You may have put on some extra weight gradually over the years and have only just recently really started to notice the pounds. Or perhaps some additional pounds appeared while recovering from surgery that prevented you from keeping active. Whatever the reason for weight gain, it’s time to work with a professional who can help you transform your body so you will look and feel your best.
After all, excess weight can lead to a range of health problems, from joint pain because of the extra pressure you put on them, to the potential for diabetes and a feeling that you lack energy. You can rest assured that your local chiropractor at Ridge Health Center has plenty of experience helping people just like you gain greater control over their weight management.
The chiropractor will ask you questions about your lifestyle and current levels of physical activity and what your eating habits are like, and conduct an examination of you. Laboratory tests may be ordered to see if there are underlying conditions contributing to your weight issues.
If your regular food choices are not so healthy, the chiropractor will help formulate a new meal plan, including plenty of fresh vegetables, with the possibility of supplements to ensure you are getting the right levels of vitamins and minerals.
