Thyroid Support

When your thyroid malfunctions or doesn’t function efficiently, you can be left with a hormone imbalance that leaves you with many uncomfortable physical symptoms. These symptoms can become debilitating if they are not addressed.

How does a chiropractor work with Thyroid conditions? Chiropractic care supports the balance of the body and its many systems, including hormone imbalance. Dr. Tiffani Fries has many hours of education specifically on supporting the Thyroid gland and investigating the systems of the body that can contribute to Thyroid dysfunction. The most commonly treated thyroid issue is hypothyroidism which is when your thyroid is underactive and not working properly. Thyroid dysfunction can be debilitating for many women and Dr. Tiffani Fries understands the pain that many women are going through.

Hypothyroidism can also slow your metabolism and weight gain and obesity are common. Those discomforts in the form of pain and mobility loss can be helped with chiropractic adjustments.

What Can You Expect from Thyroid Support?

When you put your thyroid care in the hands of Dr Tiffani Fries , you can expect that your individual case will be evaluated with a thorough examination, metabolic assessments and lab testing.

Another key to treating thyroid problems is proper nutrition and lifestyle changes. Your chiropractor will counsel you on nutritional and lifestyle habits that will improve your quality of life as it relates to your thyroid problems.

You will feel relief from much of the symptoms that come from thyroid conditions. You may even find symptoms of depression and cognitive dysfunction improved. You will be more comfortable following treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

With Hypothyroidism, you may have a reduction in the amount of iodine and selenium that you have in your body. Gastrointestinal issues and impaired liver detoxification can also affect hypothyroidism. Dr. Tiffani Fries will do an intensive intake and examination to see what body systems could be contributing to the hypothyroidism.

There is a condition known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis that can cause these symptoms and more. Hashimoto’s is an autoimmune condition often missed or overlooked and goes undetected. Hashimoto’s is diagnosed by lab testing, which can be ordered by Dr. Tiffani Fries. Dr. Fries has significant training in working with patients with Hashimoto’s and she can co-care with your Primary Care Physician or Endocrinologist for support.

With Hyperthyroidism, the thyroid is overactive and produces too much of the thyroid hormone. This condition can mostly affect your metabolism. People with Hyperthyroidism find that they cannot gain weight. Other symptoms include irritability, abnormal heart rhythms, hyperactivity, mood swings, heat intolerance, and depression.
