Exercise Is A Tool To Relieve Pain for People with Neuropathy
If you were ever told not to exercise because you have Neuropathy, you were told wrong!
As you exercise, you are increasing movement and heart-rate which are very important for people suffering with neuropathy. Physical activity can improve blood circulation, which strengthens nerve tissues by increasing the flow of oxygen.
If you do nothing, things only get worse!
Not moving is a big problem if you have neuropathy. It can result in muscles shrinking/losing strength and tightening (loss of flexibility), as well as decreased metabolism, which means less energy and high risk for gaining fat.
The Grow Young Fitness exercises will improve not only physical functioning but it also helps fight depression, diabetes, maintain ideal body weight, and improve pain tolerance.
Many studies have reported that exercise helps reduce nerve pain for patients with neuropathy. It also helps to lessen the extra symptoms that come along with having both diabetes and neuropathy.
Exercise is the answer and will do more than anything else!
This is good news for the 35 million people in the U.S. with diabetes, sixty percent of whom also suffer from peripheral neuropathy.
If you have either, you are lucky because you have Grow Young Fitness!
