Diabetes is one of those conditions that if dealt with properly, can be managed effectively throughout your life. We all know that it isn’t just about taking medicine. Proper management often includes a variety of things and one of the biggest things on that list is physiotherapy. Physiotherapy has an incredible influence on the progression of diabetes, and its associated issues!
