Is Peripheral Neuropathy Curable?
One of the most frequent questions we get asked is a simple "Is Peripheral Neuropathy Curable?". Many people suspect that they are experiencing the early signs of peripheral neuropathy (PN) and want to know what is available for Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment, and to what level will it work.
Obviously, everybody's situation, level of progression and body chemistry is different, so there is no "one size fits all" answer to this question. That being said, there are some standards and processes that apply, and can in almost all cases help. That help CAN be more than just a reduction in symptoms. It CAN be as an effective as the regeneration and strengthening of the nerves damaged by the Peripheral Neuropathy.
So if regeneration of nerves damaged by PN is your definition of a cure, then yes it can be cured if caught early enough and treated properly. If the damage has been left untreated for a long time then a full cure is much more difficult, BUT is Peripheral Neuropathy reversible as it pertains to symptoms and can previously damaged nerves be regenerated to some extent, however long the disease has been in the body? Most definitely. In it's simplest terms, however long the disease has been in the body, relief from Peripheral Neuropathy symptoms is available.
Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Options
1. Peripheral Neuropathy Symptom Management
This is not a cure, but it does provide temporary relief from the painful symptoms. Symptom management can range from topical creams to medicated ointments to drug therapy. It is important to know that different drugs work differently, so sometimes a prescription might not be effective and a different drug will need to be prescribed.
2. Physical Therapy
This is especially effective for nociceptive pain and chronic back or neck pain. A physiotherapist will be able to diagnose the cause of pain and use a different treatment option to address the cause of pain.
Light physical activity such as yoga, tai chi and walking can all help to improve neuropathy symptoms while improving overall health.
3. Nutrition Therapy
Using nutrition therapy is important for managing all types of pain. For any type of nerve damage, it is important to the body repair nerve damage – and Frontline Neuropathy is backed by extensive clinical research that optimizes nerve health and decreases painful symptoms. It is also important to consider that because high blood sugar is the most common cause of neuropathy, it is possible keep blood sugar normal so that nerves are not damaged.
To answer the initial question "Is Peripheral Neuropathy Curable?"; if diagnosed early on it can be. But even later on the debilitating symptoms and pain can be mitigated and nerve-related pain can drastically be reduced to allow a better quality of life.
