What is nerve pain?

Nerve pain, or neuralgia, is a sharp pain that follows the path of a nerve. Patients with nerve pain may also experience increased skin sensitivity along the nerve, as well as weakness in the muscles served by the affected nerve.

What causes nerve pain?

Nerve pain usually occurs when a nerve becomes damaged or irritated. In many cases, this condition occurs because a nearby bone, ligaments, or another structure is putting pressure on the nerve. Nerve pain may also occur because of pressure from a herniated disc or damage from trauma.

How does Innovative Medical Center diagnose nerve pain?

The doctors at Innovative Medical Center can usually diagnose nerve pain based on the patient’s symptoms and a physical examination. When the doctor suspects nerve pain, he/she may also order an imaging test to identify the cause of the pain.

What treatments are available?

Innovative Medical Center offers several treatment options for patients with nerve pain, including trigger point injection, corrective exercises, massage therapy, spinal manipulation, and more. In most cases, the doctors at Innovative Medical Center will prescribe a combination of treatments designed to meet the patient’s specific needs.

Trigger point injections introduce special medications into areas where nerve pain is intense, which can alleviate the patient’s symptoms. Corrective exercises work by strengthening weak areas in the body and helping patients correct bad habits that may be exacerbating their condition. Massage therapy can improve nerve pain by relaxing tense muscles that may be contributing to nerve irritation or compression. Massage also encourages blood flow to the area, which promotes healing of damaged tissues.

In some cases, patients may experience nerve pain because of subluxation, or misaligned vertebrae. Spinal manipulation can resolve issues with subluxation, which can improve nerve pain.

How effective is Innovative Medical Center’s nerve pain treatment?

The doctors at Innovative Medical Center customize nerve pain treatments based on the location of the patient’s pain, the patient’s specific symptoms, and other factors. Many patients report that their symptoms improve after only 1 treatment session. However, most patients won’t achieve optimum results until they have attended multiple sessions.

Great staff! Love the results. Went in for my knee, and after the first injection, I started walking without a limp and with no pain.

I have been going here for 10 years. Dr roland helped my daughter have a higher quality of life. Every physical activity she does is due to him seeing what her drs refused to see. She had a seizure due to medication she was taking for chronic constipation. Dr Roland noticed she was off a bit and offered to take a look at her back. She was completely out of alignment. He helped her not have the struggles and she now is able to have full range of movement. The office staff is beyond friendly I have always felt welcome here.

I have had an amazing experience with the staff at IMC. I did stem cell replacement with our non verbal severely autistic son and the results were amazing for our family. It was a joy to go through this journey with them and I continue to take my children there and they have helped more then some MD's with treatments. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

What can I say about IMC? Let me start off by saying if every medical office cared about their patients the way these people do, we would have no need for doctors! They are about healing you. It’s as if they’re treating their own mother. The love and concern that they have for their patients is unbelievable! I went in there barely able to move. It took me literally about 5 minutes to get out of a chair, with the help of cane. I cannot believe how far I’ve come! Before my treatment was over I was actually able to take my daughter to an amusement park where I was on my feet walking all day! That ment so much to me! To be able to give my daughter something she deserves. Instead of being cooped up in the house because her dad was unable to leave the house because he was in too much pain. They not only brought hope back into my life. But they made it possible for my daughter to experience life, as she should. I’d give these people the world if I could! Because that’s what they gave to my daughter! Thank you IMC!
