Nerve Pain Treatments

A problem within the peripheral nervous system is indicated by neuropathy, also called peripheral neuropathy. The network of nerves outside of your brain and spinal cord is your peripheral nervous system. Your central nervous system is made up of the brain and the spinal cord.

Neuropathy occurs when there is disruption or loss of nerve cells, called neurons. This disrupts the manner in which the neurons connect with each other and the brain. Neuropathy can affect one nerve (mononeuropathy) or type of nerve, a limited-area nerve combination (multifocal neuropathy), or multiple peripheral nerves throughout the body (polyneuropathy).

Common Nerve Pain Causes

From mild, sporadic pain to severe, ongoing pain that interferes with daily tasks, nerve pain may be a crippling and unpleasant experience.  There are many potential causes of nerve pain, and finding the root cause is essential for effective treatment.

Some common causes include:

  • Injury or trauma: Nerve pain can result from physical injuries or trauma, such as a car accident or sports injury.
  • Inflammation: Inflammation can cause swelling and irritation of the nerves, leading to pain.
  • Infection: Certain infections, such as shingles, can cause nerve pain.
    Compression: Nerves can become compressed or pinched, resulting in pain. This can be caused by conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome or spinal stenosis.
  • Chronic health conditions: Certain chronic health conditions, such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and fibromyalgia, can cause nerve pain.

At Atlas Pain Management, our team of experienced healthcare professionals is dedicated to helping you find the cause of your nerve pain and providing the most effective treatment options.

Common Nerve Pain Symptoms

It is important to be aware of the symptoms of nerve pain so that you can seek appropriate treatment as soon as possible.

Some common symptoms of nerve pain include:

  • Sharp, shooting, or stabbing pain: Nerve pain can feel like a sharp, shooting sensation that may radiate from the site of the damaged nerve.
  • Burning or tingling sensations: Some people with nerve pain may experience a burning sensation in the affected area.
  • Numbness or weakness: Nerve damage can cause numbness or weakness in the affected area, making it difficult to move or use the affected limb or muscle.
  • Sensitivity to touch: People with nerve pain may find that they are more sensitive to touch or pressure in the affected area.

A wide range of conditions can also cause nerve pain, and each condition may have unique symptoms.

Some conditions that can cause nerve pain include:

  • Diabetes: People with diabetes may experience nerve pain due to nerve damage caused by high blood sugar levels.  Symptoms may include numbness or tingling in the hands, feet, or legs.
  • Multiple sclerosis: Multiple sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disease that can cause nerve pain and other neurological symptoms.  Symptoms may include muscle weakness, difficulty walking, and vision problems.
  • Shingles: Shingles is a viral infection that causes a painful rash on the skin. It can also cause nerve pain that may persist long after the rash has resolved.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in which the median nerve in the wrist becomes compressed, causing pain, numbness, and tingling in hand and fingers.

Common Treatments For Nerve Pain

Nerve pain can be a challenging and complex condition to treat. It is essential to correctly diagnose the cause of the pain in order to determine the most effective treatment options.

Our clinic offers a range of treatment methods to help manage nerve pain, including:

  • Medication: We may prescribe medications to help manage nerve pain, including over-the-counter pain relievers, such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen, or prescription medications, such as antidepressants and anticonvulsants.
  • Physical therapy: Physical therapy can help improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion, which can help reduce nerve pain.
  • Interventional procedures: In some cases, interventional procedures, such as nerve blocks or spinal cord stimulators, may be used to help manage nerve pain.
  • Lifestyle changes: Changing your diet, exercise routine, and daily activities can also help reduce nerve pain.

We will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals. If you are struggling with nerve pain, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

At-Home Treatment Tips For Your Nerve Pain

  • Practice good posture: Maintaining good posture can help reduce strain on your nerves and help alleviate pain.
  • Stay active: Regular physical activity can help improve circulation and reduce nerve pain.
  • Use heat and cold therapy: Applying heat or cold to the affected area can help reduce pain and swelling.
  • Try relaxation techniques: Techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, or yoga can help reduce stress and tension, which can help manage nerve pain.
  • Manage your stress: Chronic stress can worsen nerve pain, so it is important to find ways to manage stress and reduce its impact on your body.

Chronic Pain
Chronic pain is a common problem that can cause significant physical and emotional distress. When you have chronic pain, you may experience pain every day, even after the original injury or illness has healed. This can be difficult to cope with, both physically and emotionally. Approximately 25% of people with chronic pain will develop chronic pain syndrome (CPS), which is characterized by symptoms beyond pain, like depression and anxiety. This can make it difficult to live your life normally.

Neck Pain
The neck (or cervical spine) is a coordinated network of nerves, bones, joints, and muscles. It has the important job of providing protection and mobility to the brain, but often it can become painful. There are a number of conditions that cause pain in the neck. Inflammation along nerve pathways in the spine can be responsible for shoulder, head, arm, and/or hand pain. Additionally, inflammation of the spinal cord may cause pain in the legs and other areas of the body. In a few days or weeks, neck pain usually goes away, but pain that lasts for months may signify an underlying medical cause that needs to be addressed. In such cases, early intervention may be necessary for the best results.
