Injury Doctors NYC specializes in providing comprehensive care for individuals suffering from neuropathy. 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 neuropathy:

Common Causes of Neuropathy:

Diabetes: Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication of diabetes, resulting from prolonged high blood sugar levels that damage nerves throughout the body, leading to pain, numbness, tingling, or weakness, typically in the feet and hands.

Chemotherapy:Chemotherapy-induced neuropathy is a side effect of certain cancer treatments, characterized by damage to peripheral nerves, leading to pain, numbness, or tingling in the hands and feet, as well as muscle weakness and balance issues.

Autoimmune Disorders: Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, or Guillain-Barré syndrome can cause autoimmune neuropathies, where the immune system attacks the body's own nerves, leading to pain, weakness, or sensory disturbances.

Vitamin Deficiencies: Deficiencies in vitamins such as B12, B6, or folate can lead to peripheral neuropathy, causing symptoms such as numbness, tingling, or burning sensations in the hands and feet.

Trauma or Injury:Physical trauma, repetitive stress injuries, or nerve compression can lead to nerve damage and neuropathic pain, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or nerve entrapment syndromes.


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

Medical History Review: Gathering information about your symptoms, medical history, underlying health conditions, medications, and lifestyle factors.

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), blood tests, imaging studies such as MRI or CT scans, and nerve biopsies to evaluate nerve function, identify underlying causes, and determine the extent of nerve damage.

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 pain relievers, antidepressants, anticonvulsants, or topical agents to alleviate neuropathic pain, improve nerve function, and manage associated symptoms such as depression or sleep disturbances.

Physical Therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises, stretches, and manual therapy techniques to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and coordination, as well as reduce muscle tension and improve overall function.

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 nerve regeneration, and provide pain relief.

Lifestyle Modifications: Implementing strategies such as maintaining stable blood sugar levels (for diabetic neuropathy), quitting smoking, managing weight, and optimizing nutrition to minimize further nerve damage and promote nerve healing.

Minimally Invasive Procedures: Administering nerve blocks, epidural injections, or nerve decompression surgeries to target specific nerve pathways, reduce inflammation, and alleviate neuropathic pain.

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