Neuropathy

 

With hundreds of different types identified, neuropathy, also known as peripheral neuropathy takes place when nerves become damaged and no longer function normally. The intensity of symptoms may vary throughout the day and oftentimes be challenging for patients who have to manage harsh symptoms on their own. Some people deal with tingling, numbness, burning, shocking sensations, aching, or pain. 

Available Treatments

Different treatments are available depending on the type, severity, and location of nerve damage. At BEST Health System, neuropathy is one of the many conditions we treat with expert care. Our chief of Surgery and Spine and Orthopaedic expert, Dr. Girton, works with neuropathy patients using a range of treatments. 

We offer modern solutions for patients struggling with diabetic neuropathy. One option, spinal cord stimulators, sometimes referred to as (SCS), deliver electrical pulses to the spinal cord. These pulses can then block pain signals from being sent to the brain. This allows diabetic neuropathy patients to minimize the pain they experience as a result of their condition. For patients with leg pain, spinal cord stimulators can relieve 50% of the pain. 

At BEST, we give patients a trial run with the SCS device so they can determine whether it is the right option for them. If patients find relief with it, we can implant a permanent device

Diagnostic Facet Injection

Using a steroid medication that is injected into the site of pain such as a joint, this technique is used to relieve pain.

Nerve Stimulation

By stimulating nerves and muscles within the leg, pain can be relieved. As well as improving blood flow, it strengthens the affected area.

Platelet-Rich Plasma

Your own blood plasma is used to make platelet-rich plasma, which is injected into the area of neuropathy in the body to stimulate it.

How To Know If You Have Neuropathy

If you have been experiencing trouble walking or loss of balance, sores or infections that take too long to heal, burning, tingling, numbness, pain or trouble sensing temperatures in the feet or hands, and/or swelling of the feet or hands. 

At our Outpatient Ambulatory Surgery Center, we provide many treatments and services based on our patient’s individual needs. If you are unsure if you have neuropathy or if you haven’t been diagnosed yet, BEST can help. First, we gather information about your condition and health history, perform an exam, perform diagnostic testing and then update the patient on the results and treatment options.
