Carrying Extra Weight May Bother Colorado Springs Back Pain

Weight loss. Diet. BMI. Activity. Back pain.

How does weight loss and diet, activity and body mass index (BMI), associate to Colorado Springs back pain and its painful interruption of Colorado Springs people’s lives? For some Colorado Springs folks, the concept of weight loss is not novel. Colorado Springs weight loss has likely been suggested many times in their lives. For them, a Colorado Springs weight loss diet meant not eating, not eating what they want, not eating what everyone else eats. The concept of Colorado Springsdiet and Colorado Springs weight loss for Colorado Springsback pain relief may enthuse a Colorado Springs back pain sufferer to lose weight and improve their Colorado Springs diet when a decreased body mass index (BMI) and boosted activity level lead to a better quality of life. Diet and weight loss is not just deprivation anymore; it is often relieving for Colorado Springs back pain.


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss tend to be misunderstood, hard to adhere to, and rejected by some of us who do not like to diet in the traditional sense. Dieting with nutrition in mind is the new Colorado Springs diet plan. Nutrition information research is integral to Colorado Springs chiropractic services at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR.  A study about just how knowledgeable people are about a healthy diet showed that women, higher educated persons, persons of more mature age, and those who have a healthy BMI are more well-informed. Diet-disease relationships and fatty acids obtainable in foods are the most misunderstood. (1) Whole grain diets have a positive effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors superior to a fruit/vegetable diet or grain/fruit/vegetable diet. (2) Another study that set out to test a weight loss diet found that 14 of 15 participants stuck with the program to its conclusion at 12 weeks. 93% of them favored the diet. 92% didn’t feel hungry with it. Fiber was raised by 6.8 grams per day and protein by 5.7 grams per day. Weight loss was 2.2% overall. (3) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR sees these as positive outcomes for any willing Colorado Springs chiropractic patient!


Physical activity helps in weight loss and is encouraged. Sadly, high rates of physical inactivity and associated chronic diseases are continuing to increase globally. Much research showed that physical activity can modify individual behavior. (4) Physical activity and BMI was connected to persistent low back pain. Back pain was worse when physical activity was small and the BMI was elevated.  (5) The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is a supporter47 of physical activity!


Low back pain is linked to being overweight/obese using BMI scores. Sex (male/female) and race/ethnicity affect this relationship, too. Obese white men, obese white women and obese nonwhite women are more likely to have a higher risk of back pain versus overweight, nonwhite men and normal weight nonwhite men and women. (7) Metabolic processes of the spine can be measured. A study revealed that weight-dependent metabolic activity is likely related to inflammation and back pain. (6) In your Colorado Springs chiropractic treatment plan, The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR considers how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
