Looking for Nueropathic Pain Treatment in Midland?
Neuropathic pain is a chronic pain condition. It’s usually the result of, or accompanied by, an injury, disease, or infection. However, neuropathic pain is not the direct result of any one factor.
Typically, pain is due to an injury or illness. For example, if you drop a heavy book on your foot, your nervous system sends signals of pain immediately after the book hits. With neuropathic pain, no event or injury causes the pain. Instead, the body just sends pain signals to your brain unprompted.
People with this pain condition may experience shooting, burning pain. The pain may be constant, or it may occur randomly. A feeling of numbness or a loss of sensation is common, too. Neuropathic pain may get worse over time, or it may get better.
About 1 in 3 Americans experience chronic pain. Of those, 1 in 5 experience neuropathic pain. One study estimates as many as 10 percent of Americans experience some form of neuropathic pain. We invite you to learn how Ketamine infusion therapy can help provide relief for your neuropathic pain.
