People with diabetes commonly suffer from musculoskeletal disorders. These musculoskeletal conditions may be helped with chiropractic care.
According to a new paper published in the European Journal of Rheumatology, October 2018 patients with diabetes mellitus have an elevated risk for a number of musculoskeletal conditions including: limited joint mobility syndrome, frozen shoulder/adhesive capsulitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, gouty arthritis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis.
Although chiropractors do not treat diabetes, they commonly treat the musculoskeletal disorders noted above. Doctors of chiropractic, in conjunction with a patient’s medical provider, may be considered for consultation as a safe, non-pharmaceutical, nonsurgical, cost-effective method to treat these extremely common, painful and disabling musculoskeletal disorders.
