Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in League City, TX

Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition that affects millions of people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

Peripheral nerves originate in the spinal cord and flow out along lines in the body known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes damaged, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then radiate out to specific areas of the body.

This type of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

People develop peripheral neuropathy for many different reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also can be hereditary, although this is not as common.

And in some instances, the original cause of peripheral neuropathy is never determined. This is called idiopathic neuropathy and as many as a third of all people in League City, TX, with peripheral neuropathy fall into this category.

Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy depends on the type and severity of the condition. Some people respond to anti-seizure medications, while others benefit from antidepressants.

Capsaicin cream also is sometimes used to provide modest improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.

Relieving the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy

Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, eradicating the suffering is generally top treatment priority.

I've been here several times for chiropractic treatment and massage. Both services are great. Dr. Vazquez taylors treatment specifically to your needs. Adjustments are never painful but are always effective. He utilizes additional therapies to increase healing. The massages are best I've had. If you're looking for a massage that provides actual relief, this is it. They are familiar with muscle anatomy and understand how to apply massage pressure to release pain and tightness. Everyone here from the techs who deliver the additional therapies, massage techs, the front desk, the Dr. himself are all a great team. From the moment you are greeted at the front door through the time of treatment, everyone is polite and professional. The facility itself is clean and very nice. Whether your pain is from an injury or just stress of life, I recommend giving them a try!

When I first moved to Texas I didn’t think I would find a chiropractor with the same level of knowledge as the one that I had in my home State. When I needed a chiropractor I found his place driving by and I decided to stop in. The first few visits, I didn’t let him touch my neck. I was scared because my previous doctor had finally fixed my neck after years of pain management. But as Dr Vazquez slowly gained my confidence I was able to let him treat me with no restrictions. Then I hurt my lower back and needed to go a specialist do the MRI and take oral cortisone, pain medication, muscle relaxant and finally a shot of cortisone in my spine. Dr. Vazquez, my chiropractor, started a stretch table treatment, laser and shockwave - that saved me. I still carry my cortisone pills, just in case, but I am living my life normally, of course a little bit more aware of my condition but no more Aleve, cortisone shots etc.. I can say that Dr Vasquez brought back my freedom to go anywhere I want. I do recommend him to all those out there who are in pain with a pinched nerve, sciatica, back pain etc.

I'm plagued by fibromyalga and polyarthritis. I've sought treatment for years to no avail. I'm two weeks into treatment now. This place is the only place that has treated me and given some relief from the symptoms. Hats off the the Dr and therapist! Many thanks. Worth the drive! Highly recommend!

Very professional and helpful. When I felt unheard by other physicians Dr Vasquez eased my concerns by explaining and educating me about the body’s anatomy. And that I wasn’t going crazy nor making things up. Shoot! I’m in pain! I was hopeless and giving up. Until I went to his office. He and his team were so helpful. It started at the entrance. The lady at the desk was kind and welcoming. I have to trust the process if I want to get back to my lifestyle of exercising, running, walking, working, etc. And I’m grateful to have a husband, a friend and concerned life partner who did the steps I couldn’t to find Dr. V! I appreciate Dr Vasquez’s honesty as well as his kind words. The bedside manner Dr. Vasquez and his team have are phenomenal! You ladies rock! Let’s keep thriving towards getting me back on both feet, balanced and feeling whole again!!!! Jeremiah 29:11

Keeps my back in shape to avoid missing work and the fun stuff in life. Update; I was a skeptic of acupuncture but it does help. Since I've tried it I have noticed an improvement in my overall health and well being.
