Neuropathic pain is a complex chronic pain condition caused by some types of nerve damage and dysfunction. It’s a type of pain that can be debilitating, and right now, there’s no cure.
Experiencing neuropathic pain can impact your physical, emotional, and social well-being — but you have options. In fact, stem cell therapy shows promise in treating neuropathic pain and improving quality of life.
Neuropathic pain takes many forms. The most common symptoms include burning, tingling, and shooting pain. Some individuals have also noted numbness or weakness in affected areas.
Neuropathic pain differs from other types of pain because it isn’t caused by tissue damage. Instead, pain signaling areas of your nervous system are damaged, and those injured nerves send pain signals to your brain.
That means neuropathic pain isn't always proportional to the stimulus, and small changes can cause increased pain sensations. Because of this, neuropathic pain can have serious consequences on your quality of life.
You might experience localized symptoms or pain that spreads throughout your body, making it difficult to perform everyday activities. Your pain may be so intense that it interferes with sleep, which then leads to fatigue and difficulty concentrating.
Neuropathic pain can also cause depression, anxiety, and irritability, which impact both your own mental well-being and your relationships with others.
Currently, there are no widely accepted long-term treatments for neuropathic pain, but stem cell therapy could be the answer for you. It’s a type of regenerative medicine that supplements your body with the natural materials it needs to heal itself.
Stem cells can develop into almost any other type of cell in your body. When you get stem cell therapy, those cells can help regenerate damaged tissue, reduce inflammation, and fight pain.
Dr. Robinson and our team offer a range of customizable solutions for neuropathic pain. Stem cell therapy involves collecting stem cells from your body, processing them, and injecting them back into your body where you’re feeling the most pain. In some cases, we may use donor stem cells.
If you suffer from neuropathic pain, schedule a consultation with Dr. Robinson to find out if it’s a good option for you. Stem cell therapy offers benefits for many people with neuropathic pain, including:
Along with improving pain levels, stem cell therapy can help minimize your need for medication like opioids. And finally, stem cell therapy can improve your emotional and psychological well-being. When you have less pain, your mood and quality of life can improve, too.
Neuropathic pain can be a debilitating condition, but it doesn’t have to destroy your quality of life.
