Video: What is Neuralgia?

Neuralgia is a painful condition caused by damage to the peripheral nervous system. Neuralgia may result in acute pain in a specific area of the body. This pain can range from a steady burning to a pricking or electric shock sensation. Pain Management treatments range from soft tissue therapy and spinal manipulation, to pain relief medications, antidepressants and anticonvulsants, to even electrode therapy.
