CAUSES OF NEUROPATHY
There is not a single underlying cause for neuropathy. In fact, there may be no known cause which is referred to as idiopathic and makes up nearly 40% of all neuropathies. Also, nearly 35% of the remaining Americans suffering from neuropathy have diabetes. In fact, almost 70% of Americans with diabetes have developed a form of neuropathy due to the disease. The remaining percent of neuropathies is composed of a group called acquired neuropathies. This group consists of causes such as:
- Poor nutrition and nutritional deficiencies
- Pressure on nerves
- Repetitive movements for extended periods of time
- Various autoimmune diseases
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Heavy metal poisoning
- Various medications
- Certain cancer treatments
- Hereditary neuropathies (from inherited disorders)
- Other diseases, including but not limited to:
- Lyme disease
- Liver disease
- Kidney disease

There are several risk factors ranging from lifestyle choices, behaviors and conditions.

Also, if a person has kidney disease, liver disease or a thyroid disorder they are more susceptible to developing neuropathy.

- Physical exam
- Neurological exam
- Tendon reflexes
- Muscular strength
- Muscular tone
- Sensory tests
- Postural analysis
- Coordination analysis
- Nerve conduction test
In some cases, a nerve biopsy may be requested by a physician.
COMMON NEUROPATHY TREATMENT OPTIONS
There have been several treatments developed for the treatment of neuropathies. Treatment options range from medications, creams, special diets, and therapies. All of these treatments are designed to assist in nervous system function. The most common course of treatment is prescription antidepressants to relieve pain in non-depressed patients. Research has also found that antidepressants can alleviate peripheral neuropathy induced from chemotherapy treatments. Anticonvulsants are another choice of treatment used for neuropathies. This type of medication is used because it blocks the incoming calcium within a neuron which ultimately inhibits the transmission of pain. A less favorable medication used is opioid narcotics. These are not used very often because of the chance the patient may become addicted and dependent although they are they usually the most effective for alleviating the pain. Topical creams that may be used are lidocaine or capsaicin. Our approach at New Leaf Chiropractic in Flower Mound is a drug-free natural option that doesn't require drugs or surgery!
