Pain & CMT

Many patients with CMT experience chronic pain stemming from the disease state itself, as well as pain caused by the limited treatments currently available (i.e. surgery, improper use of braces and/or AFOs). Not to mention the emotional pain of living with chronic illness, especially for children and young adults navigating living with their disease.

Managing pain can be a challenge for both the patient and the health care provider. Keeping your HCP updated with your symptoms and the efficacy of your pain management program is essential for treating chronic pain successfully.

HNF will continue to add tools to this section to help patients manage their pain and CMT.
