Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are ancient healing techniques that can help relieve the symptoms of neuropathy, including pain, numbness, tingling, and loss of balance and mobility. These therapies work by stimulating specific points on the body with fine needles or by using herbal formulas to balance the body’s energy and promote healing.
At What’s Good, we specialize in helping patients with neuropathy, including those with diabetic neuropathy and chemotherapy-induced neuropathy. Our goal is to improve our patients’ quality of life by reducing their symptoms and helping them regain sensation, balance, and mobility.
Research has shown that acupuncture can be effective in relieving neuropathic pain. In a meta-analysis of 17 randomized controlled trials involving over 1,100 patients, researchers found that acupuncture was more effective than sham acupuncture or conventional treatments in reducing neuropathic pain (source:here).
Chinese herbal medicine can also be helpful in treating neuropathy. In a study of 36 patients with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, those who received a combination of acupuncture and herbal medicine had a significant improvement in nerve conduction velocity, a measure of nerve function, compared to those who received conventional treatment alone (source:here).
At What’s Good, our experienced practitioners will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that may include acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and other complementary therapies to address your specific symptoms and needs. We will also provide guidance on lifestyle changes, such as exercise and diet modifications, that can help improve your neuropathy symptoms.
