Learning About Diabetes Diagnosis, Treatment and Research

Welcome to my site, my name is Jess Indaja. I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes after struggling with my weight throughout my teen years and adulthood. My doctor informed me about all of the dangers associated with my diet and exercise habits. I was encouraged to change the way I ate and moved in an effort to reverse my blood sugar problem. I made the changes, but still struggle with controlling my blood sugar. After going through this trying situation, I decided to make a site that may help others with problems associated with type 2 diabetes. I will discuss diagnostic procedures, treatments and medical research concerning this disease. I hope you visit often and learn all you can to control your type 2 diabetes or help others with this condition.

Beyond Back Pain: Conditions You Didn't Know Chiropractic Care Could Treat

by Carla Hudson

Chiropractic care is a popular way for adults to alleviate back pain. In fact, each year 22 million Americans see chiropractors for issues like lower back strains and herniated discs. However, chiropractors can treat many other common medical ailments. You may not need medication from your physician that makes you sleepy, unable to drive or work when you have a migraine or suffer from vertigo. So, the next time you or member of family suffers from one of the following medical problems, consider seeking treatment from your chiropractor like the one from Chiropractor Plus.


If you suffer from fibromyalgia, persistent musculoskeletal pain that causes you to lose sleep and affects your mood, chiropractic care can complement standard treatment for the condition. Fibromyalgia can lead to a host of other medical issues such as irritable bowel syndrome, temporomandibular joint disorders, sleeping disorders, anxiety and depression.

Left untreated, fibromyalgia can disrupt your life and cause you to miss work and avoid participating in social activities. A chiropractor uses hand adjustment to reduce the pain in your joints, neck, back and other areas. The treatment can also extend your range of motion in affected muscles and joints.

Prenatal Pelvic and Posture Problems

Chiropractors treat pregnant women who experience issues with their posture and pelvic area. Pelvic misalignment can affect how much room a baby has to develop during pregnancy and your level of comfort during delivery. Some healthcare providers may suggest that you see a chiropractor if you suffer from a pelvic imbalance or poor posture during pregnancy.

In addition to providing adjustments that do not put unnecessary pressure on the abdomen, chiropractors also provide pregnant women with exercise advice to help make carrying a child more comfortable.

Chiropractors that specialize in treating pregnant women and young children earn additional certification to attest to their qualifications in prenatal and postnatal care.

Migraines and Headaches

Popping pills and taking a long nap in a dark room is a common way to deal with debilitating headaches and migraines that literally knock you off your feet and that cause nausea, dizziness and vision problems.

If prescription drugs do little to alleviate your migraines or you want to explore a more holistic option for relief, a chiropractor can provide spinal manipulation to treat the pain. In fact, research has shown that spinal manipulative therapy can provide an immediate improvement for pain from headaches that originate in the neck.

In addition, if you opt for chiropractic treatment you will not have to deal with the side effects of prescription medications. Furthermore, a chiropractor can provide you with strategies to help you avoid developing severe muscle tension in your neck that can cause headaches, such as low-impact exercises and diet changes.
