Manipulation of the Spine
Subluxations can develop across the spine that diminish a person’s mobility and cause chronic pain that can result in less activity and weight gain given that the nerve endings across the spine and connected to the brain govern the body. Chiropractic adjustments are capable of aligning the pathways for nerve signals to reach the brain so that the cue for hunger and satiation are functioning normally. It is also possible to decrease chronic pain with these adjustments and to improve mobility, thereby making it possible for people to move about more in their efforts to drop pounds.
Chiropractors use massage techniques that can effectively promote weight loss and limit stress. These can be deep tissue massages, electronic manipulation, or lymphatic massages, but they are balance out the body and allow for relaxation.
Diet And Nutrition Counseling
Studies have shown that incorporating a comprehensive program for weight loss that includes receiving guidance and nutritional counseling from a Chiropractor can produce favorable and lasting results. Because Chiropractors receive significantly more training in nutritional counseling and diet compared to traditional medical doctors, an individualized nutritional program can be developed that can significantly reduce the risk of serious health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke.
Chiropractic doctors sometimes use acupuncture to help people lose weight or they may electronically stimulate specific accupressure points. Given that this method does not require needle use, it is an entirely painless procedure apart from a slight warming sensation. As time passes, people often experience pain relief, weight loss and better moods overall.
Even though you’ve been having a hard time dropping pounds, you are not entirely without hope. Consulting with a trusted chiropractor will help you establish a healthy lifestyle and start moving towards your weight loss goals by giving you access to an individualized and integrated plan of care.
