Weight Loss Q & A

How does my weight affect my health?

If you struggle with weight loss, you’re not alone. According to the World Health Organization, more than 1.9 billion adults worldwide are overweight or obese.

Being overweight or obese increases your risk for many serious health conditions, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Kidney problems
  • Liver problems
  • Certain types of cancer

One of the main reasons weight loss plans don’t work is that they tend to focus on one thing, like following a strict diet that’s not sustainable over the long-term. The team at One Light Medical treats your body on a holistic level. They help you create a healthy lifestyle so weight loss happens naturally.

How does chiropractic care help with weight loss?

Many people are familiar with the benefits of chiropractic care for pain relief, but did you know it can help you lose weight, too? Regular visits to One Light Medical can help you lose weight in many ways, such as:

Pain relief

Living in pain is a major hindrance on your ability to lose weight. Chronic pain makes it difficult or impossible to exercise regularly, which is a key aspect of maintaining a healthy body weight. Regular chiropractic adjustments can also reduce or eliminate your need for pain medications, many of which cause weight gain as a side effect.

Stress relief

Misalignments in your spine can lead to muscle spasms, tension, and headaches that prevent you from relaxing. When you’re stressed, your body releases a chemical called cortisol that lowers your ability to burn fat.

Nutritional counseling

Proper nutrition is critical for a healthy life. the team teaches you what foods to eat for optimal weight loss and body performance as well as foods you should avoid.

What does a chiropractic weight loss plan involve?

At your first visit to One Light Medical, the team spends extra time with you to discuss your specific concerns and weight loss goals. They review your medical history and lifestyle habits and then develops an individualized treatment plan that may include:

  • Chiropractic care
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Lifestyle advice

After you’ve achieved your ideal weight, you may want to consider Contour Light noninvasive body contouring to reduce stubborn pockets of fat. Body contouring is not a weight loss treatment, but it may help you achieve the physique you desire without surgery.
