Neuropathic Pain

If you have been diagnosed with neuropathic pain, then your doctor thinks you have nerve pain.

Neuropathic pain can result from a variety of conditions such as nerve compression, nerve trauma, neuropathy, spinal cord injury, or any chronic disease which may result in changes in nerve conduction.

Neuropathic pain may result in chronic pain and is one of the conditions where a prompt referral to a pain management specialist may greatly impact on how well your pain is controlled.

At the offices of Dr. Nolan Tzou, we have experience in diagnosing and treating neuropathic pain. A number of treatments are available that could greatly impact on a patient's quality of life. Including nerve blocks, pain medication, spinal cord stimulators, and intrathecal pumps.

Neuropathic pain may be misdiagnosed or ignored by other doctors who are more concerned about treating the disease rather than the patient. Dr. Tzou is committed to improving quality of life, and to that end, finding an individualized solution to a particular patient's painful condition.
