What are the risk factors for neuropathy?

Your risk of neuropathy may increase because of:

  • Alcohol misuse
  • Poorly controlled diabetes
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Kidney, thyroid, or liver disorders
  • Infections
  • Toxin exposure
  • Family history of neuropathy
  • Repetitive motions
  • Some medications
  • Certain injuries
  • Chemotherapy

Ways to reduce your risk of developing neuropathy and its symptoms include maintaining a healthy weight, properly managing diabetes, eating nutritious foods, getting regular exercise, and avoiding smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.

How does my provider diagnose neuropathy?

To find out if you have neuropathy and develop a treatment plan, your chiropractic specialist discusses your symptoms and medical history with you. They check your vital signs, complete a physical exam (including a neurological exam), and may recommend diagnostic tests. 

Examples include nerve function testing, blood tests, imaging procedures, and specific nerve tests.

How does my chiropractor treat neuropathy pain?

Your chiropractor tailors each neuropathy treatment based on your personalized needs. They offer:

Low-level infrared light therapy

Noninvasive red LED light, infrared therapy, and laser are some of the best ways to treat neuropathy naturally. The procedure exposes your body to low levels of red light that enhance healing and cell regeneration in tiny nerve endings affected by neuropathy. 

Electrical stimulation therapy

Gentle electrical stimulation uses electrical energy to improve nerve function and movement, thereby reducing nerve pain. 


Nutrition supplementation available at Feel Amazing Institute reduces your risk of vitamin deficiencies and neuropathy pain. Your chiropractor also offers nutrition and exercise counseling tailored to your unique needs.

Precision medicine

Feel Amazing Institute offers precision medicine and other state-of-the-art therapies to alleviate neuropathy pain and reduce your risk of future problems. They use cellular and non-cellular allograft injections to enhance cell regeneration and your body’s healing ability.
