One of the most common types of nerve and muscle pain is low back pain, which can be caused by muscle strains or sprains, herniated discs, or poor posture.

 

Muscle pain in your lower back can also be attributed to overuse, long periods of sitting like at a desk job, or conditions like sciatica, where the sciatic nerve, which runs down the back of the leg, becomes compressed or irritated.

Another source of ongoing nerve and muscle pain is fibromyalgia, a chronic disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain and tenderness. While we don’t know its exact cause, factors like genetics, infections, and physical or emotional trauma may contribute to its development. Fibromyalgia often leads to widespread muscle pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and cognitive difficulties. The pain associated with this condition can be severe and debilitating, significantly impacting quality of life.

Nerve pain known as neuropathic pain is a common type of discomfort caused by damage or dysfunction in the nervous system. Conditions like diabetic neuropathy, post-herpetic neuralgia (resulting from shingles), or carpal tunnel syndrome can all lead to nerve pain.

Procedures to Treat Nerve and Muscle Pain

Our expert team offers a range of advanced treatments and procedures tailored to you. We're here to provide solutions and help you find comfort and relief.

  • EMG / Nerve Conjunction Testing

    Electrodiagnostic Nerve Conduction Study (EMG/EDX) is a test we use to evaluate the function and health of peripheral nerves. During the procedure, small electrical impulses are applied to specific nerves, and the resulting electrical signals or responses are measured.

  • Small Fiber Biopsy

    A small fiber biopsy is diagnostic procedure where small samples of skin are analyzed to assess for density of the smallest nerves in the skin. It may be used in diagnosis of neuropathy when other methods have been inconclusive.
