Neuropathy Pain Relief in Baton Rouge
Neuropathic pain is a complicated, chronic pain state that is usually followed by a tissue injury. Neuropathic pain, also known as peripheral neuropathy, develops when nerve fibers themselves are damaged, dysfunctional or injured. These damaged nerve fibers send false signals to other pain centers throughout your nervous system. The impact of a nerve fiber injury includes a change in nerve function both at the site of injury and areas around the injury.
At First Choice Health & Injury in Baton Rouge we offer a multi-disciplinary approach for reducing peripheral and diabetic neuropathic pain conditions. Our primary goals for treating neuropathy are to reduce the pain as much as possible and to help our patients manage any of their unresolved pain.

Peripheral Neuropathy Symptoms
Peripheral neuropathy is a condition of the peripheral nervous system that affects an estimated twenty million Americans. Symptoms usually start out as a change of sensation in the feet, like tingling, numbness, or burning, and can range in severity from mild discomfort to intense pain. These symptoms often get worse at night, robbing the patient of sleep, or worsening while standing, interfering with daily activities.
The challenge of peripheral neuropathy is that even though the symptoms might be tingling arms or feet, the damage could be anywhere in the nervous system. It could be that the nerves of the arms or feet are damaged, but the problem could also be anywhere along the path to the parietal lobe, or even in the parietal lobe itself. Sometimes a patient seems to be suffering from peripheral neuropathy, when the true issue that needs to be addressed is weakness in the parietal lobe.
Another problem of peripheral neuropathy is determining whether the underlying cause is illness. A patient could be suffering from diabetic peripheral neuropathy, but some other known causes of neuropathy include alcoholism, a poor diet, a reaction to certain medications like chemotherapy, or an autoimmune disease, like lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and Guillain-Barre syndrome. Many people, in fact, have a combination of causes contributing to their symptoms.
Peripheral neuropathy treatment commonly includes taking medication, but that course of action only addresses the symptoms, making it a temporary fix. Even though the patient may have relief from the discomfort and pain, the symptoms will return when the medication wears off. Fortunately, First Choice Health & Injury Clinic takes a multi-disciplinary approach to wellness, and has cutting edge treatments available for peripheral neuropathy.
Because First Choice Health & Injury Clinic offers such a wide variety of services, a customized plan for chronic pain management or treatment of other health conditions can be created to benefit each individual patient.
