The neuro-rehabilitation program is intended for diabetic patients with peripheral neuropathy. Through specific exercises, stimulation of the nerves and foot care education, many patients regain sensitivity in their feet, pain decreases, and cramping reduces so as to improve their way of walking. This program has a direct impact on reducing the risk factors for amputation.

People suffering from neuropathy can’t do simple daily activities. But with constant treatments, some patients regained certain abilities. This innovative program inspires me to go beyond and to use my knowledge and skills to help more people suffering from neuropathy.
