Peripheral Neuropathy

Any interference or damage to the nerves that control the arm can cause peripheral neuropathy. This condition affects peripheral nerves, usually in appendages, resulting in changes in sensation and function, as well as chronic pain. Our interventional pain specialists at Ospina Medical offer innovative treatment options for peripheral neuropathy affecting the arm, hands and fingers at our clinic in Midtown Manhattan.

Symptoms of Arm or Hand Neuropathy

When the peripheral nerves that travel from the spinal cord to your arm and hand are damaged or irritated, you can experience peripheral neuropathy. This can occur suddenly after an injury, but it is more commonly caused due to continual irritation to the nerves. Symptoms can be constant or intermittent and include:

  • Tingling or prickling in the hand or fingers
  • Sensation of a “glove” on a hand or fingers
  • Shooting or sharp pains in the arm or hands
  • Intense sensitivity in the arm or hand
  • Burning or freezing pain
  • Twitching or muscle cramping
