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.
Why Refer to a Physical Therapist?
The symptoms of neuropathy go well beyond just those regarding poor sensation and pain. Neuropathy often leads to balance problems, falls, and increased difficulty with walking. Our clinical team at IMPACT, in partnership with LumenMD, provides a comprehensive neuropathy program for individuals experiencing the debilitating symptoms associated with peripheral neuropathy. Utilizing cutting edge technology in conjunction with clinical expertise, our clinicians are able to help modulate symptoms while simultaneously improving strength, balance, and mobility. The results are simple: decreased symptoms and risk for falls, improved mobility, and increased quality of life.
