Chiropractic Care for Peripheral Neuropathy

Written By Caputo Chiropractic Center on September 30, 2020

rsz chiropractic3Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the nerves that make up the intricate network connecting the brain and the spinal cord to the skin, muscles, internal organs, and other parts of the body are damaged.

In the United States, more than 20 million people suffer from some form of peripheral neuropathy. This condition is common among individuals over the age of 55.

Peripheral neuropathy can cause:

  • Cramping
  • Leg or foot discomfort
  • Numbness
  • Pain when walking
  • Tingling or prickling feeling
  • Sharp, electric, or burning pain

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

It is often difficult to identify the origin of peripheral neuropathy – it can be acquired, passed genetically from parent to children, or come from an unknown source.

Acquired peripheral neuropathy can be caused by:

  • Alcoholism
  • Certain medications
  • Diabetes
  • Certain types of cancer and chemotherapy
  • Physical injury
  • Vitamin deficiency and poor nutrition
  • Autoimmune diseases that attack the nerves mistakenly
  • Diseases of the kidneys and thyroid glands
  • Shingles, Lyme disease, AIDS, and other infections

How to Treat Peripheral Neuropathy

Dr. Thomas Caputo utilizies a special treatment method called the Matrix. This method creates electrical anesthesia which eliminates pain and improves circulation which can help change your life. Treatments depend on the symptoms, location, and type of nerve damage. In general, maintaining a healthy lifestyle can reduce the effects of peripheral neuropathy.

  • Eat a balanced diet
  • Correct vitamin deficiencies
  • Avoid exposure to toxins
  • Maintain optimal weight
  • Follow a physician-supervised exercise program
  • Avoid alcohol consumption and smoking 

Chiropractic Care for Peripheral Neuropathy

Chiropractic care targets the root causes of a patient’s pain symptoms, making it an essential part of the treatment program for peripheral neuropathy.

At Caputo Chiropractic Center, the highly trained and board-certified staff offer various natural, non-invasive, and drug-free alternative treatments for peripheral neuropathy:

Deep Tissue Laser Treatment

Laser therapy relieves pain associated with carpal tunnel and other issues by stimulating healing on a cellular level through a process called photobiomodulation.

Spinal Decompression 

Spinal decompression or gently stretching the spine using a specialized motorized device, combined with chiropractic care and massage treatment, is highly effective for sciatica and reduces pressure and inflammation in the spine.  

Chiropractic Adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments or the skillful application of controlled force to relieve pressure in the spine help clear up Bell’s palsy faster.
