Peripheral Joint Pain/Dysfunction
Are You Living with Peripheral Joint Pain or Dysfunction?
Peripheral joint pain, also referred to as peripheral neuropathy, occurs when there is damage to your peripheral nerves. As stated by Mayo Clinic, “Peripheral neuropathy can result from traumatic injuries, infections, metabolic problems, inherited causes and exposure to toxins.”
If you have been living with peripheral joint pain, you are not alone. In fact, the National Institutes of Health state that “Multisite peripheral joint pain is prevalent in the population in adults 45 years and over and has a significant negative impact on several dimensions of health.”
If peripheral joint pain has been affecting your daily life, physical therapy can help you live more comfortably.

How can physical therapy help me find relief for my peripheral joint pain?
As stated by The Foundation for Peripheral Neuropathy, “Research has shown that strengthening exercises for peripheral neuropathy moderately improve muscle strength in people with PN” and “Physical therapy may be helpful in maintaining strength, mobility, and function regardless of the underlying cause of Peripheral Neuropathy (PN).”
Physical therapy can help address many of the symptoms that come with peripheral joint pain and dysfunction through targeted methods, including, but not limited to:
- Pain relief in the affected area(s)
- Improved range of motion
- Balance, stability, and gait retraining
- Strengthening exercises
- Orthotic or splint recommendations, as needed
