What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy refers to any disease or malfunction of the nerves. It can result from injury or disease.
Some Common Types of Neuropathy Include
- Diabetic Neuropathy – Over fifty percent of people with diabetes will develop diabetic neuropathy. Generally starting at the feet, followed by the hands, diabetic neuropathy begins with numbness and/or a tingling feeling. If left untreated it can progress to pain and a decrease in muscle strength. Advancements in diabetic neuropathy treatment allow our specialists to diagnose and treat the condition in ways that have not been possible in the recent past. In some cases, even reversing progress is possible.
- Peripheral Neuropathy – This disorder affects the peripheral nerves causing problems in motor, autonomic, and sensory nerves. It can develop as a result of various sources. Noticeable first in the feet and hands, the initial symptoms include numbness, weakness, pain, and tingling. The condition will come and go for some patients while others experience debilitating pain. Peripheral neurology is an often misdiagnosed condition. Our neurologists are skilled at diagnosing, treating, and managing peripheral neuropathy. When caught early, the condition is frequently controllable.
- Cranial Neuropathy – Cranial nerves are those that stem from the brain. When any of these twelve nerves are damaged, it is categorized as cranial neuropathy. Optic neuropathy, audio neuropathy, and Bell’s palsy are a few specific types of this condition. Just a few symptoms of these conditions include disruptions to vision, hearing, facial musculature, movement, and pain. Neuropathy treatment for these conditions varies depending on the cause. We will diagnose the type of condition a patient has and formulate a cranial neuropathy treatment plan specific to the cause and symptoms.
Neuropathy Diagnosis and Treatment
