How Treatment Of Nerve Pain Differs From Others?


Question: How Does The Treatment Of Nerve Pain Differ From Treatments For Other Kinds Of Pain, And What's The Best Way To Treat Nerve Pain?

Answer: We usually use anti-seizure medicine and antidepressants initially to treat nerve pain. Other drugs such as opiates may also be used for people who do not get relief from the other medicines.

We also have interventional treatments which include epidural injections, sympathetic nerve blocks and spinal cord stimulators. These are sometimes used in combination with other medicines. These strategies are very successful in relieving nerve pain in our patients.
