Peripheral neuropathy pain affects millions yet if you have ever gone to a store and tried to purchase specially adapted shoes, you will find it’s not as straightforward as you’d have liked it to be.
Peripheral neuropathy is a complex condition – or series of conditions – where the peripheral nerves namely your feet and hands, have lost feeling or are lacking sensory outputs due to damage around the nerve.
Imagine if you were to walk on golden sands on a very hot day and you just did not sense any of the usual pain or burning; you might think that person is fortunate enough to go through that without feeling the pain or sensation. And you would be wrong.
If you cannot sense the danger to your feet you are risking damage or severe health issues as normal pain and sensations act as a kind of warning trigger. The condition may start with numbness or tingling in the feet or toes and peripheral neuropathy pain can be virulent in either foot or both. Sufferers can also have the same peripheral neuropathy pain in their hands as the extremities are often the first parts of the body to suffer.
Living a normal life as possible is what most peripheral neuropathy sufferers strive to achieve. Rather than allowing the condition to overwhelm and envelop their lives, many are trying hard to do something about it. Changes in diet and exercising more are just starters in dealing with the condition.
Buying a decent pair of shoes for peripheral neuropathy patients may not be easy but you will be surprised at the sheer volume of shoemakers who sell shoes solely for those with the condition of PN. Why not consider buying shoes specially adapted for diabetic sufferers? Diabetic shoes have custom orthotic inserts that will help prevent injury to your feet that you no longer can feel.
The shoes are level to prevent an imbalanced stride. Some of the top brands are selling shoes with extra space for any inserts and shoes with padded collars and tongues for extra comfort and sensation. Brand name shoe manufacturers like Propet, Grasshoper, Hush Puppies and DiaResc are all in the business of creating and selling a pair of shoes for the diabetic, which would be similarly useful for a PN sufferer.
