Brachioradial Pruritus Treatment in San Diego
Not a lot known about Brachioradial Pruritus (BRP). It is typically defined as an intense itching, usually in the upper arm, but has been found below the elbow as well. The itch can be so bad it will even keep a person up at night and it does not respond to allergy or skin condition treatments. Oftentimes medical doctors will eventually resort to referring the sufferer to a psychologist because so little is known about BRP, they assume it must be all in their head.
If you or someone you know has the symptoms of BRP, we might be able to help. There is evidence that suggests BRP is a direct result of interference in the cervical nerves and that is exactly what we treat here.
What We Do
Ours is a structural approach. We focus our exam on the entire body, especially the spine and, more specifically the brainstem area. That is because an imbalance here CAN produce the above named symptoms so commonly associated with Brachioradial Pruritus. Our spinal adjustments (using the NUCCA technique) are super safe, specific and gentle; they’re designed to free up nerve pressure and stimulate your own body’s healing response.
Dr. Pietrek has helped several people suffering with BRP not only in Rancho Bernardo, but all over the San Diego area. Visit our contact page to set up a consultation today. Let’s see if we can help you too!
