Peripheral Neuropathy Treatment in Annapolis, MD
Our neuropathy treatment programs are designed to help patients who are suffering from numbness, tingling and/or burning in their arms or legs.
We often hear from patients that they "feel abandoned" and have no explanation as to why they have nerve pain or that they were told, "You will just have to live with this pain."
Whether you don't know why you have nerve pain or you have undergone chemotherapy, have diabetes, or suffered a trauma, we have pain solutions for you. We offer more than just your typical nerve pain medications that are so often prescribed and sadly, don't typically take away the pain completely. Let us help you find the cause of your neuropathy and correct it.
What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is a general term for a series of disorders resulting from damage to the body’s peripheral nervous system. This nervous system sends signals from the brain and spinal cord to the rest of the body. Damage to the peripheral nervous system can result in loss of sensation, pain or inability to control muscles.

The symptoms of peripheral neuropathy vary on the type you have and what part of the body is affected. Symptoms can range from tingling or numbness to more serious effects like burning pain or paralysis. Some common symptoms include:
Loss of balance or coordination
