Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in Jackson, MI

Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition that affects millions of people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

Peripheral nerves originate in the spinal cord and flow out along lines in the body known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes damaged, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then radiate out to specific areas of the body.

This type of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

People develop peripheral neuropathy for many different reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also can be hereditary, although this is not as common.

And in some instances, the original cause of peripheral neuropathy is never determined. This is called idiopathic neuropathy and as many as a third of all people in Jackson, MI, with peripheral neuropathy fall into this category.

Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy depends on the type and severity of the condition. Some people respond to anti-seizure medications, while others benefit from antidepressants.

Capsaicin cream also is sometimes used to provide modest improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.

Relieving the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy

Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, eradicating the suffering is generally top treatment priority.

Dr. Penn non-aggressively adjusts any new ache or pain that I tell him about along with adjusting my neck, shoulder, upper and lower back and both knees every week. He keeps up on new techniques and technologies to keep me moving like I should be moving. Appointment times are flexible. Dr. Penn and the staff are personable and easy to get along with.

Spinal Decompression is a beautiful thing. Had a buldging disc at L5 for years, finally found a non surgical option that worked to eliminate the pain and numbness that was interfering with daily life. Dr. Penn truly cares about getting his patients the help they need, and the staff is wonderfull. 100% recommended.

After two back surgeries and multiple visits to a pain clinic I was still in so much pain I had reached the point where my ability to complete everyday tasks was limited. Chronic back pain had taken over my life. Dr. Randy Penn gave me my life back. After two weeks I am able to walk and complete simple household tasks without pain. He educates and is a healer. Thank you Randy and the team at Penn Chiropractic. You are truly a blessing.

Dr Penn has been a game changer for me. I’ve had several neck injuries and no relief for years. Been to countless doctors had injections nothing worked. I just dealt with pain daily to the point of going to work and that was all I could do. With the new technology Dr Penn and Hebren have started to change my life. Within two weeks of using the New Technology the difference is amazing almost unbelievable. I can’t wait to see how my neck will feel like after the complete transformation is done. I’m looking forward to enjoying my life again without dealing with this pain anymore more. I highly recommend Dr Penn for all of your health and wellness.
