Neuropathy or Neuropathic Pain is a complex, chronic pain state also known as Nerve Pain. This type of chronic pain can occur when the nerve fibers in the central nervous system become injured, damaged, or dysfunctional. These damaged nerve fibers send incorrect signals to other pain centers. The impact of a nerve fiber injury includes a change in nerve function both at the site of injury and areas around the injury. If you or someone you care about has nerve pain, you know that it can erode quality of life.
Symptoms of Neuropathy Include:
- Burning Sensations
- Stabbing pains
- Tingling sensation in feet or hands
- Extreme sensitivity to touch
- Muscle weakness or paralysis
Currently there is no proven treatment to prevent or cure neuropathic pain. Instead, the primary goals of treatment is to reduce the pain as much as possible, balance the negative side effects of the treatment, and help patients manage any unresolved pain. We have found that the best outcomes come from:
- Osteopathic Manipulation
- Chiropractic Manipulation
- Manual Therapy
- Nerve Blocks
- Medication Management
- Trigger Point Injections
