Peripheral Neuropathy Treatments

The first goal of peripheral neuropathy treatment is to manage any conditions that are causing the neuropathy, which may help resolve the symptoms. In addition, medications and treatments, including low-voltage electrical nerve stimulators, can also help relieve the painful symptoms. Your physician may also try treatments to stimulate nerves, suppress immune system activity and support the movement of weakened muscles.

Treatment options include:

  • Medications
    • Pain relievers
    • Anti-seizure medication
    • Immune reaction inhibitors
    • Anesthetics
    • Antidepressants
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Injections
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage
