Can Chiropractic Help You Lose Weight?


If you’ve been talking about New Year’s Resolutions, you’ve probably heard others saying (or said yourself) that a weight loss regimen is at the top of the list. Just do a quick Google search, and you’ll likely find that weight loss is one of the top three New Year’s Resolutions. You probably are already aware that losing weight isn’t one of the easiest things in the world, and chiropractic may be able to help.

Nothing Worth Having Comes Easy…

Truth be told, there’s no fast and simple hack to just drop the weight, and any company claiming to do so shouldn’t be trusted. At the end of the day, this New Years Resolution is one that requires changes to your daily routine and replacing unhealthy habits with healthy ones. When trying to lose weight, a step that might help you is to maintain regular chiropractic care. There have been several studies that reveal the overall health and wellness benefits that chiropractic can bring into a person’s life. As chiropractors, we won’t promise an instant cure to any health issue, but there is evidence that chiropractic adjustments and treatments, when used in conjunction with other healthy lifestyle habits, can help individuals achieve their weight loss goals.

Chiropractic Care Can Impact Weight

One of the main reasons we find our patients are having difficulty reaching their weight loss goals is because they are fixated on the idea that they only have to do one thing…whether it’s go on a diet, go for a run, or get an adjustment. By focusing on only one aspect of a healthy diet and exercise program, they don’t see the results they want, and end up giving up.

Living a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle is the best way to approach weight loss. For starters, your overall quality of life improves as your health improves. Additionally, when incorporating chiropractic care, you are providing the body with a natural treatment. The goal of chiropractic is not to provide only immediate relief from issues like back pain, but to help the body heal properly and function optimally from the inside out, making it less likely to face other health issues like weight gain.

What Happens During a Session?

During a chiropractic session, our team will examine your spinal column for any misalignments. These misalignments cause interferences to the central nervous system, which can interrupt communication between the brain and the body. As a result, many functions in the body can decline, including your metabolic system’s ability to burn fat. When adjustments are performed, the spine is brought back into proper alignment and vital communication is restored.
