How our physiotherapists can help with type 2 diabetes?

Physiotherapy may not be the first thought you have if you have diabetes, but you may be surprised to learn how we at Kiltipper Woods Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy clinic Dublin 24 can help.

Physical activity and exercise can help manage diabetes by improving glycaemic control and reduce cardiovascular complications. People that have diabetes often will have other conditions like joint pain, nerve pain or leg ulcers that can make physical activity difficult.

Physiotherapy can help patients with diabetes by:

  • Organising a safe and beneficial exercise program. Our physiotherapist’s can provide suitable activities that are safe and gradual. Hydrotherapy is also a good option considering this.
  • We can assist with pain management: if you suffer from nerve pain caused by diabetes, One of our physiotherapist’s can target exercises that will help manage the pain.
