Any aches or pain that you are experiencing could be preventing you from losing weight or staying motivated. We’ve found that joint and muscle problems can be a cause of lack of exercise and weight gain, and having pain while exercising certainly isn’t a motivator to exercise more.
In addition to offering some of the most advanced weight loss techniques, at Empire Medical Center, we proudly provide general chiropractic services. With the goal of treating your pain and getting you back on track to a healthy lifestyle, our chiropractic professionals treat everything from constant and persistent pain to the occasional alignment.
Misaligned joints, which are generally located along the spinal column, can have negative effects on muscles, nerves and even organs.
Chiropractic treatment offers a non-invasive, drug-free solution to many pain problems and the recovery time is much quicker than that of surgery or other invasive procedures.
Our chiropractic team at Empire Medical works to address all of your concerns and answer any questions you may have about your chiropractic treatment. Our ultimate goal is to correct the problem in the long term. Call our office today to schedule an appointment with one of our professionals.
How Chiropractic Care Aids Weight Loss
Weight loss is a journey that takes time and effort. There is no real “quick fix.” However, there are a variety of reasons that people struggle to lose weight, that have nothing to do with your favorite pastry shop being within walking distance of your house. Back pain afflicts more than 50 percent of people, persisting for more than five years! Back pain, or any pain in general, makes it difficult for most people to get out of bed in the morning, ready to take on the day, full of healthy meal prep and high-intensity exercise.
The Relationship Between Pain and Weight
Pain is a contributing factor to weight gain. Those who suffer from chronic pain are more prone to weight gain because pain makes it more difficult to engage in physical activity, contribute to poor sleep patterns, and makes it difficult to eat healthy, as the body will seek high-energy (and typically high-fat) foods. For those who suffer from chronic back or hip pain, a sedentary lifestyle seems par for the course. Poor posture and weight gain only tend to aggravate the pain, and thus, the circle of pain continues.
How Chiropractic Care Can Help
Chiropractic care — is not a quick-fix weight-loss treatment — can help to correct misalignments in the spine and joints which helps not only reduce pain, but also helps to improve blood flow and neuron signals that are responsible for brain-body communication. With a chiropractic evaluation, you can identify any physical reasons that it is difficult to work out or lose weight. A chiropractic adjustment may be just the thing you need to find the relief from pain that makes it difficult for you to keep on track with your weight loss journey.

Benefits of Chiropractic Treatment
Chiropractic adjustments offer a wide variety of benefits, for weight loss and otherwise. Those who suffer from chronic pain are often resolved to long-term pain management that includes medication and a sedentary lifestyle. A visit to your chiropractor can offer a holistic approach to managing symptoms and regaining your life. In addition to reducing hip, neck, and back pain, chiropractic treatments offer other wonderful benefits as well. Here are just a few:
A chiropractic adjustment can help correct blood pressure issues by decreasing pressure in the spine, including on the vascular system. Correcting alignment in the spine helps correct blood flow throughout the body which helps reduce headaches and anxiety, improve fatigue and dizziness, and promotes healthy weight loss.
A common problem caused by jobs that require extended periods of sitting, standing, or bending and lifting — nearly every job — can cause pressure in the spine. One of the long-term effects of pressure is a condition called sciatica, which is caused by pressure on your sciatic nerves. With a chiropractic alignment, your sciatica — that causes shooting pain, numbing, and loss of use in your lower back and leg(s) — could be corrected, relieving pain and improving movement.
With a chiropractic treatment, inflammation is reduced and blood flow is improved, which can result in improved athletic performance. Not only are you able to move more freely and pain-free, but energy levels can also be dramatically improved. An increased ability to engage in physical activity helps you to lose weight, have a better outlook on life, improve mood, and be more engaged in your life.
Other benefits of chiropractic care include:
- Improve vertigo or dizziness
- Boost immune function
- Reduce acid reflux
- Improve sleep
- Reduce headaches
- Reduce joint pain
- Reduce muscle tension
