Understanding Neuropathy

What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy, refers to a condition that results from damage to the peripheral nerves. These nerves are responsible for transmitting information between your brain, spinal cord, and the rest of your body. When these nerves are damaged or disrupted, it can lead to various symptoms that can affect your daily life.



Common Symptoms of Neuropathy

  • Numbness and Tingling: One of the most common symptoms is a persistent numbness or tingling sensation in the hands or feet.

  • Sharp, Jabbing Pain: Many people experience sharp, shooting pains that can be quite severe.

  • Sensitivity to Touch: Even light touches can cause significant pain or discomfort.

  • Muscle Weakness: Neuropathy can lead to muscle weakness, particularly in the hands and feet.

  • Loss of Coordination: This condition can affect your balance and coordination, making it difficult to perform everyday tasks.


3 Most Common Causes of Neuropathy

  • Decrease or alteration in blood flow to the nerves

  • Inflammation or immune response around the nerve

  • Physical pinch of the affected nerve



Chiropractic Care and Neuropathy


At Capstone Chiropractic LLC, we understand that a successful treatment is centered around fixing the cause of the problem. Many of the treatments we do in the office are centered at improving the blood flow around damaged nerves, reducing inflammation, and increasing the space for nerves to move around the spine and in extremities.
