At Targeted Chiropractic we understand that peripheral neuropathy can be a very difficult condition to live with. We also know that looking for options that might help can be very frustrating because there are not a lot of answer out there for you. At Targeted Chiropractic we understand that when you have peripheral neuropathy it is because the nerves outside of the spine and brain are damaged and not functioning properly. We believe that the numbness, tingling and stiffness may be caused because there is excessive pressure being put on the nerves and the blood supply is also limited to the area because of how tight the musculature is.
Our Approach to Peripheral Neuropathy
At Targeted Chiropractic we take a unique approach to treating peripheral neuropathy. Since peripheral neuropathy is a disease that prevents the nervous system from functioning properly our goal is to restore nerve function. We do this with multiple therapies combined with chiropractic adjustments. Our treatments consist of adjustments of the spine and extremities to get the joint lined up to take pressure of the musculature so they can return to a relaxed state. Second, we are going to do some soft tissue work which is a combination of trigger point work and myofascial release to get the musculature to relax faster. Then for the third part of the treatment we are going to be using electrical stimulation to help open up the neural pathways to the brain. All of these therapies have one goal to restore function and increase blood flow and nerve flow to the area effective. When we can accomplish that, it is amazing how fast the body will respond and return back to normal.
