Can Neuropathy be Reversed?
Karen May, DC, CCSP, CCIP
To understand if neuropathy can be reversed, let's first look at what neuropathy is and how it is impacting your body and health.
What is neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is caused by damages to the peripheral nervous system. The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is what is sends messages to and from the spinal cord and brain, to the rest of the body. When the PNS suffers damage, it sends mixed signals to the central nervous system, causing the painful symptoms of neuropathy and disorientating your body - making balancing and walking difficult.
There are over 100 different causes of neuropathy including:
- Chemotherapy & Radiation
- Trauma Induced
- Post - surgical
- Poor Nutrition
- and so much more...
How to reverse neuropathy

Even if you have the limited mobility, difficulty balancing, and other debilitating symptoms of neuropathy - you can still exercise!
It can be as simple as standing for 30 seconds (with good posture) for every 30 minutes you are sitting.
