A result of damage to your peripheral nerves, neuropathy often causes weakness, numbness and pain. While it typically occurs in your hands and feet, it can also affect other areas of your body as well.
Many neuropathy patients experience a tingling or pins and needles sensation in their feet and hands. This is a red flag that the nerves are not functioning normally. When neuropathy worsens, an individual may lose complete feeling in different parts of their body. It can also impact patients’ everyday lives in unexpected ways. For example, walking barefoot or soaking your hands and feet can be potentially dangerous for a neuropathic patient. Constant monitoring of water temperature before bathing is essential in preventing unintentional burns or injury.
Neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes.
Neuropathy can be a very difficult condition to treat. Physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture and platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) can all be helpful treatments to relieve neuropathy symptoms and make it more manageable.
