Diabetes Prevention

Take Control of Your Diabetic Condition with Physical Therapy & Healthy Nutrition

Diet and exercise play a key role in the management or prevention of the disease, and we often work as a team alongside a patient’s primary care physician to figure out the best plan of action.

We always suggest to people that if they want to begin combating diabetes, that they start by placing a tape measure around their stomachs. Write that number down. Start a program to control your diet, and practice intermittent fasting. This is directly linked to a decrease in A1C, and in turn, the risk for heart disease, diabetes, and other diseases is lowered. As that tape measure’s width gets smaller and smaller, rest assured that you’re winning the fight against this disease.
