Nerve pain can be debilitating, affecting your quality of life in a variety of ways. Whether you’re dealing with chronic pain, sharp shooting sensations, or tingling and numbness, nerve pain can be difficult to manage. But thankfully, there are effective treatment options available that can help you find relief.
In this episode of the Movement as Medicine show, Dr. Ashley shares her expertise on nerve pain and provides unique insights into its treatment. She explains that nerve pain is caused by a dysfunction in the nervous system, which can lead to pain, tingling, numbness, and other uncomfortable sensations.
One of the most important things to understand about nerve pain is that it’s different from other types of pain, such as muscle pain or joint pain. Nerve pain is caused by a problem with the nerves themselves, whereas other types of pain are caused by issues with the muscles, joints, or other tissues.
To effectively treat nerve pain, Dr. Ashley takes a holistic approach, examining the relationship between the nervous system and the musculoskeletal system. By understanding how these systems interact with each other, she can develop a targeted treatment plan that addresses the underlying causes of nerve pain.
One of the key strategies that Dr. Ashley uses to treat nerve pain is clinical neurodynamics. This treatment methodology focuses on mobilizing the nervous system in order to restore its function and reduce pain. By using a series of diagnostic tests, Dr. Ashley can identify areas of dysfunction in the nervous system and develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses those issues.
Another important aspect of treating nerve pain is identifying the source of the pain. This is where diagnostic tests come in. By performing a variety of tests, such as nerve conduction studies or electromyography, Dr. Ashley can determine where the pain is coming from and develop a targeted treatment plan that addresses that specific area.
It’s also important to note that not all diagnostic tests will be positive for nerve pain. In some cases, patients may present with negative test results, even if they are experiencing nerve pain. This is why it’s important to work with an experienced healthcare professional, like Dr. Ashley, who has the expertise to accurately diagnose and treat nerve pain.
In addition to clinical neurodynamics and diagnostic testing, Dr. Ashley also uses a variety of other techniques to treat nerve pain. These may include soft tissue mobilization, joint mobilization, and corrective exercises, among others. By combining these techniques into a comprehensive treatment plan, Dr. Ashley can help patients find relief from their nerve pain and improve their overall quality of life.
If you’re dealing with nerve pain, don’t suffer in silence. There are effective treatment options available that can help you find relief. Working with an experienced healthcare professional, like Dr. Ashley, can make all the difference. By taking a holistic approach to nerve pain treatment, Dr. Ashley can help you get back to living your life to the fullest.
So if you’re ready to crack the code of nerve pain and find effective treatment options, book an appointment with Dr. Ashley today. Her expertise and insights can help you find the relief you need and get back to doing the things you love.
