Mission Valley Neuropathy Treatment

Holding handsAccording to the Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy®, an estimated 40 million Americans suffer from this condition. In simple terms, neuropathy refers to nerve damage that interferes with your body’s natural communication abilities.

Expert author and chiropractor, Dr. Britton is well-versed in caring for patients experiencing neuropathy and can assist those experiencing any type of this debilitating disorder.


How Neuropathy Affects Your Body

Your peripheral nerves carry signals from the brain and spinal cord. When there is damage to the peripheral nervous system, it’s like static on a telephone line that distorts or interrupts messages between the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. This lack of communication can lead to symptoms such as numbness, tingling, pain and weakness, often beginning in your hands or feet.

There are many forms of peripheral neuropathy, with diabetic neuropathy and chemotherapy-induced neuropathy being the most common. Your symptoms might go on for days, weeks or years, and may be acute or chronic.

What We Can Do for You

There is no cure for neuropathy. Early intervention, however, is key to ensuring you maintain a high quality of life. If not treated, your symptoms will likely worsen.

Chiropractic doesn’t rely on medications to cover up your pain. Rather, Dr. Britton seeks to locate the underlying cause of your neuropathy to manage your case.
