Peripheral Neuropathy: Finding Hope and Healing Beyond Medications

Published August 26th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Peripheral neuropathy, particularly in the legs and feet, can be a relentless and debilitating condition. It often starts as an unexplainable tingling or numbness, gradually escalating into pain that can be excruciating. If you've been battling this condition, you know firsthand how it can turn your life upside down. Traditional medical treatments might offer temporary relief but often fall short in providing long-term solutions. That's where Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness and SoftWave Therapy step in to offer a beacon of hope.

Understanding Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a term that encompasses a group of conditions that result from damage to the peripheral nervous system. This network of nerves carries messages to and from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body, including the extremities like your legs and feet.

Why Peripheral Neuropathy Starts

Peripheral neuropathy can have a multitude of causes. Among the most common are:

  1. Diabetes: Elevated blood sugar levels can lead to nerve damage over time, causing neuropathy.
  2. Trauma: Injuries, accidents, or repetitive stress on the nerves can lead to damage and neuropathic symptoms.
  3. Toxins: Exposure to certain chemicals, medications, or toxins can trigger neuropathy.
  4. Autoimmune Diseases: Conditions like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis can result in the immune system mistakenly attacking nerves.
  5. Viral Infections: Some viral infections, such as shingles or HIV, can damage nerves.
  6. Nutritional Deficiencies: Lack of essential vitamins and minerals, like B vitamins, can contribute to neuropathy.
  7. Idiopathic: In many cases, the cause of neuropathy remains unknown.

Traditional Medical Approaches

Doctors often prescribe medications like gabapentin or pregabalin to manage neuropathic pain. While these drugs can provide relief for some, they don't address the root cause of the condition. Furthermore, they may come with side effects and lose effectiveness over time.

Why Patients Seek Alternatives

Increasingly, individuals with peripheral neuropathy are seeking alternatives to medications and their side effects. They yearn for more than just symptom management – they seek true healing and restoration of function.
