Nerve damage, tingling in your hands, or numbness in your feet can be indicative of neuropathy. If you’re experiencing these symptoms, our doctor can help. We will tell you what your symptoms mean and suggest the best all-natural treatments for effective pain relief.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Any type of problem with the peripheral nervous system is classified as peripheral neuropathy. This network of nerves sends information from your brain to the rest of your body. Peripheral nerves exit the skull or spinal canal and extend to your face, trunk, arms, and legs.
Each type of peripheral neuropathy has its own set of symptoms and prognosis. To help classify them, they are often broken down into major categories:
- Motor neuropathy: Damage to the nerves that control muscles and movement.
- Sensory neuropathy: What you feel, such as pain, temperature, or a light touch.
- Autonomic nerve neuropathy: Functions that you are not conscious of.
- Combination neuropathies: A combination of motor, sensory, or autonomic neuropathy.
Neuropathy in the extremities can have adverse effects on other systems. For example, nearly all patients with neuropathy in the feet also have lower back issues. We believe that identifying the type of symptoms you have is critical to treating it effectively and ensuring your pain is relieved.
Regenerative medicine is central to an all-natural treatment protocol. With regenerative medicine treatments, specialized cells are used to repair or even replace damaged cells in order for the body to heal faster.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is one such regenerative cellular treatment. A PRP injection is made of your blood but is mostly a high concentration of platelets. Platelets have growth factors, and they signal stem cells to help in the healing process. A PRP injection at the site of your pain or injury will supply your body with the boost of healing cells it needs to accelerate recovery.
Stem cell treatment is an alternative regenerative medicine option that uses stem cells for pain relief. Our stem cell injections are composed of very young donated stem cells. These are mesenchymal stem cells from safe umbilical allografts. The Wharton’s jelly inside the umbilical cord houses an abundance of extremely effective stem cells, which is why we use them to treat our patients.
Evaluating your entire nervous system is essential to treating the source of your pain. Because we are a full-service facility, we also offer patients non-invasive therapies, including spinal decompression, chiropractic care, and laser therapy. These treatments can relieve your muscle and nerve pain by treating coordinating systems and bringing them back into alignment.
By evaluating your physiological needs, we can work on a plan to pinpoint what treatment would work best for your pain relief.
Causes of Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy has many different causes, including genetics, injury, medicine side effects, or infection. In many cases, a different type of problem, such as a kidney condition, diabetes, or a hormone imbalance, leads to peripheral neuropathy.
