After years of trying conventional methods, techniques and treatments to treat nerve pain effectively with no luck, it may be time to try something unconventional. It is no secret that neuropathy is painful and leaves a neuropathic patient feeling frustrated and unsure if life will ever return back to normal; however, there is hope that a nerve pain treatment may actually work and provide relief. Nerve pain treatments such as prescription medications can leave a body feeling even worse and experiencing all sorts of odd unfamiliar sensations and side effects.
Choosing a different approach to nerve pain treatment frees the body from enduring daily dosages of foreign substances being digested by the body. Natural solutions to treating nerve pain can be just as effective as prescription medication if not more so seeing how most medication prescribed for neuropathy is not even designed to treat nerve pain. Natural nerve pain treatment would include holistic approaches such as daily vitamin supplements such as:
- Alpha Lipoic Acid
- Vitamin B
Neuropathy can be the result of a vitamin deficiency so when daily supplements such as these are added into one’s daily regime neuropathy symptoms begin to dissolve all on their own. Other holistic methods would include acupuncture, chiropractic manipulation, Therapy and Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS). Each of these nerve pain treatment approaches should be discussed between the neuropathy patient and his or her doctor before use.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) is the use of electrical currents to stimulate damaged nerve cells for therapeutic benefits. Electrical nerve stimulation is a popular nerve pain treatment that is designed to bring life to deadened nerve cells and help ease the pain associated with damaged nerve cells. TENS is a portable device that attaches to the skin by way of two adhesive pads called electrodes. The battery operated machine offers high frequency with intensity below motor contraction to help alleviate nerve pain. Electrical nerve stimulation may sound somewhat barbaric; however, the proof is in the studies done and the neuropathic patients living a normal life with little nerve pain.
