If you or someone that you know is dealing with damage to the nerves in the lower extremities due to excessive alcohol consumption, you deserve the best possible treatment. With Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, you will be able to get the help that you need for proper alcoholic neuropathy treatment in Bothell.
While the precise cause of such neuropathy is not known, studies have been pointing to the fact that it seems as though the nerves end up being poisoned by the alcohol paired with poor nutrition. Usually, half of the population of heavy alcohol drinkers are known to develop this condition in their lower extremities. In more severe cases, the nerves that work to regulate the body on an internal level are involved as well.
Some of the symptoms of alcoholic neuropathy may include:
- painful sensations
- intolerance to heat
- muscle weakness or cramps
When you meet with us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic, we will be able to give you a full examination and also go over your medical history. From there, we will work on controlling your symptoms while helping you to find the best way to maximize your abilities and make it so that you can function on an independent level while preventing injury as much as possible.
We may suggest that you go through physical therapy or will offer help with splints or other orthopedic devices to help you maintain muscle function. If necessary, we will also be able to work with you on pain medication to make you as comfortable as possible throughout the therapy that is needed.
