Can chiropractors help with numbness and tingling in hands, legs and feet?

3
2
Yes. Dr. Mark Petro uses a specialized chiropractic technique called TRT (Torque Release Technique). It is a gentle chiropractic adjustment that involves NO cracking, NO popping, and NO twisting. He has used this technique to successfully help many patients with numbness and tingling in arms, hands, legs, or feet.

Would you share your success at treating neuropathy, numbness and tingling with TRT chiropractic techniques?

Dr. Mark Petro uses Torque Release Technique chiropractic technique as a highly effective and gentle treatment for all ages and patient demographics.  One patient in particular who suffered from numbness and tingling was a 42 year old male who had numbness and tingling in his arm and hand. This was a frequent issue and was sometimes accompanied by sharp pain that would shoot down into his arm and hand.  The patient came in for an evaluation and it was determined that he had several misalignments in the cervical spine as well as a herniated disc. The patient began care with Torque Release Technique as well as other supportive therapies.  In just two months, he stated that he felt better than he had in years. The patient has had no recurring bouts of numbness and tingling and is finishing up his care plan to strengthen his cervical spine to avoid future episodes in the future.

Another patient was a 56 year old who had low back pain and numbness plus tingling on the front of his thigh and leg. The patient stated this was exacerbated by prolonged standing and that it had been bothering him for years. The patient came in for evaluation and it was determined he had several misalignments in the lumbar spine as well as the pelvis and began care. After just a few months the patient has now been numbness and tingling free for 6 months. After finishing the recommended treatment and care plan the patient now is on a maintenance schedule to avoid future flare ups and has been doing great.

Another patient was a 70 year old male who had numbness in his foot and it resulted in him losing his balance.  The patient was very skeptical regarding care this way but decided to get evaluated and give it a try. After just 3 weeks, the patient came in for his visit and stated that he had increased sensation on the bottom of his foot for the first time in over a year,  He was able to feel his foot contact the ground helping with his balance while walking on flat ground as well as using stairs. The patient finished his care plan and has been beyond excited about what the return to normalcy has done for his daily activities and lifestyle.

What causes neuropathy?

3
2

Damage or aggravation to the nerve roots outside the spine causes neuropathy.  Damage or aggravation to the nerve roots where they exit the spine causes radiculopathy.

Why are we answering a question about neuropathy with the cause of radiculopathy? An accurate diagnosis as to where the damage or aggravation is located is vital to treating both issues. Many times radiculopathy is misdiagnosed as neuropathy. 

Dr. Mark Petro has used TRT chiropractic adjustments with great success on both neuropathy and radiculopathy patients.

What are the common signs and symptoms of neuropathy and radiculopathy that chiropractors look for during an examination?

3
2
Chiropractors will look for pain, numbness and tingling, or weakness in the arms, hands, legs, or feet when looking for neuropathy and radiculopathy signs. This can include burning, aching, “arm or leg giving out,” “pins and needles,” numbness, or loss of sensitivity.

Can chiropractic care completely cure neuropathy or are adjustments primarily focused on symptom management?

3
2
In the majority of cases Dr. Mark Petro has seen, Torque Release Technique chiropractic has greatly reduced or resolved the symptoms associated with neuropathy. To treat appropriately, the condition requires proper diagnosis of whether the symptoms are neuropathy or radiculopathy.

How does Torque Release Technique differ from traditional chiropractic techniques for treating neuropathy?

3
2
Torque Release Technique delivers specific and effective adjustments to the nerves exhibiting neuropathy symptoms. The goal is to stimulate the nerves to calm down so they stop communicating those symptoms and reduce the inflammation aggravation surrounding them.

Why does Dr. Mark Petro choose Torque Release Technique for neuropathy patients?

3
2
Dr. Petro chooses Torque Release Technique because of the gentle, effective, and specific adjustments the technique offers. What makes chiropractic successful at reducing nerve inflammation and aggravation is the speed and specificity of the adjustments not the force. Torque Release Technique offers a gentle efficient way of delivering fast and specific adjustments to accomplish that goal.

