Diabetics with type 1 or type 2 diabetes can experience peripheral neuropathy from nerve damage caused by their disease. High sugar levels in the body may result in nerve damage, which is especially common in the legs and feet. It is estimated that up to 70% of diabetics experience some level of peripheral neuropathy caused by their disease. Our team at Hanowell Spine Clinic in Covington, GA, offers diabetic and peripheral neuropathy treatment to manage the symptoms of this nerve disorder.

Peripheral nerves are sensitive to irritation or damage from changes in the body that can occur with diabetes. High blood pressure or prolonged bouts of high glucose can impact the nerves in the limbs. Controlling blood pressure and glucose levels helps to prevent diabetic neuropathy, but spikes in levels are common and difficult to control. Once nerve damage occurs, it cannot be reversed. The best solution is managing the symptoms to reduce pain and improve mobility for the patient.

Symptoms of Diabetic Neuropathy

Nerve damage in the feet is common among diabetics. Due to the numbness that can accompany diabetic neuropathy in the feet, other injuries and infections can occur. Symptoms of diabetic or peripheral neuropathy can include:

  • Numbness in legs or feet
  • Localized burning sensation
  • Tingling
  • Chronic pain or cramps
  • Mobility issues – balance or coordination may be affected

While nerve damage from diabetic neuropathy cannot be cured, there are treatments that can manage symptoms. Medications, exercises, nerve blocks and other diabetic and peripheral neuropathy treatments are available. Contact our peripheral neuropathy experts at Hanowell Spine Clinic if you have symptoms of diabetic nerve damage to explore treatment options for relief. We will create a personalized treatment plan to manage your nerve pain and improve your mobility at our clinic in Covington, GA.

Patient Reviews

My knees were so bad I could hardly walk. After 3 injections no pain.

Dr. Michael Hanowell has relieved my sciatica pain. I was in a wheelchair and after the first epidural I was able to walk. After a recent car accident he put several injections in my back and neck which relieved the pain greatly. He and his staff are very considerate and do everything possible to work with you on relieving your pain.

Dr. Hanowell treated my sciatica pain & I went from being in a wheelchair and barely able to walk to being pain free. He is very professional, caring, and conscientious. He has given me several epidurals and trigger point injections for various issues related to age and injuries and his treatments were very effective. His staff is also very professional.
