A common chronic condition

Peripheral neuropathy is a common disorder affecting 20 million Americans1, that occurs when there is damage to the bodily system that transmits information between the brain and every other part of the body.

Over 100 different types of this disease have been identified, and symptoms can include:

  • numbness
  • tingling
  • prickling sensations
  • pain

The loss of sensation associated with this chronic condition can lead to issues with slow-healing foot and leg wounds.
