If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetic neuropathy, it’s natural to worry about what this diagnosis means for your future health. You may be wondering if you will need to rely on medication to manage this condition or if permanent damage to your feet or legs will occur. Our chiropractor John Gehnrich understands your concerns and is here to help.
Dr. Gehnrich follows a holistic approach that considers how the body’s physical, chemical, and emotional dimensions interact with each other. This natural, non-invasive approach is a safe, effective option for addressing diabetic neuropathy, protecting your health, and enhancing your quality of life.
Understanding Diabetic Neuropathy: What Does this Diagnosis Mean for My Health?
Diabetic neuropathy is a common complication resulting from diabetes that occurs when high blood sugar (glucose) injures nerve fibers. While damage can occur to nerves throughout the body, diabetic neuropathy most frequently damages nerves in the legs and feet. In severe cases, this damage can result in the loss of a limb and require amputation. The first step to preventing further nerve damage is to take control of your blood sugar levels. A balanced diet and active lifestyle can slow the progression of diabetic neuropathy and support whole body health.
How Does Holistic Chiropractic Address Diabetic Neuropathy?
Dr. Gehnrich’s approach to diabetic neuropathy will put you back in control of your body. On a physical level, we support this healthy movement and 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.
Simple changes, like eating a balanced diet and being active every day, can make a significant difference for your health. However, Dr. Gehnrich also understands that taking the first step to making these lifestyle changes is not easy. We work closely with every patient to identify the root cause for unhealthy habits and make long-term changes.
Our whole body approach to care considers the physical, chemical and emotional stressors in your life. In addition to dietary changes, our approach includes emotional release techniques, body-centered therapy, breath work techniques, and stress awareness techniques.
