Pain arising from damage or disease to nerve tissues.
Nerve pain, also referred to as neuropathic pain, includes a range of pain conditions involving damage, compression or disease to your nerve tissues. It can often also have secondary effects on the immune system, triggering an inflammatory response that enables pain to persist long term.
Solving nerve pain generally involves a combination of targeted medical and lifestyle interventions, including low-risk medications, targeted nutraceuticals, nutritional support and physical therapy.
If you've undergone frontline treatments with limited success, you may also consider a pain procedure. Nerve pain procedures are highly specialised and minimally invasive – very different to typical invasive surgeries.
"In combination with multidisciplinary care and lifestyle changes, a PENs procedure can serve as a valuable tool for breaking the cycle of persistent nerve pain."
