Nerve Pain Physical Therapy in Bergenfield, NJ

Chronic pain can be very painful and worsening. Bergenfield Physical Therapy offers non-surgical options to be effective and safe for pain relief. You will receive a personalized treatment plan that aims to bring you back to the level of activities and lifestyles you do not need to deal with. We will then show you how to eliminate the pain, correct the cause, and eliminate the symptoms.

Bergenfield Physical Therapy offers a unique, personalized, and comprehensive method that identifies the true causes of pain and treats it as such.

SYMPTONS

Nerve pain can have various symptomatic effects. You may feel numbness, sharp, tingling sensations of pain radiating to your muscles and joints. If you think that there is an altered bladder function, a medical consultation is required.

CAUSES

Nerve pain can be caused by functional or structural disorders; for example, muscle cramps, vertebral misalignment, muscle weakness, core instability and many other problems that Bergenfield Physical Therapy doctors will demonstrate to you during the initial exam. Other reasons include, among others:

  • A structural pathology like a disc prolapse, protrusion, or herniation
  • Degenerative changes such as stenosis
  • Inflammation of a nerve
  • Developmental dysfunctions
  • Developmental imbalance with muscles
  • Muscular strains
  • Ligamentous sprains
  • Poor motor control in the thoracic and lumbar spine
  • Lack of function and strength with core stability
  • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
  • Lumbar pelvic/hip dysfunction
  • Disk Bulge/Protrusion
  • Not deep breathing system activation or function
  • Trauma
  • Stress
  • Ligamentous sprains
  • Poor motor engram functionality
  • Poor posture
  • Poor foot stability and balance

Most nerve pain disorders resolve with good management.

DIAGNOSIS

At Bergenfield Physical Therapy, therapists will begin a comprehensive study that will address the origin, cause, duration, and pain to establish the best plan that will contribute to pain management. The cause of nerve pain will then be determined; however, MRI is very important and is also useful in determining the degree of pain level - if necessary, it will be done.

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS:

  • Nerve Impingement/Entrapment (Radiculopathy)
  • Degenerative Disc Disease
  • Piriformis Syndrome
  • Sciatica
  • Disk Herniation/Protrusion/Bulge
  • Lumbar Stenosis
