Walking/Balance Neuropathy Exercises

Get proactive with your neuropathy symptoms.

Learn exercises to perform in the walking posture to improve balance

Learn exercises to perform in the walking posture to improve balance

Toe walking

If you are a fall risk, have someone help you with this activity. This is similar to the heel raises in the standing posture but now you are taking steps which improves balance. This can be timed and you should be able to perform this for 30-60 seconds.

Slow lunge walk

This is an advanced activity and you should work your way up to this. The main idea here is to completely control the transition from the lunge position. This promotes strength of your legs but most importantly it stabilizes your weight bearing joints and improves your ‘proprioception’ or balance mechanisms, neurologically. This activity also promotes improved circulation in your legs

Additional Neuropathy Information

Chronic neuropathy pain? Discover a treatment to get better and enjoy life again!

More than 90% of people experience relief when trying Anodyne ® therapy to treat chronic pain caused by neuropathy

Did you know 70 Million People Suffer From Chronic Pain?

Burning and tingling in your feet and legs, back pain, knee pain, or other joint pain might be signs of peripheral neuropathy.

It’s a condition whereby the nerves in a person’s hands and feet are damaged, cause unpleasant symptoms and decreasing the quality of one’s life.

Don’t Ignore the Pain

Common neuropathy symptoms:

^

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.

ALTERNATIVE THERAPY FOR SYMPTOMS

MIRE ™ therapy. A solution that provides drug-free pain relief in less than a week!

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.

 

N2O directly: mediates the analgesic affect of morphine. N2O indirectly: reduces hypoxia and ischemia (poor oxygen delivery), delivers nutrients to nerves, reduces inflammation and swelling around nerves.

What to expect from treatment

N

Patients typically feel a soothing warmth.

N

It is not uncommon to feel results after the first session – however most report relief after 3-6 treatments.

N

You may feel some tingling or minor pain at first as circulation improves.

How long do the effects last?

Chronic Patients:

Patients with diabetes, PVD, high cholesterol or high blood pressure will require lifetime use – as theses underlying conditions cause circulation to be poor in the extremities. Overuse injuries will continue to re-occur unless the patient modifies their activities

Acute Injuries/Wounds:

Typically do not require lifetime use – clinical treatments are sufficient to resolve most issues

Chemotherapy Patients:

May require ongoing Anodyne® treatments depending on the severity of damage, and the length of condition.
