Your Chiropractor Offers Medically Supervised Weight Loss
Did you know that your chiropractor is one of your best sources of help with weight loss? That a chiropractor who can cooperate with the physician who is your primary healthcare provider is even better? Chiropractors Dr. Eric Fromm and Dr. Scott Habers of A Family Practice & Wellness Center in Cartersville, GA, work with Emerson Cochran, MD, and a team of physical therapists and massage therapists to help patients like you get into shape and lose weight. Here are some of the many ways an integrated team of healthcare professionals at a chiropractic clinic can make your weight loss easier.
Your Chiropractor Is an Expert in Drug-Free Pain Relief
The last thing you want to do when you are in pain is to get up and exercise, but exercise is an essential component to any effective weight loss program. Chiropractic care can correct the old injuries that keep you in pain and keep you from making progress with weight loss.
Chiropractic Adjustments Can Enhance Metabolic Processes
One of the most important influences on weight loss is hormones. The digestive tract and endocrine glands in the torso send messages to the brain that the brain uses to regulate appetite and calorie burning. Relieving pressure on nerves caused by slipped discs and poor alignment can make this communication process more efficient. Connecting body and brain will help your body use calories more efficiently and regulate how much or how little you want to eat.
Your Chiropractor Can Help You Get Better Sleep
It's a well-established principle that not getting enough sleep predisposes you to gain weight. Your body makes growth hormone to build the muscles that burn the fat while you are sleeping. Your body regulates the hormones leptin and ghrelin that blunt and stimulate your appetite while you are sleeping. Chiropractic care can help you get more sleep so you lose more weight.
