Neuropathic pain can either be caused by disease or by direct damage to the nerve. Some examples of diseases that cause nerve damage are diabetes, postherpetic neuralgia, alcoholism and multiple sclerosis. Conditions that are caused by direct damage to nerves include carpal tunnel syndrome, sciatica, postoperative hernia repair syndrome, and thoracic outlet syndrome among others. In this chapter, neurogenic thoracic outlet syndrome (NTOS) will be discussed to exemplify how to evaluate and treat neuropathic pain states using an integrative approach.
