Nerve damage, tingling in your hands, and numbness in your feet are all symptoms of neuropathy. Although the signs are specific to your body, our doctor in New Berlin can help you identify what your symptoms mean, which pain relief treatment is best suited for you, and how to get back to your normal routine.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is classified as any problem with the peripheral nervous system. Peripheral nerves leave the skull and extend to your face, torso, arms, and legs. Any damage or stress on your system can inhibit information being sent from your brain to the rest of your body.
In order to help classify the types of peripheral neuropathy, they can be broken down into their own set of systems and prognoses:
- Sensory: What you feel, such as temperature or a light touch
- Motor: Damage to the nerves that control your muscles and movement
- Autonomic nerve: Unconscious functions that you’re not aware of
- Combination: A combination of sensory, motor, or autonomic
If you have symptoms in your extremities, you may also experience problems in other areas. For example, nearly all patients with neuropathy in their feet also have lower back issues. In order to effectively treat your condition, our doctor needs to identify what type of symptoms you have and how they affect your entire body.
With regenerative medicine, specialized cells are used to replace damaged tissues in order to create an environment for fast healing.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment is a branch of regenerative medicine that involves drawing your blood and separating platelets from other blood cells. By synthesizing a higher concentration of platelets, proteins, and other growth factors for treatment, a PRP injection at the site of your pain will supply your body with a very high dose of its natural healers to accelerate recovery.
Injections of regenerative cells are an alternative treatment that utilizes not-yet specialized cells for pain relief. Your body already takes advantage of differentiated cellular tissue to regenerate damaged cells, but their function diminishes with age. Injections of young and healthy regenerative cells at the site of your neuropathy pain or injuries will be soothing and encourage your body’s healing process.
For our treatments containing regenerative cellular tissue, we trust credible tissue banks to collect cells from Wharton’s jelly by umbilical allograft. By collecting cells safely during cesarean deliveries, tissue banks provide us with some of the top regenerative cells needed for successful healing treatments.
Causes of Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy has a variety of causes, including genetics, infections, injury, or the wrong medication. Furthermore, a different problem, such as kidney issues, diabetes, or hormonal imbalances, can lead to neuropathy.
