New Treatment For Peripheral Neuropathy
If you have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, or believe that you have peripheral neuropathy, you have probably been to over a dozen doctors by now. The signs and symptoms of peripheral neuropathy are different from one person to another.
There are several types of neuropathy. There is diabetic neuropathy. There is mononeuropathy. There is multi-complex neuropathy and polyneuropathy. The one thing in common with this neuropathy condition is that it has got nerve fibers that are being affected. What patients are generally feeling is pain, itching, or electric shock-like sensations. Some have cramping. Some have a numbness or a tingling. It is very common to see a glove or sock distribution, so around the hands and fingers and around the ankles and into the feet. This neuropathy can be constant sometimes for people. Sometimes it is activated by standing or moving. Sometimes it happens when you are sitting still. If you have got diabetic neuropathy, polyneuropathy, or mononeuropathy, which are all types of peripheral neuropathy, those are the types of signs and symptoms that you are going to see.

What Makes Treating Peripheral Neuropathy at Lynch Chiropractic Health Center Different
Now what I, Dr. Keith. P. Lynch, am going to share with you today is what makes us at Lynch Chiropractic Health Center different than all the other doctors that you have been seeing. Now if you have been diagnosed with neuropathy, you have probably been treated with Amitriptyline. You have probably been treated with Gabapentin or Lyrica for your peripheral neuropathy.
Some Prescribed Medications Were Not Made To Treat Peripheral Neuropathy
What you need to know about these medications is that they were not designed for peripheral neuropathy. This is what is called off-label use of prescription medication. Amitriptyline is an anti-depressant. Gabapentin and Lyrica are anti-seizure and anti-convulsant drugs. Basically what I’m telling you is if you have been diagnosed with neuropathy, and that is what you are taking, what you are doing is you are playing Russian Roulette with those drugs. You are just taking them hoping that it is going to give you some kind of relief. For many people, it does give them some relief.
Now please, I’m not telling you not to take your medications. That would be considered practicing medicine without a license. We do not do that here. What I am telling you is you need to reconsider what you are doing if you are still experiencing the signs and symptoms of neuropathy. We treat patients metabolically and neurologically for peripheral neuropathy.
