Causes and Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the nerves in the body. There are several different types of neuropathy, with the most common being peripheral. The peripheral nervous system connects the nerves in the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. These nerves are what send signals regarding physical sensations to the brain. If these nerves malfunction or are damaged, peripheral neuropathy occurs.

The areas of the body that are the most affected are the hands, arms, legs, and feet. Symptoms of peripheral neuropathy depend on which nerves are affected.

Some symptoms of peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Burning sensation
  • Sharp shooting pain
  • Reflex issues
  • Sensitivity to touch
  • Muscle weakness
  • Paralysis
  • Problems with glands and / or organs

Some main causes for developing peripheral neuropathy include:

  • Diabetes
  • Infection
  • Injury


To fully assess peripheral neuropathy, it is essential to speak to a doctor. Because the nerves are involved, a proper assessment will determine if the nerve is pinched or permanent damage is causing the pain or loss of sensation. Regenerative treatments are great treatment options if you seek an alternative to surgery or medications. An effective treatment our doctor’s use is Regenerative Medicine using umbilical allografts.

Regenerative Medicine using Umbilical Allografts

Umbilical Allografts are administered as an injection and are nonsurgical. Umbilical allografts are taken from a substance called Wharton’s Jelly. Wharton’s Jelly is collected from the umbilical cord of newborns at the time of birth. Donating mothers are carefully screened, and the collection of this tissue causes no harm to the mother or child. Umbilical allografts contain essential healing properties such as growth factors, cytokines, and proteins. These aid in the healing of tissues.
