What is Peripheral Neuropathy?
Peripheral neuropathy is damage to the nerves that travel to your arms and legs, known as peripheral nerves. Damaged nerves don’t function properly and can lead to numbness, burning, tingling, or shooting/stabbing pain in the toes.
If you have been diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy or are experiencing any of the symptoms of peripheral neuropathy listed above, it is important to seek the help of a podiatrist. While there is no known cure for peripheral neuropathy, a podiatrist can slow the progression of the disease, to maintain foot health, decrease pain, and improve your quality of life.
