Neuropathy Q & A

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a painful condition caused by nerve damage. Neuropathy can affect both your somatic and autonomic nervous systems, which control your voluntary and involuntary movements and body functions. It produces a variety of symptoms including:

  • Pain
  • Temporary or permanent numbness
  • Tingling, prickling, or burning sensation
  • Tenderness to touch
  • Muscle weakness or wasting
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Digestive problems
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Heat intolerance
  • Changes in blood pressure

These symptoms are due to a disruption in the communication between your peripheral nerves and your brain. While neuropathy doesn’t have a cure, you can reduce your symptoms and maintain your quality of life with treatment.

What causes neuropathy?

Many factors contribute to the nerve damage that leads to neuropathy. One of the most common causes of neuropathy is diabetes. Autoimmune diseases like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, and Sjogren’s syndrome also cause nerve damage. Other conditions that contribute to neuropathy include:

  • Alcoholism
  • Certain medicines such as chemotherapy
  • Exposure to heavy metals and other poisons
  • Trauma or compression on your nerve
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Health conditions including infections, kidney and liver disease, and bone marrow disorders

Your risk of developing neuropathy increases if you have a family history of neuropathy or any of the medical conditions that can damage your nerves. A career that exposes you to toxins or one that employs repetitive movements that lead to inflammation also increases your risk.

How is neuropathy treated?

The doctors at Rise Wellness Centers are committed to helping you lead a pain-free, active, and fulfilling life. After a thorough consultation, they develop customized treatment plans to relieve your symptoms.

Ketamine infusion therapy is the cornerstone of many treatment plans. This innovative alternative treatment regulates the neurotransmitters and receptors in the region of your brain that interprets pain signals from throughout your body, reducing pain and other symptoms of nerve damage.

In addition to ketamine therapy, you should work with your doctor to reduce your risk of complications such as wounds and skin trauma which can lead to dangerous skin and soft tissue infections. You should also work to reduce your risk of falling.
