Are you experiencing debilitating pain, tingling and numbness in your feet and hands? They are likely caused by Peripheral Neuropathy. Skyline Health Group offering Peripheral Neuropathy treatment in Van Nuys, Dr. Anthony Silva, DC follows a whole-body approach to peripheral neuropathy treatment. He can help you understand the root cause of your neuropathy, whether that’s an injury, uncontrolled diabetes, or nutritional deficiencies and what steps you can take to improve your health condition.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral Neuropathy can occur without any warning signs. It is caused when peripheral nerves going from the brain and spinal cord to the arms, hands, legs, and feet are damaged or destroyed. They stop carrying messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This interruption in communication between the brain and other parts of the body can impair muscle movement, prevent normal sensation in the arms and legs, and cause pain.  Some common sign & symptoms:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling or prickling in your feet or hands
  • Sharp, jabbing, throbbing, freezing or burning pain
  • Extreme sensitivity to touch
  • Loss of balance
  • Muscle weakness or dysfunction if motor nerves are affected

According to a study an estimated 30 million Americans suffer from some or the other type of Peripheral Neuropathy.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy:

  • Trauma or pressure on the nerve
  • Chemo-Induced Neuropathy
  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Inherited disorders
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Protein Abnormalities
  • Infections
  • Kidney failure
  • Tumors
  • Chronic Alcoholism

In a number of cases, no cause can be identified it is called Idiopathic Neuropathy.

Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy:

The conventional treatment option available for peripheral neuropathy includes medication to alleviate its symptoms. Prescription drugs such as Gabapentin, Neurontin, Lyrica and Cymbalta are most commonly used for neuropathy treatment. Unfortunately, these prescription drugs may relieve the pain that neuropathy can cause, but they won’t treat the underlying conditions. However, chiropractic care offer sufferers a non-invasive, drug-free yet effective way to treat this condition.
