When the nerves outside the brain and spinal cord (peripheral nerves) are damaged peripheral neuropathy can result. This condition can create weakness, numbness and pain throughout the body, most often in the hands and feet. Peripheral neuropathy can impact daily life in frustrating ways, and damage to these nerves can worsen if not treated promptly. PEMF therapy can help reduce the symptoms of neuropathy in a safe, convenient, cost-effective way.
Your peripheral nervous system sends messages in the form of sensory input to your central nervous system, as well as sending information from your brain and central nervous system (spinal cord) to the rest of your body. When these nerves are damaged, pain signals are sent out to alert you that something isn’t right.
Peripheral neuropathy isn’t caused by one single condition. Diabetes is one of the most common causes of neuropathy, but other underlying issues can include traumatic injury, autoimmune disease, genetic disorders, infections, tumors, bone marrow disorders, nutrient deficiencies, and toxin exposure.