During his years in practice, has Dr. Mark Petro ever seen any patient completely cured of neuropathy?

3
2
Yes.  Frequently radiculopathy is misdiagnosed as neuropathy. The wrong area of the body is treated for the symptoms resulting in minimal to no relief.  Dr. Petro has had a treating patients with TRT when other chiropractic techniques have failed. In order to achieve complete symptom reduction, there needs to be accurate diagnosis and treatment of neuropathy. 

Does a patient’s improvements depend on length of time they have had neuropathy?

3
2
A patient’s improvement relies mostly on proper diagnosis. This ensures the correct area of the body is being treated resulting in the best chance to reduce the symptoms. The length of time in which the patient has symptoms is absolutely a factor in the length of recovery but it does not indicate the symptoms cannot be improved at all.

What can a patient expect during a Torque Release Technique chiropractic session for neuropathy?

3
2
During a Torque Release Technique session for neuropathy, a patient can expect a gentle effective adjustment to address nerve aggravation and inflammation. The patient may require additional therapies such as cervical or lumbar traction that can be very effective in reducing neuropathy. Also, electrical stimulation of the muscles and nerves in the problem area can often help.

How many chiropractic sessions of Torque Release Technique are typically needed to see improvements in neuropathy symptoms?

3
2
Every patient’s symptoms and time of healing are different. For the average patient, the first month of treatment which includes 8 sessions is a crucial time for progress. During this month, they should see a large decrease in neuropathy symptoms. Some patients may heal faster and some may heal slower but the average timeline is the first month of care for huge progress.

Are there any potential risks or side effects associated with Torque Release Technique for neuropathy treatment?

3
2
The most common side effects communicated are soreness after the first adjustment and treatment.

Can TRT chiropractic care help with the restoration of nerve function or regeneration in cases of neuropathy?

3
2
Torque Release Technique cannot help you regenerate nerves that have been destroyed. Torque Release Technique can help restore function to nerves that are experiencing pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness. As the nerve is restored to normal function, it can regain strength and decrease painful annoying symptoms associated with neuropathy.

Can Torque Release Technique be used alongside other conventional medical treatments for neuropathy?

3
2
Yes.  There are no contraindications to Torque Release Technique being used alongside other conventional medical treatments.

Can TRT chiropractic care help with specific types of neuropathy, such as diabetic neuropathy or peripheral neuropathy?

3
2
Torque Release Technique can help with certain aspects of diabetic neuropathy or other peripheral neuropathies but those are case specific, and results vary patient to patient.

Can TRT chiropractic care provide pain management for neuropathy?

3
2
Torque Release Technique chiropractic care can provide pain management for neuropathy patients by decreasing the inflammation and aggravation around the nerves affected and restoring their normal function.

I saw Dr. Petro concerning debilitating lower back pain that was causing numbness and tingling in my legs and feet. I felt relief beginning after the first appointment! Now, after only 5 sessions, I feel no pain, can sleep through the night, and am able to do my job comfortably. Highly recommend his modern, quick, and nonintrusive method!

My experience with Modern Chiropractic has been wonderful. I have always left previous adjustments with other doctors in worse pain. My wife told me about a new practice that was getting fantastic reviews ,so I agreed to give them a try. I have neuropathy, stenosis and am recovering from triple bypass surgery. Dr.Mark has been a life saver for me ! I am back to my old self and plan to continue with his care. Do not give in to your issues, get to Modern Chiropractic!!! The staff is warm-hearted and very supportive.

Dr. Mark Petro is knowledgeable and so good at what he does! He listens carefully and explains things in a way that anyone can understand. He has helped me combat acute neck pain, radiculopathy, and neuropathy successfully. Dr Petro is available, approachable, kind, and understanding. His chiropractic approach is gentle and effective in a relaxed and friendly environment. I have so much gratitude for the time and effort he has spent on my case. I 100% recommend that you try his approach if you are experiencing pain. He can help!!
