Your body’s nervous system is involved in every biological system including regulating your breathing, controlling your muscles, and gauging temperature. This means conditions involving your nervous system are not limited to just your nervous system, nerve conditions can affect every part of the body. With nerve damage, you may experience a wide variety of symptoms that depend on the location and type of nerves affected.

Neuropathic pain is often described as a shooting or burning pain associated with nerve damage. It may be caused by diabetes, shingles, genetic diseases, chemotherapy and nerve compression.
COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME
Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) is a chronic pain condition that often affects limbs after an injury. CRPS is one of ARI’s specialties. We understand that CRPS can be caused by damage to the peripheral and central nervous systems. CRPS is divided into two types; type 1 and type 2. The symptoms for both are the same however; and include pain, swelling of the limb, sensitivity in the affected limb, changes in skin color, temperature changes, and others.
Central sensitization is a condition of the nervous system that is associated with the development and maintenance of chronic pain. This includes Fibromyalgia, Myofascial Pain, TMJ, Interstitial Cystitis (IC), chronic pelvic pain, migraines, tension headaches, PTSD, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and Multiple Chemical Sensitivity(MCS). When central sensitization occurs, the nervous system goes through a process called wind-up and gets regulated in a persistent state of high reactivity. This persistent, or regulated, state of reactivity lowers the threshold for what causes pain and subsequently comes to maintain pain even after the initial injury has healed.
Postherpetic Neuralgia is nerve pain caused by damage inflicted by the varicella zoster virus. Generally, the neuralgia is restricted to a dermatomic area of the skin and follows an outbreak of shingles (also known as herpes zoster), in the same dermatomic area.
