What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Do you experience tingling, numbness, or pain in the hands or feet? You may have Peripheral Neuropathy.

Neuropathy occurs in the feet or hands due to nerve damage. Over time, the nerves lose blood supply due to constriction which causes them to degenerate. They start sending abnormal signals to the brain as nerve damage progresses.

People with Peripheral Neuropathy describe the pain as stabbing, burning, or tingling. Some people experience numbness as the nerve damage progresses. Once sensation is lost in the feet, balance, problems start to occur and you may be at risk of falling. If it's in your hands, you may experience weakened grip and begin to drop things


Peripheral neuropathy can arise from a multitude of factors, including:

  • Diabetes

  • Chemotherapy

  • Trauma

  • Autoimmune Diseases

  • Vitamin Deficiencies

  • Toxins and Medications


How Can Acupuncture Help?

Acupuncture, an ancient Chinese healing technique, involves the insertion of thin needles into specific points on the body to stimulate energy flow and promote healing. Several studies have shown the efficacy by which acupuncture works to alleviate peripheral neuropathy, including: 

  • Pain Relief

  • Improvement in Nerve Function

  • Stress Reduction

  • Enhanced Blood Circulation
