Peripheral neuropathy is a condition characterized by nerve damage that causes weakness, numbness, and pain, usually in the hands and feet. The condition may arise due to traumatic injury, infection, metabolic problems, exposure to toxins, or diabetes. Physical therapy is a very effective way to relieve pain associated with peripheral neuropathy while also rebuilding the muscle strength that is frequently lost due to the condition. At Taylor Rehab, our physical therapists address peripheral neuropathy using a variety of approaches, including range of motion exercises, strengthening exercises, balance training, and sometimes splinting or bracing. As always, we will develop a plan of care customized for each individual patient’s needs.
