Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in Florham Park, NJ

Peripheral neuropathy is a painful condition that affects millions of people each year in the United States. It occurs when damage or disease has occurred in the nerves that carry messages from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body.

Peripheral nerves originate in the spinal cord and flow out along lines in the body known as dermatomes. When one of these nerves becomes damaged, it can affect one or more dermatomes, causing pain to then radiate out to specific areas of the body.

This type of nerve damage can interrupt communication between the brain and other parts of the body. It also can impair muscle movement, inhibit normal feeling in the arms and legs, and cause pain which can sometimes be intense.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

People develop peripheral neuropathy for many different reasons. It can be acquired through diabetes, poor nutrition, disease, or infection. It also can be hereditary, although this is not as common.

And in some instances, the original cause of peripheral neuropathy is never determined. This is called idiopathic neuropathy and as many as a third of all people in Florham Park, NJ, with peripheral neuropathy fall into this category.

Treatments for Peripheral Neuropathy

Treatment for peripheral neuropathy depends on the type and severity of the condition. Some people respond to anti-seizure medications, while others benefit from antidepressants.

Capsaicin cream also is sometimes used to provide modest improvement in peripheral neuropathy symptoms.

Relieving the Pain of Peripheral Neuropathy

Because peripheral neuropathy can be such a painful condition, eradicating the suffering is generally top treatment priority.

After searching for answers, for the past ten months, through a host of doctors, imaging and medical facilities, Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation Center was what I was looking for! I remember calling their office five minutes before closing in a state of desperation. Despite their day ending, they took the time to listen carefully to my concerns and answer all of my questions beyond the end of their work day. As I hung up the phone, I finally had an appointment and some hope. Dr. Tyminski sat with my husband and I and, in detail, reviewed the results of my cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine MRI's. He took the time to explain my situation and gave me a plan of action. Finally, after months and months of searching I felt that I had someone who understood my condition and had a plan to help address it. After three weeks in, I have nothing but praise for the entire team at Total Health Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Center. Their professional, supportive, and compassionate care is outstanding!

When I first came here two months ago I was in so much pain and was feeling very discouraged. Everyone has been so helpful and so kind and this has made a huge difference for me. I am experiencing no pain and I have not taken an Advil in over a month. Dr. Locatelli and Dr. Sheppard have been so helpful and kind and caring. Janet, Beth and Jan in Physical Therapy have been tremendously helpful and they are making a big difference in my treatment. Also, every time I walk in, there is Kalayha, greeting me warmly and making me feel welcomed and always helpful setting up my appointments and just being awesome. I highly recommend Total Health Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation.

The staff and doctors are kind and cheerful and helpful in the face of my handicaps; I'm grateful for their service, and I recommend them heartily.

Everyone at the center is so nice and friendly. Very helpful and the decompression therapy that I did helped with my herniated disc. Now doing acupuncture and that seems to be helping with some other health issues that I have. Plus it's so relaxing.
