The causes of neuropathy are:
The causes of neuropathy are compression of the nerves as they branch out from the spine. It starts here, before reaching it's destination, i.e., legs, feet, arms, hands. The peripheral nervous system is part of your central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord. There are nerves branching out of the spinal cord and extend to serve the extremities, (arms and legs in particular). When these nerves are affected by compression, the result is neuropathy.
Forms of peripheral neuropathy are sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, restless leg syndrome, to mention a few.
Sciatica results from compression of the sciatic nerve from the lower back (lumbar spine) due to herniated discs, disc bulges, disc degeneration (spinal arthritis), and misalignment of the vertebra. This results in pins & needles in the legs and feet, numbness and/or pain. Carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by the compression of nerves in the wrist, resulting in pain, weakness and numbness of the hands and fingers. There also are neurological reasons that causes neuropathy. MS is also a neurological cause of neuropathy.
Neuropathy can also disrupt the blood flow and oxygen to the legs and feet. While obtaining the proper treatment for peripheral neuropathy, the necessary nutrients can then reach its destination, and further heal the affected part, thus commence in normal functioning.
Research proves that the most effective means of care of neuropathy is via quality chiropractic care.
