Neuropathy Q&A

What is neuropathy?

Neuropathy is another word for nerve damage that occurs because of disease or injury. It can occur in both your central nervous system (the spinal cord and brain) and your peripheral nervous system (all the other nerves in your body).

There are hundreds of types of neuropathies, including over 100 types of peripheral neuropathy alone. Neuropathy can cause wide-ranging symptoms based on the types of nerves it occurs in.

What are the symptoms of neuropathy?

Neuropathy symptoms can occur in:

Sensory nerves
Your sensory nerves are those that transmit pain signals. Sensory nerve damage can cause serious pain, and may also lead to other uncomfortable issues, like pins-and-needles sensations, burning, and numbness.

Motor nerves
Your motor nerves send messages to your muscles. If your motor nerves sustain damage, you may experience muscle weakness, wasting, cramping, and other issues.

Autonomic nerves
Your autonomic nerves control your organs, so they regulate your breathing, heart rate, and other crucial bodily functions. Damage in these nerves can cause a wide range of issues, depending on the specific nerves involved. These symptoms may include problems like urinary issues, digestive difficulties, dizziness, and fainting.


How is neuropathy treated?

Neuropathy treatment requires an accurate diagnosis, so the Centennial Spine and Pain team starts with detailing your medical history and conducting a physical exam and testing to find the underlying causes of your nerve damage.

They’ll then recommend a treatment plan that strategically addresses the cause of your neuropathy. Your treatment may include:

  • Spinal Cord Stimulator
  • Peripheral Nerve Stimulator
  • Management of underlying medical conditions like diabetes
  • Oral medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Injections like epidural injections and nerve blocks
  • Radiofrequency ablation

In most cases, neuropathy affects the peripheral nerves in your legs, feet, and toes. But, nerve damage isn’t the only condition that can cause issues in your feet.

Two common foot issues that the Centennial Spine and Pain team also treats include COVID feet and diabetic foot neuromas. COVID feet is a condition that causes painful, swollen, and often bruised toes. Diabetic foot neuromas are noncancerous tumors that occur when a nerve grows pinched between your toes.
