Dietitian services focus on weight management for pain relief and how the diet can impact pain. You can attend nutrition counseling with a registered dietitian, who will teach portion control and moderation and will serve as a personal motivator and resource throughout your weight-loss journey. We focus on positive, healthy lifestyle changes that promote lifelong health over short quick-fix diets. We don’t just counsel for weight loss; we take the entire patient into consideration, helping him/her to manage his/her weight in relation to other health problems, such as diabetes, hypertension, irritable bowel syndrome, or chronic kidney disease. During the counseling session, you will receive a personalized weight-loss plan that meets not only your physical needs but fits your lifestyle as well.
The WVU Medicine Center for Integrative Pain Management’s on-site registered dietitian is Amanda Pratt, RD, LD.
