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.”

Currently offered in 3 locations to help with balance, strength, proprioception, and stress relief.
