07 Apr Peripheral Neuropathy? 4 things you should know
1) It’s more than “just a little pain and numbness”
The pain, numbness, and weakness most commonly experienced in your feet and hands are a result of damage to your peripheral nerves.
These symptoms are your warning sign of an underlying condition involving your nerves.
Peripheral nerves branch off the spinal cord between the individual vertebrae and discs providing the neurological control of your shoulder, arms, hands, legs, ankles and feet.
Peripheral neuropathy is the result of damage to your peripheral nerves, which causes the pain, weakness, numbness, sleep difficulties, balance and walking problems many people who suffer from neuropathy experience.
2) Multiple types of risk factors and contributing factors
Metabolic – Risk Factors
Diabetes – The most common metabolic cause of Neuropathy we see in our office are patients with diabetes.
Nearly 60% of individuals diagnosed with diabetes develop Diabetic Neuropathy.
Chemical – Risk Factors
- Drugs / Prescription Medication
- War Toxins / Industrial Toxins
Mechanical – Risk Factors
- Bulged and Herniated Disc(s)
- Degenerative Disc(s)
- Spinal Stenosis
These causes are also very common, and are most often a result from mechanical joint problems, which compress the nerves that emit from the spine.
Hereditary – Risk Factors
Moving from the most to the least common, the final category of neuropathies are those caused by a genetic or hereditary factor. They include neurological challenges such as Friedriech’s Ataxia and Charcot Marie Tooth Disease. These are fairly rare and while very significant to those afflicted, make up less than 1% of neuropathies.
3) Medications only cover up the symptoms
Medications prescribed for peripheral neuropathy do not regenerate nerve cells, tissues or physiological function.
Some are effective at decreasing pain but the underlying cause of the condition damaged nerves are not addressed or being treated.
This type of treatment of masking the symptoms with drugs will not improve the damaged nerves and often develop into additional health problems.
4) There is a Hope and Better Way
Whether you’ve been taking pain-management medications for your neuropathy, or simply suspect you may be suffering from nerve damage, you should know that there is hope without drugs or surgery.
Currently, traditional medicine has no cure for Neuropathy. Patients are prescribed extremely powerful drugs that do not treat their nerve damage, which then only numbs the pain and symptoms.
Many patients cannot tolerate the long-term drug use and side effects, and feel they have no other option against their terrible pain and other Neuropathy symptoms.
Thousands of patients have experienced significant relief from the pain, tingling, numbness, inflammation and swelling that often occurs in conjunction with diabetic, statin, and chemotherapy related Peripheral Neuropathy.
