Chiropractic Elm Grove WI Foot Pain

Do you have signs and symptoms of neuropathy? Neuropathy is also known as peripheral neuropathy because of its effect on the body's sensory and motor nerves. It is very common for patients at our Elm Grove WI chiropractic clinic to experience the first symptoms in their extremities (hands, arms, legs, and feet). When this occurs it is referred to as Sensorimotor Polyneuropathy.

Signs and Symptoms of Neuropathy in Elm Grove WI

  • Experiencing tingling sensations in the extremities. This sensation is also described as a pin and needling feeling or prickling feeling.
  • Burning pain in the lower limbs. Eventually, the burning will move into the arms and hands as the condition progresses.
  • Having pains that are sharp and stabbing. Generally, these pains are worse in the evening. As the burning sensation, it will begin in the feet and legs and as the condition processes, the "electric-like" pain will move into the hands and arms.

It is also common for patients to develop muscle weakness and coordination problems. The muscles in the limbs may also become paralyzed. Patients also have increased likelihood of developing foot ulcers and infections in the skin. Peripheral neuropathy can occur when there is nerve damage and develop into dysesthesia, which effects a patients' touch sensation. This often leads to a tingling and/or burning sensation. The skin on the extremities eventually will become so sensitive that the pressure from sheets or towels.

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition where nerves are damaged, causing weakness, burning pain, numbness, tingling, and debilitating balance issues. Symptoms typically begin in the feet, but can spread to the lower legs, and into the hands. The damage to the nerves can be caused by many different problems. Poor blood flow to the nerves, toxic levels of sugar in the blood (diabetes), chronic alcohol use, autoimmune issues, medications (ex.- statins, chemotherapy), and spinal conditions are just some of the causes of this complex condition. The cause is different for every patient, but the effects are generally progressive, and can become debilitating, if not addressed.

Generally, symptoms of peripheral neuropathy in an effected area include:

  • Numbness/Tingling
  • Burning Pain
  • Loss of sensations
  • Altered, abnormal sensations
  • Muscle weakness
  • Deep Stabbing Pain
  • Balance Problems

Can Peripheral Nerves Heal?

Yes! It is well established in the scientific literature that peripheral nerves can, and do, heal. The key issue is that we have to stop whatever is causing the nerve damage in the first place, before the nerves can heal. When the underlying cause of the neuropathy is discovered, and proper support for the nerves are provided, it optimizes the ability and environment of the nerves to heal.

In order to effectively heal nerve damage, four factors must be determined:

  • What is the underlying cause of the nerve damage?
  • How severe is the nerve damage?
  • What types of nerve fibers are damaged?
  • What treatment approach will best halt the decline, and stimulate recovery, of the nerves?

You have sensory nerves (small and large diameter fibers that, as the name implies, provide sensation) and motor nerves (that control movement of your muscles). PLEASE NOTE: If there is muscle weakness from neuropathy for greater than two years, the damage to the muscles will likely, and unfortunately, be permanent.

How much treatment will the nerves require to heal?

  • This will be dependent on the degree of nerve damage, and what types of fibers are damaged.

The treatment we provide has four main goals:

  1. Optimize the environment within the body for nerve healing.
  2. Increase blood flow to the nerves.
  3. Stimulate the nerves that are damaged to reduce pain, improve sensation, and restore balance.
  4. Decrease brain-based pain.

Our exclusive treatment system increases blood flow to the nerves in the feet and/or hands, which helps to rejuvenate nerves naturally, and has returned many of our patient’s feet and/or hands to normal.

No surgeries. No addictive medications.

Our proprietary and comprehensive treatment program utilizes up to 8 different state-of-the-art technologies, and is unlike any treatment program you may have already experienced.

There Are 4 Vital Components To Our Neuropathy Protocol

    One of the treatment technologies we use to increase blood flow and repair the nerve is our new Low-Level Light Therapy (LLLT). The light therapy signals Vasoendothelial Growth (VEGF), which signals the production of angiogenesis. Angiogenesis is the creation of the new blood vessels, which is needed to repair nerve damage. These blood vessels grow back around the peripheral nerves and provide them with the proper nutrients to heal and repair. This technology has over 20 peer-reviewed studies with a 97% success rate with peripheral neuropathy.
    We use a state-of-the-art digital electrotherapeutic stimulation to assist in the growth of the nerves- called the Nerve ReBuilder. This is used by the Cancer Centers of America in order to help those going through chemotherapy repair their nerves. Nerve ReBuilder can even be done at home, so therapy can be done daily! The results can be immediate, in both pain relief and restoration of normal sensation.
    Proper nutrition in support of our other VITAL COMPONENTS is crucial for optimal tissue and nerve repair. Our Advanced Nutritional Therapies have been designed to accelerate the healing process by balancing the complex processes of inflammation, blood flow, and bioavailable nitric oxide.
    In synergy with your home infrared electromagnetic & electrostimulation therapy you will visit the office weekly for our in-clinic protocol. Each vital component is equally important for patient results.Nerve cells need two things to heal:
    - Fuel
    - Activation

    This makes the combination of Low Level Light therapy & Advanced Nutrition (the FUEL), and Nerve ReBuilder (the ACTIVATION) the perfect recipe for nerve regeneration!

    The amount of treatment needed to allow the nerves to recover varies from person to person, and can only be determined after a detailed neurological evaluation.

It's important to see a doctor if you are experiencing any abnormal pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arms, legs, wrists, ankles, hands, or feet. When a condition such as this is diagnosed early, you are able to control the condition and potentially prevent more damage. It is also recommended to see a doctor if you are having difficulty with sleep, trigger depression or if you have a small cut on an extremity that doesn't appear to be healing normally.
