Have you tried everything you can (medications, creams, supplements, etc.) to subside your neuropathy pain but just can’t get it to fade? Neuropathy pain is common; it affects about 20 million people in the US alone. This is one condition our doctors here at Unity Physician Services consistently run in to. Thankfully, we know how to treat and relieve your neuropathy pain.
Neuropathy pain’s location depends on what nerve is damaged. When there is pressure on a major peripheral nerve that blocks its signal, it can be translated into seemingly unrelated symptoms. This makes it extremely hard to identify the true cause of your symptoms and is another reason to see a doctor for a proper diagnosis. The most common symptoms of neuropathy include:
- Foot and ankle pain
- Inflammation in knees, calves, or shoulders
- Limited movement
- Numbness and tingling
- Chronic pain
- Stiff neck
Common causes of neuropathy pain can stem from alcoholism, exposure to toxins, tumors, chronic diseases (i.e. HIV), or various poor daily habits like poor posture. You are also at an increased risk of immune system disorders, stress, anxiety, and depression when you suffer from neuropathy.
If you have tried everything to subside your neuropathy pain and nothing seems to work, it’s time to try alternative options. Set up an appointment with us here at Unity Physician Services and we can show you the non-surgical treatments we offer our patients’. Let’s get rid of that pain and make sure you’re pursuing your optimum health!
