Neuropathy refers to a group of medical conditions that damage the peripheral nervous system, which transmits signals between the central nervous system and the limbs, organs, and muscles. While neuropathic symptoms may start as minor, they often worsen if neglected. If you are seeking a chiropractor in Ann Arbor, contact Performance Health Chiropractic to learn how Dr. Timothy Dehr’s chiropractic therapies and other complementary natural treatment options address the cause of neuropathy and neuropathic symptoms.


Defining Neuropathy

Nerves transmit electrochemical signals between the brain, spinal cord, and various parts of the body. Peripheral neuropathic conditions can manifest in different ways:

    • Mono-neuropathically – affecting a single nerve

    • Multiple neuropathy – involving multiple mononeuropathy or polyneuropathy

Common Symptoms of Neuropathy

Symptoms of neuropathic conditions can vary, depending on the nerve and condition:

    • Shooting or burning pain

    • Numbness or tingling in extremities

    • Muscle weakness or fatigue

    • Digestive or bladder issues

    • Diminished coordination

    • Changes in the health of hair, nails, or skin

Causes of Neuropathy

The causes of neuropathy, like its symptoms, vary and include:

    • Trauma or injury: Neuropathy can result from incidents, accidents, or nerve injuries such as fractures from repetitive stress.

    • Autoimmune diseases: Certain autoimmune disorders can exacerbate inflammation and are often precursors to neuropathy, including:

        ◦ Diabetes (among the most common causes)

        ◦ Rheumatoid arthritis

        ◦ Guillain-Barré syndrome

        ◦ Lupus, and others

    • Bacterial or viral infections: Conditions like Lyme disease, shingles, and HIV/AIDS can lead to neuropathy.

    • Vitamin deficiencies: Deficiencies in vitamins B1, B6, B12, or vitamin E may contribute to nerve damage.

    • Medications and toxins: Side effects of medications and exposure to industrial chemicals or heavy metals may cause neuropathy.
