Weight management is sometimes placed on the bottom of the list when patients are developing a pain management plan. Weight loss does not offer instant relief, but it should be part of a long term plan for healthy living. Carrying around extra pounds can impact how much a person hurts. Extra weight seems to increase levels of inflammation throughout the body, but losing a few pounds can really help with the aches and pains.
The Health Effect of Extra Weight
People who are overweight or obese are at an increased risk for many serious diseases and health conditions. Some of the risks include high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, and body pain just to name a few. Weight loss can be very hard because it involves making changes in physical activity and food choices. The best way to begin is to make a few small steps towards a healthy lifestyle.
