Nerve Pain

The nerves that allow you to feel pain or other sensations are called sensory nerves.

Sensory nerves relay information from your skin and muscles back to your spinal cord and brain where they are processed in the central nervous system (CNS). When the sensory nerves become damaged, they may produce the following symptoms:

  • Pain

  • Sensitivity

  • Numbness

  • Tingling or prickling

  • Burning

  • Problems with positional awareness


Possible treatment options include:

  • Epidural Injections in the case when there is a herniated or degenerated disc

  • Perineural Injection Therapy for chronic peripheral nerve entrapments

  • Prolotherapy

  • Implantable Therapy such as Spinal Cord Stimulation

  • Medications for treatment and pain relief
