Neuropathy Pain Management Services: Your Path to Comfort and Wellness

At St. Louis Pain Consultants, we offer neuropathy pain management services. We use comprehensive assessments, tailored treatment plans, and more to help increase your comfort and relieve neuropathy-related pain. Here is more information regarding our neuropathy services:

What Is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a condition that affects the peripheral nervous system, leading to symptoms such as tingling, numbness, and sharp pain. It can result from various causes, including diabetes and autoimmune diseases. To effectively manage neuropathic pain, our team aims to find the underlying causes and triggers and utilize state of the art treatment methods to relieve your pain.

How Do We Use Comprehensive Assessment and Diagnosis?

Our pain management specialists may recommend diagnostic tools such as Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) and Electromyogram (EMG), to identify the specific type and extent of your neuropathy. This detailed understanding allows them to create personalized treatment plans. They use these plans to address the root cause of your pain rather than simply mask the symptoms.

What Are Tailored Treatment Plans?

Our progressive approach incorporates the specifics of each patient’s condition to create individualized treatment plans. Each plan is followed and adjusted until adequate pain relief is reached. Treatment plans may include medication modifications, physical therapy, and innovative interventions like nerve blocks and electrical nerve stimulation. Our holistic approach helps make sure that all aspects of your health are evaluated, which can enhance the effectiveness of the treatment.

Do We Offer Medication Management?

Medication may play a role in managing neuropathic pain. Depending on your specific symptoms and medical history, pain management services may prescribe and adjust treatment medications. The goal is to find the right dosage to alleviate pain while minimizing potential side effects. Regular medication monitoring helps make sure that your regimen remains suitable as your condition improves.

How Does Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation Work?

Physical therapy is a potential treatment option for neuropathy pain. You can use targeted exercises and rehabilitation programs to help improve muscle strength, flexibility, and overall function. Our physicians often collaborate with physical therapists to design personalized regimens.

What Treatment Options are available?

St. Louis Pain Consultants offers innovative techniques such as  Peripheral nerve stimulation which is a minimally invasive treatment to target specific nerves to alleviate pain. A trial using temporary leads can help determine if this will be an effective option. If it is, we can place a permanent stimulator for long-term pain relief.  Another option is spinal cord stimulation which may be used to treat chronic nerve pain in the arms, legs, and back. The treatment uses electrodes to block incoming pain signals as they move through the spinal cord to the brain. Temporary leads are used to determine whether the therapy is effective. If the leads provide pain relief, we replace them with permanent leads.

How Do We Educate and Support?

To help you understand your condition, our pain management specialists can explain the specifics of your neuropathy diagnosis. We also discuss treatment options and management and your role in your treatment and well-being.

How Do We Plan for Long-term Wellness?

Neuropathy is a chronic condition that requires a long-term approach to management. Our pain management team plans for more than immediate relief. We focus on strategies for long-term wellness. This may involve lifestyle modifications, ongoing monitoring, and adjustments to your treatment plan as needed. We aim to manage pain while enhancing the overall quality of life and promoting lasting comfort.
