Additionally, Dr. Skocik treats secondary cases of neuropathy that occur in conjunction with spinal stenosis and failed surgery syndrome. Neuropathy is a medical term describing various injuries and diseases of the nervous system. A neuropathy diagnosis means that one or more of your nerves have been damaged, affecting the nerve’s ability to send or receive signals from the brain. As a result, you may experience numbness, tingling, weakness or loss of feeling in the affected body part. Over time without effective treatment, this numbness may spread or worsen. In some cases, muscle weakness could intensify to paralysis.
Neuropathy treatment depends on the cause. For example, if tight or inflamed blood vessels are compressing the nerve and triggering irritation, massage therapy may be an effective treatment option. Misaligned joints in the extremities or back may also be affecting the nerve’s ability to send signals to and from the brain. Correcting these misalignments will reduce signal interference and minimize pain. Dr. Skocik is one of the only chiropractors serving Harrisburg, Hershey, Progress, Colonial Park, Lower Paxton, and Grantville, PA to offer the innovative Thor laser therapy treatment. Thor laser therapy uses low level lasers for tissue healing, inflammation relief, and pain relief.
In addition to Thor laser therapy, physical therapy can help increase a patient’s range of motion and further reduce daily pain. The goal of our physical therapy treatments is to progressively increase range of motion through stretching, isometric exercises and weights. Depending on the trigger cause for your neuropathy pain, these physical therapy treatments may be beneficial for bringing mobility, balance and strength back to the body.
In some cases, neuropathy may be linked to a nutritional deficiency or chronic ailment. In-depth nutrition testing allows our Harrisburg chiropractor to identify the specific nutritional deficiencies and create a custom treatment program to address this deficiency.
