I've been having neuropathy in my feet for several years, in fact from before I discovered that I was T2 diabetic. It started BEFORE my BG started rising. Probably from my back injuries. With therapy it is getting better but it is a mighty slow process.
All that said, it was giving me balance problems so I discovered this simple exercise that I now do a couple of times a day.
One simply stands on one foot and swings the other back and forth to begin with. Obviously you switch feet and do each side. At first I could only do about 10 reps without losing my balance. That got better so I started to swing my arms at the same time. Then I started holding weights in my hands (5 - 7 lbs). Now I can do about 50 reps on a side before tiring and I don't lose my balance. This can only be a good thing.
Simple, easy, can be done while watching TV or whatever.
