Neuropathy and Polyneuropathy
Integrative Treatments for Neuropathy and Polyneuropathy
Do you feel numbing, tingling, or weakness in certain areas of your body? If so, you may be suffering from a type of neuropathy. Neuropathy affects over 20 million Americans and can be caused by genetic factors, or can surface due to trauma and internal diseases.
Whether you’re suffering from neuropathy in one nerve type (peripheral neuropathy), or you’re suffering neuropathy across a combination of different peripheral nerves (polyneuropathy) you can try Infuse MD’s Integrative treatments to get the relief you desire.
What is Neuropathy?
Your peripheral nervous system is made up of sensory, motor, and autonomic nerves. When any of these nerves are damaged you face neuropathy leading to a loss of control over important bodily functions.
Motor nerves control your movements by sending signals from your brain to the muscles in your body. Damaged motor nerves result in difficulty moving, walking, and controlling your muscles.
Sensory nerves help you experience touch and pain by sending signals from your muscles back to your brain. Damaged sensory nerves result in numbness, sensitivity, and pain.
3. Autonomic nerves
Autonomic nerves are responsible for controlling your involuntary functions such as your blood pressure, heart rate, and digestion.Damaged autonomic nerves lead to nausea, problems with urination, and sexual dysfunction.
What is Polyneuropathy
Your peripheral nerves travel from your spinal cord to your internal organs, muscles, glands, and skin to help your body function properly. In regular neuropathy, only one or two nerve types are damaged. However, in polyneuropathy, several types of nerves malfunction at the same time, and this is one of the most common forms of neuropathy.
