At SHIN Wellness in Miami Florida, we offer treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy using a protocol revolving around 6 key elements which we feel really addresses the components of this condition from multiple angles- an approach that is necessary in order to really achieve results (more on the treatment later).
If you’re experiencing weakness, numbness and pain in your hands and feet this may be a result of damage to your peripheral nerves. This can also affect other areas in the body if you don’t find a cure.
Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes, alcoholism, certain medications (especially statins and surprise! some of the medication used to treat neuropathy) and exposure to toxins such as chemotherapy. A very common cause of Peripheral Neuropathy can be diabetes mellitus.
Symptoms can range from numbness (paresthesia) or tingling to pricking sensations, or muscle weakness.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy may include muscle wasting, gland dysfunction, burning pain (sometimes at night), paralysis or even organ damage.
If your nerves have been damaged your internal organs may impair sweating, digestion, sexual function and urination. I extreme cases your breathing may even become difficult or you could experience organ failure.
