Sitting Neuropathy Exercises
Get proactive with your neuropathy symptoms.
Learn Exercises to perform in the sitting posture
In the sitting position, trace the letters of the alphabet with your toes. This uses all the muscles in your lower leg and helps to increase circulation. This activity also strengthens the mind/body connection by executed the command to draw the letters.
Sitting Foot Pumps
For this exercise, start in the sitting position. Point the toe and hold the contraction for 1-2 seconds, then lift the toe toward your head and hold for 1-2 seconds. Continue to repeat for 1 minute or 50 reps total. This activity engages the calf muscle and improves circulation in the lower leg.
This exercise, also in the sitting position, extend your knee and bend your ankle toward the other leg (inversion), hold for 1-2 seconds. Then bend your ankle sideways away from your other leg (eversion). Do this activity for 1 minute or 50 repetitions. This works the small muscles in your lower leg that help you balance.

Gradual onset of numbness and tingling of hands and feet
Extreme sensitivity to touch
Decreased coordination which increases risk of falling
Sharp burning pain in the hands and feet
Progressive muscle weakness
Glove and sock feeling even though you aren’t wearing any
What causes neuropathy?
Neuropathy can occur from damage to blood vessels which reduces nutrient delivery to nerve cells causing nerve cell death such as with Diabetes.
Neuropathy can also result from nerve damage due to chemical exposure as well as autoimmune causes such as with chemotherapy.
What is the natural progression of neuropathy?
Depending on the cause of the neuropathy it is generally a progressive condition that worsens over time unless the factors causing the disease are mitigated.
What are the common treatments?
Medications for symptoms (don’t affect helps nerves regenerate).
Therapies to improve balance and activities of daily living.

What is monochromatic infrared photo energy (MIRE) therapy?
MIRE™ has been shown in numerous clinical studies to improve sensation and reduce pain from progressive peripheral neuropathy. One of the mechanisms of action is through increased nitrous oxide production which increases blood vessel dilation.
What is nitrous oxide and its effects?
Nitrous oxide is produced by almost every cell in the body. It works to relax smooth muscle which is present in blood vessels. This relaxation can increase circulation and lower blood pressure.
Dilates arteries and capillaries
Dilates veins and lymphatics
Mediator of angiogenesis and other growth factors
Reduces platelet aggregation
Why is nitrous oxide so important?
Capillaries in the extremities are the size of a single red blood cell. Nitric Oxide can help pre capillary sphincters dilate to allow for increased flow.
Underlying conditions such as diabetes and high cholesterol contribute to blood vessel lining dysfunction (endothelial) resulting in decreased blood flow. NO helps reverse this. High levels of blood glucose reduce availability of N2O.
