Can Chiropractic Help You Lose Weight?
Updated: Jul 27
If you want to lose a few extra pounds this month, you are not alone. Many of our patients are working towards a similar goal. How you move, eat, and think daily will determine your success. All three are part of maintaining an active lifestyle. So, where does Chiropractic fit in?
Why it Matters:
Unfortunately, no Chiropractic technique takes off 10 pounds with each adjustment. Still, people like you have been able to maintain a healthy weight by adding Chiropractic care into their active lifestyle.
Research has suggested that regular Chiropractic care can help evaluate, detect, and treat emerging problems. So, by reducing injuries, you can stay active and keep your exercise routine on track.
Also, many people report reduced stress after getting adjusted. This makes sense because research studies have shown reduced muscle tension in the shoulders after an adjustment.
And finally, we firmly believe that healthy food choices significantly impact your body’s ability to be well and stay well. Eating healthy whole foods and sometimes even special supplements can give your body the fuel to get through the day.
Chiropractic has been shown to reduce the stress and tension in the muscles that support your head and neck.
Staying active with daily exercise will help keep your muscles toned and reduce your risk of injury.
Lowering your sugar intake helps to avoid those devastating blood sugar crashes in the afternoon.
