Diabetes is an increasingly prevalent disease within the United States, with an estimate of 30.3 million people having diabetes as of 2015. That’s roughly 9.4% of the United States population diagnosed. Some diabetics require insulin injections to regulate their blood sugar.

For the insulin-dependent diabetic, injections are a part of daily life, but regular injections into the same location can come with side effects.

Crucially, after treatment, patients report significant improvements in mobility and pain relief..."
