Diagnosis and Treatment for Neuropathy in Broomfield

Integrative Medicine Broomfield CO Neuropathy Treatments

Summit Medical Care Center is here to provide professional and compassionate chiropractic and pain management care which will reduce pain and restore wellness in your life. We believe there is no reason patients should have to put up with pain and suffering every day because we have many treatments that can help. One overwhelming condition that frequently brings patients to our Broomfield chiropractors for relief is neuropathy.

Overview on Neuropathy in Broomfield

Neuropathy is a painful tingling feeling or numbness in the extremities of your body. It usually occurs when nerves are damaged or diseased, interrupting the flow of information to your brain.

Neuropathy may occur as the result of diabetes, chemotherapy treatments, statin treatments, compressed nerves, certain genetic diseases, vascular disease, and even some infections. It can lead to difficulty walking, sleeping, or performing activities of daily life.

When patients come to our Broomfield pain management center complaining of throbbing, burning or freezing sensitivities, or shooting sensations, our Broomfield medical practitioners may take several steps to confirm a neuropathy diagnosis.

We will first take a complete medical history, perform a thorough physical and neurological examination, and evaluate your spinal alignment to search for all possible causes of your pain. We may also order an EMG (electromyogram) or blood, nerve, and imaging tests to confirm our diagnosis.

Neuropathy Diagnosis & Treatment

If our Broomfield chiropractors and medical practitioners confirm that your pain and sensitivity are due to neuropathy, the good news is that we have several all-natural Broomfield neuropathy treatment options available to help. If a disease such as diabetes is the underlying cause, we will first work with you to get that condition under control. If we determine that a compressed nerve or herniated disc is the source of your pain, we may recommend chiropractic adjustments or spinal decompression.

Other drug-free treatments we might utilize to release trapped nerve tissue and relieve pain include Class IV Laser therapy, Wave Therapy, or/and massage therapy to boost circulation.

Anodyne Therapy

Anodyne therapy is a non-invasive treatment that utilizes infrared light to stimulate circulation and reduce symptoms in the affected area. The symptoms that can be effectively treated with anodyne therapy include muscle spasms, stiffness, sensitivity to touch, tingling, numbness, freezing or burning pain, and weakness. This is all possible because infrared light encourages red blood cells to release nitric oxide, which in turn helps tissues heal and improves the overall function of nerves.

When Is Anodyne Therapy Appropriate?

This treatment is generally used to address the symptoms of neuropathy, and those can be caused by a number of underlying medical conditions. For instance, neuropathy is particularly common in patients with diabetes, as their nerves accumulate damage over time from repeated exposure to high blood sugar levels.

Some types of infections can lead patients to develop neuropathy, and these include HIV, hepatitis C, shingles and Lyme disease, among others. A slipped disc or other types of traumatic injury can also lead to the development of neuropathy, as can repetitive motion injuries, tumors, autoimmune diseases, certain types of medications, and other conditions. Regardless of the specific underlying issue, however, the immediate problem of damage to the nerve can be treated with anodyne therapy, possibly combined with other types of treatment where appropriate.

Comprehensive Care for Neuropathy

When you visit us at Summit Medical Care Center in Broomfield, our experts will complete a thorough physical evaluation, and we’ll also go over your medical history with you to help us develop a complete understanding of your condition. With this information, we’ll put together a treatment plan designed to both relieve your immediate symptoms and to correct the underlying issue that led to the development of neuropathy.

Anodyne therapy is an important part of this treatment plan, but other types of therapies may also be included depending on the details of your condition. For instance, if your neuropathy developed as the result of diabetes, we’ll work with you to get your disease under control to try and prevent the same thing from happening again. Alternately, if your symptoms were the result of spinal misalignment or slipped disc, we’ll combine chiropractic adjustments with anodyne therapy to help restore proper function and sensation.
