Peripheral Neuropathy

Do You Have Numb, Tingling Or Burning Feet Or Hands?

Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in Murfreesboro TN

Peripheral Neuropathy is one of the most common chronic diseases in the U.S…over 20 million Americans have it. Peripheral Neuropathy or “nerve damage” disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs…as if body’s electrical wiring system is breaking down, causing numbness, pain, weakness and poor coordination. There is a problem with the nerves that carry information to and from the brain and spinal nerves. Symptoms usually begin with pain in the toes or feet, with the pain spreading up the legs over time. This can produce pain, loss of sensation and inability to control muscles.

Literally speaking…“Peripheral” means further out from the center of the body – distant from Brain and Spinal Cord. “Neuro” means nerves. “Pathy” means abnormal.

3 Main Types of Nerves

1. Sensory Nerves (those that carry sensations):

Damage to sensory fibers results in changes in sensation, burning sensations, nerve pain, tingling or numbness, or an inability to determine joint position, which causes un-coordination. For many neuropathies, sensation changes often begin in the feet and progress toward the center of the body with involvement of other areas as the condition worsens. Diabetes is a common cause for sensory neuropathy.

2. Motor Nerves (those that control muscles):

Damage to the motor fibers interferes with muscle control and can cause weakness, loss of muscle bulk, and loss of dexterity. Sometimes, cramps are a sign of motor nerve involvement.
Other muscle-related symptoms include the following:

  • Difficulty breathing or swallowing
  • Difficulty or inability to move a part of the body (paralysis)
  • Falling (from legs buckling or tripping over toes)
  • Lack of dexterity (such as being unable to button a shirt)
  • Lack of muscle control
  • Loss of muscle tissue (muscle atrophy)
  • Muscle twitching or cramping

3. Autonomic Nerves (those that carry information to organs & glands):

The autonomic nerves control involuntary or semi-voluntary functions, such as control of internal organs and blood pressure.

What can Nerve Damage cause?

  • Abdominal bloating
  • Blurred vision
  • Constipation
  • Decreased ability to sweat
  • Diarrhea
  • Difficulty beginning to urinate (urinary hesitancy)
  • Dizziness that occurs when standing up or fainting associated with a fall in blood pressure
  • Feeling full after eating a small amount (early satiety)
  • Feeling of incomplete bladder emptying
  • Heat intolerance with exertion
  • Male impotence
  • Nausea or vomiting after meals
  • Unintentional weight loss (more than 5% of body weight)

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

  • Statin Drugs (Cholesterol lowering drugs)
  • Injured back, years or decades ago, leading to scar tissue
  • Arthritis
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Bulging Disc
  • Diabetes- Type 1 & Type 2
  • Poor Diet
  • Cancer Treatment
  • Genetics/ Lifestyle (80% life style/20% genes)

Advanced Treatment Options

Have you suffered with this condition for a few months, a few years, or too many years to mention?

Some may suffer only minor symptoms, while others (perhaps you or a loved one) feel the debilitating effects of Peripheral Neuropathy and are kept from participating in life, making even simple daily activities almost impossible.

The most common treatments for neuropathy include over-the-counter pain medications, prescription pain medications, anti-depressants, anti-seizure medication and topical creams. The side effects from these medications can themselves be unbearable – foggy thinking, drowsiness, weight gain, constipation, fatigue and dizziness. These medications seek to mask the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy but are unable to correct the problem.

Magnolia Medical Center is proud to offer a new, state-of-the-art Peripheral Neuropathy treatment for damaged nerves and neuropathic pain which is both non-invasive and drug free. Treatments can include nerve regeneration protocols, spinal decompression therapy, and balance treatments to address the condition itself. Additionally, full neurological, nutritional & metabolic workups enable us to help resolve the underlying health condition that led to the peripheral nerve disease and neuropathic pain.

Our goal is to help patients regain their lives. It is a two-fold approach that handles both the immediate symptoms and the underlying causes.

Peripheral Neuropathy Success

Sharon’s Success

“The pain in my feet was burning…stabbing pains at night…muscle cramps in my legs…numbness. I thought I may end up in a wheelchair. I had been to so many different doctors and was told I just had to live with it. This was my last hope.”

“The improvement was so wonderful – I can wear regular shoes again – I don’t have that pain, that burning – I have almost all feeling back in my feet and legs – I AM VERY HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS I’VE GOTTEN.”

Imagine how different your life would be if you were free from the burdens caused by Peripheral Neuropathy.
