Weight Loss Program Q & A

Why is losing weight important?

When you’re overweight, it has a huge impact on your health. Carrying extra pounds affects all the organs of your body, and makes them work harder and less efficiently.

Obesity is now considered a disease by the American Medical Association and is linked with several chronic diseases:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Gallbladder disease

When it comes to chiropractic care, weight loss is just as important. When you’re overweight, your musculoskeletal system is placed under more stress and is likely not to function properly.

How does chiropractic care help with weight loss?

Chiropractors like Dr. Jake are primarily trained to diagnose and treat conditions of the spine and its alignment, but they’re also concerned with patients’ general health and wellness, including reaching and maintaining a healthy weight.

As a practitioner of holistic healthcare, Dr. Jake uses chiropractic adjustments to realign the spine, and reduce the pressure on any nerves. Sometimes this pressure leads to miscommunication between the body and brain, and may contribute to certain weight related issues like hunger control or eating cues.

Back and neck pain can also interfere with your mobility, and keep you from engaging in physical activities. With Dr. Jake’s help, this pain may be able to be reduced, allowing you to exercise and participate in other activities that can help you lose weight.

Can chiropractic care help with weight loss?

If you want to lose weight healthily and keep it off, Dr. Jake can help.

After an initial consultation where Dr. Jake reviews your nutrition and activity habits, as well as provides a thorough examination, he develops a customized weight loss treatment plan. This plan details the types of foods to eat, what to avoid, and the portions that will provide the maximum amount of vitamins and minerals for efficient and lasting weight loss.

Along with this eating plan, Dr. Jake offers exercise classes in his office in Fargo, North Dakota. These classes provide a combination of aerobic and strength building exercises, giving you both the cardio and muscle-building activities you need to reach your weight loss goals.

Dr. Jake also offers patients support and lifestyle coaching that helps you both lose weight, and keep it off.
