What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Neuropathy means nerve damage. There are many kinds of neuropathy that can stem from a variety of different causes.
Peripheral neuropathy is a common condition that affects the nerves in the peripheral nervous system, leading to symptoms such as pain, tingling, numbness, and weakness in the extremities. Diabetes, chemotherapy, and autoimmune disorders can all potentially cause Peripheral Neuropathy.
Research on Acupuncture for Peripheral Neuropathy
Several studies have investigated the effectiveness of acupuncture as a treatment for peripheral neuropathy.

A systematic review and meta-analysis of 22 randomized controlled trials published in 2017 found that acupuncture significantly improves the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy. The study found that acupuncture can reduce pain and improve sensory function in patients with peripheral neuropathy.
A study published in the Journal of Phytomedicine found that acupuncture can be an effective treatment for chemotherapy induced Peripheral Neuropathy. The study involved 60 participants with diabetic peripheral neuropathy, who were randomly assigned to either an acupuncture group or a waiting list control group. The researchers found that the acupuncture group had significant improvements in nerve conduction velocity, sensory nerve function, and overall quality of life compared to the control group.
In another study published in the Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture was found to relieve pain associated with diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy. The study included 65 participants with peripheral neuropathy, who were randomly assigned to an acupuncture group or a control group. The researchers found that the acupuncture group had significant reductions in both subjective sensation of pain and objective nervous system examination compared to the control group.
How Acupuncture Works for Peripheral Neuropathy
Acupuncture can effectively treat diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy by improving peripheral nerve conduction velocity, increasing plasma nitric oxide content, and promoting local blood circulation. This helps to reduce inflammation, promote healing, and restore nerve function.
Acupuncture may also help to reduce insulin resistance and improve Type II Diabetes, which can be a major cause of Peripheral Neuropathy.
