Treatment options for nerve impairments

People with nerve impairments nowadays can count on multiple options of treatment. These can help control typical symptoms of the disease and maintain or improve nerve health and quality of life.

If you suffer from peripheral neuropathy, it’s important that every treatment is chosen with your doctor’s advice. Your doctor is able to evaluate your medical history, the kind of neuropathy and the grade of severity. He will be then able to assess the best therapy for you.


Some of the available treatment options that your doctor could suggest to you may include both pharmacological (treatment with medicinal products) and non-pharmacological options (treatment with other options aside from medicinal products).

Among the pharmacological options there are treatments defined in the official guidelines and other treatments not included in the guidelines but still commonly used for peripheral neuropathy in the clinical practice.

Some of the possible pharmacological therapies


Anticonvulsants and antidepressants

Neurotropic B vitamins

Topical capsaicin patch

Alpha-lipoic acid




Possible non-pharmacological treatments


Physical therapy


Electromagnetic fields



(cognitive-behavioral therapy, hypnosis, operant-behavioural therapy)

Reducing alcohol intake, blood sugar levels or correcting B vitamin deficiencies are just some of the possible life adjustments you can take into consideration to prevent nerve impairments or while you are on therapy.

The combination of neurotropic B vitamins can be useful for both preventing and treating neuropathy. They help to provide relief from neuropathy symptoms and can effectively contribute to successful therapy, correcting a deficiency but also enhancing nerve health.


Before starting any kind of therapy, talk to your doctor about the likely benefits and potential adverse effects of each option. The doctor will find out what kind of medications is right for you. Be sure to follow your doctor’s instructions when taking medicines and call your doctor if you have any side effects.
