Can Chiropractic Treatment Help You Lose Weight?
Family Chiropractor & Weight Loss Treatments in Albany, NY
The relationship between weight loss & chiropractic treatment.
When we’re not feeling our best physically, it’s only natural to not want to move around much. After all, if moving is just going to cause pain, then why even bother? Of course, this cycle of inactivity tends to lead to weight gain. The certainty of whether weight gain causes back pain or vice versa has yet to be determined, but the two are correlated.
So can chiropractic treatment for chronic back pain really serve as an effective treatment for weight loss?
Chiropractic and back pain treatments can temporarily offer you relief from your chronic pain, which can allow you to exercise more frequently and comfortably with a greater range of motion.
More effective exercise like this, when paired with a healthy diet and an effective weight loss treatment plan, can lead to weight loss. In turn, this weight loss can lead to less pain in general. Adjustments can also rid your body of adipose tissues, or fat, which lead to better muscle tone.This improvement in muscle tone will make it more difficult for your body to put on excess weight.
Finally, back pain adjustments from a family chiropractor can remove misalignments in your spine, which can also bring relief and make exercising easier. A better, more effective range of motion can make your workout more efficient, making it easier for you to exercise and get moving on a regular basis.
While chiropractic treatments to help back pain may not directly lead to weight loss, they can absolutely set the course in motion.
