How is Obesity Directly Correlated with Lower Back Pain?
According to the Centers for Disease Control, over one-third (35.7%) of Americans are considered obese. This number has been increasing in the last few years – making health problems related to obesity a large issue. To be considered ‘obese,’ you have an excess of body fat, which can greatly increase the risk of health issues. If you’re unsure if you’re considered a heavy individual, we’ve created an easy BMI calculator to help you understand what your current weight/fat ratio is.
Negative health effects of becoming obese include:
- High blood pressure
- Cancer (breast, pancreas, colon, rectum, esophagus, and endometrium)
- Heart disease
- Sleeping issues (sleep apnea)
Aside from the conditions listed above, another common negative health effect of being plus size is having spinal/back issues. It’s been proven that the higher your BMI level is, the higher chance you have of experiencing lumbar back pain or injury. Carrying around extra weight can take a huge toll on the mechanisms of your back, especially your spinal discs, muscles, and bones. This excess weight shifts your center of gravity, resulting in your back working harder to hold your body in an upright position.
