Control Neck and Back Pain with Medical Weight Loss

in Pinellas Park and St. Pete

A medical weight loss program, combined with nutrition and lifestyle counseling as well as chiropractic care, can be your pain management.

Dr. Kevin Lee, chiropractor and owner of Gulf Coast Rehabilitation and Wellness Center, noticed many of his patients were suffering from conditions like low back pain that could be treated or vastly reduced with exercise, diet, and weight reduction.

“So many of my patients were taking a pill for this and a pill for that, and I’m thinking they just need a prescription for weight loss,” said Dr. Lee. “A medical weight loss program combined with chiropractic care and nutrition counseling has led so many to a pain-free life off medication.”

Chiropractic care focuses on natural treatments curving away from surgery, narcotics, or other invasive treatment methods.

“Too often pain management is handled with a short-term fix like drugs or high-risk treatment like surgery instead of actually fixing the underlying problem which could be as simple as diet and exercise,” said Dr. Lee.weight loss healthy choices

Dr. Lee’s statement is backed by growing evidence that more and more Americans are addicted to prescription medications year over year. Drugs are cheaper for most people and covered by nearly all health insurance plans. It is much easier to pop a pill than it is to undergo a lifestyle change, not to mention less time-consuming.

There seems to be a tangible shift in the climate of healthcare away from the easy and convenient fixes and back toward the natural, safe, and healthy.

“I hope to see more insurance companies covering natural treatments that would prevent diabetes and heart disease from forming in the first place instead of paying for the treatment patients need after the diseases develop,” he said.

Extra Weight is a Problem

Many folks struggle to maintain a healthy body weight as they age, especially as metabolisms slow down and hormones change. Carrying too much weight is a sign of inflammation and stress of your body. Treatment of the serious conditions caused by obesity like diabetes, heart disease, and cancer can get expensive. Ignoring the issues can cause them to worsen to the point of affecting your quality of life.

The majority of patients are not surprised to hear they need to lose weight. Most, however, do not realize the degree to which most of their health problems are caused by carrying the extra weight. Most do not realize how much better they will feel once they shed the weight. The following symptoms are a sure indicator you’ve reached an unhealthy weight:

•          Lack of muscle tone in your limbs, abdomen, and back

•          Loose or extra skin in previously tight areas of your body

•          A buildup of fatty tissue around your middle section

•          Less energy and vitality

•          More prone to sedentary activities (sitting, watching TV)

•          Your clothes feel tighter or no longer fit

Hormone Therapy for Men and Women: An Answer to Wellness

Hormone Therapy for Men and Women: An Answer to Wellness

Posted From: http://gulfcoastrehab.us/blog/b_66609_hormone_therapy_for_men_and_women_an_answer_to_wellness.html

Your hormone levels decrease over time as your body ages. As a result, you may begin to experience some unsavory symptoms that disrupt your daily life. The answer? Replace your body’s natural hormones for a return to balanced and normal levels.

Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is available at your local Tampa Bay, FL, chiropractor’s office. HRT helps to decrease the effects of aging, extend life expectancy, prevent illness related to aging, and improve quality of life. HRT benefits both men and women.

Bio-identical Hormones

Bio-identical hormones are built to imitate the natural hormones we produce in our own bodies. They are identical and so are able to mimic the chemical reactions natural hormones cause in the body with few, if any, side effects.

These hormones are made in a lab using natural compounds from plants like soybeans and wild yams. Scientists create molecules chemically identical to the molecules our bodies make including testosterone and progesterone among others. You can safely ingest bio-identical hormones through injections, gels, creams, patches, and tablets.

Your local Pinellas Park chiropractor’s office, Gulf Coast Rehabilitation and Wellness Center, can discuss whether HRT is the right choice for you.

Benefits for Men and Women

Hormone imbalances affect men and women differently requiring different types of HRT.

Men

Hormone imbalance symptoms in men may manifest as:

  • Appearance – increased weight, loss of muscle, and thinning hair
  • Psyche – mood swings, depression, memory loss, and reduced cognitive function
  • Sex drive – disinterest, reduced libido, and erectile dysfunction
  • Disease and illness – headaches, osteoporosis, and heart disease
  • Interrupted sleep patterns – fatigue and insomnia

Low Testosterone Levels

The average man begins to lose 10 percent of testosterone production every 10 years beginning around the age of 25. There is no clear beginning to this reduction and it varies among individuals. There is some debate about whether “male menopause” actually exists as some medical professionals consider this just aging in general. Whatever the label, testosterone replacement therapy can correct the imbalance.

Physical changes are gradual since the decline in testosterone levels are slow. However, the changes eventually reach a point of negatively affecting your quality of life and your health. Decreased testosterone weaken your skeletal structure and can cause heart disease as well as other serious health conditions.

Male Andropause

Research shows that a man’s testosterone level reduces by about 50 percent between the ages of 25 and 50. Men can experience symptoms similar to female menopause during these years. The condition is called andropause. While women cease menstruation to mark the beginning of menopause, men do not have any such clear signal to mark their condition. Both menopause and andropause are the result of a hormonal imbalance, however, which is estrogen for females and testosterone for males.  

Men may reduce the symptoms of andropause by replacing their testosterone levels to natural levels. Benefits of HRT include improved:

·         Sexual performance and libido

·         Energy

·         Mood and self confidence

·         Brain function

·         Muscle strength

·         Bone density

·         Well-being

Women

Women may experience the following hormone imbalance symptoms:

  • Appearance – increased weight, loss of muscle, and thinning hair
  • Psyche – mood swings, depression, memory loss, and reduced cognitive function
  • Sex drive – disinterest and reduced libido
  • Irregular Periods
  • Headaches
  • Interrupted sleep patterns – fatigue and insomnia
  • Hot Flashes
  • Osteoporosis

Perimenopause

Perimenopause is the transitional stage for women when levels of estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone are in a state of constant fluctuation causing a host of unpleasant symptoms. Hormone levels can be shifted by exercise, stress, diet, and other environmental factors. HRT relieves symptoms caused by hormonal imbalances, and lead to a longer, happier life for women.

Post Menopause

Post Menopause occurs approximately 24 to 36 months after a women’s last period and following perimenopause. Women experiencing post menopause may find their symptoms diminish somewhat. Ovaries begin to shrink, but continue to produce testosterone – vital for energy, bone and muscle, and sex drive.

Symptoms caused by menopause do end eventually. The problem is you are put at risk for heart disease, osteoporosis, and other serious conditions while you wait as the time frame for how long menopause and post menopause will last is uncertain. 

The benefits of HRT include:

  • Increased muscle
  • Decreased body fat
  • Increases libido and sexual function
  • Bone density preservation
  • Reduce wrinkles and thinning of hair
  • Decrease cardiovascular disease risk
  • Increased energy, well-being, and mood
