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
- 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.
