Diabetes Services

Whether Type I or Type II, there are a lot of symptoms related to your diabetes that your chiropractor can help you with. Some of the common symptoms like peripheral neuropathy can benefit from chiropractic care.

As much help as we can provide, we cannot cure your condition. If you are pre-diabetic or Type II diabetic, we can help you make the changes that can bring down your blood pressure. However, chiropractors cannot prescribe medication so don’t go dismissing your endocrinologist just yet.

Studies show that chiropractic may have a bigger influence on this condition than originally thought. However, those studies are still relatively early in their lifecycle. Dr. Tiffani Fries keeps up with all the latest research to provide you with the best care.

What Can You Expect from Diabetes Services?

When you pursue treatment from a chiropractor for your diabetes, you can expect results in the areas of relieving or lessening many symptoms. Nutritional counseling, massage, chiropractic adjustment, and exercise can help alleviate many of the symptoms of this disease.

Traditional diabetes treatment involves changing your behaviors regarding nutrition, weight loss, and medication. Once diagnosed, you will need to monitor your blood sugar more than once a day. If you are Type I, you are on insulin. If you are Type II, you might not need insulin unless you fail to watch your nutrition, weight, and other symptoms.

No. Chiropractors cannot prescribe you anything. Too often Diabetes cannot be controlled by diet and exercise alone. This is especially true of those diagnosed with Type I. If you pursue chiropractic treatment when you have diabetes, you will need to make your endocrinologist know that you want to try chiropractic treatment and keep all of your appointments with them no matter how much better you might feel.
