Neuropathy Q & A

by Ram Parikh, D.C.

What is peripheral neuropathy?

The peripheral nervous system is responsible for sending messages from the brain and spinal cord to the remaining body parts and systems. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the peripheral nerves. As a progressive condition, neuropathy gradually worsens over time. If you fail to seek proper treatment for this condition, nerve damage can reach an irreversible point where treatments are less effective. Seek out quality chiropractic treatment from Dr. Parikh of the Discover Wellness Center as soon as you notice signs of neuropathy.

What are the signs of neuropathy?

Neuropathy often presents as pain in the hands and feet often accompanied by numbness and weakness. Although the problem is most common in the hands and feet, symptoms may occur in other body parts as well. Signs of neuropathy include:
• Burning or pain in the hands or feet
• Difficulty sleeping due to leg and foot discomfort
• Extreme sensitivity to touch and light
• Leg cramping
• Muscle weakness
• Pain when walking
• Poor coordination
• Prickling or tingling in the hands or feet
Problems with balance make this condition particularly dangerous since most patients feel unsteady on their feet and are more prone to experience falls and accidents. That’s why it’s vital to get treatment as early as possible.

I’ve been going to Dr. Ram for about 20 years. That speaks volumes! A couple years ago I finally decided to get decompression therapy. It’s a life changer! I can’t say enough about it. Dr. Ram is honest and always willing to offer suggestions, but he’s never pushy and never makes you feel uncomfortable. You will leave feeling better than when you went in! The staff is always friendly and is always accommodating to your scheduling needs.
