Peripheral Neuropathy Program

An estimated 20 million Americans experience the symptoms of neuropathy each year. The symptoms of neuropathy can be disruptive to everyday life, and include numbness, burning, tingling, pain, and weakness. These symptoms may contribute towards larger limitations, such as balance deficits, difficulty walking, or an overall decrease in quality of life. Many individuals affected by neuropathy fear that management of their symptoms is their only option, but that is not always the case.

Causes of Peripheral Neuropathy

Physical neuropathy has many causes. There’s even a form of idiopathic neuropathy, where there is no known cause. Other causes of physical neuropathy include:

  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Hereditary disorders
  • Medication
  • Chemo-induced
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Inflammatory infections
  • Poor nutrition
  • And more
