Neuropathic pain is a collection of disorders that crop up when the nerves of the part of the nervous system outside the brain and spinal cord are damaged. It usually causes pain and numbness in the hands and feet. McHenry neuropathic pain patients may find that it results from injury, infections, metabolic disorders such as diabetes, and toxin exposure. Neuropathy may cause muscle movement due to nerve damage and also irritate nerves that affect internal organs such as the heart, blood vessels, urinary bladder and intestines. Neuropathic pain can be described as numbness, tingling, or burning. It may affect a single nerve, two or more nerves or result in more generalized pain as in diabetic neuropathy or Guillain-Barre syndrome. Neuropathy commonly affects both legs and feet. Onset may be sudden or gradual with muscle weakness, cramps, or spasm. Sufferers may find difficulty with walking, running, stumbling, and fatigue. Balance may be impaired.

None of these symptoms sound inviting, but your McHenry chiropractic physician invites sufferers with these symptoms to OrthoIllinois Chiropractic. Confident that its McHenry chiropractic care plan with Cox Technic spinal manipulation as a central part of it will relieve, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic looks forward to seeing you and assisting in your care.
