What Are Some Treatment Options for Neuropathy?

treatment for Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a condition that is characterized by damage in the peripheral nerves, leading to symptoms such as chronic pain, persistent weakness, and lasting numbness in different areas of the body. The causes of neuropathy vary from case to case but having diabetes can make you more vulnerable to it. If you suffer from neuropathy, these are some of the treatment options for neuropathy that may be recommended to you:

Treating the Underlying Cause

If the cause of an individual’s neuropathy is known or suspected, the first option may be to focus on treating it. If neuropathy is a complication of diabetes, the answer may be to monitor the person’s blood sugar levels to bring the condition under control. If someone is suffering from a vitamin deficiency, vitamin therapy can help to reverse their neuropathy.

Physical Therapy

Neuropathy can severely harm a person’s quality of life and make it difficult for them to perform their usual daily activities, so physical therapy is likely to be part of any treatment plan for the condition. If it is carried out safely under a specialist’s supervision, physical therapy can combat neuropathy by strengthening muscles and increasing flexibility.

Wave Therapy

Wave therapy is a relatively recent approach to treatment that involves using acoustic waves to target any areas of the body that are experiencing symptoms of neuropathy. The waves are low-pressure and will not disturb the patient, but they do have a beneficial effect on the body, providing relief from pain. Wave therapy is both non-invasive and non-traumatic, so it’s especially appealing to many patients.
