Our team at Complete Rehab specializes in treating neuropathy and helping you find relief for your symptoms. In this article, we will focus on neuropathic pain and provide an overview of some of the methods we use to alleviate that pain.
- Medication. One valuable tool for treating neuropathic pain is medication. Depending on the severity of your pain, you may be able to find relief by taking a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, such as Motrin or Aleve, or you may require a stronger, prescription painkiller. In addition, you may be prescribed anticonvulsants or antidepressants, as both have been shown to help manage neuropathic conditions.
- Management of Underlying Condition. In many cases, neuropathy is caused by an underlying condition, such as diabetes, in which case successfully treating neuropathic pain will require managing the condition. If your neuropathy is a result of diabetes, our team will work with you to manage your blood sugar to prevent further nerve damage.
- Physical Therapy. Another technique we use to manage neuropathic pain is physical therapy. In physical therapy, you will work your muscles and joints to restore range of motion, build strength, and relieve tension that may be causing pain. Many people also find that their neuropathic pain responds well to massage or relaxation therapy.
If you are suffering from neuropathic pain and are looking for relief, we encourage you to give us a call to consult one of our experts. We’ll help you alleviate your symptoms, so you can start enjoying life more.
