Peripheral neuropathy is a condition resulting from damage to the peripheral nervous system, the complex network of central nerves that transmit information from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. The damage caused to the peripheral nervous system as a result of neuropathy interrupts the connection between the brain and the nerves of the rest of the body.

Every peripheral nerve provides a specialized function in every specific portion of the body, which can cause a wide variety of symptoms when the nerves are damaged.

People afflicted by neuropathy on the peripheral nerves may suffer from temporary numbness, tingling or prickling sensations (paresthesia), and sensitivity to touch or muscle weakness. Occasionally, severe symptoms of the condition may occur, such as burning pain that aggravates at night, muscle atrophy, paralysis, and organ or gland dysfunction. Others affected by this type of neuropathy may have complications while digesting food, maintaining safe levels of blood pressure, sweating, or experiencing normal sexual function. In severe cases, breathing may become difficult.

Peripheral neuropathy is a condition that may be either acquired or inherited.

Acquired causes for the condition include trauma or physical injury directly to a nerve, pressure on the nerve from a tumor or a swollen blood vessel, nutritional deficiencies, autoimmune responses, and alcoholism or toxins. Other underlying conditions like multiple sclerosis and diabetes can also cause this type of neuropathy, as a matter or fact, diabetes is the leading cause of peripheral neuropathy in the U.S. In most cases though, causes for the development of this condition remain unknown.

Peripheral neuropathy is an impairing condition but it is reversible. The symptoms for the condition can be relieved by foremost treating any possible underlying condition that could have caused the neuropathy. Lifestyle changes and healthy habits can promote nerve regeneration. Treatments for the condition include exercise routines recommended by a physical therapist or specialist, and diet and nutritional strategies to treat deficiencies and improve wellness.

Pain in the Quadratus Lumborum Muscle

A majority of the population have at some point experienced low back pain in their lifetimes. Although low back pain is recognized to result from numerous conditions or injuries on the lumbar spine, muscle strains such as a quadratus lumborum muscle strain, are believed to be a leading cause for the recognizable symptoms of pain and discomfort.
The quadratus lumborum muscle is a sizable muscle in the shape of a triangle, located deep on each respective side of the lower back. The role of the wide muscular tissue is to grant mobility to the lumbar spine in sequence for the torso to move laterally from side to side as well as extend and stabilize the lower spine to improve posture. When this muscle is strained or pulled, the symptoms can restrict movement on the lower back and since the muscular tissue is so extensive, recovery from this type of injury usually requires more time and patience to fully heal.

Achilles Tendon Injury

Achilles tendonitis is a medical term used to describe a condition resulting in irritation of the large tendon, the Achilles tendon. Found in the back of the ankle, this condition is recognized as a common cause for injury among athletes. Excessive use of the Achilles tendon results in inflammation together with swelling and pain.
The development of Achilles tendonitis can be associated with two important factors, most frequently among athletes, which are, lack of flexibility and over-pronation. With age, the tendons will begin to lose flexibility, just the same as other tissues in the body. This change causes the tendons to become more rigid and more vulnerable to injury. For some people, the ankle may roll too far downward and inward with each step they take. This is called over-pronation, which places more stress on the tendons and ligaments of the foot, contributing to injury if not corrected.
Achilles tendonitis may also develop from other factors. An increase in an athlete’s …

5 Common Causes for Shoulder Pain

The shoulders are the most mobile joints in the human body. Because the ball of the humerus is designed to be larger than the shoulder socket that holds it, the shoulders need to be supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments to secure them in a stable or natural position. Since the shoulder can be unstable, it is often a site for many common complications. Below are 5 common causes of shoulder pain and their associated symptoms.
Rotator Cuff Tear
Rotator cuff tears within the shoulder are a very common type of shoulder injury. The rotator cuff consists of a set of four muscles: the supraspinatus, the infraspinatus, the subscapularis, and the teres minor. All of these muscles are attached to the bones of the shoulders by tendons, which purspose is to support, stabilize, and grant the arm movement to move up, down and rotate. The rotator cuff ensures that the arm remains in the shoulder socket. Damage or injury from an accident or gradual wear and tear can result in inflammation to t…
