What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is the damage or malfunctioning of the peripheral nerves that connect the central nervous system to the rest parts of the body.

Neuropathy is a progressive disease that can get worse over time, if not treated.

We encourage all of our clients to catch the disease before it goes into a non-treatable condition.

The damage of peripheral nerves may be caused due to a number of factors such as:

  • Systemic diseases like diabetes, hyperthyroidism, alcohol abuse, chronic inflammation, cancer and tumors, vitamin deficiency, kidney disorders and liver diseases.

  • Injuries from sports, falling, dental work and vehicle accidents. Infectious diseases like HIV, leprosy, virus infection, diphtheria, shingles and others.

  • Autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and Sjogren’s syndrome.
