Pain Free Holiday Activities
It’s December! The temperature is falling, the christmas lights are on the house, the trees are up and the stockings are hung. Joy and happiness fill homes and the anticipation of presents to be open sit wrapped beautifully below the tree. This month has exciting opportunities to be surrounded by family and friends. However, if you deal with pain from the symptoms of neuropathy, the precious times with family and friends can be far in between.
Not really sure if you are dealing with symptoms related to neuropathy?
Basic symptoms of neuropathy include: tingling and numbness of hands and feet, stabbing and jabbing pain, extreme sensitivity to touch, burning sensations, and muscle weakness.
This holiday season, here at Neuropathy Treatment Clinic of Oklahoma, we want to make sure that you get all the help you need, in becoming pain free from neuropathy. There is no need to wait until the new year when you can get started right now. By calling one of our offices, we will get you set up for a consultation with one of our medical staff. During your consultation, we will go over current symptoms that you are experiencing and look over past medical records to make sure that our unique medical treatment is right for you.
With this month in full swing, we want to make sure that you have everything you need to enjoy time with your precious family and especially those grandkids. We have provided below a holiday activities list.
