Neuropathy and Physical Therapy

//Neuropathy and Physical Therapy

Neuropathy and Physical Therapy

We have been talking about pain the last few weeks. There are different types of pain and you can read our first two blogs here.  Our final post (for now!) talks about neuropathy and physical therapy. Neuropathy is one of the most challenging types of pain to manage. There are many challenges posed by this type of ongoing discomfort. These challenges go beyond the pain itself and include attempts to address it at its source. The source is often difficult to determine. Sometimes a brain injury or spinal cord injury is the cause. Damage to nerves from illness or accident can also be a factor.

Neuropathy is defined as pain that is generated from “injury to sensory or motor nerves in the the peripheral nervous system.” It is usually chronic, in terms of its persistence.  It is, however,  described as feeling different than musculoskeletal pain. Sufferers use these words to define it: severe, sharp, stabbing, burning, cold. It might also occur with ongoing numbness, tingling and weakness.

Neuropathy has another dark side. Opioids and NSAIDS are generally not very effective. These drugs also come with a variety of unpleasant side effects. So not only is this type of pain poorly handled by these drugs, they pose complications of their own.

So what is a person with neuropathic pain to do? In addition to working with a qualified physician, a physical therapist can help.

Physical therapists have a lot of options and tools.

Specific exercises to help make the person stronger can make a difference over time. Techniques to improve movement without pain help lessen pain.  Targeted light exercises and stretching can also provide improved function and reduced pain.  Manual therapy and therapeutic massage might be prescribed.  Electrical stimulation might be an appropriate treatment for painful muscle spasms.  Neuropathic pain, especially when chronic, can be a major challenge. Physical therapy can help a person cope and feel stronger. We can help you.

    What’s up to every single one, it’s truly a pleasant for me to
    pay a visit this web site, it contains important Information.

  2. minecraft October 5, 2018 at 2:14 am

    Right now it looks like BlogEngine is the preferred blogging platform available right now.

    (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re
    using on your blog?

  3. minecraft October 5, 2018 at 2:38 am

    Hello to every body, it’s my first go to see of this website; this webpage carries amazing and in fact good stuff for visitors.

  4. minecraft October 5, 2018 at 8:38 pm

    It’s in fact very difficult in this busy life to
    listen news on TV, so I only use world wide web for that purpose, and get the latest news.

  5. minecraft October 6, 2018 at 1:53 am

    Good day! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after going through
    many of the articles I realized it’s new to me. Regardless, I’m definitely delighted I stumbled upon it and I’ll be book-marking it and checking back regularly!

  6. minecraft October 6, 2018 at 6:11 pm

    Awesome blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!

  7. minecraft October 7, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    Howdy are using WordPress for your blog platform?
    I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and
    create my own. Do you need any coding knowledge to make your
    own blog? Any help would be really appreciated!

  8. minecraft October 7, 2018 at 5:16 pm

    I am truly delighted to read this blog posts which carries lots of helpful
    information, thanks for providing these information.

  9. minecraft October 7, 2018 at 11:57 pm

    Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the other
    person’s blog link on your page at proper place and other person will also do same in favor
    of you.

  10. minecraft October 8, 2018 at 1:41 am

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does building a well-established website like yours require a large amount of work?
    I’m completely new to blogging but I do write in my journal every
    day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online.

    Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring blog owners.
    Thankyou!

    copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.

    from being stolen? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
