Innovative Neuropathic Pain Relief in Richardson, TX

Neuropathic pain is a complex, chronic pain state that usually is unaccompanied by tissue injury. With neuropathic pain, the nerve fibers themselves may be damaged, dysfunctional or injured. These damaged nerve fibers send incorrect signals to other pain centers. The impact of nerve fiber injury includes a change in nerve function both at the site of injury and areas around the injury. Symptoms of neuropathic pain may include shooting and burning pain and/or tingling and numbness. These symptoms typically occur in the area that the injured nerves serve. Neuropathic pain often has no obvious cause. But some common causes of neuropathic pain include: chemotherapy; idiopathic neuropathy; AIDS neuropathy; phantom limb pain syndrome; multiple sclerosis; inguinal neuralgia; post herpetic neuralgia (shingles); and complex regional pain syndrome (RSD-CRPS).

Advanced care patients trust and doctors recommend

Dr. Arif B. Khan utilizes nonsurgical treatments to relieve pain caused by neuropathy. This is usually accomplished through medication management using prescription medications such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, antidepressants, antipsychotics, anti-seizure and narcotic analgesics. When needed, he can also do sympathetic and peripheral nerve blocks. Spinal cord stimulators used in the most resistant of cases have also been successful in relieving neuropathic pain.

We see patients monthly and carefully evaluate them for medication at that time. If another condition, such as diabetes, is involved, better management of the diabetes may alleviate the pain. Dr. Khan has been helping referring doctors provide their neuropathy patients with quality care for their pain-relief needs for over a decade. He is a diplomate of the American Board of Anesthesiology with a subspecialty board certification in pain management and has completed a fellowship in pain management, as well.

To provide the best possible care for you, Dr. Khan and his staff keep your referring physician informed throughout the treatment process. It’s everything you and your doctor need to stay up-to-date on your pain care. By working closely with your doctor as a true partner in healthcare, Dr. Khan ensures a positive experience that can produce the results you need – and the professional relationship your doctor wants.
