Diabetes and Musculoskeletal Management
Duration: 44 seconds

Diabetes is a long term medical condition.

If you've developed the musculoskeletal complications these are also going to be a chronic problem that could come and go. It's best to keep on top of it by keeping fit, keeping good control of diabetes, and if the problem persists we have ways of managing.

For example, for trigger fingers they can be injected with some steroid to loosen them up. Carpal tunnel surgery can be done, we have great physiotherapy for shoulder restriction and range of movement, so if you think you have these musculoskeletal complications of diabetes please contact your healthcare provider.
