Causes and Symptoms of Neuropathy Peripheral neuropathy is a type of neuropathy Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc sees in Fort Wayne neck and back pain patients. Peripheral neuropathy develops out of damage to peripheral nerves. These nerves are part of the nervous system that sends 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 allows peripheral neuropathy extend to your toes and fingers. It may be brought on by sudden trauma or injury or by repetitive stress due to compression type injuries from doing certain activities over and over that bother and inflame joints, tendons and muscles. Fort Wayne 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 all the time. (1) Whatever its sensation, peripheral neuropathy may be disruptive, may go away if the peripheral nervous system has a chance to heal itself after injury or the source of the peripheral neuropathy is discovered and remedied, or may be assisted in healing. This is where Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc comes into play to identify the source of the neuropathy and share Fort Wayne chiropractic care to address it and lessen the irritation on the nerves.

Healing Ability of Nerves in Neuropathy Curiously, peripheral nerves have an amazing knack for regenerating 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 nerve that is damaged goes from your spine to your toes, that may take more time. (3) Researchers report 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 occurs in 30% of sciatic neuropathy patients by 1 year, 50% by 2 years and 75% by 3 years. (4) In a review of published evidence 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) have neuropathic pain.
