Weight Loss Q & A

Am I a candidate for supervised weight-loss?

Medical weight-loss programs at Isanti Family Chiropractic are designed for people who are considered overweight or obese.

Several factors are considered when determining if you’re a good candidate for the program, including your body-mass index (BMI). BMI is an estimate of your body fat percentage based on your height and weight.

Your BMI will fall within a range, as follows:

  • 18.5 and below: Underweight
  • 18.5-24.9: Normal weight
  • 25-29.9: Overweight
  • 30 and above: Obese

If your BMI falls in the overweight or obese range, you have an increased risk of developing a weight-related medical condition that could have a severe impact on your health.

What are the health conditions associated with being overweight?

Being overweight or obese has a negative impact on nearly all of your body’s systems. Some of the health conditions associated with being overweight include:

  • Several types of cancer
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High triglycerides
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea and other breathing disorders

Carrying extra weight also affects the musculoskeletal system; it puts a strain on your joints and can contribute to neck, shoulder, back, hip, and knee pain, as well as other orthopedic conditions.

How does a supervised weight-loss program work?

An initial consultation and health evaluation is the first step in a weight-loss program at Isanti Family Chiropractic.

Your caring provider takes a detailed health history and conducts an in-depth discussion concerning your weight loss goals and what is involved in a medical weight loss program. Your chiropractor also performs a thorough physical exam.

After your consultation is complete, your provider designs your customized weight loss plan using a combination of therapies to help you develop healthier eating and lifestyle habits, reduce stress, and enhance overall wellness. Your program may include:

  • Nutritional and lifestyle counseling
  • Exercise routines
  • Weight check-ins
  • Spinal adjustments
  • Massage therapy
  • Electronic muscle stimulation
  • Regenerative medicine

Your weight-loss program helps you change your relationship with food and make lifestyle changes that allow you to reach your ideal weight and keep it stable for a lifetime.

Chiropractic care strengthens your body to promote robust health, prevent future injuries, and restore your quality-of-life.
