With the ability to develop in many different forms, neuropathy is the result of nerve damage. There are various types of neuropathy, depending on the location of the affected nerve, including peripheral, proximal, autonomic, and focal neuropathy. Peripheral is the most prevalent form of neuropathy, affecting the nerves that are located outside of the spinal cord and brain, also known as the peripheral nerves. In addition to pain and discomfort, peripheral neuropathy can cause a variety of other symptoms that could require additional treatment. Our team of pain management experts at Tricity Pain Associates offers an array of treatment approaches to aid in alleviating the uncomfortable symptoms associated with neuropathy. Contact our Kyle, TX location to learn more and to schedule your initial consultation with one of our certified physicians.
In order to properly diagnose neuropathy and rule out any other possible conditions, we discuss your complete medical history and conduct a complete neurological evaluation. For many patients, a less invasive method of treatment will be first recommended, including prescription medications, physical therapy, and additional alternative approaches that might consist of lifestyle changes and/or acupuncture. In instances where more invasive forms of treatment may be necessary, nerve stimulation, a nerve block, or steroid injections could be utilized to alleviate symptoms of neuropathy. The exact treatment plan that is ideal for you will vary based upon your form of neuropathy and the extent of your symptoms.
