Diagnosis and Treatment for Neuropathy
Summit Medical Care Center is here to provide professional and compassionate chiropractic and pain management care which will reduce pain and restore wellness in your life. We believe there is no reason patients should have to put up with pain and suffering every day because we have many treatments that can help. One overwhelming condition that frequently brings patients to our Broomfield chiropractors for relief is neuropathy.
Overview on Neuropathy
Neuropathy is a painful tingling feeling or numbness in the extremities of your body. It usually occurs when nerves are damaged or diseased, interrupting the flow of information to your brain.
Neuropathy may occur as the result of diabetes, chemotherapy treatments, statin treatments, compressed nerves, certain genetic diseases, vascular disease, and even some infections. It can lead to difficulty walking, sleeping, or performing activities of daily life.
When patients come to our Broomfield pain management center complaining of throbbing, burning or freezing sensitivities, or shooting sensations, our Broomfield medical practitioners may take several steps to confirm a neuropathy diagnosis.
We will first take a complete medical history, perform a thorough physical and neurological examination, and evaluate your spinal alignment to search for all possible causes of your pain. We may also order an EMG (electromyogram) or blood, nerve, and imaging tests to confirm our diagnosis.
Neuropathy Diagnosis & Treatment
If our Broomfield chiropractors and medical practitioners confirm that your pain and sensitivity are due to neuropathy, the good news is that we have several all-natural Broomfield neuropathy treatment options available to help. If a disease such as diabetes is the underlying cause, we will first work with you to get that condition under control. If we determine that a compressed nerve or herniated disc is the source of your pain, we may recommend chiropractic adjustments or spinal decompression.
Other drug-free treatments we might utilize to release trapped nerve tissue and relieve pain include Class IV Laser therapy, Wave Therapy, or/and massage therapy to boost circulation.
Another treatment that we have available to calm prickly nerves is Anodyne Therapy for neuropathy. “Anodyne” literally means “without pain” because this non-invasive, FDA-cleared treatment therapy uses an infrared light therapy device to reduce pain, stiffness and muscle spasms, and increase local circulation. Over the past 15 years, Anodyne Therapy has been the choice of over half a million people looking for a non-surgical, drug-free way to relieve the pain of neuropathy. We may also recommend dietary and lifestyle changes to help improve your overall wellness.
