What is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy, or peripheral neuropathy, is a condition in which the peripheral nerve fibers in the body become damaged. When people develop neuropathy, they will also have difficulties with strength, movements, balance, and sensation in the lower and upper extremities. Neuropathy typically affects the hands and the feet more than other parts of the body. Neuropathy can lead to a wide range of symptoms, such as:
- Pain, numbness, or other unusual sensations
- Difficulty sleeping
- Poor reflexes
- Muscle weakness
- Problems with coordination
The causes of neuropathy vary, but include disease, injury, vitamin deficiencies, diabetes, and other health conditions.
How is Neuropathy Treated?
The treatment for neuropathy will vary depending on its cause and the symptoms that a patient is experiencing. In some cases, treatment may only involve medications and gentle therapies. For more severe cases, we may recommend spinal cord stimulation or peripheral nerve stimulation. These treatments help to block nerve signals, which will eliminate pain, tingling, and related symptoms caused by neuropathy. During your initial visit, our doctors will assess your condition in order to determine the treatment that will be most effective for your situation.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect from Neuropathy Treatment?
The results from your neuropathy treatment will depend on the treatment method used as well as the extent of your symptoms. Some of our treatments may be able to provide long-lasting relief, while others may need to be repeated on a regular basis to maintain your results. During your initial visit, we will discuss your condition and your treatment goals in order to define the results that you can expect from your neuropathy treatment.
