A healthy weight makes for a healthy spine
Determining, and setting a course to maintain, your target weight should be a health priority for all adults. If you look at it from a spinal perspective, keeping off the extra pounds is essential. Every pound over your target weight represents an unsupportable burden for your spine; these pounds increases the compressive factor on your spine, and contribute to spinal degeneration that results in conditions like herniated discs and sciatica. Of course, the easiest way to maintain your target weight is through a strategic combination of nutrition and exercise, but chiropractic adds an augment to this system. How can chiropractic make maintaining a healthy weight easier? Read on to find out.
Chiropractic makes you more likely to exercise
At Espinosa Family Chiropractic, we believe that spinal adjustments, which reset spinal alignment and improve the function of the nervous and immune systems, set the right conditions for weight loss. We also focus on removing physical hindrances that prevent you from seeking exercise in the first place. Pain simply prevents you from doing what you need to do (exercise) to maintain a healthy weight. By alleviating systemic stress throughout the spine and the surrounding musculature, you are more likely to seek out physical activities.
Chiropractic helps keep you on track for your target weight
Chiropractic is not a weight-loss method; rather, it is an augment that helps keep you on track with your target weight. Maintaining a healthy weight is a life-long struggle- the more allies you have in the struggle the better. Chiropractic care, along with a balanced lifestyle that includes plenty of exercise and attention to nutrition is a truly holistic approach toward weight management.
