|Upon injury of the nerves, centrally or peripherally, neuropathic pain (NP) occurs. NP is a type of chronic pain a significant number of patients suffer from. Diagnosis of NP is usually presented as tingling, shooting, or burning sensation. Patients describe this pain agonizing and affecting their quality of life. Although poorly understood this syndrome accompanies a broad range of chronic malignancies. Therefore, it is essential to search for more evidence for precise diagnosis and optimum treatment. The purpose of this work is to summarize the results related to NP in terms of types, etiology, diagnosis, and current and future treatment prospective. Due to insufficient evidence, the current treatment is still under expectation. Phytotherapies provide low-risk options in NP patients and might be the future of NP management. Recently, neuropathic patients are increasingly relying on phytotherapy as a bright source of healthcare. Moreover, research on combination therapies involving pharmacotherapy with phytotherapy looks very promising. The aim of the combination therapy is to minimize toxicities while optimizing therapeutic effects for neuropathic patients to have better quality of life. Hence, health-care professionals should be routinely updated with NP phytotherapy, keeping in mind the risk to benefit profile of using natural plants in the treatment of neuropathic pain.|
