Peripheral Neuropathy Q & A

What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy results from damage to your peripheral nerves. These nerves control the sensation in your hands, arms, legs, and feet. They also carry messages from your limbs to your brain.

If these nerves suffer damage, these messages may get scrambled. You may develop a stubborn tingling or prickling sensation. Some patients also experience sharp or stabbing pain. Other neuropathy symptoms can include:

  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Lack of coordination
  • Trouble walking
  • Muscle weakness
  • Paralysis

Without treatment, your symptoms may worsen. Some patients even have trouble standing, walking, or performing everyday activities. 

What causes peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy has many possible causes. Symptoms often result from:

  • Diabetes
  • Injuries
  • Infections
  • Metabolic conditions
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Alcoholism
  • Cancer
  • Prescription drugs

At Rejuvenate Health, the team performs an in-depth evaluation. They identify the source of your pain and develop a customized care plan. Your care plan resolves underlying problems to deliver lasting relief.

How is peripheral neuropathy treated?

Traditionally, peripheral neuropathy is treated with medication. However, medications can often cause side effects, and they may not address the source of the problem. Instead, prescription drugs often mask your symptoms.

At Rejuvenate Health, the team targets the source of your nephropathy. They begin by performing food sensitivity testing and blood panels. Blood tests can identify problems with your glands and assess hormonal levels. These tests also check your liver and kidney function., along with your immune system.

Once the team identifies the problem, create a personalized treatment plan. Your treatment plan meets your unique needs. Rejuvenate Health offers a range of cutting-edge treatments for peripheral neuropathy.

Is peripheral neuropathy reversible?

Most types of neuropathy are irreversible, but treatment helps keep your symptoms from worsening. Rejuvenate Health provides the care you need to find relief.

Sometimes, treatments can help patients regain healthy nerve function. In particular, Sanexas electrotherapy may help heal damaged nerve pathways for long-term results. Sanexas works on a cellular level to relieve pain and improve your mobility. With Sanexas, you can achieve drug-free relief.
