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 pain relief clinic in Wisconsin 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.
PRP Treatment for Neuropathy
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a highly effective alternative to surgery for treating neuropathy. The treatment 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.
PRP Injections at the site of your neuropathy pain or injuries will be soothing and encourage your body’s healing process.
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.
