What to Do After a Diabetic Neuropathy Diagnosis

A diabetic neuropathy diagnosis can feel scary and overwhelming. “Will I lose a leg or limb?” “How can I prevent permanent damage?” “Will I need to be on medication forever?” “Is it too late to get healthy?”

Here’s the good news: it is never too late to take control of your health! Dr. Gehnrich has been helping patients just like you take back control by addressing how the body’s physical, chemical, and emotional dimensions interact with one another. Holistic chiropractic care is a whole body approach that unlocks your body’s ability to heal and supports wellness from the inside out through natural dietary and behavioral changes.

The Holistic Chiropractic Approach to Diabetic Neuropathy

Here are 3 ways that Rockville Centre chiropractor Dr. Gehnrich puts you back in control:

  1. Dietary changes. As someone living with Type 2 diabetes, it is important that you carefully monitor your blood sugar levels. Dietary changes and a more active lifestyle can help lower your risk for health complications from diabetes and make diabetic neuropathy more manageable. Dr. Gehnrich will work closely with you to modify unhealthy eating habits and embrace a balanced diet that delivers the right balance of nutrients your body needs to thrive.

  2. Daily activity. Regular exercise is important for diabetes management. It improves blood flow and protects your heart. However, getting active if you are suffering pain from diabetic neuropathy can be difficult. Holistic chiropractic care can help by supporting a full range of motion by building coordination, flexibility, and strength. You may also benefit from chiropractic adjustments, which remove the nerve interference from physical, chemical and emotional stressors, bringing an optimal state of wellness back to the body.

  3. Whole body health. A diabetic neuropathy diagnosis can feel shocking and scary. Whole body care must address not only the physical symptoms of your diagnosis but also underlying chemical and emotional stressors. When we are in a state of stress, our bodies are flooded with cortisol. Elevated cortisol levels can make it more difficult to lose weight and sleep at night. Holistic chiropractic care including emotional release techniques, body-centered therapy, breath work techniques and stress awareness techniques can help bring balance back to your body and lower stress levels.
