Body pains are an inevitable part of our lives. And one of the most common types of body pain that people suffer from nowadays is neuropathic pain.

More commonly known as nerve pain, neuropathic pain refers to the painful sensation that occurs as an effect of a stimulus (e.g., heat, injury, and so on). It serves as a signal that tells you a part of your body is damaged.

It can be that patients overwork their bodies and push them past their limit, causing them extreme physical and psychological stress. Exposure to toxins is another cause of neuropathic pain, meaning too much alcohol or tobacco can actually contribute to neuropathy.

Simply put, the best way to avoid neuropathic pain is by living a healthy and vice-free life.

It is important to avoid overworking your body. Therefore, maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid experiencing neuropathic pains, or any type of pain in general. Regular exercise and having time for relaxation are both important to keep you in great condition. And most importantly, avoid alcohol and tobacco as much as possible.

But for those who are already suffering from intractable neuropathic pain, it is advisable for them to see a pain specialist to help them diagnose the issue, and treat it to eradicate their pain early to avoid the chronification of pain which commonly leads to major psychosocial distress including insomnia, anxiety, depression, and loss of work and life functions.

The Pain Specialist is staffed by a team of internationally trained pain specialists, dedicated nurses, consultants, and psychologists to serve patients suffering neuropathic pain, you with an integrated care system.
