Neuropathy

 What is Neuropathy?

Neuropathy is a condition that affects body’s nerves and is usually the result of disease or nerve damage. This disease is commonly found in adults over the age of 55. When the nerves become damaged, sensation and movement of the body are altered, causing numbness, tingling, pain and discomfort. Many people seek out professional care when loss of function begins to inhibit them from accomplishing daily tasks and activities.

How Can Physical Therapy Help?

Physical therapy can play a vital role for those who suffer with neuropathy. Your physical therapist will work with you to establish a custom treatment plan to reduce your pain and restore function. First, they will determine where your function has been limited and then they will provide you with recommendations and exercises to help prevent further limitations.

Maintaining an active lifestyle is very important in order to prevent neuropathy. Your therapist will explain how moderate-intensity exercises can assist you on the road to recovery and help prevent further injury to your nerves.
