Reclaim Your Life from Pain

Understanding Neuropathy

Welcome to Restore Me, a Colorado-based functional medicine clinic dedicated to providing innovative treatments for neuropathy. Our program combines Water Immersion Electrotherapy, Neuronal Stimulation, Photobiomodulation, and Alpha Lipoic Acid to offer long-term relief and healing. Neuropathy, caused by factors like diabetes, injuries, and infections, leads to symptoms such as pain, numbness, and muscle weakness. Our comprehensive approach addresses these symptoms and their underlying causes.

Neuropathy, commonly known as peripheral neuropathy, is a condition characterized by damage to the peripheral nerves. These nerves form an intricate network that connects the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body, including the arms, legs, hands, and feet. When these nerves are damaged, it disrupts communication between the central nervous system and the other parts of the body, leading to various symptoms.

Historically, neuropathy has been recognized for centuries, with early descriptions appearing in ancient medical texts. However, understanding of the condition has advanced significantly in recent decades, particularly in identifying its numerous causes and developing more effective treatments.

Neuropathy can manifest in multiple forms, but it is generally associated with symptoms such as tingling, numbness, burning sensations, and pain. These symptoms often begin gradually and may worsen over time, affecting a person’s quality of life and ability to perform everyday tasks.

The condition can be attributed to a wide range of factors, including diabetes, infections, traumatic injuries, exposure to toxins, and genetic predispositions. While diabetes is one of the most common causes, other factors such as autoimmune diseases and nutritional deficiencies can also contribute.

Living with neuropathy can be challenging and frustrating. Traditional treatments have often focused on managing symptoms rather than addressing the root cause. At RestoreMe, we aim to change that narrative with our innovative neuropathy program designed to provide long-term relief and healing.

The symptoms of neuropathy can vary widely depending on the type and extent of nerve damage. Generally, neuropathy affects the sensory, motor, and autonomic nerves, each contributing to different sets of symptoms.

One of the most common symptoms is sensory disturbances. Patients often report experiencing tingling or “pins and needles” sensations, numbness, or a burning sensation in the affected areas, typically starting in the hands and feet. This can progress to sharp, jabbing, or electric-like pain. Sensitivity to touch is another frequent symptom, where even light pressure can cause significant discomfort.

Motor nerve damage can lead to muscle weakness, making it difficult to perform everyday activities like buttoning a shirt or lifting objects. In some cases, muscle atrophy can occur due to prolonged inactivity or nerve damage. Patients may also experience balance and coordination issues, increasing the risk of falls and injuries.

Autonomic nerve involvement can lead to a range of less obvious but equally troubling symptoms. These may include problems with blood pressure regulation, resulting in dizziness or fainting when standing up quickly. Digestive issues, such as constipation or diarrhea, can also arise, along with bladder control problems. In severe cases, autonomic neuropathy can affect heart rate regulation and sweat production, leading to either excessive sweating or an inability to sweat.

The diverse range of symptoms makes neuropathy a complex condition that requires comprehensive evaluation and treatment. At RestoreMe, we understand the multifaceted nature of neuropathy and are dedicated to providing therapies that address both the symptoms and the underlying causes, aiming for long-term relief and improved quality of life.

The causes of neuropathy are numerous and varied, reflecting the complexity of the condition. One of the most prevalent causes is diabetes, particularly when blood sugar levels are not well managed. High blood sugar can damage nerves over time, leading to diabetic neuropathy, one of the most common forms of the condition.

Traumatic injuries are another significant cause. Accidents, falls, or surgeries that result in nerve damage can lead to neuropathy. This type of damage can be immediate or develop over time as scar tissue forms and impinges on nerves.

Infections can also contribute to the development of neuropathy. Certain viral and bacterial infections, such as shingles (herpes zoster), Lyme disease, and HIV/AIDS, are known to cause nerve damage. These infections can directly attack nerve tissues or cause inflammation that leads to nerve impairment.

Exposure to toxins is another potential cause. This can include heavy metals like lead and mercury, as well as certain chemicals used in industrial settings. Even some medications, particularly those used in chemotherapy, have been linked to nerve damage.

Autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Guillain-Barré syndrome can lead to neuropathy by causing the body’s immune system to mistakenly attack its own nerve tissues. Similarly, chronic inflammatory conditions can result in prolonged nerve inflammation and subsequent damage.

Nutritional deficiencies, especially a lack of essential vitamins like B12, B6, and E, can impair nerve function and lead to neuropathy. Lastly, hereditary conditions can predispose individuals to neuropathy, with genetic mutations affecting nerve health and function.

Understanding the diverse causes of neuropathy is crucial for effective diagnosis and treatment. At RestoreMe, we focus on identifying the underlying factors contributing to your condition to tailor a comprehensive treatment plan that promotes healing and relief.

Neuropathy, or peripheral neuropathy, is a condition caused by damage to the peripheral nerves, which connect the central nervous system to the rest of the body. This damage disrupts nerve signaling, leading to symptoms like pain, numbness, and muscle weakness.

Common symptoms include tingling, numbness, burning sensations, sharp pain, muscle weakness, balance issues, and sensitivity to touch. Symptoms often start in the hands and feet and may progress over time.

Neuropathy can be caused by diabetes, traumatic injuries, infections, exposure to toxins, certain medications, autoimmune diseases, nutritional deficiencies, and genetic predispositions.

Diagnosis typically involves a combination of medical history review, physical examination, neurological tests, blood tests, imaging studies (like MRI or CT scans), and sometimes nerve conduction studies or electromyography (EMG).

Our program combines Water Immersion Electrotherapy, Neuronal Stimulation, Photobiomodulation, and Alpha Lipoic Acid. These FDA-cleared treatments work together to provide long-term relief and healing.

While individual results may vary, many patients start to notice improvements within a few weeks of starting treatment. Long-term benefits often continue to develop with ongoing therapy.
