This innovative therapeutic strategy seeks to alleviate neuropathic pain and improve quality of life in an effective and safe manner.
What is neuropathic pain?
Neuropathic pain is a type of chronic pain that results from dysfunction or damage to the nervous system. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, such as diabetes, shingles, traumatic nerve injuries or degenerative diseases. Neuropathic pain often manifests as a burning, tingling, numbness or stabbing sensation, and can be difficult to treat with conventional therapies.
Pharmacological treatment of neuropathic pain focuses on relieving pain and improving quality of life. Some of the medications that may be used include analgesics, antidepressants, anticonvulsants and, in specific cases, opioids. The choice of medication will depend on the individual patient’s assessment and the underlying cause of the neuropathic pain.
Botulinum toxin infiltration
Botulinum toxin infiltration is a novel and effective treatment for neuropathic pain. Botulinum toxin, also known as Botox, works by blocking the release of neurotransmitters responsible for the sensation of pain. This treatment can alleviate neuropathic pain and improve quality of life, especially in patients who have not obtained relief with conventional pharmacological therapies.
Benefits of combined treatment
Pain relief: Pharmacologic therapy and botulinum toxin infiltration can effectively relieve neuropathic pain.
Improved quality of life: These treatments can help improve the quality of life of patients, allowing them to resume their daily activities.
Personalization of treatment: The choice of medication and the use of botulinum toxin are tailored to the specific needs of each patient, ensuring an individualized therapeutic approach.
Alternative to invasive treatments: Drug therapy and botulinum toxin infiltration may be an effective option before considering more invasive treatments, such as surgery.
