Neuralgia \ Neuropathy

Neuralgia \ Neuropathy is a condition that arises when there is a problem with your nervous system.

Your nerves are those that travel from your brain and your spinal cord throughout your entire body to deliver information and sensation. These nerves may be damaged in a wide variety of ways, so there is no single reason someone may suffer from Neuralgia or Neuropathy. This may include:

  • Result of diabetes
  • Kidney disorder
  • Liver disorder
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Infection
  • Trauma
  • Alcoholism
  • Vitamin deficiency

Because the nervous system travels throughout the body, this means these nerves play a large role in the function of every body part. As such, Neuralgia\Neuropathy can create a variety of issues just about anywhere. The conditions vary on a case-to-case basis, but may include:

  • Numbness, tingling or pain in extremities
  • Weakness
  • Impaired coordination
  • Cramps or muscle spasms
  • Heightened sensitivity to heat
  • Digestive and urinary issues
  • Heightened heart rate or blood pressure

Treatment for Neuralgia \ Neuropathy will vary based on each unique situation. Again, since the nervous system travels throughout the entire body, the condition may affect two different people in entirely different ways, in entirely different areas. Treatment may include medications or sessions of physical therapy. Nerve stimulation therapy or Nerve blocks may also be utilized to combat the issue and return the nerves to proper working order. No matter the case – your treatment plan is always built just for you.
