What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Neuropathy Treatment Amherst

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that develops as a result of damage to the peripheral nervous system - the vast communications network that transmits information between the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) and every other part of the body.

Peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body.

It is estimated 20 million people in the United States have some form of Peripheral Neuropathy.

Neuropathy Nerve Damage

Neuropathy Nerve Damage

Peripheral neuropathy can result from problems such as traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems and exposure to toxins. One of the most common causes is diabetes.

Poor blood circulation may also be a major contributing factor that leads to neuropathy. Diabetics are especially susceptible to neuropathy due to the damage high sugar levels may inflict on the small vessels responsible for delivering blood to the nerves. High glucose levels are believed to adversely affect the amount of oxygen provided to the nerves thus leading to neuropathy.

Maintaining Proper Blood Circulation is Critical

Good blood circulation is very important because blood transports oxygen, vital fluids and nutrients to the nerves.

Various treatment methods administered will help stimulate the blood vessels surrounding the peripheral nerves providing them with the proper nutrients to aid in the repair. It’s like adding water to a tree and seeing the roots grow deeper and deeper.

The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to fully recover varies from person to person and can only be determined after a detailed neurological and vascular evaluation. As long as you have not sustained at least 85% nerve damage there is hope!

By restoring circulation to the feet or hands, we can actually regenerate damaged nerve tissue. Even better is that these changes are maintained for the long term with the simple home therapies and nutritional protocols that you'll continue on your own.


Neuropathy is a progressive condition. Early treatment is critical.

Neuropathy is a progressive condition, meaning it tends to get worse with time. If left untreated for too long, the nerve damage can reach a point where there is simply nothing that can be done. This is why early detection and treatment of peripheral neuropathy is critical to getting the best results.

A number of factors can cause Peripheral Neuropathies

It’s not always easy to pinpoint the cause of Peripheral Neuropathy. A number of factors can contribute. Please call our clinic to learn if this treatment can help your condition.

Diabetes

Diabetes is the most common cause of Peripheral Neuropathy and can occur even in Diabetics who keep their blood sugar levels under control.

Chemotherapy

Patients undergoing chemotherapy often develop Neuropathy during or after the treatment.

Trauma or pressure on the nerve

Neuropathy commonly occurs after injury to nerves in the legs, and in patients diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy due to trauma.

Circulation disorders

Poor circulation leading to foot ulcers, and blockage of blood supply to the leg can also cause Neuropathy.

Alcoholism

Many alcoholics develop Peripheral Neuropathy due to nerve ending damage.

Restless legs syndrome

Peripheral Neuropathy can be an associated medical condition for patients diagnosed with Restless Legs Syndrome, characterized by cramping and other unpleasant sensations in the legs.

Diseases

Autoimmune diseases, kidney disease, liver disease and thyroid conditions can also cause Peripheral Neuropathy, as can certain viral or bacterial infections, including Hepatitis C and HIV/AIDS.
