The integrative approach we use at Minnesota Integrative Medicine & Acupuncture increases the rate of blood flow and nutrients to the nerves that have been damaged. This then allows the nerves to return to a healthy functioning state. Even if you are at 85% nerve loss, we can help!
Nerve damage does not have to be permanent.
You don’t have to just live with it.
Peripheral Neuropathy is a common neurologic condition, which affects the peripheral nerves. The most common symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy are burning, tingling pain, which often feels like sharp electric sensation.
Walking, especially on hard or cold surfaces can be very painful, often described as walking on ground glass or stepping on pebbles.
When large nerve fibers are involved, patients are more likely to experience sensory loss and weakness in the feet and sometimes hands.
Small (microscopic) fiber involvement is typically limited to painful sensory symptoms. Often there are changes in the skin such as thinning and body hair loss, as well as muscle wasting in the feet and hands.
There are many common causes of peripheral neuropathy in the US. This includes diabetes, thyroid disorders, certain auto-immune conditions, vitamin B12 deficiency, alcohol abuse and exposure to toxins such as heavy metals or chemotherapy drugs. HIV, other infections and certain types of cancer can also cause this type of pain.

Your exam will include an exam known as THE PERIPHERAL NEUROPATHY TORONTO SCORING EXAM. This exam compares several sensations between that of the feet compared to a part of the body that has normal sensation. There are a thousand shades of numbness and it has been my experience that most people with nerve damage are worse off than they think because they have gradually and unperceptively lost their feeling. Having the peripheral neuropathy Toronto scoring test allows us to see how much damage has been done AND to see how much progress you are making during treatment.
In some cases, medication is the sole remedy for the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy, but the integrative medical team at Minnesota Integrative Medicine & Acupuncture offers a more holistic, comprehensive approach to treating both your symptoms and the underlying causes of your neuropathy.
