After determining the cause of and severity of nerve pain, your pain management specialist might recommend:
Lifestyle changes that can address nerve pain include eating a healthy diet, taking multivitamin supplements as needed, getting regular exercise, and maintaining a healthy weight. You might also experience pain relief after undergoing acupuncture.
Taking certain medications can alleviate nerve pain if other treatments haven’t worked. Your specialist lets you know which medicines best match your needs.
Physical therapy can relieve a pinched nerve, strengthen surrounding tissue, and prevent future nerve problems. Therapeutic massage is often effective for nerve pain relief too.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
Your pain specialist might use TENS to deliver small electrical currents to nerves to alleviate discomfort.
Your provider may suggest epidural and peripheral nerve injections to help you feel more comfortable. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections use growth factors sourced from your blood to stimulate your body’s natural healing response.
Spinal cord stimulation
Your provider can implant a spinal cord stimulator beneath your skin to send electrical pulses to your spinal cord and diminish nerve pain.
During fluoroscopy-guided radiofrequency ablation, your provider uses a needle to heat targeted nerves and block pain signals to your brain.
