Nerve Pain Surgery at SPINE/RX
What Is Nerve Pain?
Nerve pain in the arms, hands, legs and feet usually results from one or more pinched nerves in the neck or back. The burning and tingling sensation that results from pinched nerves can be disabling. Weakness of the muscles can result in severe cases. Often the cause of the pinched nerve can be identified by advanced diagnostic testing. Pressure on the nerve from a problem in the spine can often be reduced or alleviated once the cause is identified. Seek a consultation with a specialist if your nerve pain lasts longer than a few days.
How Is Nerve Pain Treated?
Nerve pain is most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Nerve Pain?
Surgery may be recommended for nerve pain if it does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with nerve pain of a spinal origin can be disabling, and may cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve nerve pain, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
