Suffering From Peripheral Neuropathy? Seek Treatment With Your Las Vegas Acupuncturist
Peripheral neuropathy afflicts some 20 million people in the U.S. alone. This enormous number is no doubt partly due to the fact that there are over 100 different varieties of this kind of dysfunction, which involves abnormal nerve signaling between the brain, the spinal cord, and the rest of the body — especially the extremities, which often seem to bear the brunt of the trouble. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:
- Sharp pains in the arms, legs, hands or feet
- Tingling, electric or “pins and needles” sensations
- Loss of muscle strength or control
- Loss of muscle mass
Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by acute nerve compression, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, nutritional deficiencies, alcohol abuse, tumors, chemotherapy or other toxins, and chronic infections. While nerve compression may affect only one nerve, systemic issues can affect multiple parts of the body all at once. Western medicine tends to rely on drugs such as Gabapentin to treat stubborn neuropathy, but this medication isn’t a lasting solution — and it also presents risks and potential side effects.
