Chiropractic Adjustments for Weight Loss Management
The physicians at Pioneer Chiropractic & Wellness in Northwest Portland can help you reach your weight goals without the use of short-term “solutions” like miracle dieting, quick weight loss products, or surgery. Simply by adopting positive long-term lifestyle changes, you can reach and maintain your ideal weight.
Healthy weight programs for the long term
Unlike standard diet programs, our strategy for losing weight looks at the whole picture. Your health is an interconnected system with several hidden factors contributing to how your body looks on the outside.
Our team follows a routine to look at your medical history and perform physical examinations before outlining a weight loss program. Why? Because weight loss strategies are not one-size-fits-all. We design a weight loss strategy for your unique body, making the hard work of losing weight feel as natural as possible.
Our chiropractic weight loss programs help you achieve and sustain a healthy lifestyle.
How the spine can affect your weight
The management of weight loss involves holistic chiropractic care that enhances flexibility and eases pressure on the spinal cord. Chiropractors at our clinic will help identify lifestyle traits that may be contributing to weight gain, paying special attention to levels of strain on the spine. We start by asking questions like:
- Do you eat healthy in general?
- How often do you participate in sports or exercise?
- What do you do to minimize stress?
- Any work related injuries?
- Do you have children?
Is spinal misalignment part of the problem?
Fixing the origin of the problem rather than temporarily changing dietary habits produces surprisingly dramatic results. For example, if there is spinal misalignment, or vertebral subluxation, communication throughout the nervous system, including signals that control hunger, may be hindered. Furthermore, pain caused by misalignment in the spine limits the body’s range of motion and therefore limits physical activity.
Chiropractic adjustments such as spinal manipulation can repair these problems in the spine and nervous system, opening the path to faster weight loss and general well-being.
Lose Weight the Healthiest Way Possible
The best chiropractic care starts with personalized treatment. Which is why our approach starts with a full evaluation that ensures you aren’t getting generic service. We help identify factors that our clients may not have ever considered as affecting their weight.
