Weight is a struggle for many people. It might seem as if eating less and exercising more would be the answer to weight loss, but it’s often more complicated than this. For many people, the answer to successful weight loss is chiropractic treatments. Using chiropractic care for weight loss can help you reach a healthy weight without feeling deprived and help you maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.
Chiropractors specialize in spinal health. While this might not seem directly related to weight, it absolutely is. When your spine is misaligned, it can cause your entire body to be out of alignment. It can create pain, interfere with metabolism, and affect your energy levels. Seeking chiropractic treatment improves your overall health and well-being, making reaching and maintaining a healthy weight easier.
What are five ways chiropractic care helps you lose weight?
Chiropractic care helps boost your metabolism. Treatments address underlying issues with your nervous system that clog your metabolism. They also address injuries that prevent you from ramping up your metabolism with physical activity. The more you move, the more efficient your metabolism works. When pain interferes with your ability or desire to move, your metabolism slows, making it difficult to drop pounds.
Additionally, chiropractic treatments increase glucose metabolism in certain parts of the brain. It’s one of the best options you have for improving your metabolism.
Chiropractic treatments help you reduce inflammation and the accompanying pain that prevents you from working out. Treatments restore proper spinal alignment and balance the body. Chiropractic care lowers protein production, interfering with the immune system and contributing to inflammation. Most people experience relief with just a single treatment, but over time, you see even more improvement.
When you work out and gradually lose weight, it alleviates extra weight on your spine, pelvis, and feet. Over time, you can build on your progress. The more you move, even if it’s just a gentle walk, the better you feel as the weight drops away. As the weight drops, you’re able to move more and might even participate in more strenuous workouts that help you build strength.
Chiropractic care helps you feel good enough to exercise and lose weight, and exercising and losing weight helps you feel better overall.
Recovering from a workout, especially a challenging one, doesn’t always feel great. Even if you don’t overexert yourself, you might be sore for a day or two after a workout.
Massage therapy after a workout can reduce recovery time.
A massage after a workout increases blood and lymph circulation. It reduces inflammation, increases flexibility, and resolves muscle pain and tightness. This makes it easier to get back in the gym regularly without waiting days to recover after a workout.
Chiropractors offer nutritional counseling to help you improve your diet. They are trained to assess your entire body. In many cases, nutritional deficiencies are the cause of inflammation and pain. Improving your diet by removing and adding things can play a significant role in how you feel.
Nutrition also plays a role in the development and progression of various diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, and other problems. All of these make it difficult to feel your best and can leave you feeling too fatigued to exercise and make smart health choices. Dietary changes can go a long way in helping you manage chronic health conditions that interfere with your ability to lose extra pounds.
Chiropractors provide general advice for improving your diet. They also assess the individual patient to determine which dietary changes will be the most beneficial. They’ll also offer tips for improving your gut’s microbiome, which can go a long way in improving the health of your entire body.
Chiropractors create customized exercise plans for patients. These exercises help you manage any issues you currently have with pain and enhance your overall weight loss efforts. They’ll design custom plans that address things like back pain and offer chiropractic adjustments if a specific exercise isn’t ideal for your current ability. This is especially helpful for people who avoid exercise due to back pain and other issues.
Chiropractic weight loss plans usually involve a series of visits to receive adjustments and ongoing assessments in your efforts to drop weight. During these visits, your chiropractor will:
The length of time it takes you to reach your weight loss goal varies based on your specific needs, but your chiropractor will support you through the entire process.
