Neuropathy, which may also be called peripheral neuropathy, is a term that references a group of medical conditions that damages the peripheral nervous system – the nerves that transmit signals between the body’s limbs, organs, and muscles to the central nervous system. While neuropathic symptoms may begin as mild, they will often worsen if left untreated. Dr. Sherra Conde of The Spine Align Center in Fayetteville, GA, offers various chiropractic and complementary therapies to treat the root cause and symptoms generated by neuropathy.
What is Neuropathy?
The body’s nerves send electrochemical signals between the Central Nervous System (i.e., your brain and spinal cord) to various parts of your body. A neuropathy condition can manifest –
- With a single nerve (a.k.a. mononeuropathy)
- Multiple nerves in separate parts of the body (a.k.a multiple mononeuropathy)
- Many nerves in the body (a.k.a polyneuropathy)
What are the Common Symptoms of Neuropathy?
Symptoms of neuropathy will vary. Common neuropathy symptoms depend on the nerve impacted -
- Numbness/tingling in certain areas of the body – i.e., limbs, etc.
- Shooting and burning pain
- High sensitivity
- Muscle weakness
- Bladder problems
- Digestive issues
- Reduced coordination
- Changes to the health of skin, hair, or nails
What are the Causes of Neuropathy?
The causes of neuropathy vary and include, in part -
An accident or injury (repetitive stress, fracture, etc. ) can cause nerve damage and create neuropathic symptoms.
Various autoimmune conditions have the potential to cause varying intensities of neuropathy as they generate inflammation – the precursor to neuropathy –
- Diabetes – among the most common causes of neuropathy
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Guillain-Barré syndrome and more
Infections – Lyme disease, shingles, HIV/AIDS, etc. - either viral or bacterial, can cause neuropathy.
Those who are deficient in vitamin B1, B6, B12, or vitamin E may find this lack of nutrients can add to nerve damage.
Medications & Toxins
Certain medication side effects (e.g., chemotherapy) and toxins – like industrial chemicals or heavy metals may cause neuropathy.
