That I ended up going to a chiropractor in Sacramento in order to help cure a particularly vicious case of neuropathy came as a huge surprise to me. Neuropathy, if you don’t know, is a pernicious condition in which the nerves in your arms and legs either go numb or tingle to the point of pain. It’s often linked to such conditions as chronic alcoholism or diabetes, but it can also be caused by a deficiency in B vitamins. The result, however, is often the same: severe pain and discomfort. When I was felled by neuropathy I pursued a solution through traditional medicine.
My doctors took various tests that came back negative for diabetes and I know for a fact that I’m not an alcoholic, so we were stumped. They strongly implied that this condition was something I would just have to live with and that nothing would likely improve it. I wasn’t willing to accept this diagnosis and started doing research online.
