Make Your Neuropathy Treatment Program Work Better!

We know for a fact that self-treatment goes a long way towards helping patients recover from peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain.

Let’s face it. As a clinician, one of the most amazing things I get to do is watch patients make extraordinary recoveries from devastating illnesses and injuries.

When people have a sense of control, and responsibility over their own direction, their neuropathy treatment outcomes are far better.

Of course, some health problems are much more serious than others. Some require much more time and effort to recover. And, yes, sometimes recovery is impossible or incomplete.

Regardless, however, we do know that patients who become more involved in their own neuropathy and chronic pain treatment do far better, are far happier, and have a much better quality of life.

The reason for this is simple. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that when people have a sense of control, and responsibility over their own direction, their neuropathy treatment outcomes are far better.

So, what are some of these simple things that you could be engaging in on a regular basis? Number one, of course, is to let go of habits that are hurting your health.

These include things like cigarette-smoking, eating too much, or eating the wrong things. This is why we spend so much time in our books and social media talking about diet and lifestyle.

Number two: you can become physically active if your current condition allows. You can, if you’re recovering from surgery or an accident. Simply getting up out of bed {with assistance) more often can make a big difference at the end of the day.

Take advantage of all the tools your therapist can provide, including wheelchairs, walkers and canes.

This is also the reason that virtually every neuropathy patient that visits our clinics receives their own set of tools in a unique homecare kit.

We know for a fact that self-treatment goes a long way towards helping patients recover from peripheral neuropathy and chronic pain.

Last, but just as importantly, is to continually keep a good eye on your outlook and your attitude.

Neuropathy patients tell me all the time that it is their outlook on life and attitude to pull themselves through that has done the most to facilitate their recovery!
