What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy is nerve damage that typically leads to pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness in the affected area. While neuropathy can occur nearly anywhere on your body, it’s most common in the hands, arms, feet, and legs.

Are there different types of neuropathy?

At Inner Alchemy Acupuncture, Dr. Baron can treat many different types of neuropathy, including:

  • Diabetic neuropathy 
    High blood pressure caused by untreated diabetes can lead to nerve damage, particularly in your legs and feet. Without proper care, this can cause tingling, burning, and pain in your lower limbs. In some cases, diabetic neuropathy can even lead to a loss of limbs.
  • Inflammatory polyneuropathy 
    Inflammatory polyneuropathy occurs when your body’s peripheral nerves — those outside of the brain and spinal cord — malfunction. This can be the result of certain cancers, infections, toxins, and even drugs.
  • Post-chemo neuropathy
    Many types of chemotherapy can affect the sensory nerves in your hands and feet, even after you’ve finished treatment.

How does acupuncture treat neuropathy?

Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that involves stimulating nerve-rich areas of the skin. This stimulation improves blood flow and reduces inflammation to enhance tissue repair. It also releases endorphins, which can relieve pain and discomfort associated with nerve damage.

By activating your body’s self-healing ability, Acupuncture can reduce neuropathic pain without the high risks of surgery or medication.

Dr. Baron also offers Acupoint Injection Therapy (AIT), which uses the highest quality vitamin, homeopathic, and herbal injectable solutions to accelerate your results.

How can I maintain my results after Acupuncture?

Regular Acupuncture treatments help stimulate blood circulation in your body to relieve neuropathic pain and discomfort. You can help maintain your results and boost your recovery at home by taking Chinese Herbal Medicine as prescribed by Inner Alchemy Acupuncture.

If you’re ready for an effective and lasting neuropathy treatment that takes advantage of your body’s natural healing abilities, acupuncture may be right for you. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Baron, call Inner Alchemy Acupuncture or book online today.
