Neuropathy is a disorder that affects the peripheral nervous system (nerves outside the brain and spinal cord).  The nerves are damaged and can result in numbness, tingling, and/or pain in the extremities.  There are many causes of neuropathy including trauma to the nerves, tumors which can impinge on a nerve, malnutrition and lack of essential vitamins, and other diseases and disorders which can damage nerves.  The main cause of neuropathy, however, is diabetes which accounts for 30% of all neuropathy cases.

For some people the main symptom is pain in the form of a burning sensation in the affected extremities.  The hands and feet are most often affected, but whole limbs may feel the effects as well.  The pain often becomes worse at night making it difficult to sleep.  For other people suffering with neuropathy the danger is the numbness that accompanies it.  The lack of blood flow and nerve action in the affected area results in a lack of feeling.  When this happens, trauma to the affected area may not be felt.  A cut or blister can go unnoticed because of the numbness.  The lack of blood flow makes it difficult for the body to heal the wound, which can result in open sores and even gangrene.

Chiropractic can help treat neuropathy by relieving pain and restoring feeling.  The spine is the hub of the nervous system, and if there are misalignments in the spine it could be causing the neuropathy.  Misaligned vertebrae or discs that are herniated can be putting pressure on nerves that cause them to not function properly.  With a chiropractic adjustment, the spine is put back into proper alignment allowing for improved nervous system performance.  Chiropractic massage can also be incorporated into your treatment.  This stimulates blood flow to the affected areas which can improve feeling in the area and relieve pain.

You don’t have to live with the pain and discomfort caused by neuropathy.  Even if you have already tried traditional medicines and treatments without success, there is hope.  Schedule a consultation today so that we can develop a treatment plan for you.


Hear our patients explain how we helped them with Neuropathy!


"I was having balance problems with I was doing water aerobics. I realized that I didn't have any feeling in my feet and couldn't stand on one foot for very long at all. Due to diabetes, I had been losing feeling in my feet over the last 2 years. If I touched my feet with my hand, they were ice cold; otherwise, I could never tell. I told my medical doctor about my feet but he never suggested any treatment. The treatment that Dr. Reilly recommended have made a big difference in my life. My toes now have a pink color instead of looking gray. My feet are rarely cold now but when they do get cold, I can feel it. I have told others how much this has helped me."

For about two years I had this sharp stabbing pain in my feet that only lasted a few seconds. After about a year and a half of this pain, I started having numbness in my feet and they stayed cold all of the time. I had read about chiropractors that had successfully treated Neuropathy. My wife searched on the internet and luckily found Dr Reilly. After just a few treatments my feet started having better circulation and were no longer cold all of the time. Also, the stabbing pain became less and less over time. I am now nearing the end of my recommended treatment sessions and I am well satisfied with the outcome of my treatment. I would recommend Dr. Reilly and his staff to anyone suffering from the pain and numbness of Neuropathy. He and his staff are very professional, courteous, caring and dedicated to what they do and that is to help relieve pain and suffering.

"I am 72 years old, and a track coach for Reynolds High School. My experience with Dr. Reilly at Fairview Chiropractic Center was outstanding and highly effective, and his treatments of my feet for tingling and numbness really worked. Today the amount of discomfort and numbness is almost totally gone, and this is a direct result of Dr. Reilly's expertise. The staff at his center are wonderful, very caring and professional as well. I cannot recommend Dr. Reilly enough!"

dr_steve.jpgI am a 72 year old physician with Type II diabetes. I have had a problem with my feet for 6 years with neuropathy. Bad orthotics caused a breakdown in my left foot with infection, pain and swelling. Antibiotics, local care and acupuncture healed my wound but left me with increased neuropathy, swelling and severely limited my exercise. In as much as I use diet and exercise to control my diabetes, this was a bad problem.

I was seen at Fairview Chiropractic Center, evaluated and a treatment course of 16 treatments including Class 4 laser, manipulation and Graston treatments to my feet, ankles and calves was prescribed.

After 5 treatments I am walking and exercising pain free and my neuropathy is reduced by 60 percent. I would recommend Fairview Chiropractic Center to anyone with my condition.

~ Dr. Steve S.
