Individuals with diabetes have a 35 percent risk of developing neck pain and back pain, according to a recent research study. The researchers conducted eight research studies on separate occasions which revealed that individuals with diabetes have a higher chance of developing neck pain and back pain. According to the researchers, chronic pain is common in people with diabetes.
Approximately 80 percent of the population will experience some type of back pain throughout their lifetime and nearly half of that number will also suffer from neck pain, according to researchers. Meanwhile, diabetes has become an increasingly common health issue. About 382 million individuals have been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, according to the World Health Organization.
Despite the outcome measures, it seems there’s still inadequate evidence in the research study to establish a causal connection between diabetes and chronic pain,” stated Manuela Ferreira, Ph.D., the research study’s senior author and associate professor in the university’s Institute of Bone and Joint Research. “The evidence requires further evaluation of this institution,” he explained.
“Type 2 diabetes and chronic back pain both have a strong connection with lack of physical activity or exercise and obesity. T
The research study also demonstrated that diabetes drugs and/or medications might also influence chronic pain, possibly via its effect on blood sugar levels. However, this connection also requires further research studies. Additionally, the research study advocated that health professionals should consider screening for diabetes in patients looking for chronic pain relief, such as back pain or neck pain.

Additional Topic Discussion: Acute Back Pain
Back pain is one of the most prevalent causes of disability and missed days at work worldwide. Back pain attributes to the second most common reason for doctor office visits, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections. Approximately 80 percent of the population will experience back pain at least once throughout their life. Your spine is a complex structure made up of bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, among other soft tissues. Injuries and/or aggravated conditions, such as herniated discs, can eventually lead to symptoms of back pain. Sports injuries or automobile accident injuries are often the most frequent cause of back pain, however, sometimes the simplest of movements can have painful results. Fortunately, alternative treatment options, such as chiropractic care, can help ease back pain through the use of spinal adjustments and manual manipulations, ultimately improving pain relief.
