Weight Control

Along with treating illnesses and disease, Dr. Adams helps you actively prevent them. Progressive Integrated Healthcare of Dallas offers both holistic and medical healthcare services to maintain your overall health and prevent future problems and conditions from developing. Dr. Adams also offers health counseling and medication for patients who wish to lose weight.

Weight Control and Diabetes Care

Dr. Adams’s background as a family nurse practitioner allows him to provide healthcare services for weight control, diabetes, blood pressure, and other conditions. Our Dallas clinic approaches weight control care with the understanding that drugs and diets are not long-term solutions for weight problems; in fact, they may hinder the long-term success of your fitness and weight goals.

As a licensed chiropractor, Dr. Adams promotes your body’s optimal fitness health by focusing on nutrition and lifestyle. As a medical provider, Dr. Adams can write any prescriptions necessary to properly give you a jumpstart on your weight loss journey, helping you get to your ideal weight and fitness level, successfully, for the long-term.

 

Weight Control Facts

160 million Americans are obese or overweight, and the number seems to be growing every year. Carrying too much weight puts undue stress on the body, its joints and bones, and its internal organs. It can also lead to premature death due to strokes, heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. That’s not even taking into account the emotional burden it can place on the patient.

The four main factors that determine a person’s weight are:

  • For weight loss, you must have a nutritious meal plan with a daily caloric deficit.
  • Movement is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. It has been shown to improve mental and physical health.
  • Obesity tends to run in families, and some groups are more predisposed than others.
  • Medical Conditions. Hypothyroidism, hormonal imbalances, and depression can all lead to unhealthy weight gain.

Our Integrated Approach to Weight Control

Ultimately, even with a genetic component, obesity can be overcome with a healthy lifestyle. Our team is well-versed in breaking down the barriers that keep patients from eating a healthy diet, moving and exercising. If pain is the issue, we can help with that. Dr. Adams can set up a treatment plan featuring massage, physical therapy, spinal realignment, and even pain medications if they are needed.

We start off each weight control patient with a physical examination. Lab tests may be ordered to confirm any suspected diagnoses and to make sure the patient’s blood chemistry and glucose levels are normal. We take a thorough medical history to help us get to the root cause of the weight gain and find out if genetics or underlying medical problems are playing a role.

The next step is the formulation of a treatment plan by Dr. Adams. His licensing as a chiropractor and a nurse practitioner allow him to take a multi-faceted approach to weight control treatment. Patients are counseled on diet and healthy lifestyle choices, given physiotherapy to reduce pain and improve range of motion, and treated for any medical conditions that might be contributing to weight gain.

If being overweight has caused your health to decline, you can trust us to find and treat the complications. We screen for diabetes and high blood pressure, which often go hand in hand with obesity. If you have diabetes that isn’t under good control, Dr. Adams will prescribe medications and help you manage your blood glucose levels. Blood pressure can be improved through a combination of lifestyle changes, chiropractic adjustment and relaxing massage therapy.

Our team will be with you every step of the way as you move toward your healthy weight goal. If you ever feel that a component of your treatment plan isn’t right for you, please feel free to let us know so that we can make changes.
