Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment
The peripheral nerves extend from the spinal cord to all the organs and extremities in the body. Peripheral neuropathy refers to a wide variety of disorders with the peripheral nervous system. Although peripheral neuropathy can be caused by many different health conditions or injuries, the symptoms are often similar. At Caliber Pain™, we offer peripheral neuropathy treatment at our clinic in New York City to give our patients relief.
Symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral neuropathy can describe any dysfunction in the peripheral nerves. This can affect sensation and motor function in the skin, muscles and organs throughout the body. The most common symptoms of peripheral neuropathy involve sensation, movement and chronic pain. Patients with peripheral neuropathy may experience:
- Burning or shooting pain
- Tingling or “pins and needles” sensation
- Muscle weakness in limbs
The first step in treating peripheral neuropathy should be controlling or managing any health condition that is causing nerve irritation. Diabetes is a common health disorder that can result in nerve disorders, including peripheral neuropathy. However, the cause of peripheral neuropathy is not always known or easily controlled. In these cases, peripheral neuropathy treatment can involve nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation and other treatments to control chronic nerve pain.
Our pain specialists use a multidisciplinary approach to treating nerve pain disorders. When peripheral neuropathy is causing chronic pain or other symptoms, a comprehensive treatment plan can be created to stop or manage this condition. Our physicians work with the patient and their medical team to find the best treatment options for their specific chronic nerve pain condition.
