How We Treat Neuropathy
Neuropathy can be caused by many things, from diabetes to traumatic injuries. Unfortunately, the condition is often overlooked by physicians and patients alike. Below are some approaches we use to care for neuropathy.
Comprehensive Consultation and Exam
At our center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating neuropathy. We start with a consultation to get to the root of the problem. Then, we perform a thorough exam to rule out any other potential causes of the symptoms. After that, we develop a personalized treatment plan that may include chiropractic adjustments, physical therapy, electrical stimulation, suggested supplementation, and lifestyle changes. We also offer support and resources to assist our patients in managing their conditions and enhancing their quality of life.
Chiropractic care is a drug-free, non-invasive treatment option for neuritis that focuses on restoring normal function to the nervous system. By aligning the spine and correcting subluxations, chiropractors can take pressure off the nerves and allow them to heal.
Chiropractic care effectively reduces pain, improves nerve function, and increases range of motion. It is a practical and safe treatment for neuritis that can help you get back to living your life.
Spinal decompression is a non-surgical treatment that gently stretches the spine to relieve nerve pressure. It can help reduce pain, improve blood flow, and promote oxygen delivery to the affected areas. If you’re looking for a safe and effective treatment for neuritis, this therapy may be right for you.
A critical aspect of treatment is nutrition and supplementation. A healthy diet is vital for everyone, but it is essential for those with neuritis. Certain nutrients can help to support nerve health and reduce inflammation. These include omega-3 fatty acids, B vitamins, vitamin D, and magnesium.

Types of Neuropathy
There are different types of mononeuropathy, including peripheral mononeuropathy, autonomic neuropathy, focal mononeuropathy, and others.
Peripheral mononeuropathy is nerve damage resulting from diabetes, certain medications, infections, traumatic injuries, and exposure to toxins. Symptoms may include numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness.
Diabetic mononeuropathy is the most popular type of peripheral mononeuropathy. It typically affects the feet and legs first and can eventually spread to the hands and arms. Diabetic mononeuropathy is brought up by high blood sugar levels damaging the nerves.
Medication-induced mononeuropathy can be caused by chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer or HIV/AIDS. Antidepressants, heart medications, and over-the-counter drugs have also been linked to peripheral mononeuropathy.
Infections such as shingles or hepatitis C can lead to nerve damage. Traumatic injuries, including those from car accidents or falls, can also cause peripheral mononeuropathy. Besides, exposure to toxins such as lead or mercury can damage the nerves and cause peripheral mononeuropathy.
Proximal neuropathy, also known as lumbosacral plexus mononeuropathy, is a type of peripheral nerve damage that occurs when the lumbosacral plexus, a network of nerves in the lower back and pelvis, is damaged. This mononeuropathy can cause weakness and pain in the legs and hips. Proximal mononeuropathy is most often caused by diabetes, but certain infections, injuries, or tumors can also cause it. Treatment for proximal mononeuropathy typically relieves pain and improves strength and function.
Autonomic mononeuropathy is a kind of mononeuropathy that affects the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system controls involuntary body actions, like blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, and sweating. Autonomic mononeuropathy can occur in any part of the autonomic nervous system.
Symptoms of autonomic neuropathy depend on which organ or body system is affected. If blood pressure control is affected, symptoms may include lightheadedness or fainting when standing up too quickly. If the digestive system is affected, symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Other possible symptoms include trouble urinating (urinary incontinence), sexual dysfunction, and problems with sweating.
Other conditions, such as diabetes or certain infections, usually cause autonomic mononeuropathy. It can also be caused by certain medications or surgery.
Treatment for autonomic mononeuropathy focuses on managing the underlying condition and relieving symptoms. For example, if diabetes is the cause, treatment will focus on controlling blood sugar levels.
