
- Tumors that pressure your nerve endings
- Chronic diseases like HIV, AIDS, and hypothyroidism
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
- B vitamin deficiencies
- Poor posture
- Daily activities that affect your spine
