Preventing and Treating Obesity with Chiropractic and Foot Care
It’s no secret that obesity is a growing problem– and according to the World Health Organization, more than 300 million people worldwide are overweight or obese. Along with other health complications associated with being overweight, such as heart disease and diabetes, the body and feet can also be negatively affected. But we can help! Chiropractic care along with the custom-made support of Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers can work to prevent and treat the conditions associated with obesity.
Extra weight applies more pressure on the feet and can cause the arches to collapse, leading to joint and back pain. The deterioration of the joints, also known as osteoarthritis, is the leading cause for knee and hip replacement surgery. These conditions can be prevented with the help of laser therapy and Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers from Foot Levelers.
Laser therapy provides red and infrared photons to stimulate your cells and promote healing. Swelling and inflammation are reduced and light energy is converted to biochemical energy, causing healing of damaged tendons, joints, and tissue.
Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers support all three arches of the foot and help align the feet, ankles, knees, hips and spine to provide a balanced foundation for the body. This custom-made postural support also helps to reduce back and joint pain. Stabilizers are an important adjunct to your care because they help your chiropractic adjustments hold longer, helping prolong your wellness.
When your feet and body feel better, you are more likely to be active! It is difficult to exercise when your joints hurt. A healthy diet and regular exercise are both important factors to help you lead a healthy lifestyle.
