Chiropractic care can be used to help with many types of conditions. This can include anything from emotional distress to backaches to migraines. However, you may not be aware that peripheral nerve entrapment can also be treated with chiropractic care. This disorder is related to the malfunction of your peripheral nerves.
Each nerve in your body has its own job. That may be helping muscles move or sending signals to your brain and spinal cord. However, if one of these peripheral nerves becomes compressed, trapped, or injured, you may not be able to do a certain function. This can include moving your toes or fingers. You may also feel some pain in the area of the nerve. Sometimes, you might feel numbness or a stab, burring, tingling, or sharp pain.
Many times, the entrapment can cause a loss of sensation in the feet. However, this usually comes on gradually, rather than all at once. In fact, many people do not notice anything is wrong because of the gradual onset of the condition. Over time, however, the loss of sensation can cause balance problems. Other times, patients may develop sores on the feet that are not painful. This should be a warning sign because sores on the feet are usually painful.
Chiropractic care can reduce or even completely get rid of the problems and symptoms of an entrapped nerve. However, this condition often develops from other types of medical disorders. Malnutrition and diabetes can both cause peripheral nerve entrapment. It is often considered to be a warning sign of a major medical condition or poor health. You should seek medical care at the first sign of this condition.
Chiropractic therapy can reduce the symptoms of this disorder. In some cases, it might even be able to completely eliminate the condition. One of the benefits of getting chiropractic care is that it does not simply cover the symptoms like other types of treatments do. Instead, its goal is to eliminate the source of the problem. This can help you improve your overall health and reduce any other possible medical conditions.
Another benefit of chiropractic care is that it seeks to treat your body as a whole. It can bring each of the systems in your body into alignment. That way, each system, including the nervous system, will be under regulation. This is what helps to eliminate the condition instead of just the numbness and pain that go with it. When your body is treated with the goal of overall health, you can eliminate symptoms of many conditions and problems at one time. You can improve your treatment by paying attention to exercise, your overall health, and your diet.
