PN – Peripheral Neuropathy

A common chronic condition

Peripheral neuropathy is a common disorder affecting 20 million Americans, 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 peripheral neuropathy have been identified, and symptoms can include:

  • numbness
  • tingling
  • prickling sensations
  • pain

Although peripheral neuropathy is rarely fatal, the loss of sensation can lead to issues with slow-healing foot and leg wounds.
