Diabetic Back Pain: Where It Comes From and How Your Patients Can Cope
Diabetic back pain may seem minor at first, but if it goes untreated for an extended period of time, it could quickly turn from acute to chronic. Depending on what a patient does for a living, they may be able to cope with the pain more easily, but that doesn’t mean they should be treated any differently than a person who has a lower pain tolerance.
Back pain in people with diabetes is often the result of nerve damage brought by the illness, and often presents alongside other harmful side effects. While diabetic back pain is typically treatable and can ease over time, it’s important to give your patients the treatment they deserve to get back on their feet pain free. Business owners should take their employees’ conditions into special consideration and create accommodations, which can take many forms. Sometimes the treatment your employees need will require some advanced pain management techniques, which we highlight in this article.
Try Different Approaches
Providing quality professional medical services means to give the patient the treatment they need, and understand every patient is different. Some will react better to physical treatment, while others will do better with mental, spiritual or neurological approaches.
We take a combination of approaches when treating a patient initially, just to see which ones they react to positively. Of course, having the patient’s interests in mind at all times is critical. Sometimes you will have to provide them with the treatment you know will work, even if they are apprehensive at first.
Get Them Specialized Treatment
Depending on the patient and the severity of their pain, specialized treatment may be necessary. Your office may only be able to provide a certain amount of services to patients with diabetic back pain, so that’s where we are available to help.
At DBC Active Spine Care, our goal is to provide efficient and effective outcomes for patients. Sometimes patients need a complete spine restoration in order to help them live the lifestyle they are used to. Unfortunately, most people have dealt with back pain for so long they don’t even know what it’s like to live pain-free.
Our program targets the source of the back pain and restores the ligaments and muscles to help stabilize the spine. The best part about our service is the patient will start to see improvements as their treatment continues.
