Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy Blog  Peripheral neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy is the official medical term for a variety of symptoms that are the result of damage to your peripheral nerves, or the sensitive tissues in your hands, feet, skin, and other parts of the body. Thankfully, a number of advanced peripheral neuropathy treatment options are now available for people suffering from this condition.

Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Many sufferers experience a stabbing, or burning pain that persists in their hands or feet. Sometimes the pain is experienced as a form of tingling, or numbness, similar to the “pins and needles” feeling that comes from sitting awkwardly. Often, the pain or numbness comes and goes, while in other cases it remains a persistent source of discomfort. Another sign is when people begin to suffer from loss of balance when standing up, or attempting to walk. Because these symptoms can also be caused by a variety of other illnesses and diseases, including diabethic neuropathy, it is important to consult with a doctor in order to arrive at an accurate diagnosis.

Causes

People suffering from diabetes are at an elevated risk for developing diabethic neuropathy issues. Other people sustain damage to their nerve tissues as a result of physical injuries, exposure to toxins or chemicals, or as a result of metabolic issues.

Diagnosis

The peripheral nerves are classified into three groups:

  • Sensory nerves that allow us to perceive pain, vibration, and temperature
  • Motor nerves that control our hands and feet, and
  • Autonomic nerves that regulate internal processes such as digestion, heart rate, and bladder functions.

Differential Diagnosis

The term “differential diagnosis” is used by medical professionals to identify the process by which diseases and injury-causing events are eliminated one by one until the correct source of the problem has been identified. Your doctor will work with you to understand your health history and current condition in order to rule out other factors that may be causing the pain, diabethic neuropathy, or loss of balance that you are experiencing. Once your doctor has concluded that other diseases or incidents are not causing your symptoms, together you can begin a course of peripheral neuropathy treatment that is right for you.

Treatment Options

A number of powerful medications are now available to help reduce the pain, suffering, and symptoms of damage to your nerve tissues. In conjunction with pharmaceutical medicines, a number of physical treatment options are now available to help your body heal and regenerate damaged tissues. Many patients have reported great success in reducing or eliminating the pain and other symptoms by using C.A.R.E.N peripheral neuropathy treatment options.

C.A.R.E.N Loss of Balance Treatment

C.A.R.E.N is an acronym that stands for Computer Assisted Rehabilitation Environment, an advanced system that generates a virtual reality environment to train the body in a special way to reduce pain, improve posture, and provide excellent loss of balance treatment for people suffering from nerve tissue damage. First approved for widespread use in the year 2000, thousands of patients suffering from loss of balance, diabethic neuropathy issue, and other forms of nerve damage have been successfully treated. The American military, in particular, has experienced great success in rehabilitating and treating injured soldiers with caren-based loss of balance therapy.

Conclusion

If you are suffering from the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, it is essential that you consult with a medical professional at once so that you can begin to explore your treatment options. As with all illnesses, early detection will greatly increase your chances of restoring your body to maximum health.

In this instance, an athlete was originally diagnosed with minor quadriceps muscle strain and was treated for four weeks, with unsatisfactory results. When he came to our clinic, the muscle was not healing, and the patients’ muscle tissue had already begun to atrophy.

Upon examination using MSUS, we discovered that he had a full muscle thickness tear that had been overlooked by his previous provider. To mitigate damage and promote healing, surgery should have been performed immediately after the injury occurred. Because of misdiagnosis and inappropriate treatment, the patient now has permanent damage that cannot be corrected.

The most important advantage of Ultrasound over MRI imaging is its ability to zero in on the symptomatic region and obtain imaging, with active participation and feedback from the patient. Using dynamic MSUS, we can see what happens when patients contract their muscles, something that cannot be done with MRI. From a diagnostic perspective, this interaction is invaluable.
