Nerve Pain

Injury Doctors NYC specializes in providing comprehensive care for individuals experiencing nerve pain. Our team of experienced medical professionals is dedicated to diagnosing the underlying cause of your discomfort and implementing personalized treatment plans to effectively alleviate your symptoms. Below, we outline the common causes, diagnosis, and treatment options for nerve pain:

Common Causes of Nerve Pain:

Peripheral Neuropathy: Damage or dysfunction of the peripheral nerves, often due to conditions such as diabetes, autoimmune diseases, infections, traumatic injuries, or exposure to toxins, resulting in tingling, burning, numbness, or shooting pain in the extremities.

Sciatica: Compression or irritation of the sciatic nerve, the largest nerve in the body, typically caused by a herniated disc, spinal stenosis, or muscle imbalances, leading to radiating pain, numbness, or weakness along the buttocks, thigh, and leg.

Trigeminal Neuralgia: A chronic pain condition affecting the trigeminal nerve, which supplies sensation to the face, often characterized by sudden, intense facial pain, triggered by activities such as chewing, speaking, or touching the face.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Compression of the median nerve as it travels through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, commonly due to repetitive motions, wrist injuries, or underlying conditions such as arthritis, resulting in numbness, tingling, or weakness in the hand and fingers.

Postherpetic Neuralgia: Persistent nerve pain following a shingles (herpes zoster) outbreak, caused by damage to the sensory nerves during the acute phase of the infection, leading to stabbing or burning pain in the affected area.


When you visit Injury Doctors NYC for nerve pain evaluation, our skilled physicians will conduct a thorough assessment, which may include:

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your symptoms, medical history, previous injuries, and underlying health conditions.

Neurological Examination: Assessing sensory perception, reflexes, muscle strength, and coordination, as well as identifying areas of numbness, tingling, or hypersensitivity.

Diagnostic Testing: Ordering nerve conduction studies, electromyography (EMG), imaging studies such as MRI or CT scans, and blood tests to evaluate nerve function, identify structural abnormalities, and rule out underlying causes contributing to your nerve pain.

Treatment Options:

Based on the diagnosis, our team will develop a customized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and preferences. Treatment options may include:

Medications: Prescribing medications such as analgesics, anti-inflammatory drugs, anticonvulsants, tricyclic antidepressants, or topical agents to alleviate nerve pain, reduce inflammation, and modulate pain signals.

Nerve Blocks: Administering injections of local anesthetics, corticosteroids, or neurolytic agents to block pain signals and provide temporary or long-lasting relief from nerve pain.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises, stretches, manual therapy techniques, and nerve gliding exercises to improve mobility, reduce muscle tension, and alleviate nerve compression or entrapment.

Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS): Using a portable TENS device to deliver low-voltage electrical impulses to the skin, helping to disrupt pain signals, stimulate endorphin release, and provide pain relief.

Lifestyle Modifications: Implementing strategies to minimize nerve pain triggers, such as avoiding repetitive motions, maintaining proper posture, wearing supportive footwear, and practicing stress management techniques.

Surgical Intervention: In cases of severe or refractory nerve pain, surgical procedures such as decompression surgery, nerve repair or grafting, or neurostimulation techniques may be considered to alleviate nerve compression, restore function, and improve quality of life.

At Injury Doctors NYC, our primary goal is to alleviate your nerve pain and restore your quality of life. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and take the first step toward effective nerve pain relief.
