Peripheral Neuropathy in Jupiter, FL
What Is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral Neuropathy refers to the conditions that result when nerves that connect to the brain and spinal cord from the rest of the body are damaged or diseased.
These nerves of the peripheral nervous system have 3 main parts so to speak, they are:
- Cell body - Also known as the Soma-It is the largest part of the cell and is the control center of that nerve. It is where the genetic material (DNA) is located.
- Dendrites - These are slender branch like extensions of a nerve cell that conducts impulses from adjacent cells inward toward the Cell Body.
- Axon - This is the thick branch of the nerve cell, it is connected to the Cell Body and carries the impulses or electrical signals away from the body to other structures for communication. This is the part of the nerve cell most often damaged in Peripheral Neuropathy.
“Peripheral neuropathy describes damage to the peripheral nervous system, the vast communications network that transmits information from the brain and spinal cord (the central nervous system) to every other part of the body. Peripheral nerves also send sensory information back to the brain and spinal cord, such as a message that the feet are cold or a finger is burned. Damage to the peripheral nervous system interferes with these vital connections. Like static on a telephone line, peripheral neuropathy distorts and sometimes interrupts messages between the brain and the rest of the body.
What Are Some Of The Symptoms Of Peripheral Neuropathy?
Symptoms usually begin long before the person afflicted ever realizes that they have a problem.
Most commonly, peripheral neuropathy starts in the longest nerves, the ones that reach to your toes. Symptoms vary, depending on which types of nerves are affected.
However, as time passes and the damage accumulates the symptoms become much more pronounced and intense.
Do you have any of the following symptoms in your feet and/or hands:
- Pain like electric shocks
- Shooting pain
- Extreme sensitivity with touch
- Lack of balance
- Sensitivity to hot and/or cold
Can my nerves heal?
The answer is YES!! Scientific research tells us that nerves can and do heal. We have to provide the environment for healing as well as reduce/stop the initial cause. This in turn allows the nerves to heal themselves
Our treatment is customized to individual patients and provides the following:
- Improves the blood flow to the nerves
- Improves the internal environment for the healing process of the nerves to occur
- Retrains the nerves to function like they should as they heal
- Reduces and relieves pain
My name is Keith L Volstad DC, CCSP, DABCI, DACBN
My goal is to provide help to those patients who have tried "everything" for their peripheral neuropathy and chronic nerve pain with no success. The protocol is highly successful and has no side effects. It's exciting when I see patients regain their quality of life and independence.
I have been in private practice 39 years and I am board certified in Chiropractic Internal Medicine and Clinical Nutrition.
Here's what some of our many patients had to say about our program:
1. My name is Paul S. I would highly recommend Dr. Volstad's Neuropathy treatment program. The program has lowered my pain level from a 9/10 to 0!
Listen to Paul's testimony: click here.
2. Went to Volstad Integrated Wellness for my neuropathy and everything was perfect because I now don't have burning in my feet and I give it a 5-star rating.
