Tallahassee, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2016 -- Peripheral neuropathy affects approximately 20 million Americans, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. Damage to the peripheral nerve system not only causes pain, but also affects the brain's ability to effectively communicate with every part of the body. Peripheral neuropathy symptoms range from mild tingling and numbness to prickling sensations. While the numbness usually begins in the fingers, it can spread throughout the hands and the feet. As the condition worsens, it may feel like a throbbing or freezing pain sensation.
"Everyone experiences peripheral neuropathy a little differently," says Dr. Elton Powell, Tallahassee Chiropractor, who specializes in peripheral neuropathy patients at his practice, Dynamic Spine and Wellness Center in Tallahassee, Florida.
Dr. Powell stressed that peripheral neuropathy pain symptoms are a critical indicator of a very serious and often life-threatening problem and should not be ignored. A diagnostic nerve severity exam can help determine the root cause for a patient's pain and the severity of the nerve damage a patient has incurred. This will dictate which and how much care is needed.
Once diagnosed with PN, proper treatment can prevent future damage, as well as to maintain quality of life. Up until recently, treatment has been primarily with medications that mask the symptoms. Now there are new treatment options that actually reverse the signs and symptoms of PN.
"As an avid runner, I'm no stranger to pain. Dr. Powell is a truly gifted doctor who has the skills to identify and solve your pain-- whatever the type. He and his staff really cares about their patients and I would highly recommend him to anyone," Scott Lindeman (5-star review on Google).
Dynamic Spine and Wellness Center is hosting a free monthly seminar to share information about Peripheral Neuropathy and new treatments that are available. If prescription medication hasn't worked for you, you owe it to yourself to learn about Dr. Powell's Therapy.
