What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a condition that refers to nerve damages or nerve defects of the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system may be damaged through any type of injury or even from something as simple as bad posture. Patients may experience mild to severe numbness, tingling sensations and loss of range of motion or intense sensitivity to touch in the area of the damage. Some patients can have worse conditions and they may experience burning pain, muscle wasting, organ malfunction or paralysis. We can help at CryoNext Integrative Health Care in Oviedo FL. where Dr. Robert Abraham proudly serves his community's chiropractic needs.
What is Diabetic Neuropathy?
Diabetic neuropathy is damaged that is caused in the blood vessels of the body due to having diabetes. This is caused by the improper blood supply to areas of the body and is most commonly felt in the extremities of the feet and hands. Diabetes is a metabolic and endocrine disorder with high blood sugar causing damages to organs through inadequate blood flow as well as tissue damages. Diabetics with neuropathy can find relief from the symptoms with our holistic and natural approach.
How Can a Chiropractor Help Neuropathy?
Your main nervous system includes the brain and spinal cord. Your spinal cord is protected by the vertebrae in your back. If your back is misaligned a vertebra may pinch a nerve resulting in cutting off feelings in your limbs or back. There are also certain modalities that we use at CryoNext Integrative Healthcare that increase blood flow to supply the nerves with blood, oxygen and nutrients they need to function.
The uneven pressure from a spine that is misaligned can cause your leg or foot to tingle, go numb or be in chronic pain without relief. A chiropractor can also make an adjustment of your spine and relieve the pressure on your spinal cord to decrease your pain and symptoms of diabetic neuropathy or any other kind of neuropathy. Other treatments include physical therapy, laser therapy, electrotherapy, individualized nutrition plans and inflammation injections, all of which are hand-tailored to your specific needs.
