Losing Weight: It’s Good for Your Back!

By January 29, 2018 No Comments

It’s the new year and the gym is experiencing record attendance, mostly due to New Year’s resolutions. Those of you who’ve stayed in the gym year-round can find solace in the fact that 73% of resolution makers end up quitting before their goals are reached, according to BodyBuilding.com. The same study asserts that 42% of people who vow to get fit say it’s too difficult to follow a diet and workout regimen.

Most people think about losing weight for their look, but people who could stand to lose weight should consider it more seriously for health reasons, including for the sake of your back and spine.

Think of being overweight like packing a bunch of your friends into your car back in high school (or when you’re in high school — kids and adolescents make up a considerable portion of our patient base needing chiropractic and orthopedic care). Think of your intervertebral discs like your shock absorbers causing pressure and accentuating spinal curvature, increasing the risk for injury.

What You Can Do

Stretching (whether it’s yoga, or incorporating a morning and evening stretch) can go a long way towards managing and alleviating back pain. Exercising with your back in mind is a great way to lose weight and be body-conscious at the same time.

But if back or spinal pain persists, it’s important to do something about it.
