The Importance of Weight Loss 

Obesity has become an epidemic, affecting millions of people across the United States. This is largely due to poor dieting and sedentary lifestyles among Americans. Excess weight poses a serious health concern, as it acts as a gateway to various health problems. Overweight people are more at risk of developing heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and general health deterioration. Living with excess weight means a shortened lifespan for many. The good news is, these health risks can be reduced by losing weight. 

Weight loss benefits include the following:

  • Lifespan expansion
  • Decreased risk of heart disease
  • Decreased risk of diabetes
  • Decreased risk of cancer
  • Overall mood improvement
  • More energy
  • Better mobility
  • Less stress on the body
  • Less back pain
  • Improved cholesterol
  • Better sleep health
  • Improved body image

How a Chiropractor Will Help

Chiropractors are doctors who specialize in addressing the musculoskeletal system. This includes maintaining decent spinal health. Someone with excess weight may be placing unnecessary stress on the spine, leading to back problems. Chiropractic care is also concerned with overall wellbeing. Here at Nichols Chiropractic, we don't just focus on treating specific musculoskeletal disorders; we are also interested in improving the general health and wellness of clientele, and helping clients with weight loss efforts will aid in achieving this. 

In our weight loss program, Nichols Chiropractic will give you the guidance needed to lose weight quickly and efficiently. We can teach you healthy eating habits as well as nutritional food choices. We can also provide advice for an exercise routine that personally fits your body. If needed, we could recommend supplements that aid in your weight loss regime.

I am now pain free 95% of the time, and have Chiropractic treatments nearly once a month to ensure I stay that way.
