“Is there anything I can do for my neuropathy?”

This is a question we are asked nearly every day at the Calgary Neuropathy Association.  We want you to know that YES, there is!

CNA wants to help you learn to manage your neuropathy and chronic pain.

When you live with chronic pain or have unanswered neuropathy concerns, one of the best things is to find a group of understanding people who relate to your condition; and, to find information on supports, treatments, or changes you can make to help you manage neuropathy and the symptoms.

The Calgary Neuropathy Association is an educational support group and a place to connect. We provide opportunities to learn about the condition and so you can take an active role in its management.

 

Meet us in person: Come, talk, and ask questions. Be listened to.

We strive to have informative guest speakers with varied interests related to awareness,

understanding, treatment, self-management, and research.  We provide the opportunity for you to meet others living with neuropathy; many of whom have learned to manage and cope.

We understand Neuropathy also impacts our friends and family. We encourage them to attend as well.  Our support group is a place of friendly talk and comfort, as well as a place to receive information and education for everyone interested.

New: On-line membership includes videos of our guest speakers.

The Calgary Neuropathy Association is ready to take the next step, making our fabulous guest speaker presentations available to on-line members.  Join CNA On-line at no cost and enjoy the videos and other support information from last season.
