I have peripheral Neuropathy caused by being poisoned with Levaquin. First problem that cropped up was Psoriasis abou 3 months after surgery where I was given Levaquin IV to prevent infection. The Psoriatic Arthritis. Now Peripheral Neuropathy. I refuse to give up or give in to any of it. It isn't in my DNA. I am 76 yrs old and have remained active however I have a problem with the owners and managers of our mobile home park here in North Fort Myers FL I have found that water Aerobics does wonders for my strength and balance. However we bought a mobile a year ago in this park and I requested permission to put up an above ground pool for water therapy. I gave them a note from my Dr that it was necessary for my physical disability neuropathy. I got a letter from their attorney that was the most condescending demeaning letter I have ever seen in my life. He informed me that he has neuropathy and couldn't imagine any type of water therapy that would help my condition. The guy is not a Dr he is an attorney who obviously thought he knew more than my neurologist who is one of the tops in his field in the eastern U.S.

Anyway my question for anyone here is do you have good luck with water therapy or water aerobics.
Than you for your answers.

Hello @gonefishin2743 — Welcome to Connect. There is another discussion that you might want to view to meet other members disussing water exercises for neuropathy.

Have you thought about checking around the area for a mobile home park that allows an above ground pool or is that not an option?
