Chronic Pain and Weight Gain
Chronic pain and weight gain go hand-in-hand. Back pain is the most common type of pain people struggle with, making daily activities challenging.
Hip and leg pain are also common and are often a result of poor posture.
When you are in pain all the time, working out can be too painful, preventing you from losing weight. In addition, when you are in pain, it is easier to pop something in the microwave than cook healthy meals, which will also impede your weight loss.
Fortunately, your chiropractor can help treat your pain, and you can start working out again and can continue on your weight-loss journey.
How Can Our Team Help?
We can help you achieve your weight-loss goals without prescription diet pills or supplements. Our team will take a holistic approach to help relieve your pain and help your brain and body to work together.
When your body is misaligned, it can cause chronic pain. In addition, a misalignment can affect the way your brain and body communicate, affecting your metabolic system, which makes it harder for your body to burn fat.
The doctor can use manual manipulation techniques to realign your spine, which can reduce your pain level and help you heal faster, so you can get back to the gym. In addition, when your spine is correctly aligned, the communication between your brain and body will improve, improving your metabolic functions, which is essential for weight loss.
How Can Chiropractic Adjustments Help With Weight Loss?
There are a few ways regular visits to Vantage Medical Pain And Wellness Center can help you start losing weight.
- Improves nerve communication: The nerves in your spine contain communication pathways that control your hunger and when you feel full. When your spine is aligned, your brain will know when to eat and when it's time to stop.
- Exercising will be less painful: When you are in pain, you can’t get motivated to go to the gym, and trying to force yourself won't be effective because the pain will affect your ability to work out as intensely as you need to lose weight. The doctor can perform adjustments to help ease your pain, and you can work out properly and burn more calories.
- Daily activities will be easier: Chronic pain can make everyday activities challenging, such as cleaning and cooking. You can burn an average of 350 calories a day performing these activities. If you spend most of your time sitting due to the pain, you will continue gaining weight.
