Weight Loss and Back Pain

People who suffer from weight problems usually have back problems due to the extra weight they carry around which impacts on the spine and back. Other problems associated with obesity include fatigue and breathing difficulties.

For people who are overweight, attention to overall weight loss is very important as every pound adds strain to the muscles and ligaments in the back. The spine can become tilted and stressed unevenly.

The extra weight carried by a person can pull the pelvis forward and strain the lower back creating lower back pain.

Patients who carry more weight around the mid-section are at a greater risk of obesity related health problems such as lower back pain.
