Neuropathy Treatment from Orthopedic Doctor
Neuropathy can be one of the scariest symptoms of diabetes, injuries, and carpal tunnel, among other issues. If you're experiencing numbness, tingling, or any changes in sensation and feeling, getting help from an orthopedic doctor as soon as possible is vital. At Boston Orthopaedic P.C., our experts in Fall River, Springfield, and New Bedford, MA, can help you get the care you need so you can recover from neuropathy. First, however, before you visit us, it's important to understand what neuropathy is and how it can affect your body.
What Is Neuropathy?
Neuropathy occurs when there is damage to the peripheral nervous system caused by diabetes, trauma, pinched nerves, or even infections in the body. It can cause numbness or tingling in the feet, legs, hands, arms, and other extremities. Muscle weakness and pain can also arise from neuropathy. Additionally, it is possible to lose balance and coordination due to nerve damage, although this is one of the more advanced complications of neuropathy. Getting help when you start experiencing these symptoms is vital to prevent complications. Our orthopedic doctor will conduct a thorough exam to determine the root cause of your neuropathy and get you started on the right treatment plan.
