Neuropathy

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a painful condition that develops when your peripheral nerves — the nerves extending from your spinal cord into your body — are damaged. It causes various symptoms, including:

  • Pain
  • Numbness
  • Weakness
  • Twitching
  • Cramps
  • Lost coordination
  • Lost temperature sensitivity


Neuropathy can also cause symptoms like reduced temperature regulation, blood pressure problems, and gastrointestinal symptoms if it affects your autonomic nerves. 

What causes neuropathy?

Diabetes is the most common cause of neuropathy. You might also develop neuropathy as the result of a physical injury, vascular health problems like peripheral artery disease, and systemic autoimmune diseases.

Hormone imbalances and nutritional deficiencies can also cause neuropathy. You might also develop the condition as a result of kidney disease, liver disease, tumors, or chemotherapy.

You should make an appointment at Medical Wellness Group if you have any persistent pain that interferes with your overall health, mobility, or quality of life. The team provides thorough exams to assess your condition and identify the best way to manage your condition, reduce your pain, and restore your quality of life. 

How do you treat neuropathy?

Chiropractic care is holistic, aiming to align all the systems of your body for optimal functionality. After your initial consultation, your provider creates a customized treatment plan that might include:

Chiropractic care

Chiropractic adjustments correct the alignment of your spine and other joints in your body, which can reduce inflammation and muscle tension that can compress your nerves. All of your body systems work together in a careful balance. Correcting your musculoskeletal system can improve functionality throughout your body.

Your provider also uses soft tissue manipulation and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) treatment to relieve your symptoms and restore your overall health. 

DRX9000™ True Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression System

Spinal decompression creates space and negative suction within your spine, correcting issues like herniated or bulging discs, which can compress your nerves and contribute to neuropathy symptoms. 

Regenerative medicine

Medical Wellness Group also offers regenerative medicine treatments such as stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. Regenerative medicine stimulates your body’s ability to heal itself, including your nerve cells.
