If you are suffering from Peripheral Neuropathy come find relief at the Peoria Chiropractor Clinic of Dr. Justin Tuttle. Peripheral neuropathy is damage to nerves of the peripheral nervous system, which may be caused either by diseases of or trauma to the nerve or the side effects of systemic illness. Below is a video testimonial of one of Dr. Justin Tuttle’s patients.
Those with peripheral neuropathy can have the following symptoms. In terms of sensory function, there are commonly loss of function symptoms, which include numbness, tremor, and gait abnormality. Other symptoms include tingling, pain, itching, crawling, and pins and needles. Pain can become intense.
Motor symptoms include loss of function symptoms of weakness, tiredness, heaviness, and gait abnormalities, cramps, tremor, and muscle twitch.
We have found at our Peoria Chiropractor Clinic, those with generalized peripheral neuropathies most commonly have distal sensory or motor and sensory loss, though those with a pathology (problem) of the nerves may be perfectly normal; may show proximal weakness, as in some inflammatory neuropathies like Guillain–Barré syndrome; or may show focal sensory disturbance or weakness, such as in mononeuropathies. Ankle jerk reflex is classically absent in peripheral neuropathy.
