Weight Loss Help from Southington Chiropractor
There are many people who wonder why we put so much emphasis on nutrition and fitness here at Grant Chiropractic Health Center, but the answer is very simple: making wise eating and exercise choices can vastly improve your life. Unfortunately, the mainstream media puts more emphasis on how weight loss looks, rather than how it feels. Mountains of scientific research show how excess weight can instigate and worsen conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke risk. This is why Southington chiropractor, Dr. Carol Grant is so enthusiastic about helping people lose weight: people can literally add years to their lives by doing so-happier, healthier years!
Weight Loss and Chiropractic Care Work Together
Dr. Grant uses the Take Shape for Life Program in our chiropractic office. In fact, she has lost 18 pounds of fat over 5 months on the program, and she is eager for everyone to enjoy the same benefits of weight loss that she is experiencing. This is not a fad diet program; it is a complete way-of-life change that improves your overall health and quality of life. Instead of denying yourself, you learn how to love making choices that make you healthier-to give yourself the positive power to change for the better.
As a chiropractor, Dr. Grant sees the musculoskeletal problems that overweight patients suffer from every day. Excess weight stresses the spine as well as the muscles, ligaments and soft tissues that support its healthy alignment. Back pain is a very frequent complaint for overweight patients for this reason. When the spine is pulled out of alignment, nerves are pinched. Pinched nerves can also lead to neck pain, headaches and migraines and other forms of chronic pain throughout the body. In fact, recent studies have found a correlation between being overweight and suffering from an increased incidence of headaches and migraines. Chiropractic spinal adjustments can help, but unless a patient loses weight, the problems usually return.
We already know that being overweight can dramatically increase a person's vulnerability to many diseases. Excess weight is leading to an epidemic of diabetes and heart disease. Overweight people are also more likely to suffer from cancer and strokes, and are generally more susceptible to injury and decreased immune system function. Southington Chiropractor Dr. Grant wants to help her patients avoid these things by helping them change their lifestyles so that they lose weight the healthy way and keep it off for good.
If you are ready to lose weight, Dr. Grant is ready to help. After a complete health assessment, she will start helping you learn how to make great choices in nutrition, exercise and getting enough rest. We will set goals together, frequently review them and provide the support you need to succeed!
