Abstract

Some neurological disorders that cannot be managed with medication can alternatively be directly treated either at the sensory and/or motor nerve(s). In particular, chronic pain and/or muscle spasticity are a couple types of symptoms that can potentially be treated at the associated nerve. Various chemicals and medical devices are currently being employed in the clinic to treat peripheral nerves. Treatment of sensory nerves is typically used to attenuate chronic pain symptoms, while motor nerves are targeted for spasticity symptoms. A majority of treatment methods currently used in the field involve nerve injury and denervation of the target tissue through different mechanisms of action. Depending on the type and severity of the treatment, the nerve may or may not fully regenerate to a normal state. This article will review the various types of clinical methods used to treat neurological disorders and discuss the possible outcomes of nerve regeneration.
