Hello everyone. Hi, I’m Dr. Dennis Barley from Barley Wellness here in Fairhaven, Massachusetts and today we’re going to talk about neuropathy, more specifically peripheral neuropathy.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Talking about neuropathy, over 20 million people in the United States suffer from neuropathy. 60% of people with diabetes have neuropathy. So what is neuropathy? It’s damage to the nerves, mainly due to something called an anoxia when there’s a lack of oxygen due to decreased blood flow, and these nerves are affected adversely some of the symptoms you may be experiencing or numbness, tingling, you know in your feet in your hands. Eventually, that runs up into the legs and down the arms up into the arms, sensitivity to touch to temperature, jabbing, throbbing, burning, pain and lack of muscle strength can also have some some bowel bladder issues, and also some sexual dysfunction issues such as erectile dysfunction. Medically neuropathy is treated with medications surgeries or injections. And they it that deals with the symptoms of neuropathy. We are concerned with the symptoms or neuropathy, but we’d like to get to this to the to the to the cause of the neuropathy. In other words, we’d like to go up on the roof and fix the roof instead of placing a bucket underneath a leak leak in that roof.

We do that by doing a comprehensive examination, a neuro musculoskeletal examination also at any other further testing, so that we can get to the root cause of neuropathy and help you get over your neuropathic condition.
