Acupuncture for Peripheral Neuropathy
More than 20 million people in the United States have been estimated to have some form of peripheral neuropathy, which is a result of damage to the nerves located outside of the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves), and this damage is commonly caused by lack of blood flow in the hands and feet. A lack of blood flow results in a lack of nutrients; the nerves then begin to degenerate and die which causes pain ranging from discomfort to debilitating.
Our technique focuses on increasing blood flow by stimulating blood vessels for regrowth providing the peripheral nerves with the proper nutrients to heal and repair.
Indeed, studies show that acupuncture is an effective treatment for peripheral neuropathy. The idea is to prevent disease by keeping the nerves active and engaged.
