What Is Neuropathy and How Does it Affect Your Body?
Millions of Americans suffer from a form of Neuropathy each year, the word “Neuropathy” is a more clinical term that refers to nerve damage, and in cases where symptoms of nerve damage is being experienced in outer extremities of the body, it is called Peripheral neuropathy.

Numbness, tingling or prickling sensations can be felt in hands and feet, radiating into the arms and legs.
Other sensations reported by patients include, a sense of imbalance, feeling dizzy, a burning, stabbing or freezing pain.
Consultation with a Peripheral Neuropathy Doctor
If your physical exam indicates you may have nerve damage, we can proceed with further testing to establish the extent of the damage to develop an effective treatment plan for your condition.
