The three factors to consider in order to effectively treat Neuropathy
– Underlying cause?
– Amount of nerve damage sustained?
– How much treatment is required?
The three goals of Neuropathy treatment at Bentonville Acupuncture
– Increase blood flow
– Stimulate nerve fibers
– Decrease brain based pain
Peripheral neuropathy is a result of damage to the nerves, often causing weakness, pain, numbness, tingling, and the most debilitating symptom, balance problems. This damage is commonly caused by a lack of blood flow to the nerves in the hands and feet. Every part of the body relies on blood via blood vessels, for oxygen and nutrients. Without it, the body begins to lose function.
As the blood vessels that surround the nerves become diseased, they shrivel. This prevents the nerves from getting the nutrients necessary to survive. The nerves begin to degenerate and no longer conduct sensation adequately. When these nerves begin to “die” they cause you to have balance problems, pain, burning, pins and needle sensation, and other symptoms
This life impacting condition affecting millions of individuals can be helped and even reversed. At Bentonville Acupuncture treatments are available to help you alleviate your suffering.
