By staying in your suggested weight range you will relieve the pressure on your back and joints. Relieving this pressure will increase your range of motion and better enable you to move. Exercise is but one component of weight loss. Dietary changes on a consistent basis will promote weight loss over a period of time. It is estimated that decreasing you diet by as little as 100 calories per day will result in a double-digit loss over a year. Something as simple as adding an artificial or natural sweetener instead of sugar to your daily coffee would do the trick.
Chiropractic treatment will work in concert with these activities. Your chiropractor will also work with you on motivation strategies and some simple stretching techniques you may do in between your adjustments.
