How Our Chiropractor Provides Neuropathy Treatment
Nerves and nerve cells run all throughout the body to carry messages and ensure everything functions as it should. Neuropathy is a condition in which nerve cells have been destroyed or damaged, preventing them from operating properly. If you’re suffering from this condition, our team at Bear Chiropractic Center serving Bear, DE, is here to help.
Basics of Neuropathy
The nerves play a vital role in the body. In fact, they are involved in pretty much any process or task connected to your body’s functions. This includes everything from moving to how it responds to an injury or illness.
Unfortunately, the nerves can be affected by a wide range of issues, including but not limited to:
- Autoimmune diseases
When such an impact occurs, it can cause several symptoms, which range in severity. Some people feel a slight tingling or numbness in their extremities. Others feel intense burning, tingling, or prickling sensations.
There are also those who deal with a great deal of pain and difficulty moving the legs, arms, and fingers. This can impact their ability to pick objects up, write, drive, and more.
Chiropractic Treatments for Neuropathy
It is often strange to some people that a chiropractor can help with more than joint problems. The truth is, though, that chiropractors can help treat any condition associated with the neuromusculoskeletal system – a system that includes the nerves.
Your specific treatment plan is built around your symptoms and the root cause of your condition, but our chiropractor can offer several methods to help. If an injury impacts the nerves, spinal adjustments can help realign the vertebrae, releasing any nerve compression. It also manipulates the joints, helping patients restore mobility.
Therapeutic exercises can also provide many benefits for patients with neuropathy. By targeting the damaged areas, your chiropractic exercises can help remove any obstructions that are contributing to your condition, help relieve inflammation, help strengthen weakened tissues, and help improve the flow of blood and healing nutrients. This may help the body to heal itself as it was designed to do.
