Buy the peripheral neuropathy worksheetPeripheral neuropathy is basically when the peripheral nerves become damaged. One of the most common symptoms is a numb and tingly “pins and needles” feeling in the hands and/or feet. Here are some stretches & exercises that can help provide relief in the legs.

Peripheral neuropathy can be caused by a trauma or disease, diabetes, medications, chemotherapy, and many other things. Having good flexibility and strength in the feet and legs can help provide relief from peripheral neuropathy.

The first exercises will be in a seated position, but they can also be done lying down. Ankle pumps and ankle circles are great exercises to get the foot and ankle warmed up as well as improve the circulation to the area.

Then seated heel/toe raises will add some impact, but not too much that might cause increased pain.

Finally, some stretches with a strap like calf and hamstring stretches are great to help improve flexibility.
