Neuropathy can be a serious condition affecting the nervous system. It can affect people to varying degrees, ranging from mild to severe. Depending on the severity and cause of the neuropathy, your condition can be life-altering. This means seeking neuropathy treatments is vital to your continued good health. Dr. Pamela Hart, at the Alternative Health Clinic serving Boulder, CO, has been treating patients since 1987 using a combination of nutrition, chiropractic, and applied kinesiology.
More About Neuropathy
The neuropathy we often see is called peripheral neuropathy. Peripheral neuropathy occurs when the peripheral and central nervous systems miscommunicate, experience loss of communication, or receive distorted communications. This is an enormous problem because the nervous system is your body and brain’s only way of communicating with each other. Imagine, for a moment, if your brain signals that your body should be hot when it is old. This can have serious repercussions.
Peripheral neuropathy means the areas of the nervous system being affected are outside the brain, and three main types of nerves are involved:
- Motor nerves
- Sensory nerves
- Autonomic nerves
The symptoms will vary depending on which nerves or combination of nerves are affected, but may include:
- Muscle weakness or twitching
- Pins and needles feeling or numbness
- Sleep disruptions and emotional disturbances
- Pain or loss of pain
- Digestive problems
- Loss of balance
Neuropathy may present as another condition, which is why you should seek advice from your healthcare provider.
Dr. Hart at the Alternative Health Clinic serving Boulder, CO, makes use of kinesiology (muscle testing) to assess areas like:
- Nerve interference
- Joint misalignment
- Muscle weakness
During a thorough assessment and necessary testing, we work to establish the root problem of your symptoms and identify the condition, which means you will receive more than symptomatic treatment. This will inform your unique wellness and treatment plan that will be tailored to you for maximum effectiveness, including:
- General chiropractic care and adjustments, including alignment from the ground up – feet, knees, hips, back, shoulders, scapulae, and neck.
- Functional nutrition and lifestyle advice
Dr. Hart supports the safe use of non-surgical, non-prescriptive medical interventions where possible, especially for those patients recovering from injuries and disorders. We want to get you back into the business of living life to the fullest.
