Neuropathy Alliance of Texas
Chances are you know someone who has neuropathy, even if you've never heard of it. About 20 million Americans suffer from neuropathy. That’s more people than Parkinson's, HIV, and Alzheimer's COMBINED. Many people, however, do not receive a timely, or even accurate, diagnosis. Founded in late 2010 by two caregivers, Neuropathy Alliance of Texas seeks to provide neuropathy patients and their caregivers the information, support, resources and hope that had not existed for its founders. Although there is currently no cure for this neurological disorder, NATX provides the tools its members need to “Live Well with Neuropathy.”
3 neuropathy support groups in Central Texas whose monthly meetings feature expert speakers from a variety of disciplines.
Tai Chi classes
Currently offered in 3 locations to help with balance, strength, proprioception, and stress relief.
Lending library, online meeting videos, network of healthcare providers, shared information in a welcoming community setting.

I started taking Tai Chi classes for my arthritis in May, and while it was fun and good exercise, I didn’t notice much difference in the first few weeks. Then one day, I noticed that my legs didn’t get tired while I had been standing for a long time. Without realizing it, I had been applying
