In brief: No
There are no standard treatments for hereditary neuropathies.
Treatment is mainly symptomatic and supportive. Medical treatment includes physical therapy and if needed, pain medication. Orthopedic surgery may be needed to correct severe foot or other skeletal deformities. Bracing may also be used to improve mobility.

While many doctors advise that there is no "cure" for the most common hereditary neuropathy-Charcot Marie Tooth disease- that should not be taken as to understand there are no effective treatments, and living a full and enjoyable life is certainly possible. However, this may require picking and choosing from among various medical, health, and fitness practitioners.
