Peripheral Nerve Pain Management
Our nervous system is the vast network that carries signals from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. The central nervous system consists of the brain and spinal cord. All other nerves of the body make up the peripheral nervous system.
Irritation or abnormality of the nerves of the body cause chronic, long-lasting pain. Trauma, repetitive motion, disease or sometimes medical treatments like chemotherapy can cause ongoing, severe nerve pain in any peripheral nerves of the body.
For years, lifestyle changes, and medication were the only options to treat chronic nerve pain. Fortunately, now we have several additional options that may afford patients relief from ongoing, severe nerve pain when more traditional therapies have been unsuccessful.
Arlington Neurosurgical and Spine Associates offers the following minimally invasive treatments for chronic peripheral nerve pain:
- Carpal tunnel release
- Facet block
- Hardware block
- Intrathecal pump placement
