Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nervous system, and it can have a profound impact on a person’s life. The most common symptom of neuropathy is burning pain, which can range from mild to debilitating. Other symptoms include numbness, weakness, loss of sensation, balance problems.

This type of nerve damage or weakening in the peripheral extremities, which occurs mainly in the feet, is usually due to circulation problems, poor nerve flow into those areas or bad nutrition. The longer nerve dysfunction is present, the more damaging it is. This can lead to discoloration in the legs, open wounds, and in the most severe cases, amputations.

Common Causes

Many different problems in the body can cause damage to the nerves. Poor blood flow to the nerves, diabetes, chronic infections, pesticide exposure, genetic variants, and spinal stenosis are some of the causes of this debilitating condition.

Autoimmunity is another cause of nerve damage. Autoimmune diseases are diseases where the immune system mistakenly begins to attack the body. Many times, the immune system is actually killing the nerves of those who suffer from peripheral neuropathy.

How We Address Neuropathy

The good news is that when the root cause of the damage is identified and proper support for the nerves is given, the nerves have an optimized ability to heal!

At The Wellness Connection, we use a few techniques to treat this nerve damage. These include nutritional methods and those designed to restimulate the sensory and motor nerves using electrical impulses or nitric oxide. We can also use anodyne lasers. Typically, we use a combination of 3-4 different modalities with the ultimate goal of restoring better circulation, nerve function and proper nutrition in the body.
