While University Spine & Pain Center treats many illnesses which affect the body’s skeletal systems and muscular systems, there are other conditions which our team also focuses on. Considered by many in medicine to be the most difficult ailments to treat, conditions that affect the nervous system provide a substantial challenge for even the best pain management doctor in Los Angeles. Fortunately for our patients, University Spine & Pain Center has the team and tools to treat extensive nervous system damage.
A result of damage dealt to the body’s nervous system, peripheral neuralgia is a painful and difficult condition from which to suffer. Peripheral neuralgia can occur as a result of damage from various causes: physical trauma, disease, and surgical damage are just a few potential reasons for the development of the ailment. When the nervous system is damaged, the body sends out confused signals to the brain which leads to acute pain in particular parts of the body or tingling in the extremities. The delicate nature of the nervous system means that pain can strike at any time and often without warning. Peripheral neuralgia is often treated with antidepressants, anticonvulsants, alternative therapy, and pain relief medications.
