Nerve pain, also called neuropathic pain, can be mild and annoying or it can be intense enough to cause disability. Pain may subside one day, only to return the following day, or it may seem to affect different parts of the body.
The inconsistent and unpredictable nature of neuropathic pain can be extremely frustrating for people who have this condition. At Integrated Pain Solutions, we know how to help people gain control of their symptoms.

Neuropathic pain typically develops due to direct damage to a nerve, dysfunction or abnormality within the nervous system itself, or as a side effect of some other condition. A few common issues and conditions associated with neuropathic pain include:
If neuropathic pain is caused by another underlying health condition like diabetes, additional symptoms related to that condition may present, including delayed wound healing and skin quality changes.
Treatment for neuropathic pain needs to be individualized for optimal results. We help our patients alleviate or control their nerve pain with treatments such as steroid injections, oral analgesics, nerve blocks, and spinal cord stimulator implants. PRIALT®, a non-narcotic medication administered by intrathecal infusion therapy, is also effective at relieving chronic neuropathic pain.
