Do you experience a stabbing, burning pain that seems to travel alongside a nerve? You may have neuralgia, a condition that causes chronic or recurring pain due to an irritated or damaged nerve. Neuralgia can occur anywhere in the body. Our Oxford chiropractor provides treatment for neuralgia here at the American Back Institute. Find out more about neuralgia causes, types, and managing neuralgia with chiropractic treatment.
Neuralgia causes include:
Postherpetic neuralgia is a complication of shingles, a type of viral infection that causes a painful rash and blisters. This type of neuralgia can cause pain anywhere in the body, wherever the outbreak of shingles appeared. The pain occurs along the path of a nerve, so the pain usually happens on just one side of the body. Pain may last for years and be mild or severe, and intermittent or persistent.
Trigeminal neuralgia affects the trigeminal nerve. This nerve carries sensations and messages back and forth from your face to your brain. Pain may be the result of a blood vessel pressing against a nerve, nerve injury, multiple sclerosis, or another cause.
Trigeminal neuralgia is most common in people who are over the age of 50. Severe, recurrent pain typically occurs on just one side of your face.
This neuralgia causes pain in the glossopharyngeal nerve in the throat. This condition is rare.
Treatment for neuralgia typically includes chiropractic care, physical rehabilitation, and nutrition counseling.
Chiropractic care is a safe, effective treatment for neuralgia. Chiropractic care includes spinal decompression to alleviate pressure on nerves, physical therapy to relieve pain, and nutrition counseling to strengthen the body’s nervous system and healing.
