Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy treatment in Colorado Springs

Peripheral Neuropathy is a term used to describe nerve damage or nerve death. This can be found in the large nerves which branch from the spinal cord or the small nerves found in the skin covering the body. Large nerves carry motor neurons for muscle movement, sensory neurons for pain, light touch, and environmental awareness, and autonomic nerves which control all of the organs found within the body.

Damage to these nerves can cause pain, numbness, weakness or nonfunctioning muscle, and organ pathology to the point of shut down or death. Small nerve fibers can be found in the skin from the top of the head to the tip of the fingers and toes. If these small microscopic nerves become damaged the usual symptoms include pain, numbness, burning or freezing, or electrical crawling pain.

Our clinic uses state of the art FDA approved laser therapy to initiate healing of the small nerve fibers and chiropractic adjustments to decrease pressure on nerves exiting the spine. Normal medical treatment for small nerve fiber peripheral neuropathy includes medications including anti-seizure and anti-depressants. These medications are used to decrease symptoms but do not work to correct the condition. We at Smith Chiropractic in Colorado Springs have a 90% satisfaction rate with patients receiving treatment for peripheral neuropathy.

How Our Therapy Works

Our therapy treats the nerves, which stimulates nerve function, which is the root cause of neuropathy pain.

Other traditional treatments only treat the symptoms:

  • Neurologists prescribe drugs to treat the symptoms of the nerves, and then they may send you to a physical therapist.
  • Physical Therapists treat the muscles and the joints but not the nerves.
  • Chiropractors correct spinal problems that may be putting pressure on the nerves but are still not treating the actual nerves.

Our treatment reduces pain and inflammation. Each painless treatment draws water, oxygen and nutrients to the damaged area, creating an optimal healing environment. This treatment offers the best in pain relief and expedites healing times. The best thing about this type of therapy, besides the fact that it is non-invasive, drug free and painless, is that there are no known side effects and it has a great success rate.

Research has shown that the treatment protocols we use produce faster and more effective results than other options. There have been over 2500 medical research papers published about these therapies and its accelerated healing and pain relief.
