Cold, wet weather this time of year puts Middle Tennesseans at risk for falls. Those suffering from nerve damage or neuropathy may be at higher risk for injuries from falls.
Dr. Christopher Richards, with Advanced Medical of Nashville, says neuropathy normally starts out with some tingling and burning, then it turns into numbness. People with nerve damage will loose feeling in their feet, making them prone to falling.
The first 20 callers to Advanced Medical at 615-645-3126, will get a free neuropathy consultation.
