Peripheral Neuropathy Q & A

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that develops when nerves outside your spinal cord and brain become damaged. This can cause an array of bothersome, even crippling, symptoms when not addressed. Visit Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic if you have peripheral or diabetic neuropathy and want all-natural relief.

What are the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy?

The hallmark symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Numbness
  • Tingling 
  • Prickling
  • Weakness
  • Pain
  • Burning pain
  • Digestion issues
  • Urination problems
  • Stabbing pain
  • Touch sensitivity 
  • Muscle weakness
  • Falling
  • Lack of coordination

Treatment at Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic may help you overcome debilitating issues related to peripheral neuropathy.

What may increase my risk of developing peripheral neuropathy?

Various factors can increase your risk of developing peripheral neuropathy, including:

  • Diabetes 
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Tumors
  • Bone marrow disorders
  • Infections
  • Inherited disorders
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Thyroid issues
  • Alcohol use disorder
  • Some medications
  • Toxin exposure
  • Nerve pressure or injuries
  • Nutrient deficiencies

Adopting healthy habits is one of the best ways to reduce the chance of having peripheral neuropathy, although its cause isn’t always known. 

How does K-Laser
® therapy help peripheral neuropathy?

If you’ve been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic may recommend K-Laser therapy. K-Laser treatments utilize painless red light energy to stimulate new cell generation and minimize peripheral neuropathy symptoms naturally. 

This treatment may relieve numbness, burning, tingling, shooting, and stabbing sensations in your hands or feet. It may also reduce muscle weakness and poor balance or coordination, as well as wounds and ulcers that develop because of diabetes. 

During treatment, your provider directs near-red and red-light laser energy into tissues containing nerve damage to stimulate natural healing. You may have a reduction in inflammation and diminished bothersome side effects related to your peripheral neuropathy. K-Laser treatments might last as little as 5-10 minutes. 

What other treatments address peripheral neuropathy discomfort?

One or more of the following treatments for symptom relief may also be part of your peripheral neuropathy care plan:

Physical therapy

Injury-specific stretches and strength exercises can rehabilitate damaged tissues, stimulate healing, and minimize your risk of future medical problems. 

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments at Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic help ease the pressure placed on painful nerves. The practice specializes in the Chiropractic BioPhysics® (CBP) method of restoring typical spinal curvature and alignment.

Massage therapy

Massaging painful or damaged tissues is a treatment that eases stress, reduces muscle tension, and diminishes peripheral neuropathy symptoms. 

Dr. Hipp's Chiropractic provides patient education to teach ways to lessen the discomfort you feel between in-office appointments.
