Neuropathic Pain Treatments


Neuropathic pain, resulting from nerve damage or dysfunction, is a chronic condition that affects people worldwide. Ongoing research aims to better understand neuropathic pain and develop improved management strategies. Advancements in neurology and pain management offer hope for those facing this intricate battle.


Neuropathic pain, resulting from nerve damage or dysfunction, can persist beyond the expected healing period, significantly impacting daily life with shooting or burning pain, tingling, numbness, and heightened sensitivity to touch or temperature. Unlike acute pain, neuropathic pain can become a constant presence, varying in intensity, frequency, and response to treatment for each individual.


Neuropathic pain can arise from various conditions or injuries that affect the nerves. Common causes include:

  • Peripheral neuralgia: Damage to the peripheral nerves, often associated with conditions like diabetes, infections, autoimmune disorders, or trauma.
  • Nerve compression or entrapment: Pressure or compression on a nerve, as seen in conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome or sciatica.
  • Nerve injury: Direct damage to a nerve, frequently resulting from accidents, surgeries, or traumatic events.
  • Central nervous system disorders: Conditions that impact the brain or spinal cord, such as multiple sclerosis or stroke, can lead to neuropathic pain.

In addition to these causes, specific conditions like Postherpetic Neuralgia (shingles), Phantom Limb pain and Complex Regional pain Syndrome (CRPS) or Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), can also give rise to neuropathic pain.
