How Chiropractic Care Works In Weight Loss

Dr. Gustitus will start by discussing your health history and review prior weight loss efforts. He will help you create realistic and progressive weight loss goals, and determine your body’s needs with a thorough examination in order to create an individualized plan. Your plan will take into account your current health condition, lifestyle habits, and fitness level so as to enhance your ability to effectively shed weight. Chiropractors can use weight management strategies such as:

  • Chiropractic Adjustment

    Spine misalignments affect the brain and nervous system and can lead to hormonal imbalances related to neurological, stress, and metabolic functions contributing to weight gain. The nerves located in the spinal column carry messages from your body to and from the brain. Thus, any misalignment can hinder communication. This can contribute to excessive hunger, poor digestion, sluggish metabolism, fatigue, poor sleep, and joint pains contributing to a difficulty burning fat and exercise, leading to weight gain.

    By helping you balance your body alignment, chiropractors facilitate weight loss by helping you heal inflamed joints to allow you to participate in exercise without pain.

  • Nutrition Counseling

    Health nutrition is essential to managing excess weight. Did you know the food you consume plays a bigger role in weight loss than exercise? A well-balanced diet can boost your metabolism, revitalize and energize your cells, detoxify your body, and make you healthier and happy. Hence, opting for a guided weight loss program should be a priority if you are struggling with excess weight. Our Chiropractor at Whole Body Health, Dr. David Gustitus, will advise and put you on the right nutritional plan depending on your needs to help you lose weight effectively.

  • Lifestyle change

    Your lifestyle can impact your well-being and overall health. How do you deal with stress? Do you get enough sleep? Poor sleep due to anxiety, restless legs, neck or back pain, or insomnia, can lower your metabolism and contribute to weight gain. Chronic stress affects eating habits as some people use snack foods and drinks to comfort themselves during stressful times, which often contributes to weight gain.

  • Muscle toning

    Excess weight makes it harder to move, exercise, and therefore, to tone your muscles. Chiropractic adjustments help you restore flexibility, mobility, and strength in your joints and muscles so that you feel better exercising and using your muscles. Being active with both aerobic exercise and strength training you will burn off the excess energy in your adipose tissues leading to better muscle tone. When muscles are healthier they are less sore, your energy increases, and you can feel more relaxed during the day and sleep better.
