Can Chiropractic Care Help My Neuropathy?

Chiropractic care is a holistic and effective way to restore the healthy alignment of your spine and boost your overall health.

As an experienced chiropractor, James Appell, DC, uses advanced chiropractic techniques to keep you mobile and pain free. Dr. Appell specializes in therapeutic treatments for a variety of chronically painful conditions including neuropathy.

The impact of neuropathy on your physical and mental health

Neuropathy is a term that describes nerve damage. This condition is a common result of an injury to your peripheral nerves, the system that provides sensations to all areas of your body outside of your brain and spinal cord.

You can also develop neuropathy as the result of an underlying health condition like diabetes. When blood sugar levels remain high for too long, your nerves suffer damage, leaving in persistent pain.

Other side effects of neuropathy include:

  • Poor coordination
  • Muscle weakness
  • Muscle cramps and twitching
  • Reduced sensitivity to touch

Tingling and numbness in your legs, feet, arms, and hands is also a common side effect of neuropathy. These issues can become frequent and severe enough to interfere with your mobility.

Mentally, the chronic pain and limitations in your ability to stay active can lead to depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders that further complicate your condition.

Chiropractic benefits for neuropathy

The goal of chiropractic care is to correct alignment issues in your spine and joints that may be putting added pressure on damaged nerves. Chiropractic techniques can also reduce chronic inflammation and tension in your muscles that further irritate surrounding nerves.

Our team at Medical Wellness Group uses a variety of soft tissue manipulations to realign your spine and joints to relieve pain and improve your overall function.

They also offer in-office treatments with transcutaneous nerve stimulation (TENS) technology. TENS therapy delivers low currents of energy through your skin to stimulate nerve healing.

Consider other alternative therapies for neuropathy

Our Medical Wellness Group providers offer other nonsurgical, therapeutic treatments to relieve persistent neuropathic pain and related symptoms. These therapies compliment the general chiropractic care you can receive on a routine basis and include regenerative medicine and spinal decompression.

Regenerative medicine therapies

Regenerative medicine involves Injections of stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP), natural substances already found in your body, to stimulate your body’s own ability to heal. Stem cells and PRP contain essential growth factors to regenerate new, healthy cells and reduce inflammation.

Stem cells have the unique ability to regenerate into any type of cell, including nerve cells, to heal damaged peripheral nerves from the inside out.

DRX9000® Lumbar True Spinal Decompression Machine®

The DRX9000 Lumbar True Spinal Decompression Machine treats spine issues that compress nerves and worsen neuropathy symptoms.

The goal of spinal decompression is to gently stretch your spine and create more space for your spinal structures. Spinal decompression also alleviates nerve pressure caused by herniated discs or bone spurs.

Dr. Appell and our team design a chiropractic care plan to meet your personal needs based on your level of pain, your existing health, and your medical history. Their minimally invasive, holistic approach to treatment is not only effective at keeping you pain free, but it also reduces the likelihood you’ll need invasive procedures or surgery in the future.
