A peripheral neuropathy condition may be indicated by numbness or tingling sensations in the lower or upper extremities. From between the neck vertebrae, nerve roots branch out and join to form the arms’ major nerves. In the lower back, nerve roots join to form the major nerves of the legs. Sensory disturbances may occur if these peripheral nerves are compressed in any way. In most cases, a bulging disc or bony arthritic projections cause this compression to occur where the nerve root exits the spine.
If, after examination, it is determined that treatment at the Wellness Institute of Nevada is appropriate, treatment may include chiropractic adjustments, modalities, extremity manipulation and exercises. If further evaluation is determined appropriate, the patient may be referred to an orthopedic doctor or MRI facility.
