Neuropathic Pain Treatment
When nerves are damaged or dysfunctional, the result can be neuropathic pain. Injury, disease, illness and other factors can impact nerves, causing dysfunction and pain. Neuropathic pain and neuralgia both can be caused by irritated or damaged nerves. Our pain specialists at Caliber Pain™ offer advanced neuropathic pain treatment at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.
Causes and Symptoms of Neuropathic Pain
Every part of the body is impacted by nerves for sensation and function. Neuropathic pain is caused by disruption in the normal nerve function. Infection, physical damage, radiation, inflammation, impingement and many other factors can impact the way a nerve signals the brain. Diabetes, shingles, amputation, trauma and nervous system disorders are common of the related issues that can cause neuropathic pain. Neuropathic pain occurs when nerves signal distress or pain to the brain when there is not a cause or source of pain present. Symptoms include:
- Shooting, burning or intense pain without stimulus (spontaneous pain)
- Tingling or needling sensation
- Pain caused by non-painful stimuli, such as heat or cold
- Abnormal sensation in affected area
Neuropathic pain can occur almost anywhere, from neuropathic foot pain linked to diabetes to shooting torso pain caused by shingle nerve damage. Treating any underlying condition that is irritating nerves is the first step in reducing neuropathic pain. When nerve damage has occurred, controlling, blocking or interrupting pain signals can be effective treatment options.
