You probably know that chiropractic care is great for adjustments, especially of the spine, and maybe you even know that it can help with headaches, sleep difficulties, respiratory problems, and a slew of other health concerns.
Chiropractors focus on the central nervous system, since a misalignment can “choke off” nerves, which in turn can have an impact on every part of the body. However, many people don’t know that chiropractic care and weight loss (or management) is another viable treatment program.
Maybe it’s not a sluggish metabolism or those cheat days make you plateau. Maybe it’s an issue that a chiropractor can address.
First, you must recognize that just because you used to be heavy and may have lost weight the old-fashioned way or even with surgery, that doesn’t mean your body snapped back to perfect health. Carrying excessive weight can do a number on every part of your body, but especially the bones and joints.
Some chiropractors even specialize in overweight/obese patients because they know all too well what excessive weight can do to the spine. Losing the weight is only half the battle; there may be a host of issues below the surface you’re unaware of.
