If you are new to the world of Chiropractic treatment and aren’t sure what the Chiropractors at AICA College Park do beyond treating back pain, you may be surprised to know that our treatment solutions can help people with type 2 diabetes.
Chiropractic Care for Type 2 Diabetes
Although Chiropractic care can not replace the kind of support diabetic patients receive from their primary physicians, it can complement their efforts in ways that significantly reduce your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
Adult type 2 diabetics who maintain a healthy diet and exercise on a weekly basis can stabilize their glucose levels by incorporating spinal adjustments into their routine.
According to the Journal of Pediatric, Maternal & Family Health, patients who are treated with 24 upper cervical manipulations over the course of two months can reduce their Hemoglobin levels, as well as their daily insulin shots.
The reason for this is because Chiropractic Adjustments can improve the connections within your nervous system, allowing for better hormone function.
Three Ways Chiropractic Care Can Treat Type 2 Diabetes
There are three different ways the Chiropractors at AICA College Park can help type 2 diabetics manage their condition:
Nerve Flow Optimization
