How is Neuropathy treated?

Treating or controlling the condition can allow peripheral nerves to heal or prevent new damage. Some treatments/therapies include:

  • Medications such as pain relievers, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, immunosuppressive drugs, and topical creams and patches.
  • Hand or foot braces or orthopedic shoes
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) therapy

Other actions that may help include:

  • Don’t smoke
  • Eat healthy, well-balanced meals
  • Avoid alcohol
  • If you are diabetic, keep your blood glucose levels under control
