At American Pain and Wellness, we offer comprehensive and top-quality treatment to reduce nerve pain. Treatment for nerve pain can vary depending on the underlying cause of the pain, as well as the severity of the symptoms. Some common treatment options include:
● Medications – Over-the-counter pain relievers such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can help alleviate mild to moderate nerve pain. Prescription medications such as antidepressants, anticonvulsants, and local anesthetics may also be used to help manage nerve pain.
● Physical therapy – Physical therapy can help to alleviate pain and improve function by strengthening muscles and improving flexibility.
● Nerve blocks – Nerve blocks can be used to interrupt pain signals along specific nerves.
Other options for treating nerve pain include surgery and alternative therapies. You can trust the professionals at American Pain and Wellness to design the most effective treatment plan to manage your pain. At our clinic, you will get the best care and service.
Nerve damage can range in severity, with some cases being minor and others being more severe. In general, nerve damage can cause a range of symptoms such as pain, numbness, tingling, weakness, and difficulty with coordination and balance. In more severe cases, nerve damage can lead to permanent loss of sensation or muscle function. It is common for nerve damage to alter your quality of life and make it much harder to perform daily tasks.
It is important to seek medical attention if you suspect you have nerve damage, as early treatment may help prevent or minimize further damage. At American Pain and Wellness, we are here to support you and help you manage the symptoms of nerve damage before your condition progresses.
Pain is one of the most common symptoms of nerve damage. Nerve damage can cause a range of pain sensations, from a mild ache to a sharp, shooting pain. Other common symptoms of nerve damage include numbness, tingling, and weakness in the affected area. In some cases, nerve damage can also cause difficulty with coordination and balance, as well as muscle weakness or atrophy.
It is common for the symptoms of nerve damage to vary depending on the location and extent of the damage. Symptoms can also change or progress over time. It’s best to consult a doctor if you suspect you have nerve damage, as early treatment gives you the highest chance of rehabilitation.
There are three main types of nerve injury, each with varying degrees of severity:
● Neuropraxia – This is the least severe type of nerve injury and is characterized by a temporary disruption of nerve function. It is typically caused by compression or stretching of the nerve, such as from a direct blow or a repetitive motion. Symptoms of neuropraxia may include tingling, numbness, and weakness in the affected area, but full recovery is expected with proper treatment and rehabilitation.
● Axonotmesis – This type of nerve injury is more severe than neuropraxia and involves damage to the axon, which is the part of the nerve responsible for transmitting electrical signals. The surrounding structures of the nerve, such as the myelin sheath, are still intact. Symptoms of axonotmesis may include severe pain and a loss of muscle function in the affected area. Full recovery may take several months or even years and may be impossible in some cases.
● Neurotmesis – Neurotmesis is the most severe type of nerve injury and involves damage to both the axon and the surrounding structures of the nerve. This type of injury is often caused by severe trauma such as a deep laceration or crush injury. Symptoms of neurotmesis include severe pain, complete loss of muscle function in the affected area, and significant loss of sensation. Recovery from this type of injury can be extremely difficult and may involve surgical intervention and extensive rehabilitation.
All 3 types of nerve injuries can lead to permanent disability if not treated in a timely manner and with appropriate care. The professionals at American Pain and Wellness will provide you with the most effective treatment plan for the type of nerve injury you have.
