Diabetes is a leading cause for Peripheral Neuropathy, as 60% of those with diabetes will develop this painful condition. Although chiropractic isn’t a cure for Peripheral Neuropathy, it should be an integral part of any diabetic patient’s treatment plan.
“Chiropractic care is an effective treatment for Peripheral Neuropathy because it targets the root cause for a patient’s pain symptoms; we do not simply rely on medication to numb this pain. While chiropractic care is not a ‘cure’ for Peripheral Neuropathy, it is an important part of an effective treatment program.” Chiropractor Paul Raveling.
Raveling also believes that early diagnosis and treatment may reduce the severity of the motor nerve and sensory nerve damage, as well as help patients with the management of the disease. Therefore, Nerve Conduction Velocity (NCV) and Electromyogram (EMG) testing should be a pivotal part of every chiropractor’s diabetic patient’s treatment plan. GPA Capital writes this into our business plans for our chiropractic clients (PCPs also), as we focus on the top two business strategies 1. better patient outcomes and 2. better practice cash flow.
