While the traditional chiropractor’s role is not to help a person lose weight, we can indirectly help you lose weight. Obesity is a serious problem in America with over 35% of all U.S. adults obese. Here at Hopkins Health & Wellness Center, your local Hopkins chiropractor, we understand the seriousness that comes with obesity and the health issues and costs associated with the disease. We have specialized training not only in chiropractic care, but in health and wellness – this includes weight loss and fitness.

The ways that we can help you indirectly not only have a positive impact on your weight loss efforts but also on your overall health and well being, too. Our chiropractic care and adjustments help increase the range of motion in your back, knees, hip, arms, and other joints. This is a major help to those who are suffering with obesity, allowing them to exercise and stay active with  more ease and less discomfort. Because we’re able to help a person’s mobility, we make exercise more realistic for those who are struggling with weight loss and obesity-related pain. This new option to exercise without pain or discomfort, as well as the ability to be more active overall, greatly aids in your weight management effort.

Our yoga classes also help you enhance your flexibility and they promote physical activity at a relaxed pace. This also helps indirectly promote weight loss. Keep in mind that the cost of this epidemic in America – physically, emotionally, and financially – will continue to grow until prevention is more effectively implemented. If you’re struggling with weight loss, call us at Hopkins Health & Wellness today.
