Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment Program in Scranton, PA

What is Peripheral Neuropathy?

Peripheral neuropathy is a very painful condition that affects millions of people every year in the US. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry signals from the brain and spinal cord to the entire body.

Peripheral nerves originate in the spinal cord and spread along lines in the body known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes injured, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then emanate out to specific areas of the body.

This variety of nerve damage can interrupt communication among the brain and other portion of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, hinder normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be extreme.

Reasons For Peripheral Neuropathy.

People develop peripheral neuropathy for several reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also may possibly be hereditary, although this is not as typical.

And in some instances, the original cause of peripheral neuropathy is never determined. This is called idiopathic neuropathy and as many as a third of all people in Scranton PA, with peripheral neuropathy fall under this category.

Treatments Plans for Peripheral Neuropathy.

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy depends on the type and severity of the problem. Some people respond to anti-seizure medications, while others benefit from antidepressants.

Capsaicin cream also is sometimes used to provide modest improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.
