What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Damage to the peripheral nervous system interrupts communication between the brain and other parts of the body. This can impair muscle movement, prevent normal sensation in the hands and feet, and cause different feelings including numbness, tingling, cold and pain.
So all the strange feelings, you can experience from peripheral neuropathy aren’t just imagined. The nerves in your feet can become diseased or damaged as a result of other ailments such as diabetes.
Laser therapy is known to help rejuvenate nerves by increasing microcirculation. Enhancing blood flow to your feet allows fresh nutrients and oxygen to reach damaged nerves and start to repair them.
Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy
All kinds of conditions can result in Peripheral Neuropathy:
Lifestyle and habits:
Diet (you are what you eat! Probably heard of that one before!)
Lack of physical exercise
Smoking (major contributor!)
Exposure to toxic substances and chemicals
Genetics (This condition is often passed down from generation to generation).
