Neuropathic Pain

Neuropathic pain is one of the many chronic pain condition treated at the Center for Pain Management. We have locations in Indianapolis, Greenwood and Lafayette where our pain management physicians, clinical pain specialists and medical staff offer extensive experience treating this serious pain disorder.

Learn About Neuropathic Pain Syndrome

Patients often describe their experience as:

  • “shooting pain”
  • “stabbing pain”
  • “burning pain”
  • “numbness”
  • “tingling” or “pins and needles”
  • “radiating pain”

Neuropathic pain is often associated with injury to or irritation of a nerve. This can result from direct pressure to a nerve as when disc material or a bone spur in the spine presses on a nerve or when a nerve is entrapped in scar tissue following surgery. Inflammation in the area of a nerve can also chemically irritate a nerve. Some conditions such as diabetes and some medications including chemotherapy agents can cause pathological changes in nerve tissue resulting in neuropathic pain. Examples include radiculopathy, sciatica, peripheral neuropathy, post herpetic neuralgia, and complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS or RSD).

Causes of neuropathic pain in the low back include disc problems, spinal stenosis, arachnoiditis, and scar tissue following surgery. Other causes  include diabetes, nerve injury due to trauma, chemotherapy, nerve entrapment syndromes, and viral infections. Neuropathic pain treatment often requires a combination of medications and/or nerve blocks, spinal cord stimulation and physical therapy.
