Effective Solutions for Neuropathy
Tingling, burning, icy-hot pain, or the numbing of hands and feet – the typical symptoms of neuropathy can be distressing and disruptive to a person’s life.
The double-board certified and fellowship-trained physicians at MAPS are experienced in treating chronic neuropathic pain and finding a solution that works for the patient. Our practice focuses on achieving long-term results with an emphasis on comprehensive treatment plans.

Neuropathy: Causes and Symptoms
While pain usually occurs when a nerve relays a pain signal following an injury or damage somewhere in the body, neuropathy works differently. Neuropathic pain—also called nerve pain—results from damage to the nerves themselves.
Neuropathy can be caused by a number of factors such including:
Compression of a Nerve
Cancer Treatment (chemotherapy, radiation therapy)
Excessive Alcohol Use
Exposure to Drugs or Other Toxins
The Leaders in Comprehensive Neuropathy Treatment
MAPS is Chicago’s leaders in conservative treatment for chronic pain. Each of our patients undergoes a comprehensive exam so that our physicians can note their symptoms and medical history prior to determining an appropriate treatment plan. Many treatments may include or be a combination of responsible medication management, physical therapy, acupuncture, an injection-based protocol, or other innovative treatments:
Ketamine, an anesthesia drug, is administered at a very low dose to give relief to neuropathic pain, as well as phantom limb pain and other complex pain syndromes. Ketamine infusion therapy has been used to “reset” the nerve pathways, allowing for significant pain reduction much more quickly than other traditional treatment options for peripheral neuropathy.
Medication Management and Supplements
Neuropathic pain is unresponsive to opioids and managed medications, but other drugs can work for patients. Your physician may recommend an anti-inflammatory, anti-seizure, or anti-depressant medication, in addition to herbs and dietary supplements to address any vitamin or nutrient deficiencies that could be causing neuropathic pain.
Many of our patients find positive results when they couple their neuropathy treatment with a physical therapy program. Our physicians work with primary care physicians as well as experienced, qualified physical therapists to ensure our patients benefit from a comprehensive treatment plan.
