Being overweight is not fun, but it is also not something that is easy for most overweight people to change either. I heard some people talking one day about the meal I had ordered at a fast food restaurant, and it actually made me so ashamed, even though I rarely eat at places like that. I knew I had to make changes though so I could feel better about myself. I went home and did some research, and I was very surprised to see that seeing a Corte Madera chiropractor would be one of the most effective ways for me to get on the right track.
I had no idea that a chiropractor could even help an overweight person other than one who has back issues. While I did not have back problems because of my weight, I did feel pain in other parts of my body, particularly my legs. A chiropractor is so much more than just a doctor for back problems though. Chiropractic care entails nutritional guidance as well, and that is exactly what I was able to get when I decided to take the plunge. I was in for the shock of my life too at that first appointment.
I had to answer a lot of questions, and I also had to subject myself to a physical examination. When the chiropractor told me that my back was not in alignment, and that could actually be a part of my problem, I was truly shocked about it. She gave me my first adjustment that day, and she also talked at great length to me about nutrition. I went back once a week for a couple of months, then I was going just once every two or three weeks. It works too, because I was able to not only lose weight because of the chiropractic care, but I have managed to keep it off this time too!
