Well, have you ever thought about seeing a chiropractor to help you lose weight?
While this may sound strange, today's chiropractors are trained to look at your overall health and well being... not just you back and neck issues.
And a recent study indicates that there is, “supporting evidence on the effectiveness of a multi-modal approach to weight loss implemented in a chiropractic clinic.”
With this in mind, here are...
While you may have a kink in your neck or a pain in your shoulder and not think anything of it, an experienced chiropractor will check your entire body for proper alignment, posture and movement.
You may discover that:
All of these things can change your body is certain ways so it makes it potentially harder to lose weight.
In addition to your body, good chiropractors will ask about your eating habits, exercise levels, hobbies, work environment, and more.
This way, they can understand how your body is reacting to your activities and daily routine.
Once your chiropractor has all of this information, he or she can develop a unique plan for your physical issues and lifestyle.
To heal and improve your body, this may include physical therapy, massage, chiropractic adjustments, meeting with a nutritionist, special exercises, manipulation under anesthesia, and/or another treatment.
Once you know exactly what is going on with your body, and where you want to be, your chiropractor will work with you to set specific goals.
You may have a certain treatment and exercise plan for a few weeks, and as you progress, your chiropractor will be there to help you adjust your routine accordingly for maximum improvement.
Most important, you don’t need to do this on your own.
