Treatment For Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment For Peripheral Neuropathy – Woodstock.

The damage to the nerves outside of the spinal cord and brain (peripheral nerves) causes peripheral neuropathy. It often causes numbness, weakness, and pain in hands and feet. The effect can spread to other areas of your body as well, and you will need proper treatment for peripheral neuropathy Woodstock.

The peripheral nervous system sends messages from the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system) to other parts of the body. The central nervous system also receives sensory information from the peripheral nerves.

Diabetes can cause peripheral neuropathy

Traumatic injuries, metabolic problems, exposure to toxins, infections, and inherited causes can cause peripheral neuropathy. Diabetes is one of the most common causes. People suffering from neuropathy usually experience the pain that’s burning, tingling, or stabbing. You can take some medications to reduce the pain of peripheral neuropathy.

When To See A Woodstock Chiropractor – Dr. Kal

If you notice unusual tingling, pain, or weakness in your feet or hands, seek immediate medical care. Early diagnosis, treatment, and chiropractic care increases the chances of controlling your symptoms and prevents further damage to your peripheral nerves.

Diagnosis & Treatment For Peripheral Neuropathy


There are several potential causes and treatment for peripheral neuropathy. Besides a physical examination that may include blood tests, diagnosis usually involves:

  • A Full Medical History – Dr. Kal, our top Woodstock chiropractor, will review your medical history, including your lifestyle, symptoms, exposure to toxins, a family history of nervous system (neurological) diseases, and drinking habits.
  • Neurological Examination – Your chiropractor might check your posture and coordination, tendon reflexes, ability to feel certain sensations, and muscles strength and tone.

Your chiropractor may order the following tests:

  • Blood Tests – It will help to detect diabetes, vitamin deficiencies, abnormal immune function, and other indications of conditions that can lead to peripheral neuropathy.
  • Imagine Tests – MRI or CT scans will look for tumors, herniated disks, or other abnormalities.
  • Nerve Function Tests – Electromyography (EMG) records your muscles’ electrical activity to detect any nerve damage. A thin needle (electrode) inserting into your muscle measures the electrical activity as the muscle contract.

Managing the condition causing your peripheral neuropathy and relieving its symptoms are the primary treatment goals. If your lab tests reveal no underlying condition, your chiropractor might recommend watchful waiting for any improvements in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.


Easing the signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy might require various therapies and procedures.

  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) – Electrodes are placed on the skin to deliver a gentle electric current of varied frequencies. The application of TENS takes thirty minutes daily for almost a month.
  • Plasma Exchange and Intravenous Immune Globulin – These procedures help to suppress immune system activity and might benefit people with inflammatory conditions. Plasma exchange involves the removal of your blood, then the removal of antibodies and other proteins from the blood and finally, returning the blood to your body. Immune globulin therapy involves administering high levels of proteins to serve as antibodies (immunoglobulins).
  • Physical Therapy – If you experience muscle weakness, physical therapy can improve your movements. You may need a wheelchair, a cane, hand or foot braces, or a walker.
