Chiropractic Care for Neuropathy
Neuropathy is the term used for damage to the nerves or nerve casings. Sadly, it impacts tens of millions of Americans – many of whom have learned to just deal with it.

However, a chiropractic neuropathy doctor like Dr. Wilson at Core Strength Wellness Center in Little Elm, TX, can help. Learn more about neuropathy and how chiropractic care can help below.
Symptoms of Neuropathy
As the specific nerves damaged can vary depending on the person, the specific symptoms can vary, too. However, there are some common ones, including those listed below.
- Numbness or tingling in the feet, hands, and arms
- Stabbing pains
- Freezing or burning sensations, often in conjunction with dizziness
- Muscle weakness
Some people also notice a difference in how they experience different things. For example, their sense of smell might be different, objects look different, or clothing feels different.
You might also notice that you feel different in general. For example, your mood might change, or you might feel depressed.
How Does Chiropractic Care Help?
There are various methods and techniques that chiropractors can provide for neuropathy. One of the main ones is adjustments. Adjustments restore alignment throughout the musculoskeletal system, which helps relieve pressure on the nerves and restore nerve function. Other techniques include the following:
- Electric Muscle Stimulation and other soft tissue techniques can help by improving blood flow to the area and loosening muscles that are putting pressure on the nerves.
- Decompression and traction therapy help to create space in the spinal column, pull in herniated discs, and relieve nerve compression.
- Therapeutic exercises can help improve circulation, stretch tight areas, and strengthen weakened ones, which can all help restore function throughout the body.
These are just a few examples. Your chiropractor can help determine the best treatment methods for your specific needs and symptoms.
