Pain Mamagement & Causes and Types of Neuropathy

Neuropathy refers to a condition that occurs when nerves outside the brain and spinal cord are damaged or malfunctioning. It can have various causes, including:


Diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common types, resulting from high blood sugar levels damaging the nerves over time.


Certain infections, such as shingles, Lyme disease, and HIV/AIDS, can damage peripheral nerves and lead to neuropathy.

Cervical Stenosis

Narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck region can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, causing neck pain, weakness, and numbness.

Autoimmune Disorders

Conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, and Guillain-Barré syndrome can lead to neuropathy by causing inflammation and damage to the nerves.

Toxic Substances

Exposure to toxins, including certain medications (chemotherapy drugs, antiretrovirals), heavy metals, and industrial chemicals, can cause nerve damage.


Neuropathy Types of Diagnoses and Conditions

Neuropathy can manifest in various ways, and symptoms may include:


Tingling and Numbness

Sensations of tingling, numbness, or loss of feeling in the affected areas, often starting in the hands or feet and gradually spreading.


Muscle Weakness

Weakness or difficulty with coordination and balance, leading to falls or difficulty performing everyday tasks.


Burning or Shooting Pain

Persistent pain that may feel like a burning or shooting sensation, often worse at night.


Sensitivity to Touch

Heightened sensitivity to touch, temperature changes, or pressure, often leading to discomfort or pain.

Pain Management Treatment Options

At Kennedy Health, we offer comprehensive neuropathy care and treatment options:

Medication Management

Medications such as pain relievers, topical creams, antidepressants, or anticonvulsants may be prescribed to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.

Nerve Stimulation

Techniques such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or spinal cord stimulation can help alleviate neuropathic pain and improve quality of life.

Physical Therapy

Our experienced physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to improve strength, balance, and coordination, reducing the risk of falls and improving overall function.

Lifestyle Modifications

We provide guidance on adopting a healthy lifestyle, including managing blood sugar levels (in cases of diabetic neuropathy), proper nutrition, regular exercise, and avoiding or minimizing exposure to toxins.

Pain Management Techniques

Our team may recommend complementary therapies, such as acupuncture, massage therapy, or relaxation techniques, to help reduce pain and improve overall well-being.

Peripheral Nerve Surgery

In severe cases where conservative treatments are ineffective, surgical options, such as nerve decompression or transposition, may be considered to relieve pressure on the affected nerves.

Our medical professionals will conduct a thorough evaluation, including a review of your medical history and diagnostic tests (such as nerve conduction studies or electromyography), to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your specific type and severity of neuropathy. We prioritize personalized care and work closely with you to develop a comprehensive approach to manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
