Neuropathy

What is Neuropathic Pain?

Neuropathic Pain – This is pain that is associated with actual nerve damage. This type of pain is often more intense and is described as a sharp or stabbing feeling. Phantom limb pain, pain associated with post-mastectomy, and diabetic neuropathy are examples of neuropathic pain. A combination of physical therapy and electrotherapy is sometimes used to treat neuropathic pain.

How Can Physical Therapy Help?

Physical therapy can play a crucial role in alleviating and eliminating this type of pain. One of the most important aspects of providing an effective treatment plan for pain is to make sure it is personalized. Our physical therapy provides personalization. A physical therapist will do a comprehensive exam to assess the root cause of chronic pain. Using that information, the therapist will customize an individualized therapy plan.
