Program Description

There are dozens of reasons why nerves become damaged, causing a pins-and-needles sensation, numbness, pain and/or weakness. Neuropathy can result from diabetes, overuse injuries, an immune disorder and other causes. At Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, Illinois, we tailor treatment to fit each patient's needs.


Services Provided

Rush neuromuscular physicians have expertise in evaluating and managing various neuropathies including, but not limited to:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyradiculoneuropathy (CIDP)
  • Diabetic polyneuropathy
  • Guillain-Barre syndrome
  • Mononeuropathy multiplex
  • Multifocal motor neuropathy
  • Plexopathy
    • Brachial
    • Lumbar
  • Ulnar neuropathy

After a complete evaluation, including electrodiagnostic testing, treatment plans are individually tailored to the patient's needs. A multimodality approach (including pain medications, immunomodulatory therapy, bracing, occupational/physical therapy) is used to target symptoms and the underlying cause of the neuropathy to optimize function and quality of life.


Clinical Team

Our respected, board certified neuromuscular physicians work side-by-side with nurses who are trained to help patients with neuromuscular diseases. The Magnet-designated nursing team has been nationally recognized for their excellence.
