Most people know that obesity contributes to the development of heart diseases, diabetes, high blood pressure and colon cancer. Did you know that obesity has a connection with back pain?
Whether obesity is the cause or aggravator to lower back pain, it is clear that the excess weight does no good to the back. When a person is obese, any extra weight creates added pressure as well as added work for the muscles. From a statistical point of view, there are multiple research studies that indicate a strong relationship between excess weight and lower back pain.
