Fitness & Nutritional Counseling
Nutrition Counseling in Pleasanton, CA
At The Pleasant Chiropractor, we believe that providing a whole health approach to chiropractic medicine will provide our clients with the best possible results from their treatment plan. Here, we aim to treat imbalances that lead to both physical and mental issues that can lead to chronic pain, fatigue, and so much more. Many patients come to us suffering for years with chronic pain. Most have some physical impediment that is exacerbated by a poor diet and exercise plan. A common example is lower back pain or sciatica that stems from obesity or excess fat around their midsection. While chiropractic care can address the misalignments and subluxations, there is another factor that needs to be addressed, diet and exercise. Our goal is to get to the root causes of a patient’s health issue and help them develop a game plan to get their life back on track, the healthy way!
Fitness Counseling in Pleasanton, CA
Just like nutrition counseling, we know that to help a patient truly achieve their goal of living the best lifestyle possible, fitness counseling is important. Many patients understand the general concept of exercise and nutrition. We’ve all heard the calories in vs. calories out, but there is a lot more to it than that. Over the years, we’ve seen a number of sports or fitness related injuries through our door, and it has to do with improper technique. Whether it is running, weightlifting, or a sports related injury, often with proper form and technique, we can avoid these injuries ensuring our bodies can handle the physical stress placed on it.
Our goal is to provide our patients with the tools, resources, and self-confidence by helping them gain muscle tone, strength, stamina, and overall emotional wellbeing associated with good nutrition and exercise. We strive to educate our clients on proper technique, equipment, and so much more so that they can avoid injury. Often times, we find the real benefit from our services is reduced stress, depression, better immune function, and more. We help our patients design a personalize fitness and wellness plan that promotes a healthy lifestyle, one that they can ease into to achieve their goals!
