Are you overweight or obese?

Studies have shown an increase in waist circumference is associated with:
  • Lower back pain
  • Joint pain (hips and knees)
  • Decline in mobility and agility (walking, stair climbing, and chair rise)
  • Tissue atrophy (result of limited mobility)

What is the cause of your pain?

For many, this question can be very difficult to answer as the exact cause of their pain remains unknown. Most associate pain with some traumatic injury or event, but there are more temperate causes of pain, like excess weight and/or body mass, that many fail to recognize as a contributing agent to their pain. For overweight and obese individuals, a tremendous amount of mechanical stress is exerted to joints, tendons, ligaments, and skeletal muscle, even when performing routine tasks. The severity of pain and tissue degeneration is only increased the longer a person struggles with excess girth.

Abdominal obesity, measured using waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio, has been identified as a predictor for disability in older adults.

If you are struggling with excess girth along with pain, you are not alone. According to a medical study published in 2007, obese subjects are 4 times more likely to develop osteoarthritis, which can generate debilitating pain. A separate study published in 2007 reported that waist circumference is a predictor of disability among older adults, and that a larger waistline increases a person's likelihood of disability later on in life [2]. There is no doubt that obesity and pain are tightly interrelated.

Unfortunately, pain medications and physical therapy are unable to successfully manage the pain if a person's excess girth is overlooked. Accordingly, successful pain management is possible only when the individual is committed to removing the extra mass. A multifaceted approach to pain management is not limited to obese individuals, but overweight individuals as well. Understanding that waist circumference predicts mobility and agility disability in old age, proactive strategies to reduce your waist circumference now may perhaps decrease the risk of disability in older age according Dr. Guallar-Castillon, author of the 2007 medical publication.

Pain is certainly a complicated disorder, and simply masking it with pain medication or trying to work through it via physiotherapy fails to address the underlining causes of the pain. As the prevalence of pain increases with a person's body mass index, it becomes increasingly apparent that a person's excess mass may be a major contributing factor to their pain - and true pain relief only comes when the excess mass is shed.
