November is National Diabetes Month
The Startling Link Between Diabetes and Chronic Pain – And What You Can Do About It.
November is National Diabetes Month, an annual event intended to boost awareness about the risk factors, symptoms, and types of diabetes.
This year’s focus is on raising awareness of risk factors associated with diabetes.
People with diabetes are more likely to experience chronic pain than those without the condition. In fact, one in three diabetes patients has chronic pain.
The link between chronic pain and diabetes is not fully understood, but there are a number of theories. One theory is that the two conditions share common risk factors, such as inflammation. Another theory is that chronic pain may actually lead to diabetes.
Whatever the cause, the link between chronic pain and diabetes is clear. And, unfortunately, chronic pain is a major problem for people with diabetes. Chronic pain can make it difficult to control blood sugar levels, make diabetes-related complications more likely, and decrease the quality of life.
Fortunately, there are things you can do to manage chronic pain. In particular, bioelectronics are emerging as a promising option for drug-free pain relief. If you have chronic pain, talk to your doctor about whether bioelectronics could help you.
Clinical studies have shown bioelectronics to be an effective therapy for both acute and chronic pain.
Physicians are increasingly recommending bioelectronic therapy for patients because it’s effective at reducing pain symptoms, it’s easy to use and localized treatment with no known side effects, and able to be used 24 hours a day so patients can get relief when and where they need it.
Electromedical Technologies is a leader in bioelectronics, with the most advanced system on the market, the WellnessPro Plus®.
Unlike most bioelectronic patient solutions, the WellnessPro Plus® operates with nearly 1 Million frequencies to treat multiple pain related conditions.
Physicians are increasingly recommending the WellnessPro Plus®, as an all-natural, narcotic-free, effective way to address pain.
Electromedical Technologies is the manufacturer of the WellnessPro Plus ®, an FDA CLEARED device offering nearly 1 million frequencies tailored for the relief of chronic, intractable pain as an adjunctive treatment of post-surgical or post-traumatic acute pain.
