If you’re experiencing the burning, stabbing, or crushing pain of neuropathy, you probably just want relief and to live your normal life. About 10 percent of Americans have neuropathy and struggle to maintain their normal lifestyle due to its symptoms.
At NIVA Health, we have a highly successful neuropathy treatment program for our patients. Here’s more about how it could help with your neuropathy pain.
Neuropathy Pain Can Respond to Non-Drug Treatments
Neuropathy pain stems from damage to nerves that control movement, sensation, and automatic processes in the body – things such as blood pressure and urinary continence. When damaged due to diseases such as diabetes, trauma, or even exposure to environmental toxins, nerves send incorrect signals to the brain. Poor balance, fatigue, numbness and tingling, and pain in the hands, feet, and legs can result.
Many people rely on surgery and heavy medications to control the substantial and disabling pain associated with neuropathy. However, there are non-drug and natural therapies that reduce inflammation, increase circulation, and help the body heal and function well.
At NIVA Health, we offer platelet-rich plasma therapy, red light therapy, and more to relieve pain and other symptoms of neuropathy. Painless and drug-free, these in-office treatments gradually improve nerve health, increase beneficial circulation, and provide healing factors to give patients lasting relief from pain.
Lifestyle Modifications Can Help Relieve Neuropathy Pain
Besides innovative clinical therapies, basic lifestyle modifications can help reduce neuropathy symptoms, including pain, numbness, and tingling. Your care provider can discuss lifestyle changes with you and help you track your progress.
Effective lifestyle modifications to relieve neuropathy pain are the following.
Consuming a Healthy Diet
Dietary changes also help people control their blood pressure and blood glucose levels – metabolic problems that often co-exist with neuropathy. Nutritionists recommend a diet rich in leafy, green vegetables, whole grains, and nuts. Fish and fish oil supplements are must-haves, too.
Carefully regulated Vitamin B supplements are beneficial, too, as is curcumin, which is known for its anti-inflammatory effects and ability to regulate metabolism.
Being Physically Active
Exercise can be challenging when you are in pain or experience the fatigue commonly associated with neuropathy. Your provider can help you set realistic daily activity goals and refer you for physical therapy to improve your muscular strength, endurance, balance, and coordination.
