Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in Youngstown, OH

Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition that affects millions of people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

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

This type of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

People develop peripheral neuropathy for many different reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also can be hereditary, although this is not as common.

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 Youngstown, OH, with peripheral neuropathy fall into this category.

Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy depends on the type and severity of the condition. 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.

Relieving the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy

Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, eradicating the suffering is generally top treatment priority.

I highly recommend Ohio Pain and Rehabilitation. Dr. Chris and his staff (Scott and Jen) were friendly and professional. They make you feel at ease and compiled a treatment plan that was exactly what I needed. They helped me through a hard time with compassion and understanding. With a lot of hard work and their expertise and guidance, I made a full recovery and feel great.

Dr. Efthimiou introduced a laser therapy to me in which he suggested trying on my shoulder due to inflammation & pain. After a few sessions of laser therapy, I was able to gain full strength again. His team is amazing as they also offered therapy in addition to the laser. Thank you Dr. Efthimiou!

Dr. Chris and Team, did an outstanding job taking care of and healing my son's broken fibula during his senior football season. Dr. Chris, using Laser along with Indiba Radio Frequency Therapy, helped him fully recover within 5 weeks to finish his senior football season. Very Thankful for the excellent care and knowledge of Dr. Chris!

i was definitely a little skeptical about spinal decompressive therapy however, i cannot truly believe the results i have achieved with this therapy. i was told i needed a three level cervical fusion and instead opted for nonsurgical approach. i’m still in the process of completing my therapy but it is definitely a therapy that many should look into. Dr Chris and his staff are great.
