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.
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:
Medications such as pain relievers, topical creams, antidepressants, or anticonvulsants may be prescribed to manage pain, reduce inflammation, and improve nerve function.
Techniques such as transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) or spinal cord stimulation can help alleviate neuropathic pain and improve quality of life.
Our experienced physical therapists design personalized exercise programs to improve strength, balance, and coordination, reducing the risk of falls and improving overall function.
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.
