Nutrition & Weight Loss
Fenton Family Chiropractic wants to help you manage your pain without expensive surgery, lengthy recovery periods and potentially dangerous prescription drugs. Our St. Louis area clinic uses a total body approach to managing your neck and back pain, an approach that focuses on nutrition and lifestyle management as well as chiropractic care.
Our Fenton chiropractic clinic believes that maintaining an appropriate weight and good nutrition are essential to overall wellness. In addition, reducing any excess weight you may be carrying means less stress on your spine and joints, and it can help get rid of such chronic conditions as high blood pressure and diabetes. We work with each of our patients to create a roadmap for a healthy lifestyle, including nutrition advice. We tell you which foods to eat and which vitamins and supplements to take to help you return to good health. We also look at such often overlooked issues like what chair you use for work, what shoes you wear and other things that can cause you long-term back and neck pain.
In addition to nutrition and weight loss counseling, we suggest a variety of strengthening exercises and a general wellness program of exercise to augment your weight loss program and to help maintain your weight once you've reached your goal. Strengthening exercises help support the skeleton and thus make it easier to manage your headaches and back and neck pain. Our total wellness approach looks at your entire body and lifestyle, not just your current symptoms. Our chiropractor sits down with you to develop a plan that addresses your back pain or headaches without invasive measures.
Acupuncture has also been proven to help in reaching and maintaining a healthy weight. Dr. Freihaut is certified and licensed in acupuncture, an age-old technique that uses tiny needles in strategic points to alleviate stress and other triggers to overeating.
Fenton chiropractor, Dr. Freihaut emphasizes a total wellness approach to family health and achieving overall well-being.
