The connection between blood sugar and the spine
The link between a successful diabetes treatment and chiropractic care has earned the attention nationwide as new research provides a clear parallel between the two. This new research shows that chiropractic treatments may be an adequate addition to the medical treatments for helping control blood sugar levels in diabetics.
Diabetes is at an all-time high, particularly Type 2 Diabetes, and is expected to increase over the next few decades. This increase is due to higher levels of unhealthy diets, obesity and inactive lifestyles.
Those with Type 2 diabetes can often control their blood sugar levels through healthy diets and daily exercise. However, many individuals use diabetic medications, such as insulin to help with their blood sugar levels. Adding chiropractic care to your treatment could cut down the risk of damage to the body’s organs and systems from being exposed to high blood glucose levels for long periods of time.
Chiropractic treatments can help diabetics if problems in the spine are affecting the blood flow to the pancreas. In order to balance proper levels of glucose in the blood, the pancreas discharges insulin into the body. If the pancreas is not receiving enough oxygen and nutrients through proper blood circulation, this might affect the insulin production. Stimulating the spine to help correct the proper blood circulation could have a positive impact on the body to release insulin naturally.
Another way chiropractic treatment can help those who suffer from diabetes is by alleviating pressed nerves on the spine to allow for a reestablished connection between the brain and the systems that are involved in the endocrine system and a body’s metabolism. The body can work to heal itself when the nervous system is working properly.
