Acupuncture for neuropathy is able to restore nerve damage, relieve discomfort, and stimulate blood flow. Acupuncture focuses on encouraging the body to promote its self-healing abilities, and eliminate any underlying cause of neuropathy. There are 3 – 6 million cases of neuropathy in the United States alone each year, and with that big of a number, that’s where acupuncture steps in to help with results that last long after your session ends.
Acupuncture can treat many symptoms of neuropathy. Your treatment will be individualized depending on your medical history as well as what symptoms you are experiencing.
Yes. We have had great success treating many patients with their neuropathy.
For your first consultation, our acupuncturist will do an extensive look at your medical history as well as examine you to determine your current state. Our acupuncturist may ask you about how, what, where, and when you feel pain, perspire, sleep, eat, drink, and exercise just to name a few. Additionally, our acupuncturist will also potentially feel your pulse, and observe your tongue as this gives clues as to your underlying condition causing your neuropathy pain.
Much of your first session will be about improving the flow of energy and blood.
By improving your blood flow, the nerve tissues of the affected part of the body can be replenished in order to repair the functions of the nerve, and alleviate the pain.
Our acupuncturist will determine the appropriate treatment action both during the consultation, and also seeing how your symptoms improve with each session. In addition to finding the proper acupuncture points for your neuropathy, our acupuncturist has other helpful treatments that may be utilized during your sessions. Some other options for treatment can include herbal formulas, electroacupuncture, and moxibustion.
Electroacupuncture involves the use of a small electric current between two acupuncture needles. Moxibustion is somewhat of a combination of acupuncture and Chinese herbs consisting of burning mugwort leaf to stimulate acupuncture points. Both of these options are extremely proficient in treating neuropathy pain as well as reducing the feeling of “pins and needles” that sometimes comes with neuropathy.
Yes. Acupuncture helps improve nerve conduction, and even the World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture as a useful treatment for neurological symptoms like neuropathy.
The number of sessions required depends on the severity of each person’s conditions prior to, and response after the first session. An average course of treatment is 2-3 sessions per week for a few weeks.
Yes we have had excellent success rates! We will work to provide an individualized treatment plan that improves blood flow, reduces inflammation, and releases any nerve malfunction.
