Neuropathy

Important Information

Nerve pain is caused by pressure on nerves or the spinal cord, or by damage to nerves. It is also called neuropathic pain. People often describe nerve pain as burning, shooting, tingling, or as a feeling of something crawling under their skin. It can sometimes be more difficult to treat than other types of pain.

    Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy is a form of nerve damage in the hands and/or feet. It is one of the most common complications that can occur if you have diabetes. High blood sugar can injure nerve fibers throughout your body, but diabetic neuropathy most often damages nerves in your legs and feet.

    Depending on the affected nerves, symptoms can range from pain and numbness in the extremities to problems with the digestive system, urinary tract, blood vessels and heart. For some people, these symptoms are mild. For others, diabetic neuropathy can be painful, disabling and even fatal.

    With neuropathy, reflexology has a great option of gently activating the damaged nerve fibers to send and receive correct nervous signals. Through pressure techniques, a stable rhythmic stimulus of information is sent and received through the central nervous system.
