This chronic condition can severely impact your quality of life. Fortunately, our team of experts is here to help.


What Is Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy?

Diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN) is a type of nerve damage that can occur in people with diabetes. It typically affects the feet and legs, but can also impact the hands and arms. DPN occurs when high blood sugar levels cause damage to the small blood vessels that supply oxygen and nutrients to the nerves. This damage can lead to the development of nerve fibers that don't function properly.

DPN can cause a variety of symptoms, including:

  • Numbness or tingling in the feet or legs
  • Pain or cramping in the feet or legs
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of balance or coordination
  • Poor circulation

If left untreated, DPN can lead to more serious complications, such as ulcers, infections, and bone or joint deformities.

How A Chiropractor Can Help

At Northwest Wellness Center, we take a comprehensive approach to treating DPN. In addition to providing chiropractic care and sports injury rehabilitation, we also offer nutritional counseling and diabetes education. These services can help you manage your condition and improve your overall health.

In addition, our chiropractors will also work with you to create a customized treatment plan that may include:

  • Spinal manipulation
  • Exercise and stretching
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Weight loss assistance
  • Diabetes education
  • Massage therapy
  • Ankle and foot care

These chiropractic care techniques are designed to relieve pain, improve circulation, and promote healing. For people with DPN, a combination of these treatments might be necessary to improve your symptoms.

To find which treatment is best for you, Dr. Briggs or Dr. Jay will perform a comprehensive evaluation. This will help them develop a personalized treatment plan that is right for them.

Using your individualized treatment plan, our team of experts will work with you to help improve your symptoms and quality of life. We will also continue to monitor your progress and tweak our adjustments to ensure your nerve functioning improves.
