Neuropathic pain is chronic pain that can occur in the neck or spine that comes from a damaged or dysfunctional nerve. As a result of this damaged nerve, patients often receive incorrect signals that are perceived as pain. Patients who have injury to tissue will often feel this false sense of pain, along with pins and needles, numbness and a tingling sensation. Most often, this type of pain does not respond well to pain medications so if the pain persists, other pain management procedures will need to be evaluated.
