Does Massage Have Benefits for People With Diabetes?

Effects of Diabetes on the Body

If left treated, diabetes may lead to many health issues in the long term. Peripheral neuropathy is the most common complication. It causes nerve damage outside the brain and spinal cord.

While more research should be done, some studies have shown that massage therapy would help reduce these neuropathy problems. In the next sections, we will learn more about this treatment and how it can benefit people with diabetes. [1]
