What Every Fitness Lover Ought To Know About Losing Weight

Excess weight puts increased pressure on the spine, especially the lower back. A large portion of the patients that seek out chiropractic care suffer from some form of back pain. While chiropractic adjustments and associated therapies can help back pain symptoms and aid in healing, lifestyle changes are also quite important, particularly weight loss. The more individuals can near their ideal weight, the easier it becomes to treat and often eliminate the back pain.

The Importance

Research shows that obesity contributes to back pain.

Research has shown that excess weight and obesity do increase the risk of suffering from low back pain. A meta-analysis of the research on obesity and low back pain found that overweight and obese individuals were most likely to seek care for low back pain, including chronic back pain.

The spine can wear down.

The spine is strong, but it is also delicate. The vertebrae are linked and supported by soft tissues, like discs, ligaments, and tendons.

These soft tissues make it possible to move, flex, twist and turn in a variety of ways, allowing your body to be quite mobile. But these soft tissues are prone to wear and tear.

Even a healthy body will experience wear and tear as it ages. When you add extra weight, though, you increase the wear and tear – and become more susceptible to injuries.

It increases damage to the spine.

If you have ever carried an object for an extended period of time, like a bag of groceries up and down stairs or a jug of liquid across a parking lot, you know how it can wear you down. While you may feel fine at first, the longer you go, the more tired you become.

Extra body weight is something you carry around with you everywhere you go.

  • Across the parking lot.
  • Going Up the stairs.
  • Even sitting in a chair.

The structural components of your body, including your joints and the muscles that support them, are constantly forced to handle the extra pressure.

All the extra pressure transfers force through your joints, including your spine. Over time, the force will do damage. Discs will wear out faster, which can lead to degenerative disc disease and back pain.

Injuries can worsen.

The extra weight makes every accident and injury more damaging. Slipping and catching yourself, which may have been okay before, could now pull or tear muscles and tendons. Every time you are in an accident, your body will have a harder time maintaining safe alignment.

Common Injuries

1. Herniated disc

A herniated disc occurs when the tough outer layer of the disc is torn, allowing the soft inner layer to protrude. The protrusion can put pressure on nerves in the spine.

2. Pulled and torn soft tissues.

Excess weight makes it more likely that you will pull or tear muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

3. Low back pain

The lower back, or lumbar spine, is the part of the spine where most of the pressure is placed from excess weight. That is why low back pain is the most common form of injury we treat in overweight patients.

How It Helps

Every pound you lose is one less pound your body must carry. The closer you get to your optimal weight, the easier it will be for your body to support your spine. When you get chiropractic adjustments, they will be more likely to remain in place. A healthy weight makes chiropractic care more effective.
