Managing Diabetes Through Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care is generally known for helping people who suffer from neck and back pain. Studies are increasingly showing that chiropractic care is also helping those suffering from a multitude of diseases. One such disease is diabetes and more people are becoming convinced of the benefits of seeing a chiropractor.

Diabetes is the fifth deadliest disease in the U.S. and it is a growing epidemic across the world. Approximately 8.3% of the population in the United States has been diagnosed with the disease and the number continues to grow.

With these numbers expected to rise, it's time for doctors and patients alike to take a serious look at alternate methods of treatment. Recent studies are showing that there is a connection between the spinal column and nervous system and blood sugar. These studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care given to patients with diabetes reported that the glucose levels in their blood and urine adjusted to normal levels.

The upper neck and middle back are the two areas that supply the pancreas. The pancreas is responsible for regulating blood sugar within the body through the release of insulin. If the nerve supply to them is in any way interrupted, the function of the pancreas will suffer. This will lead to the blood sugar of a patient being unbalanced which in turn could lead to diabetes.

According to recent scientific literature, interference in the spinal nerves has been acknowledged as a contributing factor in endocrine and metabolic disorders, which includes diabetes. In addition, spinal injury is named as one of the most often named causes of diabetes. When there is a problem associated with the nerve supply to the digestive organs, this will cause stress to the nerve centers in specific area of the spine.

Given the relationship between the spine and pancreatic function, spinal adjustments are a primary method of treatment for diabetes. A combination of chiropractic care, nutrition counseling, and exercise is proving to give diabetics a significant improvement in their blood sugar levels and overall health. In some cases, this type of specialized treatment has been shown to normalize and stabilize blood sugar levels which allowed for the patients to eliminate their need for insulin.

Although further study is warranted, the potential benefit to diabetic patients is evident. With the total medical cost of diabetes in the United States reaching $132 billion, it's important to note the latest research surrounding diabetes and the role of chiropractic care as an effective treatment.
