Weight Loss Q & A

How Can Chiropractic Treatment with Dr. Gehnrich Aid Weight Management?

Dr. Gehnrich offers a holistic approach to chiropractic care, helping his patients to improve their overall health and wellbeing, including reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. His counseling includes advice and support to make small changes to lose weight in a healthy and sustainable manner by promoting a balanced lifestyle.

His approach is drug-free and non-invasive, including chiropractic adjustments to ensure that your body is in correct alignment, which helps to support effective and efficient body function. His attentive care identifies and treat any conditions or issues that may make weight loss more challenging, helping you to reach your goal weight as quickly as possible.

Can Being Overweight Hurt My Spine and Other Joints?

Carrying excess weight takes its toll on your whole body including your musculoskeletal system. For example, obesity increases your risk of developing arthritis and can make the painful symptoms worse once the condition develops.

Your lower back and the joints in your knees must support your body weight. When you’re overweight, they bear the extra pressure every time you move or take a step. As a result, joints in the knees and spine degrade more quickly than normal, leading to pain and inflammation.

Can Chiropractic Adjustments Aid in Weight Loss?

Dr. Gehnrich has helped his patients to lose weight and keep it off by offering comprehensive services that consider the whole person. Structural correction of any spinal misalignment is essential because it stabilizes your body, promotes overall health, and improves your ability to move and stay active. But his weight loss services go beyond spinal health.

Dr. Gehnrich specializes in holistic care, which includes guidance about nutrition and diet, and how to reduce calories while maintaining energy and health. He works with you to attain balance in five vital areas that impact your weight: physical activity, healthy foods, proper rest, good emotional health, and a positive mental attitude.

Chiropractic care has been shown to promote emotional health, which is critical as you work to make lifestyle changes needed to lose weight.

As you begin or extend your exercise program, chiropractic care can prevent injury by caring for and protecting your joints and spine. Correct alignment supports the health of your muscles, which can allow the body to burn calories more efficiently. When combined with a healthy diet, this can help your body to reduce stored fat.

Regular visits with Dr. Gehnrich also provide a sense of accountability through your weight loss journey and help keep you on track
