Nerve pain is a common condition that can range from frustrating or annoying to debilitating. If you are struggling with nerve pain, Coast Spine and Sports Medicine can help with tailored treatment options for men and women in Los Angeles and Orange County, CA.
What Is Nerve Pain Treatment?
There are two main types of pain: nerve pain or neuropathic pain and nociceptive pain, which happens when stimuli that may be harmful is detected by the body’s nociceptors. Unlike nociceptive pain, which is the result of physical injury or potential damage to the body, neuropathic pain happens when the nerves or nervous system are damaged or do not work correctly due to some type of disease or injury. Nerve pain isn’t a response to any outside stimuli.
Nerve pain can feel like a shock of electricity, pinpricks of pain, or a burning sensation.

What Nerve Pain Treatment Options Do You Offer in Los Angeles?
At Coast Spine and Sports Medicine, we develop tailored treatment plans to manage your pain and address the underlying cause. If your nerve pain is caused by a treatable condition such as diabetes, treatment for the condition will be a priority. Nerve pain, however, typically requires its own treatment.
The best treatment options for nerve pain will depend on the cause and type of pain you experience. We may begin with nerve testing which helps evaluate abnormal nerve conditions. Options to manage your pain may include:
- Nerve blocks to temporarily stop pain signals to the brain
- PRP injections if you have suffered an injury to a nerve or nerves
- Radiofrequency nerve ablation for longer-term disruption of pain signals
- Dorsal column spinal cord stimulator, a procedure that implants an electrode that sends signals to specific areas of the spinal cord to intercept pain signals
What Sciatica Nerve Pain Treatment Options Do You Offer?
Sciatica is one of the most common forms of nerve pain and it happens when the sciatic nerve is compressed. Coast Spine and Sports Medicine offers a range of treatment options to manage sciatica pain. Treatment may begin with medications and physical therapy before progressing to steroid injections and, in severe cases, surgery to relieve pressure on the compressed nerve.
