SAN ANTONIO, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - San Antonio chiropractor Dr. Donald Phillips announced that his practice provides nutritional counseling and warns patients about the dangers of fad diets. Dr. Phillips promotes total body wellness, and believes that an important part of a healthy lifestyle is balanced nutrition. He counsels patients who are recovering from injuries about the best foods to promote internal healing, as well as balanced nutrition choices for overall health. More information about nutrition counseling and Dr. Phillips' practice, Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, is available on the website http://www.drphillipschiro.com/.
Dr. Donald Phillips, a San Antonio chiropractor with Dr. Phillips Chiropractic, Nutrition and Wellness, announced that he provides nutrition counseling for pain management and long-term weight management. Dr. Phillips said, "Nutrition counseling is an important component to wellness and essential to healing following an injury. Many people get caught up in fad diets that lack essential nutritional components and are not right for their body type or recovery needs."
In addition to working as a chiropractor, Dr. Phillips is also a nutritionist who is trained to provide nutrition counseling services to patients. Dr. Phillips nutrition counseling focuses on whole body wellness as well as injury-specific conditions.
"I make specific dietary recommendations to patients who are struggling with chronic pain, such as back pain, neck pain and headaches," said Dr. Phillips. "For example, antioxidants combat free radicals that lead to inflammation and can worsen chronic musculoskeletal pain. For patients recovering from an injury, high protein diets help the body rebuild damaged muscles and soft tissues. The right balance of nutrients and supplements really makes a difference when it comes to an individual's recovery."
The San Antonio nutritionist also provides general nutrition advice for patients who wish to maintain their weight and enhance their health.
"We all know that eating fast food and guzzling soft drinks is bad for the body," said Dr. Phillips. "But with so many dietary fads and foods being touted by the media as 'miracle super foods,' it can be tough to know what one should be eating. As a nutritionist, it is my job to evaluate your lifestyle and wellness needs and create a nutrition plan tailored specifically for your body."
Dr. Phillips stressed that nutrition is just one component of a healthy lifestyle. He provides chiropractic care for non-invasive pain management for back pain, neck pain and headache. He also offers spinal decompression as a treatment for herniated discs and lumbar back pain.
"Whole body wellness is all about healing the body from the inside out through natural, non-invasive treatments," said Dr. Phillips. "Nutrition is an important piece in the puzzle, as is chiropractic care like spinal decompression. When we correct the underlying cause of pain and feed our body the right balance of nutrients, we can optimize our health. Our patients frequently report having more energy, suffering from fewer illnesses, and being more active than they have ever been."
