Causes and Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that refers to damage in the sensory, motor, or circulatory nerves and causes pain, numbness, or tingling typically originating in the hands and feet. While this condition can affect people of all ages, it affects mainly seniors. It is estimated that around 25% to 30% of Americans will have some form of peripheral neuropathy in their lifetime.

With such a high percentage, it’s important to know the potential causes of peripheral neuropathy and effective treatment methods for the condition. No matter how mild or severe your neuropathic pain, talking with a doctor about your symptoms is imperative to getting effective treatment and learning about your options so you can get the help and the relief you deserve.

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by any number of issues affecting the nerves.

Some of these common causes can include:

  • Autoimmune conditions
  • Viral infections
  • Vascular disease
  • Sports injury
  • Repetitive stress injury
  • Diabetes
  • Bone marrow issues
  • Liver disease or kidney disease
  • Vitamin deficiency
  • Car accident injury
  • Alcoholism
  • Certain medications
  • Chemotherapy or other heavy chemical exposure

What Causes Peripheral Neuropathy? Suwanne, GANo matter the cause, neuropathy is an uncomfortable and often painful condition of the nerves that can worsen, spread, and even lead to more severe issues and conditions if left untreated.

While most doctors will recommend medications or surgery to treat your peripheral neuropathy, medications can often come with a long list of dangerous side effects and will only cover up the symptoms of the condition rather than treating the cause. Surgery is a painful procedure that often involves opening the body up to the risk of infection.

Thankfully, there are alternative, non-invasive solutions for peripheral neuropathy that address your condition’s root cause for pain relief that lasts.

Effective Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

If you or a loved one are dealing with the effects of peripheral neuropathy, you no longer have to live with debilitating pain or try and manage your condition. Regenerative medicine is an effective solution for peripheral neuropathy pain that treats the source of the condition for lasting relief.

Regenerative treatments, including PRP therapy and regenerative tissue therapy, work with the body’s naturally occurring properties and components to relieve neuropathic pain at the root cause.

Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy Lawrenceville, GARegenerative tissue therapy utilizes regenerative tissue ethically obtained from the Wharton’s jelly found in donated umbilical cords after a scheduled C-section birth. The consenting mothers who donate this tissue are prescreened beforehand to ensure the highest quality tissue, and no harm is done to the mother or baby during the collection process.

This youthful tissue is at its highest quality and the most potent stage upon collection, containing healing compounds that work to bring you relief, such as proteins, growth factors, cytokines, proteins, hyaluronic acid, and more. Because this healing tissue is too young to have an immune system yet, upon injection, it gets to work repairing and revitalizing the damaged areas with little to no risk of side effects or risks.

PRP Therapy, or platelet-rich plasma therapy, involves extracting a sample of your own blood and putting it through a quick process that concentrates the healing platelets found within your blood. The resulting rich, golden solution is then injected into your area of need to provide healing and relief for your peripheral neuropathy pain. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma solution comes directly from your own body, so there is little to no risk of rejection, and it works with your body’s natural healing properties to bring you relief that lasts.

Both regenerative treatment options are quick and minimally invasive, with little to no downtime post-treatment. Our doctors create personalized treatment plans utilizing regenerative medicine solutions to provide high-quality pain relief for peripheral neuropathy and related conditions.
