Neuropathy FAQs

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves and can often cause pain in the hands and feet. Without proper care, the nerve damage may become worse or permanent. At Chiropractic USA in Pleasant Grove, UT, we offer various treatments to alleviate your discomfort and prevent further complications. Many of our patients we treat see 30-80% improvement in their condition within 6 months of guided home care. Before you visit us, take a look at some frequently asked questions about neuropathy below:


What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy refers to a broad range of conditions that result from damage to the peripheral nerves. These nerves play a crucial role in transmitting signals between the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. When they are damaged, it can disrupt these signals, which leads to various sensory and motor symptoms. 

What Causes Neuropathy?

Neuropathy can occur due to a variety of causes, such as diabetes, autoimmune diseases, infections, traumatic injuries, and exposure to toxins. In some cases, the exact cause may remain unknown. These conditions of the body often cause damage to blood vessels in your legs, feet and hands. The lack of blood flow causes the nerve scream for help. This is what you are feeling...your nerves are starting to die. Understanding the underlying cause is essential for developing an effective treatment plan.

What are the Symptoms of Neuropathy?

The symptoms of neuropathy can vary depending on the type of nerves affected and the underlying cause of the condition. Common symptoms include tingling, numbness, burning sensation, muscle weakness, and sharp or stabbing pain. These symptoms may worsen over time and significantly impact an individual's quality of life.

How is Neuropathy Diagnosed?

Diagnosing neuropathy typically involves a thorough medical history review, physical examination, and various tests. These tests may include nerve conduction studies, electromyography (EMG), blood tests, and imaging studies to assess nerve function and identify any underlying conditions contributing to neuropathy. In our clinic we perform a 20 point sensory exam to see how much sensory loss you are experiencing. We will usually know after that if our program will be a good fit for you or not.

Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help with Neuropathy?

The short answer is Not Really. Chiropractic adjustments focus on realigning the spine and improving nervous system function, which may provide relief for those with nerve pain caused by pinching of the nerve. Chiropractic can help alleviate symptoms by reducing pressure on nerves and improving overall spinal health. Our peripheral neuropathy program utilizes several "at home" therapies that will improve blood flow and help heal your nerve damage in the comfort of your own home. Chiropractic USA is uniquely able to help you with your nerve pinches as well as your nerve damage (neuropathy).
