Peripheral neuropathy refers to a condition in which there is damage or dysfunction of the peripheral nervous system.
This system includes all the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord, which control movement, sensation, and other bodily functions.
The most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include pain, tingling, numbness, weakness, and burning sensations in the hands, feet, arms, or legs. These symptoms may be localized to one area or may be widespread throughout the body.
Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by a variety of factors, including diabetes, spinal degeneration, alcoholism, chemotherapy, autoimmune diseases, infections, and inherited genetic disorders.
Treatment options vary depending on the underlying cause but may include medications, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes to manage symptoms and prevent further nerve damage.
Our Approach to Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments
The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is designed to treat Scoliosis, a condition where the spine curves to the side. The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is a non-invasive treatment approach that uses a flexible brace to address the curvature of the spine and improve posture and function.
In many cases, Scoliosis and Peripheral Neuropathy may occur together, particularly in older adults. When the curvature of the spine creates pressure on the peripheral nerves exiting the spinal column for a prolonged period of time, the nerves can start to malfunction and ultimately start to atrophy.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy start to display themselves. When this happens, we need to address the nerve compression through a combination of approaches. These approaches may include dynamic bracing, chiropractic care, and even exercises or physical therapy when necessary.
The primary goal of The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is to stop the progression of curvature. It takes the unwanted weight off the joints and structures of the spine that are causing the pain. The second goal is to stabilize and strengthen the spine. And the third goal is to offer any correction if possible. Overall, improves quality of life.
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves outside the spinal cord and brain. It is not directly related to scoliosis or the use of a SpineCor brace.
However, some medical conditions that cause peripheral neuropathy, such as Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, can also cause scoliosis. In these cases, a SpineCor brace may be used as part of a treatment plan to manage scoliosis. However, it would not directly treat the underlying peripheral neuropathy.
