Diabetes and Chiropractic Care

BY – Dr. Richard Desir

There has been significant research related to chiropractic care, including its effectiveness in caring for spine-related injuries and complications from spinal stress. This research targeted common problems that Goldson Spine Rehabilitation Center see in their patients: lower back pain, neck pain, headaches, and peripheral nerve problems. Recently new studies examine how chiropractic care can help people with diabetes.



Diabetes can be a serious health issue that developed as a young child (typically referred to as juvenile diabetes, or Type 1) or developed later from an unhealthy lifestyle.

Either way, those that suffer from diabetes have to take great caution in maintaining healthy levels of glucose (sugar or risk serious damage to their bodies).

Traditional treatment options available for diabetes is based on whether you are Type 1 or Type 2 Diabetes. Chiropractic care may help in stabilizing healthy levels of blood sugar if you suffer with diabetes or not.

How can chiropractic care help those who suffer with diabetics?

The upper neck and middle of the back are both responsible for supplying nerve signals to the brain and the vital organs. When there is not a sufficient amount of responses occurring, the pancreas, blood sugar and digestion are all effected. When both the blood sugar and digestion are not working properly there are two major health risks that can arise: diabetes or hypoglycemia. At Goldson Spine we address clearing the path so that the nerve signals to the brain functions well.

Treatment options available includes: correcting misalignments of the spine (also known as vertebral subluxation). This type of treatment helps the relationship between the nervous system and organs.

Chiropractic care is focused on allowing our spine and nerves to work to their best ability, this also allows our organs to function well. Along with helping with optimal functioning of our organs, realigning of the spine may also help with increasing our immune system effectiveness and our hormone functions.

What is the Connection between Diabetes and Chiropractic?

The research into the connection between chiropractic care and the control of sugar in the body points toward chiropractic care as a valuable protocol when addressing patients diagnosed with diabetes. Just what is the connection between diabetes and chiropractic? Well, the answer lies in understanding how nerves from the upper neck or middle back affect pancreatic function influencing how the enzymes needed to digest proteins, fats and carbohydrates, and insulin are produced. If the balance of sugar and digestion become unbalanced, diabetes or hypoglycemia may result.

Therefore chiropractic care at Goldson Spine can quickly become a critical component in not only optimizing your health, but also improving the neural connections throughout the body. The key, says Dr. Desir, is to coordinate immunity and hormone function throughout the body.
