Carrolltown Chiropractic Care of Neuropathy

Nerve pain is neuropathy. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats Carrolltown neuropathy with Carrolltown chiropractic care. Burning, stabbing, numb pain in the arms, hands, feet, leg, toes, fingers is neuropathic pain. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation often sees neuropathy with Carrolltown back pain and sciatica. Neuropathy is caused by a variety of likely issues like pinched nerves, spinal stenosis, or pressure from a herniated disc. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation treats all of these conditions without surgery and with Cox Technic as part of a Carrolltown chiropractic treatment plan. If a nerve is compressed, neuropathy may follow. Neuropathy may spread to the hands and feet subject to the nerve being irritated. Neuropathy hurts. Neuropathy heals bit by bit. Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation may well relieve its painful grip on you.

Causes and Symptoms of Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is one type of neuropathy Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation gets to diagnose and care for in Carrolltown neck and back pain patients. Peripheral neuropathy develops out of damage to peripheral nerves. These nerves are part of the nervous system that delivers information from your brain to your spinal cord (which is the central nervous system) and then out to the rest of the body. That potentially lets peripheral neuropathy go all the way to your toes and fingers. It may be caused by unexpected trauma or injury or by repetitive stress owing to compression type injuries from performing certain activities repeatedly that irritate and inflame joints, tendons and muscles.  Carrolltown patients will describe peripheral neuropathy as a tingling sensation or sharp, stabbing pain or a numbness or a burning sensation in the hands or feet or as a clumsiness that has you dropping things constantly. (1) Whatever its sensation, peripheral neuropathy may be unsettling, may leave if the peripheral nervous system has the opportunity to heal itself after injury or the source of the peripheral neuropathy is discovered and treated, or may be helped heal. This is where Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation comes into play to identify the source of the neuropathy and share Carrolltown chiropractic care to take care of it and reduce the irritation on the nerves. One article even shares that 28 days of compression causes disc degeneration while 28 days of decompression reverses it. (2) Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation uses Cox Technic to do this!

Healing Ability of Nerves in Neuropathy

Interestingly, peripheral nerves have a remarkable ability to regenerate themselves after injury. It takes time. One author explains that these nerves regenerate a millimeter a day (about an inch a month), so if the damaged nerve extends from your spine to your toes, it may take a while. (3) Researchers state that good but incomplete recovery comes about over 2 to 3 years for most patients with sciatic neuropathy (due to spinal nerve compression). Moderate improvement of the symptoms happens in 30% of sciatic neuropathy patients by 1 year, 50% by 2 years and 75% by 3 years. (4) In a review of published research concerning neuropathic pain, researchers record that 37% of chronic low back pain (that lasting more than 3 months) cases and 41% of soft tissue syndromes (like ligament or muscle tears) experience neuropathic pain. (5) These types of patients are prime candidates for Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation
