Frequently Asked Questions

The technical definitions of being overweight or obese are having a Body Mass Index (BMI) greater than 24.9 is considered overweight while a BMI exceeding 29 is considered obese. Keep in mind that a man and a woman who share the same BMI will differ in the amount of body fat they have. Women traditionally carry a greater amount of body fat than men.

A BMI is a simple formula that considers your height and weight. Studies have shown that those with higher BMI are much more likely to suffer from a variety of obesity-related diseases. A BMI can help your doctor determine the role that your weight might be playing in your health. A BMI of less than 18.5 is considered underweight, 18.5 to 24.9 is considered normal healthy weight, 25 to 29.9 is considered overweight, and a BMI greater than 30 is considered obese.

Being obese puts you at greater risk for a number of serious diseases and health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. The greater weight can also put stress on your joints and promote osteoarthritis and other conditions.

The whole treatment including adjustments, nutritional counseling, behavior modification and exercise are known to promote weight loss. While weight loss is never easy, it might come a little faster if you are focused on all four aspects of the chiropractic treatment program.
