With Diabetes being in the top five of the deadliest disease in the United States, help for the disease is desperately needed! Here in at OC Medical, our medical professionals can help you or someone you know suffers from diabetes.
Chiropractic care can be quite helpful in the treatment and prevention of diabetes, type I and type II. Although chiropractic care alone is not a cure, it can really help to relieve many of the common diabetic symptoms. Chiropractic techniques relieve pain and discomfort throughout the body, which allows the body to start healing itself. Chiropractic techniques also reduce stress on the nervous system and the immune system, allowing those systems to function properly and restore your health.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Diabetes
There are two areas in the back where the nerves supply the pancreas. It is in the upper neck or the middle of the back. If the nerve supply of either of those areas is disturbed than the function of the pancreas will suffer. There are a number of things that could take place:
- Inability to produce enzymes to digest proteins
- Inability to produce enzymes to digest fats & carbohydrates
- Inability to produce insulin
Because of the disruption of the nerves to the pancreas and reactions taking place, blood sugar and digestion will become unbalanced which results in diabetes or hypoglycemia.
Chiropractic care uses natural methods to help with the treatment of symptoms without the use of drugs or other substances which are potentially harmful. These natural chiropractic treatments reduce the stress on the body and prevent any further damage, illness, or disease. Chiropractic care can also help to prevent diabetes by enabling an active lifestyle and healthy eating habits. In most cases, symptoms are easily preventable through a proper diet and regular exercise.
