Causes and Symptoms of Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy is one type of neuropathy Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic gets to diagnose and care for in Augusta neck and back pain patients. Peripheral neuropathy stems from damage to peripheral nerves. These nerves are part of the nervous system that delivers info from your brain to your spinal cord (which is the central nervous system) and then out to the rest of the body. That potentially lets peripheral neuropathy go all the way to your toes and fingers. It may be caused by unexpected trauma or injury or by repetitive stress owing to compression type injuries from performing certain activities repeatedly that irritate and inflame joints, tendons and muscles. Augusta 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 constantly. (1) Whatever its sensation, peripheral neuropathy may be unsettling, may leave if the peripheral nervous system has the opportunity to heal itself after injury or the source of the peripheral neuropathy is found and treated, or may be helped heal. This is where Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic comes into play to find the source of the neuropathy and offer Augusta chiropractic care to take care of it and reduce the irritation on the nerves. One article even shares that 28 days of compression causes disc degeneration while 28 days of decompression reverses it. (2) Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic offers Cox Technic to do this!
Healing Ability of Nerves in Neuropathy
Interestingly, peripheral nerves have a remarkable ability to regenerate themselves after injury. It will take time. One author explains that these nerves regenerate a millimeter a day (about an inch a month), so if the damaged nerve extends from your spine to your toes, it may take a while. (3) Researchers state that good but incomplete recovery happens over 2 to 3 years for most patients with sciatic neuropathy (due to spinal nerve compression). Moderate improvement of the symptoms happens in 30% of sciatic neuropathy patients by 1 year, 50% by 2 years and 75% by 3 years. (4) In a review of published research about neuropathic pain, researchers detail 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) experience neuropathic pain.
