: A total of 44 participants, comprising 26 males and 18 females aged between 40 to 70 years, were included in the study. These participants had MNSI scores ranging from >2 to 13, indicating diagnosed or undiagnosed cases of Diabetic Peripheral Neuropathy (DPN). They were randomly assigned to two groups: Group 1 received a Structured Exercise Program (SEP) while Group 2 received a Non-Structured Exercise Program (NSEP), both administered three days a week for four consecutive weeks. Outcome measures consisted of the MNSI, Numeric Pain Rating Scale (NPRS), Neuropathy- and foot-ulcer specific quality of life instrument (NeuroQoL), Semmes Weinstein Monofilament (SWM), and Biothesiometer. Evaluations were conducted at two time points: pre-intervention (day 1) and post-intervention (day 28).
