Physical Therapy for Diabetics
Diabetes is a condition that millions of Americans suffer from. If you’re looking for proper treatment for your diabetes, our physical therapy in Massapequa can make a custom plan that will help you. At Park Physical Therapy, we will help you manage your diabetic symptoms and get you back to doing the things you love.
What We Can Do For You
There are many treatment options that physical therapy can offer in regards to your diabetes:
- Exercise – A great way to treat diabetic symptoms is resistance exercise. Exercising and staying active is so important because it keeps your cells active, making them more sensitive to insulin use. Another added benefit is that the cells will naturally reduce your blood glucose levels.
- Assess body mass – A major cause of diabetes is obesity. Our physical therapist can assess your body mass and keep track of your body’s progress during an exercise program. As a result, our practice can decide the best course of action in terms of future treatment options.
There are many benefits that physical therapy has to offer for diabetics. Some of these benefits include:
- Blood glucose levels – As stated previously, physical exercise helps reduce the level of glucose in your blood. Our physical therapy in Massapequa provides specialized exercises made for you so that you can properly manage your diabetes.
- Endurance – If your diabetes has resulted in you becoming increasingly tired and lacking energy, physical therapy will be able to help treat that and improve your endurance.
- Motion – If you are having trouble with your range of motion, our physical therapist will be able to conduct exercises that will help regain your normal movement. You will start off with exercises that our physical therapist can assist you with and that will get your body accustomed to the new movements. However, as treatment progresses, you’ll start more rigorous exercises that you’ll do by yourself.
