    Peripheral Neuropathy is one of the most common chronic diseases in the U.S…over 20 million Americans have it. Peripheral neuropathy or “nerve damage” disrupts the body’s ability to communicate with its muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs.  Peripheral neuropathy can be compared to the body’s electrical wiring system breaking down, causing numbness, pain, weakness and poor coordination.

    Did you know that "neuropathy" is frequently misspelled by people searching for information about causes, symptoms and pain treatment online?  It's true!  Some of the most common misspellings we frequently see are neuropothy, nueropothy, neurophy, neuopathy, nuropathy, neurapathy, neurothopy, nueropothy, nuropothy, neoropathy, and neuropathy.
