Diabetes affects 29 million children and adults and another 86 million have been diagnosed as pre-diabetic. The Centers for Disease Control has warned that unless something drastically changes, by the year 2050 it is likely that 1 in 3 United States adults will have diabetes.

The middle of the back and the upper neck are responsible for the nerves that deliver messages to the brain and the vital organs of the body. When there is a spinal subluxation in this area, there is an insufficient amount of messages happening which ends up affecting the pancreas, blood sugar, and overall digestion. When the pancreas begins to function improperly the digestion and insulin production are affected and once the insulin and digestion are affected, diabetes can be an ending result.


Can Chiropractic Care Cure Diabetes?

While chiropractic care cannot cure diabetes, by removing the interferences in the spine, we are helping reestablish the communication between the nervous system and the organs. Besides chiropractic care helping with our nervous system and organs to function to their best ability, by realigning the spine, chiropractic care will also better the brain and body connection and ultimately, increase the effectiveness of our immune system and hormone functions throughout the body.

The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research published a study that showed when chiropractic care was utilized as a treatment method for adult-onset diabetes, in combination with diet and exercise, the patient’s blood and glucose levels normalized and remained stable after one month of routine chiropractic care.

Other studies have shown that diabetes is directly related to the central nervous system function. Chiropractic care is beneficial for diabetes care because chiropractic is all about maintaining and restoring function to the central nervous system. These studies just prove that if diabetes is linked to how the nervous system functions then chiropractic care would be extremely beneficial to those suffering from diabetes.

Chiropractic care is effective, safe and promotes a healthy nervous system and spine free of subluxations. If you have any questions or concerns about just how much chiropractic care can help you get your life back from diabetes, contact us TODAY!
