Symptoms of Nerve Damage

Symptoms of Nerve Damage
 

Our nerves are very sensitive. If these nerves are damaged, it can result to a condition known as Neuropathy. Metabolic issues, side effects of certain medications and traumatic experiences are just […]

Peripheral Neuropathy and Diet

  And What about the diet?     Peripheral neuropathy is a condition caused by damage to the peripheral nerves, more or less extensive, more or less symmetrical and by variable causes. Peripheral nerves are the ones in charge of transporting information back and forth from the central nervous system to any area of the body (things like closing the hand, or moving your feet, are examples). [...]

Causes and Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy

Causes and Treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy
 

Neuropathy is a painful disease that influences the nervous system and its capacity to sense movement to the zone that sustained the nerve harm. Neuropathy can cause painful and […]

Peripheral Neuropathy and Exercise

   What about Excercise and Peripheral Neuropathy?     Peripheral Neuropathy is damage to the peripheral nerves produced by diverse causes. As the peripheral nerves have the function of carrying information from the body to the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) and the same backwards (from the central nervous system to the periphery), it is easily understood that when the information highway (nerves) is damaged, the free transit of information back and forth ends up damaged.   To be more clear. Wrong or incomplete information arrives (i.e. [...]

What Is Peripheral Neuropathy

Peripheral Neuropathy definition: any disorder or condition that affects the peripheral nerves. Peripheral neuropathy is actually quite common. The prevalence is estimated to be about 3-8% of the general population and affects about 20 million people in the United States. Peripheral neuropathy can be clarified further with a better understanding of peripheral nerves. Peripheral nerves function as part of the human nervous system. [...]

TENS and PENS

TENS and PENS stand for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation and Percutaneous Electical Nerve Stimulation respectively. Both procedures can be helpful in alleviating some of the more painful symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, but have to be used repeatedly to sustain the benefits. During TENS procedures, a small battery operated device is worn by the patient and electrodes are typically placed on the surface of the skin, over the area where the pain is felt. [...]
