If you are suffering from peripheral neuropathy, you know how debilitating it can be. Not only does it cause pain and numbness in your extremities, but it can also interfere with your ability to work, live a normal life, and enjoy time with family and friends. Traditional medical treatments with opioids and psychotropic drugs are not the answer. Chiropractors are in a unique position to safely and effectively apply laser treatment for peripheral neuropathy delivered from a therapeutic laser. In this blog post, we will explore the benefits of laser treatment for peripheral neuropathy and how chiropractors can help you get relief from your symptoms!
What is peripheral neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition in which the nerves in the peripheries of the body are damaged. This can cause pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the affected area. Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves and can be caused by various medical conditions. The most common cause of neuropathy in people with diabetes goes untreated because they don't know how to manage their symptoms effectively or at all - resulting ultimately poor blood circulation which compromises nutrient supply as well oxygen delivery towards distal parts like feet/hands where tissues are prone for developing peripheral detects, but it can also be caused by other conditions such as alcoholism, certain drug injuries, infections, and vitamin deficiencies.
How does laser treatment work?
Laser therapy works by delivering deep penetrating light energy into the tissue to promote healing. The light energy is absorbed by the cells and converted into ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This increases cell metabolism, which leads to the production of new proteins and the release of anti-inflammatory mediators. Therapeutic lasers are the most powerful and effective type of laser available on the market today. They are different from other types of lasers because they can penetrate deeper into the tissue to promote healing.
What are the benefits of laser treatment?
There are many benefits of laser treatment for peripheral neuropathy, including:
- Reduced pain
- Reduced inflammation
- Improved nerve function
- Improved blood flow
- Reduced muscle spasms
- Improved range of motion
Laser therapy has been shown to help relieve pain quickly and easily, which is great for people who are in a lot of discomforts. It also helps the healing process go more smoothly so you'll have an easier time getting better outcomes from your treatments!
Traditional medical treatments: Why they are not the answer
While neuropathy can't be reversed, there are a variety of management methods that medical professionals suggest in order to help alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by this complication. These treatments target only symptoms which make daily life just a little more bearable for those who suffer from sensory issues as well; however, it does not affect their long-term health overall since medications will always need replacing eventually due to local damage done on an individual's organs during chronic use (such as kidney or liver).
Traditional medical treatments for peripheral neuropathy often rely on opioids and psychotropic drugs. While these drugs may provide some relief from symptoms, they come with a host of risks and side effects. Opioids, in particular, are highly addictive and can lead to overdose and death. In addition, traditional treatments do not address the underlying cause of peripheral neuropathy, so the condition will likely continue to progress and worsen over time.
Chiropractors and laser treatment: How this cutting-edge treatment can help!
Chiropractors are in a unique position to safely and effectively apply laser treatment for peripheral neuropathy delivered from a therapeutic laser. Laser therapy can provide relief from symptoms and help to improve nerve function and blood flow. It works by stimulating blood circulation, which is beneficial because the lack of supply around distal parts due to increased glucose levels causes damage to nerves that may lead to being repaired with essential nutrients and oxygen flow through them again helping optimize functionality; this process also relieves other symptoms associated such as inflammation or wound healing depending on extent complication requires multiple treatments per week but none are painful. In addition, because laser therapy targets the underlying cause of the condition, it can help to prevent the condition from progressing and getting worse over time.
