Do you have numbness in hands or feet? | Edling Chiropractic

Do you have numbness in hands or feet?

One of the most common complaints which people come in for is numbness or tingling in their hands or feet, sharp electric type of pain, cramping, pain when walking, difficulty sleeping from leg discomfort, prickling or tingling feelings.

This is not a good sign since it means your nerve cells or neurons are dying!

The typical treatment medically for this is a med called Neurontin.

Would you rather fix the underlying problem rather than cover it up with drugs?

One of the mot common causes of Peripheral Neuropathy(P.N.) is poor blood sugar regulation over years.

Pre-diabetes, insulin resistance, syndrome X, or diabetes is one of the most common causes of P.N.

It is imperative that your diet change big time in order for the blood sugar to come down.  You can take metformin or insulin but in many cases just hard core good nutrition can make a signifigant positive changes in blood sugar and eventually P.N.can be improved.

There are also a host of other strategies I use like vibration, adjusting, laser, ARP wave to turn those nerve cells on and wake them up.

When you can’t feel your feet you can’t sense where your feet are in space and then you are more likely to fall and break a hip or injure yourself.  80% of people over 80 who break a hip are dead within a year.  Ususally you are in a nursing home after surgery for a hip and recovery can take months.

I’m passionate about working with people who have peripheral neuropathy because it runs in my family.  I have a huge history of diabetes and my dad had horrible neuropathy.  He’d scream at night the pain in his feet were so bad.

The ARP machine works great at getting the sensation back in the feet.  It also works part of the brain called your parietal lobe which helps sense where your feet are in space.

Another strategy for people who have peripheral neuropathy is they must go gluten free.  One of the most common problems with peopel with P.N. is an auto-immune issue where the immune system attacks the nerve cells and you start loosing feeling in your feet.  Gluten sensitivity is a major cause of this and other neuro-metabolic conditions.  Anyone with an auto-immune condition has to go gluten and dairy free.

It’s unbelievable how bad P.N. can be for people. I do a test called 2 point discrimination where you touch 1, 2, or 3 different areas on your lower leg.   You should be able to tell me how many fingers I am touching you. Boy, I tell you what, that would make me feel nervous if I couldn’t tell how many areas that someone is touching me in.  Dying nerves are not good.  If you have dying nerves you also have a brain that is degenerating.

Sometimes your meds can make your neuropathy worse.  One of the most common one’s statin drugs.  This lowers the amount of Co-Q 10  so you must be taking this supplement if on statins.  I’d rather look to the cause versus just treating effects.

If you have or know someone who has peripheral neuropathy  and would like to know what can be done about it using the newest clinically proven therapies just email me steve@dredling.com or call me 715-417-0496 for a consultation.

Homecoming parade.

What a fun homecoming week it was here in Osceola.  The Chieftains beat up on a bigger Prescott team and won 36-0.  We ran outside and threw all night long.  This friday is at Durand.  We win and we wil be in playoffs!  Good luck to Meredith Nelson and the Osceola girls golf team as they have regionals today in Cumberland.
