Nerves - Neuropathy
Nerve Pain is one of the most complicated types of chronic pain to treat, as there can be a number of causes. Dr Alison Richardson manages nerve pain with the goal of reducing the severity of the pain and improve the quality of life for the patient.
Dr Richardson begins by thoroughly examining the patient. If the cause of the pain can be identified, it can be treated and the patient will begin to feel relief. If the root cause of the pain cannot be identified, Dr Richardson will use pain management techniques to treat the pain, reducing the severity.
Pain management for nerve pain can include:
- Medications to manage symptoms
- Therapeutic nerve blocks to directly address affected nerves
- Injections in trigger points, dorsal roots, or peripheral nerves to provide pain relief
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Spinal pumps to deliver pain medication
- Physical therapy
Treatment for each individual is based on their specific needs and their reaction to treatment. Dr Alison Richardson is dedicated to helping each patient manage their pain through personalized treatment that suits their individual needs.
