What is peripheral neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body.
Peripheral nerves also send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold or a finger is burned. Damage to the peripheral nervous system interferes with these vital connections. Like static on a telephone line, peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy often include:
A sensation of wearing an invisible “glove” or “sock”
Burning sensation or freezing pain
Sharp, jabbing or electric-like pain
Extreme sensitivity to touch
Difficulty sleeping because of feet and leg pain
Loss of balance and coordination
Difficulty walking or moving the arms
Abnormalities in blood pressure or pulse
How Chiropractic Can Help Neuropathy
Data from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ Job Analysis of Chiropractic lists arm and leg neuropathy as the second most common nerve problem treated by chiropractors. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone.
Numerous studies have proven chiropractic’s effectiveness in helping nerve conditions…
Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments.
- Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008
With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.”
– JMPT 1998
What these studies mean is that with chiropractic care, you could soon be enjoying life…without those aggravating nerve problems.
How Our Specialized Neuropathy Treatments Can Help You
As experienced chiropractors in Augusta GA, Georgia Clinic of Chiropractic is one of only four certified treatment centers in Georgia and the only certified treatment center in the Augusta area for providing treatment using an FDA-approved device specifically for neuropathy. In addition to our chiropractic treatments, our FDA-Approved device is an effective, drug free, side-effect free, primary treatment for neuropathy. It is a method of dual electrical stimulation to stimulate nerves and muscles simultaneously. Thus the nerves are treated, and the muscles are re-educated simultaneously.
Our device basically acts like a pacemaker works for your heart’s electrical signals. If the pacemaker does not send exactly the right signal, then the four chambers of the heart may not pump in the right order and if the signal is too fast or too slow, the heart stops. So, too, our device’s precisely controlled waveform coaxes your nerves to transmit their signals in the proper order.
