Peripheral nerve damage
A damage to the peripheral nervous system can be detected by an electrophysiological examination (s. below). Peripheral nerve damage and its consequences include, among others:
- disc diseases,
- bottleneck and pressure injuries,
- carpal tunnel syndrome,
- ulnar groove syndrome,
- peroneal palsy,
- tarsal tunnel syndrome,
Polyneuropathy is a damage to the so-called peripheral nervous system. This is a dysfunction of the nerves in the arms and legs, the symptoms frequently starting in the feet, and less frequently also in the hands. The complaints are frequently accompanied by paresthesia in the relevant limbs. Sensory disorders or muscle weakness may occur. We use the entire electrophysiological diagnostic methods, also further laboratory, and cerebrospinal fluid tests if necessary, in order to diagnose this group of diseases.
- Neuropathic pain
Neuralgic pain is also frequently triggered by neuropathies. An individually coordinated pain therapy can mostly help the affected person to reduce the pain to a tolerable level and significantly increase the quality of life.
