If you suffer from back pain or other health problems, you may already have experienced the difference that chiropractic care can make for your health. Adjustments bring alignment back to the spine, relieving chronic pain. In addition to chiropractic adjustments, maintaining a healthy weight will make a significant difference for your body’s overall health and help reduce chronic pain. Excess weight compresses the bones and strains the joints, exacerbating pain and increasing the risk for injury. Losing weight can make a significant difference for your pain management and overall health. That’s why our chiropractor offers an all-natural weight loss program that will help you lose weight fast.
Many of our patients have tried to lose weight fast in the past. Some have succeeded – only to find that they stopped dieting and the weight returned. Losing weight can be challenging if you suffer from chronic pain. Even basic exercises may feel painful, which means you are more likely to lead a sedentary lifestyle, making weight loss more difficult. Our chiropractor understands the challenges of yo-yo dieting and weight loss when also struggling with chronic pain. That’s why our weight loss service was created specifically to meet our patients’ unique needs.
The first part of our weight loss program is nutritional counseling. Adjusting your food intake is essential for natural weight loss. The foods you eat have a big impact not only on your weight, but also on your energy levels and overall health. The standard American diet is weighed down with artificial flavors, sweeteners and ingredients. Our chiropractor will help you make the shift to healthy eating. As part of our Akron weight loss program, our chiropractor will help you to create a custom meal plan that helps you gradually incorporate whole foods into your diet.
Our weight loss program is suitable for patients of all ages and dietary needs, including a gluten-free diet, vegetarian or vegan diets, and food allergies. By making long-term lifestyle changes, you will no longer be on a diet rollercoaster. You will be able to finally lose the weight and keep it off.
Even with chronic pain, it is possible to be active each day. Our chiropractor will teach you corrective exercises that you can do from the comfort of your own home. These exercises will help you build core strength, flexibility, coordination and balance. Most importantly, these exercises are customized to your specific health needs: you will be able to safely move without the fear of injury. As you lose weight and begin to safely exercise, you will notice your pain diminishing. Our patients also report sleeping better at night, having more energy, and being able to focus better on work.
Whether you need to lose 10, 20, 50 pounds or more, taking control of your weight is important for pain management and whole body health. Talk to our chiropractor and learn more about our Akron weight loss program today!
