Peripheral Neuropathy?

A staggering 20 Million Americans suffer each year from Peripheral Neuropathy, a condition traced to a malfunction in the peripheral nerves. This painful neuropathy can be traced back to disorders like diabetes or malnutrition. In fact, 60% of diabetics experience diabetic neuropathy. At BeachView Chiropractic those who are suffering from the disorder may find relief here.

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral nerve damage in any part of the body causes effects such as muscle weakness or loss of sensation like touch on one side of your foot. It could make day-to-day tasks difficult to do without assistance from another person or to use adaptive devices if appropriate.

Peripheral neuropathy is a common type of neuropathy. It can happen due to injury, infection, or other causes that disturb the nerves in your arms and legs. Your symptoms may start mild, but they will get worse over time if it is not cared for properly before the damage gets too bad.

  • Numbness and tingling in the feet or hands
  • Burning, stabbing or shooting pain in affected areas
  • Loss of balance and coordination
  • Muscle weakness, especially in the feet

Chiropractors Treatment Approach

Once Dr. Chris Rush has isolated the impacted nerves, he will start to work on developing a treatment plan. As an example, Dr. Chris Rush may use a series of adjustments to free nerves that may have been trapped, pinched, or impinged. Then, Dr. Rush may use other treatment options, such as heat therapy or electrical muscle stimulation, to treat inflammation that could be contributing to peripheral neuropathy.

Dr. Rush may also provide you with corrective exercises you can do at home. These exercises are important because they may help you keep your joints, muscles, ligaments, and nerves properly lined up while also providing vulnerable parts of your body with the support they require during the healing process.

It’s important to realize that many factors in our lives contribute to chronic pain conditions such as neuropathic pain; these may include poor posture, muscle tension, or joint misalignment affecting nerves and muscles connected with them. If you have been living with chronic nerve-related pain for months or even years without relief from traditional therapies like medication or physical therapy. In that case, it might be time to give chiropractic care a try. Call BeachView Chiropractic Center today!

A: Bring your insurance information in with you when you come in for your appointment. There is no charge for you for the consultation to talk to the doctor about your condition. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, United Health Care, and Self Pay.
A: The Activator Adjusting Instrument is a hand-held, spring-loaded device that delivers fast, precise adjustments in order to restore range of motion to the vertebrae and extremity joints.
A: Traditional spinal manipulation is performed with our chiropractor’s hands. During the adjustment, a quick, firm thrust will be used to realign the joint. While this is perfectly safe, the adjusted area is much larger with a traditional adjustment than with an Activator adjustment. The Activator delivers a direct and precise adjustment that does not require any twisting or pulling. Individuals typically find the activator method less physically and mentally stressful because there are not as many pops or cracks associated with the adjustment, and the speed of the device means that the muscles do not have time to tense against the force.
A: Everyone is unique and we can give you more idea once we have assessed your case. Some patients experience almost instant relief. Others discover it can take many weeks or months. Many factors can affect the healing process.
