Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?
I also have PN and didn’t know what was causing it. It has been mostly cured with something called “The Graston Technique”. Find a chiropractor who practices this. no medications were needed!

Here's a link that explains the Graston Technique.
The Graston Technique – Inducing Microtrauma with Instruments
I tried the Graston technique with my physical therapist, but it seemed to make my nerve pain worse. It probably depends on what is causing the neuropathy in the first place. Do you know what is causing yours? Mine seems to be due to issues with my neck and spinal chord that were brought on by a steroid epidural in my neck. What part of the body did they do it to? How long did they do it? I did it about five or six times.
My neurologist told me that my Nervous System is dying; there is no cure for it. We all get old … and parts of us stop working. She couldn't tell me how long I will live as everyone has different parts of their body wearing out at different rates. 'Reality' bites sometimes.
