Why Wait Until the New Year? 5 Good Reasons to Start Your Medical Weight Loss Program Now

Why Wait Until the New Year? 5 Good Reasons to Start Your Medical Weight Loss Program Now

Lots of people start trying to lose weight after the holidays. However, if you need to lose weight for medical reasons, it might not be a good idea to wait until the New Year.

At Integrated Spine & Pain Care, our team of interventional pain management physicians offers personalized medical weight loss support. We work with new and existing patients from locations in Farmingdale and Deer Park, New York.

Here are five good reasons to start your medical weight loss journey now. 

1. Take the pressure off your joints

Often, pain centers around your joints, including the multiple joints of your spine. One way to take pressure off your joints is to pursue healthy weight loss. Excess pounds act as a stress multiplier on your joints, causing symptoms to flare.

Every pound you lose significantly reduces the load on struggling joints, so it’s worth getting started working toward moderate weight loss as soon as possible. The team at Integrated Spine & Pain Care can help you with your customized weight loss plan.

2. Improve your heart health

Heart health is a major contributor to a long and healthy life. When you’re obese or overweight, heart problems can worsen, reducing your quality of life as you age, and even potentially cutting into your lifespan.

At Integrated Spine & Pain Care, we work with medical weight loss patients to put together healthy diet and exercise plans that improve your cardiac condition. With nutrition planning, dietary supplementation, and healthy exercise, you can see real results.

3. Get better quality sleep

There’s scientific evidence of a bidirectional link between weight and sleep. Not getting enough quality sleep can impede your ability to lose weight. And, being overweight or obese increases your risk of sleep disorders like sleep apnea.

When you lose weight, your sleep quality improves. Your provider at Integrated Spine & Pain Care can also check for underlying hormone disorders that may be affecting both your ability to sleep well and your ability to lose weight.

4. Reduce your risk of chronic health conditions

When you’re overweight or obese, your risk of several chronic health conditions goes up. This includes type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), osteoarthritis of the knee and hip, and other potentially serious health complications.

That means that losing weight isn’t just a question of looking better or fitting into smaller clothes. Medically supervised weight loss may be necessary for you to protect your health and long life. And, that means that there’s no good reason to wait another month before getting started.

5. Improve your quality of life

Your provider at Integrated Spine & Pain Care monitors your progress throughout your medical weight loss journey, offering support and advice as needed to keep you on track to meet your weight loss goals. As you complete goals, your provider talks to you about setting new ones to continuously improve your health and wellness.

Instead of struggling with weight loss on your own, work with our team for real, effective weight loss. You may be amazed at how much your quality of life improves after healthy weight loss.
