Can Exercise Help Patients with Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy?
Research has consistently demonstrated that regular exercise reduces polyneuropathy symptoms in patients with type 2 diabetes. Patients with prediabetes, or metabolic syndrome, have also shown to benefit from regular exercise. Exercise has also shown to slow progression of peripheral neuropathy in these patient groups. However, little is known about the effects of exercise in patients with idiopathic polyneuropathy.
A recent study from the Foundation’s Peripheral Neuropathy Research Registry (PNRR) takes on this question… and answers it!
As part of our Living Well with PN webinar series, Dr. Shanna Patterson, MD, a neurologist at Mt. Sinai in NYC, will provide an update on what she is seeing in her practice, and will answer your questions relating to living well with peripheral neuropathy.
This webinar will take place on Wednesday, December 16, at 3 p.m. ET.
