Numbness and Leg Pain Treatment (Meralgia Paresthetica) in Augusta GA

What is Meralgia Paresthetica?

It is a mononeuropathy (injury to one nerve) which causes numbness or pain in the outer thigh not caused by injury to the thigh, but by injury to a peripheral nerve that travels from the spinal cord to the thigh. This nerve is called the lateral femoral cuntaneous nerve. While vascular insufficency and lumbar radiculopathy are the diagnosis most often considered, in some cases the cause may be a less well-known neuropathy, Meralgia Paresthetica.

How Can Meralgia Paresthetica Be Treated?

 

Conservative manual therapy from a chiropractor should be tried before seeking drugs or surgery. As experienced chiropractors in Augusta GA, we can manually release (or stretch) the muscles and ligaments that may be entrapping the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. Soft tissue therapy such as Active Release Technique can provide much needed relief.  Additionally, a chiropractic assessment of the pelvis and ilium bone can detect any bony misalignments where adjustments may have an effect. Georgia Clinic of Chiropractic has had great success in treating patients with meralgia paresthetica, and patients pursuing conservative treatments first may be able to avoid taking prescription medication as well as riskier options such as surgery.   Call us today at (706) 814-5053 to find out if our treatments with an experienced chiropractor in Augusta GA may be beneficial for your condition.
