What is neuropathy?
Neuropathy is a condition in which the nerves of the extremities become damaged. According to John Hopkins Medical, there are over 100 types of neuropathy with a variety of symptoms and causes. Different types affect different nerves, including motor nerves, sensory nerves, and autonomic nerves. Each type causes a different presentation of symptoms.
Symptoms often include:
- Weakness and degeneration of affected areas
- Numbness and tingling
- Loss of coordination or function
- Emotional and sleep disruptions
At their core, neuropathic conditions are the result of nerves damaged by wear and tear, diseases, injuries, or other factors.
How can Fairview Chiropractic Center help neuropathy patients?
Our staff at Fairview Chiropractic Center in Fairview, NC, has treated many cases of neuropathy using various treatment methods. We evaluate our patients on a case-by-case basis to determine the ideal course of treatment for each individual. Dr. Reilly frequently uses the following treatment methods with his neuropathy patients:
- Laser Therapy:
We provide class IV laser therapy using our 30-watt laser, which is the strongest in the area. Class III, class II, class I, and infrared therapy are also available. Laser therapy is able to relieve pain and stimulate healing responses in the body. The process is generally pain-free and side-effect free, providing a minimally-invasive method of treatment.
- Spinal Decompression Traction:
Spinal decompression traction is a practice that reduces pressure on the spine. This is done by creating a pull, or traction, on the patient's body that allows their spine to stretch back out to normal. This process can help with neuropathy caused by pinched nerves and other spinal conditions, such as herniated discs.
If you are experiencing any type of neuropathy, it is important to treat it promptly and appropriately since this disease can get worse over time. If you're in the Fairview, NC, area, we encourage you to book an initial consultation with Dr. Reilly at Fairview Chiropractic Center. Having lectured about neuropathy treatment on international stages, he is more than qualified to treat most cases of neuropathy.

Your neuropathy pain may be treated using one the following Advanced Regenerative Therapies, most found together nowhere else in North Carolina!
Pulse Electro-Magnetic Frequency Therapy (PEMF)
Developed in Europe and refined by NASA, this energy field therapy rapidly re-energizes all cells in the body. The magnetic frequency enables our cells to pulse, detox, and revitalize. This detox process requires extensive water in the body, so you will be thirsty. Many people find the impulse is more intense at the site of an injury, however the energy from the machine finds damage, even if it is unaddressed.
