According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than half of U.S. adults with diabetes have arthritis. This finding raises some serious questions about how diabetic patients will be able to follow their doctors’ prescription to exercise. While many are unable to exercise, those diabetics who do exercise have better control over their blood sugar and a much lower risk of heart disease complications. The challenge for diabetics and their physicians is to find ways to exercise despite painful and stiff joints. Chiropractors are experts at realigning the spine, improving posture, and promoting the flexibility needed to overcome joint stiffness and pain that inhibits exercise. Diabetics can benefit by having chiropractic care in their treatment plans. Many diabetics may not know that chiropractors care can be valuable part of their wellness protocol. If you or a loved one has diabetes, you owe it to yourself to call a chiropractor. Chiropractors can explain treatment options and potential outcomes based on specific health record.
