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 results from damage to peripheral nerves. These nerves are part of the nervous system that sends data from your brain to your spinal cord (which is the central nervous system) and then out to the rest of the body. That’s how peripheral neuropathy may 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.  Peripheral neuropathy is often described by Fort Wayne chiropractic patients 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 identified and remedied, or may be assisted in healing. Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc comes in here to diagnose the source of the neuropathy and use Fort Wayne chiropractic care to address it and ease the irritated nerves. One article even shares that 28 days of compression causes disc degeneration while 28 days of decompression reverses it. (2) Cox Chiropractic Medicine Inc utilizes Cox Technic to do this!

Healing Ability of Nerves in Neuropathy

Curiously, peripheral nerves have an amazing knack for regenerating themselves after injury. It does take 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 occurs 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 regarding neuropathic pain, researchers document 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.
