Neuropathic Pain Treatment in Nagpur

Neuropathic pain, which results from nerve damage or dysfunction, can be challenging to manage, but several treatment options are available. Medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants are commonly prescribed to alleviate nerve pain. Physical therapy can help improve nerve function and reduce discomfort through targeted exercises. Nerve blocks, where medication is injected near the affected nerves, can provide temporary relief. In some cases, spinal cord stimulation or nerve decompression surgery may be considered for severe neuropathic pain. An individualized approach to treatment, often involving a combination of therapies, is essential to effectively manage neuropathic pain and enhance the patient's quality of life.

Signs and Symptoms

Neuropathic pain is characterized by distinct signs and symptoms, which may include:

  • Burning or Shooting Pain: Neuropathic pain often presents as a burning, shooting, or electric shock-like sensation.
  • Numbness or Tingling: Patients may experience numbness, tingling, or a "pins and needles" sensation in the affected area.
  • Hypersensitivity: An increased sensitivity to touch or pressure, even with light stimulation.
  • Allodynia: Pain in response to normally non-painful stimuli, such as a gentle touch or a light breeze.
  • Reduced Coordination: Neuropathic pain can lead to decreased coordination and muscle weakness in the affected area.
  • Chronic Pain: It is typically a chronic condition that persists for an extended period.
  • Localized Pain: The pain is often limited to a specific area, corresponding to the distribution of affected nerves.
  • Spontaneous Pain: Pain may occur without an obvious trigger or stimulus.
  • Nerve-Related Symptoms: Patients might experience symptoms related to the specific nerves affected, such as loss of reflexes or muscle atrophy.
  • Radiating Pain: Pain may radiate from the site of nerve damage to other areas of the body.
  • Worsening at Night: Neuropathic pain can be more pronounced at night, often interfering with sleep.

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options Available at Panax in Nagpur

  • Medication: Apart from regular pain killers, medications which act on the nerves are prescribed, which may be needed to be taken long term
  • Sympathetic plexus blocks: Certain nerves which are responsible for muscle tone and vasculature in the legs are blocked either chemically or through Radiofrequency ablation. This may help relieve the pain
  • Dry needling/IMS:This simple technique involves use of acupuncture needles for stimulation of the muscles of the legs and feet. This helps in relaxation of the muscles, improved blood flow, better nerve conduction and pain relief.
  • B0-TX injection:Injection of B0-Tx into the skin of the feet helps in reduction of pain associated with diabetic neuropathy
  • Stimpod:This involves passing of an electrical current through the leg nerves, which helps in better nerve conduction, relaxation of muscles and relief of nerve related pain
