Neuropathy and nutrition is very important to learn. Just be careful of too much fruit sugars. This means a serving is 1/2 apple, banana, etc. Most non-starchy vegetables like greens and asparagus especially are great for most of us.
Two main conditions affect the ulnar nerve: Guyon’s canal syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome. Guyon’s canal syndrome is almost exactly the same in symptoms as carpal tunnel syndrome (pain and tingling in the palm and first three fingers), but involves a completely different nerve. Guyon’s canal syndrome is caused by pressure on your wrists, often by resting them at a desk or workstation, and is frequently experienced by cyclists due to pressure from the handlebars.
when damage to the nerve has already taken place, your NeuropathyDR® clinician may recommend more extensive measures. If your symptoms have continued for more than a few weeks with home treatments, see your ND clinician as soon as possible! Your ND clinician will be able to prescribe our specially designed CTS Protocol which is proving successful in centers around the country!
There’s no absolute cure for neuropathy, but NeuropathyDR® doctors and physical therapists are trained experts when it comes to the best ways to treat its different forms and keep you safe. If you have symptoms of neuropathy, or if you suffer from one of the conditions that contribute to it, don’t wait! The earlier we catch neuropathy, the safer and happier you will be. If you aren’t already in touch with a NeuropathyDR® clinician in your area, contact us and we will be happy to help you find one.
