How We Help Peripheral Neuropathy in Shawnee

An estimated 20 million people in the United States have some form of peripheral neuropathy, a condition that develops from damage to the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nerves are responsible for transmitting signals from the central nervous system to the rest of the body.

Peripheral neuropathy nerve damage most often affects feeling in the feet and hands and is particularly prevalent in people with diabetes or as the result of cancer chemotherapy treatments. Neuropathy symptoms can span a wide range of nerve-related issues including:

  • Numbness

  • Increased sensitivity to touch
  • Muscle weakness
  • Loss of balance
