Diabetes Care

At Progressive Integrated Healthcare, we combine manual chiropractic adjustments and massage with physical therapy and medical care to provide a truly integrated approach that is unique to our Dallas location. Dr. Adams is a Doctor of Chiropractic Medicine as well as a licensed family nurse practitioner. This gives him the authority to prescribe medication and manage medical conditions such as diabetes.

Dr. Adams promotes your body’s optimal fitness health by focusing on nutrition and lifestyle. As a medical provider, he can also write any prescriptions necessary to give patients a jumpstart on their weight loss journey. Attaining a healthy weight is often the first step to successfully managing or reversing diabetes.

Diabetes Facts

More than 100 million Americans have diabetes or pre-diabetes. It is the most prevalent preventable medical condition in the United States, and one of the most potentially harmful. Uncontrolled diabetes is closely linked to nerve damage, kidney damage, heart disease, blindness and even dementia.

There are two major factors that make someone more or less likely to develop diabetes: lifestyle and genetics.

  • A sedentary lifestyle can lead to extra body weight, which is a risk factor for diabetes. If you are sedentary due to pain and stiffness, chiropractic adjustments and physiotherapy can help you regain range of motion so that you can become more mobile. Dr. Adams can also reduce your pain through therapeutic massage, pain medication, or a combination of both.
  • Diabetes and insulin resistance tend to run in families. If you have parents who suffer from insulin resistance, chances are good that you are predisposed to it as well. Our integrated approach to health and wellness will guide you through planning a healthier lifestyle that will help your body process insulin more efficiently.

 

An Integrated Approach to Diabetes Care

Even if your diabetes is influenced by your genetics, you can still reverse it through lifestyle changes and medication. Our clinic can handle the holistic side of the equation as well as the medical side. Dr. Adams starts off by giving diabetes patients a thorough physical examination and bloodwork to help him determine the severity of the disease. He then determines if pain is the causing the patient to have a sedentary lifestyle. If so, Progressive Integrated Healthcare offers numerous therapies that can reduce or eliminate pain and increase range of motion.

After a treatment plan has been arranged, we assist you in maintaining your health by monitoring your blood sugar, managing medications, developing personalized nutrition counseling, providing fitness and health education, and helping you prevent diabetic complications.

Activity Level and Pain

Physical activity is crucial to maintaining good blood sugar control. At Progressive Integrated Healthcare, we understand that painful conditions like arthritis and spinal misalignments can keep you from getting the exercise you need. That’s why we provide effective pain management through:

  • Spinal Adjustment. A spinal subluxation or bulging disc can press against nerves, causing sciatica or other painful conditions. Our chiropractic adjustments bring you back into alignment.
  • Joint Mobility. Our therapists gently manipulate your joints to help them regain flexibility and motion.
  • Physical Therapy. We use a combination of passive and active exercise and stretches to build up strength and stamina.
  • Massage Therapy. Our deep tissue massages gradually increase in pressure to work out the deepest muscle knots and tension.
  • Trigger Point Injection. When massage and realignment aren’t enough, local anesthetic injections can be administered to areas that are subject to knots and spasms.
  • Pain Medication. As a nurse practitioner, Dr. Adams can prescribe pain medication as needed to help you get the maximum relief from your discomfort.

We Treat the Cause and the Symptoms

We believe that no one should live with pain or medical conditions like uncontrolled diabetes. Progressive Integrated Healthcare is here to help. Many people try to manage pain their diabetes on their own, but Dr. Adams has the experience and expertise to properly diagnose and treat diabetes, as well as debilitating pain that detracts from your quality of life.

We take the time to understand each patient’s medical history, identify the source of their pain, and then tailor a treatment plan specific to them. It is our goal to help our patients experience pain relief so that they can get back to their daily activities and enjoy their improved health. Schedule your initial appointment today!
