For most people, losing weight is extremely difficult. We only have to look at a piece of cake to put on weight, but when we try to lose weight we need to exercise and watch every portion we eat to even see a slight difference on the scales. Nevertheless, it is extremely important to lose weight.

Obesity is a major problem in the United States, and has serious and potentially deadly consequences for our health. We could avoid severe and debilitating health problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, arthritis and more, and instead enjoy a healthier and longer life.

Many times people who are obese and desperate to lose weight explore several different ways of doing so, from dieting and exercising to the extremes of surgery. However, one weight loss solution that is often overlooked is visiting your chiropractor.


Weight loss is a big problem in our society. It is often difficult to keep the weight off. People visit their chiropractors for treatments that enable them to lose weight and keep the weight off.

They visit their chiropractors in order to improve other symptoms that they have, such as back pain, leg pain and headaches, but they also visit their chiropractors because they are educated in other therapies that can help their bodies to manage themselves better from the inside. These therapies include rehabilitative exercises, massage and in some cases, dietary changes.

When people with slow metabolisms gain weight, they are less likely to be able to lose that weight. Their metabolism is not functioning at its full capacity, making it harder for them to burn fat and lose weight. Chiropractic care can help improve the functioning of their metabolism, making it easier for them to lose excess weight.


A chiropractic weight loss program is a series of appointments that combines different types of therapies in order to help you to lose weight. These will include:

The chiropractic treatment involves the manipulation of the spine to correct the alignment and also to improve the functioning of the nervous system. The nutritional counseling is done to ensure that the patient gets the right nutrients without consuming too many calories.

The customized exercise plan is based on the patient’s physical capabilities, lifestyle constraints and the type of diet that the chiropractor believes beneficial. The chiropractors also recommend some specific types of massage and exercises that they think may be beneficial.

Exactly how long your chiropractic weight loss program will last will depend on your individual circumstances, including how well your body responds to the therapies included. Your chiropractor will be happy to discuss this with you at your regular appointments.
