Diabetic peripheral neuropathy refers to a condition where the sensitivity of nerves to pain, temperature, and pressure is dulled, particularly in the legs and feet. The presence of peripheral neuropathic pain makes the patient’s medical care more complicated and reduces the patient’s quality of care.

Douleur Neuropathique 4 scale Assessment Tool was used to collect the data. The results revealed that the foot reflexology is effective on peripheral neuropathic pain among diabetes patients.
