Chiropractic Treatment for Neuropathy
A medical condition that results in damaged or destroyed nerve cells is known as neuropathy. It is normally a side effect associated with infections, tumors, hereditary conditions, and autoimmune diseases. It affects roughly 20 million people in the U.S. alone. Symptoms range from mild tingling to muscle spasms. Other people may even have difficulty moving their arms or legs. The good news is that there is effective chiropractic treatment for neuropathy available. At Sunnyside Wellness & Chiropractic Center, we provide residents of Fresno and Clovis with chiropractic care for neuropathy.
Neuropathy can either be caused by various medical conditions. Treatment focuses on determining the underlying cause of neuropathy and addressing it through chiropractic care. People that suffer from neuropathy know just how painful and severe it can be. Diabetic neuropathy, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica are some of the most common forms of neuropathy. It is most commonly seen in adults, though it can appear in patients of all ages.
Alternative medicine is a preferred route of nerve pain treatment for many patients. Chiropractic care is one of the most common treatments for neuropathy. This is because chiropractic care works to slow the progression of the condition itself. Chiropractic care is also known as an all-natural treatment option that relieves nerve pressure, increases circulation, and enhances the body’s natural healing process.
Chiropractic care targets the underlying conditions that result in nerve pain. It also reduces the inflammation that results from neuropathy. Many patients turn to chiropractic care because they refuse to depend on medication. Treatment plans focus on meeting the needs of each patient. For example, treatments may focus on both therapies and exercises for a patient who is dealing with nerve pain in their lower extremities. The healing will take place in the joints of the hips, knees, and ankles, as well as the leg muscles.
Chiropractic care is non-invasive and can help with:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Stiff muscles
- Joint pain
- Blood circulation
- Internal organ function
- Neuropathy in peripheral nerves
Care from a chiropractor for neuropathy works to increase blood flow to the nerves, decrease brain-based pain, stimulate damaged nerves, and enable the body to repair itself. The goal of chiropractic care is to not mask the symptoms but to eliminate the condition itself.
