  • Can I exercise with neuropathy?

    walkingNot only can you exercise with neuropathy, but we absolutely recommend that you do! Anyone wanting to alleviate neuropathy symptoms, like tingling and numbness, can benefit from a safe and regular exercise routine.

    Even simply making a point of walking every day will improve your circulation and get your blood flowing to your feet, bringing damaged nerves the healing nutrients they need. Exercise also keeps your weight in line, which reduces the pressure your feet (and nerves) endure with every step.

    The key is to not overdo it and make sure you protect yourself from harm. Wear shoes that fit well and offer plenty of cushion and support. Choose low-impact activities like swimming or yoga that put less stress on your feet. Start slow and gradually add to your workout. Visit Parker Foot & Ankle to help you develop a plan, make sure your feet stay healthy, and keep you on the right path.

    Exercising with neuropathy can help those living with nerve pain improve their quality of life. To get started, give our Houston, TX office a call at (281) 497-2850.

    Nerve cellTreatments for neuropathy have come a long way! We are now able to not only alleviate symptoms like burning, pain, tingling, and numbness, but we can actually restore function of damaged nerves as well, allowing you to return to a lifestyle free of neuropathy pain. 

    Through a unique combination of high-tech methods, we can numb or block nerves, then send those nerves electronic signals that boost the healing process as well as new cell development. Laser therapy is sometimes added to the mix, using a concentrated beam of light directed at the affected area to reduce inflammation and painful symptoms. This package of treatments has shown amazing results, not only immediately, but long-term as well.
