Nerve pain treatment in Singapore that will help improve your condition
Effective nerve pain treatment can help to prevent severe complications that can result from neuropathic problems.
The central nervous system is like a supercomputer: a complex collection of nerves and neuron cells sending and receiving signals between the brain and spinal cord. Your peripheral nervous system branches off from the spinal cord and connects the central nervous system to all other areas of the body, including organs and muscles.
While nerves carry pain signals to the brain from various parts of the body, they can also be a source of pain themselves. Damage to nerves can result in chronic pain, varying in intensity from bothersome to almost unbearable. Nerve pain (also known as neuropathic pain) can be localised to the area of nerve damage or “referred” – felt elsewhere in the body.
Nerve pain can be caused by many factors, including trauma and medical conditions such as shingles, diabetes, and the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). In many cases, the cause of nerve pain can’t be determined, even with comprehensive testing. However, nerve pain is common among people with abnormal cholesterol levels or high blood pressure, and those who are overweight.
Symptoms of a neuropathic disorder include sensations of:
- Electric shocks
Nerve pain is often worse at night. This aggravates the problem because adequate sleep is necessary to help the body repair itself.
Don’t ignore nerve pain
If the underlying cause of peripheral neuropathy remains untreated, severe complications can arise in the body’s extremities, resulting in sores that become infected and gangrene (tissue death). The most serious cases may require amputation.
Without treatment, nerve damage may become permanent. However, some cases – such as a pinched nerve – can be difficult to treat because there’re so many possible causes.
Are these what you've been experiencing?
Don't endure the pain any longer.
Causes of a pinched nerve
A pinched nerve is caused by excessive pressure on a nerve from surrounding muscles, bones, cartilage, or tendons. This compression impairs the nerve’s function, resulting in a sharp pain or dull ache.
Other symptoms of a pinched nerve include:
- Paraesthesia (pins and needles)
- Muscle weakness
- Sensation that a foot or hand has “gone to sleep”.
Potential causes of a pinched nerve are:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Stress from repetitive activities
Treatment for a pinched nerve
If the pressure on a pinched nerve isn’t relieved, it can lead to permanent damage and chronic pain.
Because a pinched nerve tends to be related to an issue with the musculoskeletal system, chiropractic therapy can be highly effective.
The root cause of a pinched nerve typically lies in muscles, bones, or joints that shift out of position or become misaligned.
Our chiropractic pinched nerve therapy – which includes pinched nerve in back treatment, sciatic nerve pain relief, and pinched nerve in neck treatment – can restore proper alignment and position in hard and soft tissue to ease the pressure on the nerve. Addressing the problem at its root can provide substantial and immediate pain relief.
Natural nerve pain relief
According to the USA-based WebMD health information resource, in instances of unexplained (idiopathic) nerve pain, medications are often not entirely effective in chronic nerve pain treatment, typically reducing discomfort by only 50%.
Natural nerve pain relief and home remedies include:
- Nerve pain gel
- Anti-oxidant vitamin supplements
- Staying well hydrated
- Drinking juiced greens, such as spinach
- Including ginger and turmeric in your diet
- Heat and cold therapies
- Chiropractic care
Are you suffering from a pain?
Chiropractic may be just what you need to alleviate it.
Chiropractic treats nerve pain
While some medical and natural nerve pain treatment may provide a quick fix, chiropractic treatment for neuropathic pain management gets to the root of the problem. And a chiropractic adjustment can be applied to the whole spine and/or the affected area.
Our nerve pain treatment options include:
- The direct thrust method – a high-velocity, low-amplitude thrust that typically results in cavitation of a joint to release air bubbles within it.
- Myofascial release to relax contracted muscles in the affected area and ease pressure on the nerve.
Chiropractic Health and Wellness Clinic
Dr Liew’s an expert in various chiropractic techniques – such as myofascial release and the direct thrust method – that are used to provide nerve pain relief.
He’s able to offer affordable treatments because he keeps his practice small. This also enables him to provide personal care for his patients.
Dr Liew will give you free advice on exercises that can be beneficial in cases of nerve pain and explain how diet and lifestyle changes could help to address the problem.
Dr Liew attained his Doctorate of Chiropractic from the Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minnesota in the US and is regarded as a chiropractic pioneer in Singapore.
Before seeing Dr Liew, I could hardly stand or walk for 5 minutes.
Initially, I needed to visit Dr Liew 2 times a week to be treated. Now that my condition has improved, I come to his clinic once a week.
Presently, I can stand or walk for more than half an hour!
I will be bringing my wife here for treatment too.
