Those who have diabetes are likely familiar with the common symptoms associated with the condition. However, certain types of issues can take years to develop. One such example of this is diabetic nerve pain. This type of pain is associated with tingling, burning, or throbbing sensations in the hands and feet.
Diabetic nerve pain can be extremely debilitating and can disrupt anyone’s daily routine. However, the dedicated specialists at Chicago Sports & Spine provide a non-invasive way for sufferers to manage this pain more effectively and improve their quality of life.
What Causes Diabetic Nerve Pain?
The presence of high blood sugar in the body can have a significant impact on the nerves. Since many nerves send signals to the hands and feet to facilitate proper feeling and healthy movement, damage to these nerves can result in pain and numbness.
How Can Diabetic Nerve Pain Affect an Individual?
The hands and feet are extremely important for almost all daily activities. When these parts of the body are rendered sensitive to the touch or completely numb by diabetic nerve pain, it can be impossible for a person to work, meet family obligations, or even move around their home comfortably.
How Can This Condition Be Treated?
By utilizing specific techniques designed to ease the tension in muscles and help stimulate nerves in the body, pain management specialists can help nerves resume their normal function. This non-invasive, non-medicinal procedure is one of the safest options available as it has the least amount of possible side effects.
Just as a massage can ease muscle tension and alleviate numbness, pain management from licensed specialists can improve nerve functions and reduce the effects of diabetic nerve pain.
No one should have to put up with this type of draining condition. Receiving pain management help is the first step to improving one’s nerve functions and quality of life! Call us today and set up an appointment – (312) 623-7246.
