Peripheral & Diabetic Neuropathy
Your nervous system is responsible for a lot, from moving your muscles to delivering messages about pain and touch. This system is complex, with several hundreds of peripheral nerves throughout the body and uncountable nerve endings.
Peripheral neuropathy is an umbrella term that encompasses a number of conditions that impact the peripheral nervous system. These conditions often present with symptoms such as weakness in the limbs, strange sensations in the arms and legs, and even pain or a burning feeling in the hands and feet.
It is estimated that up to 30% of Americans will experience peripheral neuropathy in their lifetime, making it one of the most common neurological disorders. Painful diabetic neuropathy is one of the most common side effects of diabetes as well. If you are among the millions of people battling peripheral neuropathy, you do not need to live with the pain, weakness, and discomfort. With the right treatments, you can get relief from peripheral neuropathy.
