Helping cancer survivors fight neuropathy

aafp.org

One of the few articles I have seen on neuropathy, or numbness in the extremities due to cancer treatment (one of the prices we pay). While I have some neuropathy – mainly in the feet but also a bit in my hands – I am lucky enough that this does not impede my normal activities. Not as specific an article as I would like in terms of what to do about it (basically, just provide pain relief and rehabilitative care, without saying what kind of rehabilitative care can help or not).

I will be asking my medical team next week if there is anything that I can do through exercise or physio to help manage my neuropathy, beyond my normal activities.
