How Chiropractic Treatments Help You Lose Weight

It’s no secret that losing weight can be hard. There are so many factors that determine weight loss such as: current weight, age, sex, metabolism, genetics and a host of other variables.  Trying to figure out what works best for you can be difficult considering there are literally hundreds, if not thousands, of diets, workout plans, supplements, cleanses, protein shakes and meal plans out there to choose from.

Then, once you develop your action plan, you may find that at a certain point, no matter what you do, you have hit a plateau in your weight loss where the pounds just stop dropping. This may be a time where some extra help is required, and fortunately, there is a natural treatment that may be the answer.

How Chiropractic Treatments Help You Lose Weight

Chiropractic treatments may be able to supplement your weight loss goals by helping your body get rid of the weight faster under safe circumstances. Discover Health and Wellness chiropractors specialize in aiding in weight loss not only with chiropractic manipulations, but by offering nutritional and exercise advice as well.

Our doctors are educated in nutrition science and should be able to work with you on creating a nutrition plan that is well-suited for your needs based on your metabolism and other factors. By approaching weight loss in this multi-pronged way, the patient is more likely to see better, longer lasting results.

Get Adjusted

If exercising causes discomfort, getting regular chiropractic adjustments, your spine may be relieved of pressure that could be causing subluxations, or dysfunctions of the spine. With these subluxations removed, then exercise may become easier and your diet might start being more effective. When you aren’t in pain, you should be able to work out longer, and do more intense workouts that have the ability to burn more calories. Which in turn should contribute to greater weight loss.

Chiropractic adjustments may in and of themselves give your muscles a tone up. Although it’s not a match for those dumbbells, think of the chiropractic manipulations as a supplement to your lifting much like your protein shake. Adjustments may help get rid of adipose tissue, which may lead to better muscle tone, making it harder for the body to put on excess weight.

Adjustments may also be beneficial after you complete your workout by allowing your muscles to relax, which might help them get ready for your next workout session. During this time your chiropractor might be able to spot potential injuries, which may help fix certain ailments before they turn into an issue that might hinder your weight loss.  So contact your chiropractor to get you on the right track!  Don’t have one, reach out to Discover Health and Wellness for a location near you!
