Your peripheral nervous system carries instructions from your brain to your limbs, spinal cord, joints, and muscles. It also controls bodily functions you do without thinking like digestion. Disturbances to your peripheral nervous system, which is made up of the nerves that affect the functions of many different parts of your body, create the condition known as peripheral neuropathy.
There are a number of different underlying conditions that can lead to nerve damage and bring on peripheral neuropathy symptoms, including but not limited to:
Genetics is a common risk factor. If you have a family history of peripheral neuropathy, you may be more susceptible.
Since all of the nerves in your peripheral nervous system work differently, symptoms vary based on the type of nerve or nerves affected. Your sensory nerves send and receive information to parts of your body and affect how you experience sensations like temperature, touch, and pain. Motor nerves affect your muscles and their motion. Autonomic nerves dictate blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, and functioning of your bladder.
Here are some common symptoms:
Even though there is no cure, Dr. Allam offers a variety of primary and adjunctive therapy options that help with pain relief, promote improved nerve function, and encourage lifestyle choices that lead to a happier, healthier life.

Dr. Allam offers wide-ranging adjustments based on different techniques, characterized by varying amounts of pressure application and style. Therapeutic stretching, exercise, and massage treatment can also help ease your pain. Dr. Allam decides which technique is best for you and your condition.
