Spinal health is central to everything we do here at Wirth Chiropractic. In fact, as defined by the National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH), chiropractic care relies on the body’s natural ability to heal and regulate itself. Whether through targeted manipulations or a focused exercise regimen, we believe that the spine is the key to overall health. If you’re new to the practice, however, you may not be aware of just how detrimental a subluxated (misaligned) spine can be.

Subluxations are frequently the cause of pain in patients’ back, shoulders, neck, and legs. Not only that, but misaligned vertebrae can actually inhibit proper function in one or more of the body’s many systems: the nervous system, the digestive, system, and even the immune system all rely on signals from the brain. Subluxation can cause these signals to misfire or fall short of their destination entirely.

One of the most interesting but often overlooked benefits of chiropractic care is the patient’s ability to lose weight. Weight loss is among the most popular and highly sought-after achievements in today’s world. But it isn’t easy by any means. Many people are able to shed several pounds with a strict diet and intense exercise, but a chiropractor may be the secret weapon you’ve been waiting for. Let’s take a look at what makes chiropractic care perfect for weight loss:

  1. Less Pain, More Gain. Spinal manipulations and adjustments have repeatedly been known to reduce pain. Patients regularly report an increase in energy and a decrease in discomfort and stiffness. Living with chronic pain can discourage many from pursuing their fitness goals and losing weight. But a chiropractic adjustment may be just the motivation you need to hit the gym or go for a run.
  2. Digestive Health & Efficiency. A subluxated spine can prevent certain involuntary processes from working at maximum efficiency. This includes your digestive system. An inefficient or ineffective digestive system can lead to weight gain, but proper chiropractic adjustment can restore your body to full health.
  3. Holistic Health. While a chiropractor may be well-versed on spinal health, they can also be a wealth of knowledge on topics such as exercise and nutrition. Ask your chiropractor about ways to build muscle, improve posture, and create a nutrition plan tailored to weight loss.
