What is neuropathy? Neuropathy, which is often called peripheral neuropathy, describes any health condition that interferes with the normal activity of the nerves of your peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system refers to a network of different nerves that connect your brain and spinal cord to the rest of your body. Common symptoms include tingling or numbness in your hands and feet.

At our clinic, we offer natural, non-surgical treatments for neuropathy that include chiropractic care and regenerative medicine, and will always create a customized solution for your neuropathy pain.
Types of Peripheral Neuropathy
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 this condition 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 all-natural neuropathy treatment. Our cellular regeneration injections utilize mesenchymal cells from the Wharton’s jelly of donated umbilical cord tissue. Unlike cells taken from your own body, these youthful cells still contain all of the necessary elements to promote fast and efficient healing. As we age, the numbers of cells we produce that have crucial healing components like cytokines, exosomes, proteins, and growth factors declines. The overall fitness level of our cells also declines with age, which is why healing is a slower process the older you get.
When we extract high-quality cells from the umbilical cords of healthy cesarean section births, they can be injected into your damaged tissue to kick start your body’s own healing process and provide you with faster neuropathy pain relief. These cells are ‘immune privileged’, which means the chances of rejection are virtually zero because they have yet to develop their own immune system.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is another treatment we use to help facilitate healing. A PRP injection is made of your blood that is spun in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the platelets. 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.
We also offer other 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.
Causes of Neuropathy
There is a range of different causes of peripheral neuropathy.
Some of the most common include:
- Rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases
- Viral and bacterial infections
- Kidney disease
- Liver disease
