UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND MEDICAL CENTER: Researchers at University of Maryland School of Medicine are testing ultrasound to treat neuropathic pain
University of Maryland Medical Center issued the following announcement on April 22.
An estimated 100 million Americans suffer from neuropathic pain, a type of chronic pain caused by nerve damage or a malfunctioning nervous system that carries pain signals to the brain. The pain is not precipitated by a physical event such as accidentally hitting your thumb with a hammer. It can be a result of a number of things, including injury, infection, metabolic disease or a traumatic event. People often describe neuropathic pain as burning, tingling, pins and needles, and shooting or stabbing pain. https://umm.gd/2KFgy10
