CAUSES OF PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY
Approximately 20 million Americans suffer from this debilitating disease. Neuropathy symptoms can occur in patients with restless leg syndrome, sciatic neuropathy, and has been recently linked to statin drugs used to lower cholesterol.
OTHER CAUSES OF PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY INCLUDE:
Agent Orange & other War Toxins
Degenerative or Herniated Discs
Autoimmune Disorders Including Rheumatoid Arthritis
SYMPTOMS OF PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY IN FEET & LEGS
Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms include:
Sharp Pains or Cramps in the Feet or Legs
Burning Pain in the Legs, Feet or Hands
Extreme Sensitivity to Touch
Loss of Balance or Coordination
Feelings of Walking on Pins and Needles
Weakness in the Arms and Legs
Tingling or Pain in the Toes, Feet, Hands, Arms and Fingers
Dependency on Pain Medications
Discoloration in the Feet
Cold Feet or Hands
COMPLICATIONS OF NEUROPATHY
The complications associated with neuropathy vary depending on the cause of the nerve damage. Some neuropathies can be fatal. In fact, one of the most common causes of death in people over the age of 60 is due to a fall due to balance issues caused by numb feet. Falls can also lead to broken hips and concussions. Other complications include foot ulcers (open wounds) that develop on the skin and can't heal due to the lack of blood supply to the affected area, walking and balance issues from being unable to feel the feet, trouble sleeping due to pain or tingling, gangrene (tissue death) which could lead to amputation. Early diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy may be able to prevent these and other complications from occurning.
NEUROPATHY TREATMENT AT CHIROPRACTIC FAMILY HEALTH CENTER
Many patients are suffering from symptoms of painful cramping, burning and tingling, difficulty walking, numbness and even interruption of sleep. The specialized treatment protocol at the Chiropractic Family Health Center includes multiple treatment elements including Infrared Therapy and Photomodulation. This therapy has long been well recognized internationally, and these recent advancements offer hope for many more to live a more pain-free and enjoyable life.
Dr. Shawn Richey stated that “we’ve treated 100's of patients with neuropathy with this breakthrough technology and have had a 90% satisfaction rate.“
Dr. Shawn has seen many patients suffering with peripheral neuropathy. “They have tried everything including potentially harmful medications and other painful testing and treatments. This can leave patients still struggling and wandering down the long road of endless disappointment. Now we are able to address the pain associated with peripheral neuropathy with a successful, non-invasive, drug-free approach that includes the use of light therapy to stimulate tissue repair.”
Pain from unknown Nerve Damage causes that stimulates the nerves continually, if not resolved, can make the nerves more sensitive to pain. This becomes a downward spiral for those with back or neck pain. Over time, there is so much stimulation of the nerve in the form of pain, that it changes the nerve and causes ongoing pain, even after the problem has been resolved. It seems that the pain signal is sent to the nervous system, even without tissue damage. Also, there may not be a definitive point of pain. Perhaps the pain becomes the problem, as the nervous system is somehow misfiring and creating it's own pain.
Neuropathic pain results from Nerve Injury or Disease Damage to, or dysfunction, the peripheral or central nervous system, rather than stimulation of the pain receptors. Diagnosis is suggested by pain that is out of proportion to the tissue injury, such as burning or tingling. In other words, rather than an injury causing pain, the nerves themselves are causing the pain because they have become damaged and malfunction. The nerves become the source of pain.
TYPES OF NEVER DAMAGE AND SYMPTOMS
The category of pain, pain that persists when there is no apparent physical reason, has only recently been investigated seriously. This type of pain may indicate that the nerves carrying the pain signals to the brain may have been damaged from the previous injury. These Damaged Nerves continue to broadcast messages of pain to the brain even though the tissue damage has healed. For most people, neuropathic pain feels like a severe shooting pain or a shooting, stabbing pain. It can radiate and cause pain along the entire nerve path. A condition associated with nerve pain is Peripheral neuropathy. Many of these patients suffer from symptoms of painful cramping and burning, numbness, weakness of the arms and legs and interruption of sleep. Approximately 20 million Americans suffer from this debilitating disease and it is commonly associated with diabetes. Yet, neuropathy symptoms can also occur in patients suffering from, restless leg syndrome, sciatic neuropathy, or have gone through chemotherapy. Recently it has also been linked to statin drugs which are used to lower cholesterol.
“For a few months I was experiencing tingling and numbness in my feet, I was also becoming off balance when I walked. A friend of mine saw an article inPittsburgh 55+ Magazine describing exactly what I was experiencing. It was called neuropathy. I kept the article for a month and my symptoms were getting worse so I called Dr. Richey for a free consultation. When I consulted with Dr. Richey he told me what the plan of action would entail. It has only been a short time and already I’m feeling 50% better. Dr. Richey is a kind and caring man who takes the time to talk with you and answers any questions you might have. Thank you Dr. Richey.”
"I suffered for 12 long years, starting in my mid 40’s. My legs were numb almost to my knees. I couldn’t understand how you could have numbness and such pain at the same time. The leg and feet cramps were horrible too. I was walking around the house and unable to sleep most nights. The neurologist kept increasing the number of pills at each visit and told me there is no cure. I was told that I would need a cane soon and eventually be in a wheel chair. I really hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Shawn Richey! I started my treatments in May, 2014. I was skeptical at first, but found relief after a few treatments. I talked with other patients and found they were healing as well. Getting rid of the neuropathy is one of the best things that happened in my life. I am now pain free 98% of the time and I now have my life back! Dr. Shawn has opened a satellite office in Latrobe. He has trained me to heal others. I have taught him a few tricks too! Make an appointment and talk about neuropathy with me!"
