If you are overweight and have been told that the extra weight is making your back pain, hip pain, knee pain, etc. worse or if you just want to lose weight to feel better, we would love to help you achieve your goals. Our Dietitian/PA-C will work with you directly to create a personalized plan. We aim to create lifestyle changes that will allow you to avoid temporary weight loss issues too often found with many diets. We strive to help you not only lose the weight in a healthy way, but also keep the weight off.
Personalized plans are important because there are so many factors that need to be taken into consideration. Things like pre-existing conditions and the medications that are needed with those conditions, profession, schedules, family life, preferences, food restrictions all can become a barrier to success. We work around these things that we often times can’t change.
Many medical conditions are related to or directly caused by excess weight:
- High Blood Pressure
- High Cholesterol
- Metabolic Syndrome
- Back Pain
- Neck Pain
- Hip Pain
- Knee and Ankle Pain
- Plantar Fasciitis
Excess weight is also associated with low energy, depression, hormonal disturbances, difficulty sleeping, and sometimes difficulty performing daily activities. Our goal is to start you on the weight loss journey and be there to support you until you reach your goal. We also offer weight loss adjunct therapies to help you be successful.
