Causes of Neuropathic Pain
Neuropathic pain is pain resulting from a problem with signals from your nerves. Damaged nerve fibers may send incorrect signals to other pain centers. This is a chronic condition that often worsens over time and is usually accompanied by tissue injury.
Many conditions can cause neuropathic pain as one of their side effects. These include:
Pain after chemotherapy
Phantom limb pain
How Does Laser Therapy Reduce Neuropathic Pain?
Laser therapy painlessly penetrates the skin to stimulate circulation around the nerve fibers. This increases blood flow which provides energy and oxygen to the area for healing on a cellular level.
