What Does A Nutritionist Do?: Tips from a Chiropractor in Longview, WA

At Family Chiropractic Care in Longview, WA, our team of professionals led by Dr. Rick Still believes in whole body wellness, which means we do not solely treat a client’s presenting condition, issue or ailment, such as back pain, a pulled shoulder muscle or poor posture. Each system of the body is interconnected and each must be in a state of good health in order to support the functioning of the body as a whole. As such, we offer comprehensive services that promote overall health, which naturally includes a nutritionist who conducts nutritional assessments and creates nutritional plans to support musculoskeletal health.

A nutritionist looks at a client’s medical record and reviews an itemized list of the client’s daily intake of foods, beverages, water, supplements and medications as part of a nutritional assessment. Additionally, other tests may be ordered to check for any vitamin and mineral deficiencies that may be present. Vitamin and mineral deficiencies can lead to muscle cramping, increased risk of injury and chronic fatigue, which is similar to the effects of dehydration. This complete nutritional profile analysis allows the nutritionist to develop a picture of the client’s current nutritional health. Armed with this wealth of information, the nutritionist can then create a personalized nutritional program that fills in any nutritional gaps, provides clear direction on how to achieve proper nutritional intake and hydration and offers helpful tips to stay on track.
