Neuropathy is a disorder that can come from many sources including medical disorders such as Diabetes, environmental sources such as long term toxic chemical exposure, side effects of taking certain medications and surgical procedures, particularly back surgeries.
This condition is very difficult to treat and often cannot be resolved. Today many drugs are prescribed for these conditions to help alleviate symptoms of the neuropathy.
Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they are not, but they always have the potential for giving the patient significant side effects.
My practice utilizes nutritional supplements and vitamins; as well as targeted and special medication compounds that are applied locally (no potential toxic pills used) to work at alleviating symptoms of neuropathy, often with satisfactory results.
