.

What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy occurs when the nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord are damaged. As a result, you may experience numbness and tingling in certain parts of the body, such as your hands or feet. If the nerves have been damaged due to a disease or an injury, they could be malfunctioning.

What are Some Causes?

Determining the exact cause of neuropathy is difficult. However, it can develop from a variety of factors like diabetes, certain medications, personal injuries, or infections. If it is left untreated, neuropathy can lead to permanent nerve damage.

What are the Symptoms?

If you have neuropathy, you may experience various symptoms. For example, you may commonly feel tingling or numbness in your hands or feet or muscle weakness. Along with that, you might have sharp pain or a burning sensation in your feet. If you have any of these symptoms, we recommend visiting our chiropractor as soon as possible.

Is There a Cure for Neuropathy?

As of now, there is no known cure for neuropathy. However, there are ways to manage it. Physical therapy can help that your tissues are functioning properly and improve your blood flow.

What are Some Natural Remedies for Neuropathy?

There are some natural remedies that you can try to ease your symptoms. It’s important to keep your hands and feet free of restrictions, be careful with hot or sharp objects, and stay active. If your socks are too tight, for example, it might constrict blood flow to your feet and cause numbness, especially if you have neuropathy.

Misalignments in your spine may also be contributing to neuropathy. If your spine is not properly aligned, it can affect how your nervous system communicates and send signals. As a result, you may feel tingling and other problems.
