Neuropathy Therapy

Neuropathy Treatment in Covington and Hammond

All American Medical provides natural treatments like regenerative medicine, therapeutic ultrasound and electrical stimulation for neuropathic pain.

We use non-invasive natural therapies that target the physiological causes of neuropathic pain.

These therapies can provably reduce swelling, ease nerve sensitivity, and increase mobility, unlike taking opioid medications long-term for nerve pain relief. 

Peripheral Neuropathy Therapy
Left untreated, neuropathy can lead to severe and irreversible nerve damage along with worsening, painful symptoms.

Natural Pain Management Options for Neuropathy

Although medications can initially treat nerve pain, they are not always effective. They also have unwanted side effects.

The All-American Medical team, consisting of orthopedic/spine specialists and pain management specialists, offers natural pain management treatments that relieve nerve discomfort without medication.

We understand the impact of neuropathic pain on your daily life, and we’re here to offer a range of services to support your well-being, including: 

Platelet-Rich Plasma Injection Therapy

PRP injections use the healing abilities of your own blood to stimulate nerve growth and recovery.

Peripheral Nerve Stimulation (PNS)

Once an injured nerve has been identified, it can be electrically blocked using a small wire, similar to a pacemaker. 

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

After a diagnosis block confirms the cause of pain, heat is applied in the form of FM radio waves to desensitize the nerves causing pain. The relief usually lasts 9-12 months and can be repeated.

Neuromodulation

An FDA-approved therapy that blocks pain at the spinal cord level using a small wire similar to a pacemaker and a battery. This treatment is effective in treating painful diabetic neuropathy, according to new research.

How All-American Medical Approaches Neuropathy

Our neuropathic pain treatments are designed to provide relief by targeting the root causes of pain or by effectively managing the associated symptoms. 

  1. Diagnose The Source: Unlike acute pain, which is often a direct response to injury or inflammation, neuropathic pain stems from malfunctions or damage in the nervous system.

    These can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint, but All American has the experience to find these sources of pain.
  2. Create A Treatment Plan: Addressing neuropathic pain without drugs or surgery requires a comprehensive approach that considers both the underlying factors and the specific symptoms experienced by individuals.

    We will make a plan that is specific to you and your conditions.
  3. Adjust the Treatment Plan as Needed: It’s crucial to recognize that managing neuropathic pain is a complex process, and its effectiveness may vary significantly from person to person. 

How Long Does the Pain Relief Last?

The duration of pain relief for each treatment can vary widely depending on the specific treatment modality, the underlying cause of neuropathic pain, and individual patient factors.

It’s crucial to note that neuropathic pain is often a chronic condition, and complete resolution of pain may not always be possible. The goal of treatment is often to manage and reduce pain, improve function, and enhance the overall quality of life.

What Exactly is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is when the nerves in the extremities lose their normal function due to injury or destruction. This interferes with the normal functioning of the nerves. It’s possible that they’ll send a pain signal even if something is hurting you or that they won’t send a signal at all.

What Conditions Cause Neuropathic Pain?

Nerves play a crucial role in transmitting sensory information. When nerves are injured, they send signals that result in the sensation of pain. This type of pain is typically characterized by sudden, sharp, stabbing, or burning sensations.

Damage, irritation, or inflammation of a nerve due to a disease can lead to the experience of pain. Various health conditions can be responsible for causing nerve pain, such as:

  • Diabetes (Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy)
  • Stroke
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Cancer & Chemotherapy
  • Spinal Stenosis
  • Herniated Disk
  • Carpal tunnel Syndrome
  • Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • Postherpetic Neuralgia (Shingles)
  • Alcoholism

If not treated, nerve pain can develop into a chronic condition. Over time, biochemical changes can cause the nerves to become hypersensitive. This causes the pain to be magnified.

Who Should Consider Neuropathic Pain Treatments?

Neuropathic pain is a type of pain that originates from damage or malfunction in the nervous system. The symptoms of neuropathic pain can vary widely, but some common characteristics include the following:

  • Burning Sensation: Patients often describe neuropathic pain as a burning or tingling sensation. It may feel like pins, needles, electric shocks, or a stabbing pain.
  • Hyperalgesia: This refers to an increased sensitivity to pain. Individuals with neuropathic pain may experience heightened pain responses to stimuli that would normally be non-painful.
  • Allodynia: Allodynia is the experience of pain from stimuli that are not typically painful. For example, a gentle touch or a light breeze might cause pain in affected areas.
  • Numbness or Loss of Sensation: In some cases, neuropathic pain can be accompanied by numbness or a reduction in sensation. This may result in difficulty feeling textures, temperatures, or other sensory input.
  • Pins and Needles Sensation: Some individuals may experience a sensation similar to “pins and needles,” often described as tingling or prickling.
  • Shooting or Radiating Pain: Neuropathic pain can often shoot or radiate along the nerves. This type of pain may follow a specific pathway and can be triggered or worsened by movement.
  • Spontaneous Pain: Neuropathic pain can occur spontaneously without an apparent cause. It may come and go or be constant.
  • Motor Symptoms: In some cases, neuropathic pain can be associated with motor symptoms, such as weakness or muscle twitching.

Complementary and Alternative Therapies

Acupuncture, massage, and other alternative therapies complement traditional treatments. While their effectiveness can vary, some individuals find relief through these approaches.

Lifestyle Modifications: Lifestyle changes, such as maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and managing stress, can contribute to overall well-being and may help alleviate neuropathic pain.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy can help improve strength, flexibility, and overall function. Specific exercises may be designed to alleviate nerve compression or improve posture, reducing pain symptoms.

Heat and Cold Therapy: Applying heat or cold to the affected area may help alleviate neuropathic pain. Warm compresses or cold packs can be used depending on individual preferences.
