Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
in Richmond


Peripheral neuropathy is a complex disease that causes numbness, tingling, and pain in the hands and feet. There are many possible causes, such as diabetes, chemotherapy or infections.

The symptoms of neuropathy are commonly mistaken for other conditions such as arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome. If left untreated, these symptoms can lead to severe nerve damage, which may cause permanent disability.

At Chronic Care of Richmond, we have the expertise to help treat this condition with our advanced, non-surgical, non-drug techniques. Our expert staff will work with you one-on-one to find the right peripheral neuropathy treatment plan for your needs so that you can live life without any limitations!

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?


The peripheral nervous system (nervous system outside the brain and the spinal cord) is the area affected by neuropathy. Usually occuring in the hands or feet, it causes weakness, pain and numbness. Digestive, balance, urination and circulatory problems can also present themselves as a part of peripheral neuropathy.

Your peripheral nervous acts as the communication network between a person’s central nervous system and the rest of the body, which is why peripheral neuropathy can affect multiple parts of the body.

Neuropathy may be caused by traumatic injuries, metabolic issues, inherited diseases or exposure to toxic substances. Diabetes is the most common cause.

Neuropathy patients often describe their pain as stabbing or burning. Most cases can be improved with peripheral neuropathy treatment. The pain can also be reduced with medication.

Signs and Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy

Each nerve in your peripheral system performs a specific function. Therefore, symptoms of neuropathy vary depending on which nerves are affected. There are different types of nerves:

  • Sensory nerves: sense sensations such as temperature, pain, and vibration from the skin.
  • Motor nerves: control muscle movement.
  • The autonomic nerves: control functions like blood pressure, perspiration and heart rate.
Possible Signs and Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy Include:

  • Gradual onset or prickling sensations in your feet and hands. This sensation can spread to your legs, arms, and upper arms
  • Pain from activities that aren't supposed to cause pain, like pain in the feet when you put weight on them or when you're covered with a blanket
  • Sharp, sharp, throbbing, or burning pain
  • Extreme touch sensitivity
  • Inadequate coordination can lead to falling
  • Muscle weakness
  • Feeling like you're wearing socks or gloves when you aren’t
  • Paralysis occurs when motor nerves are affected
Signs and Symptoms That Could Indicate an Autonomic Nerve Problem Include:

  • Inability to tolerate heat
  • A drop in blood pressure can cause dizziness and feel lightheaded
  • Suffering excessively or not being capable of sweating
  • Bladder, bowel, or digestive concerns

Neuropathy may affect one nerve (mononeuropathy), multiple nerves in the same area (multiple mononeuropathies), and many nerves (polyneuropathy). Mononeuropathy is the most common form. Persons with peripheral neuropathy are most likely to have polyneuropathy.

Peripheral neuropathy treatment in Richmond could greatly improve your quality of life.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy


Peripheral nerves can be damaged by chemotherapy or other drugs used in the treatment of cancer. This onset is known as chemotherapy-induced neuropathy (CIPN), and it is a potentially fatal side effect of treatment for cancer.

CIPN can cause severe pain. It can lead to more severe changes such as heart rate changes, blood pressure, paralysis and organ failure. It can also affect your ability to walk, write and pick up coins. CIPN can be severe for several weeks, months or even years, depending on how long it is treated.


Other than Chemotherapy, Neuropathy can also be Caused By


  • Poor circulation (peripheral vascular disease)
  • Tumors are pressing nerves
  • Nerve infections
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Alcohol abuse
  • Shingles
  • Low levels of vitamin B
  • Some autoimmune disorders
  • HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) infection
  • Other treatments for cancer, such as surgery or radiation
It is crucial to understand what causes this condition to provide the best neuropathy treatment in Richmond.

Do You Suffer from Peripheral Neuropathy?


Neuropathy is a condition that can cause pain, numbness, and tingle in the hands, feet, or limbs. It’s often caused by diabetes or other medical conditions like alcoholism. If you have any of these symptoms, it’s essential to get them checked out right away because they could be an early sign of something more serious.

At Chronic Care of Richmond, we offer comprehensive treatment for all types of neuropathy, including diabetic nerve damage and post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). We also provide services for patients with carpal tunnel syndrome and sciatica.
