Notalgia paresthetica

How might notalgia paresthetica be treated?

There is no current treatment for notalgia paresthetica (NP) that is consistently effective. Evaluation and treatment of NP will often involve a multidisciplinary team of specialists. First-line therapy for NP will usually include treatment of the underlying spinal disease by orthopedic surgeons or physical therapists. Topical therapies may include steroid creams, tacrolimus, or capsaicin. Additional therapies have included botulinum toxin injections, gabapentin, physical therapy, nerve blocks, and transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS). Some have suggested that a combination of approaches, such as medication along with muscular rehabilitation exercises, may work best.
