Carrying Extra Weight May Bother Paramus Back Pain

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

How does weight loss and diet, activity and body mass index (BMI), relate to Paramus back pain and its hurting interruption of Paramus people’s lives? For some Paramus folks, the concept of weight loss is not novel. It has likely been recommended many times in their lives. For them, a Paramus weight loss diet meant not eating, not eating what they want, not eating what everyone else eats. The idea of Paramusdiet and Paramus weight loss for Paramusback pain relief may enthuse a Paramus back pain sufferer to lose weight and improve their Paramus diet when a reduced body mass index (BMI) and improved activity level lead to a better quality of life. Diet and weight loss isn’t just deprivation anymore; it is often relieving for Paramus back pain.


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss are likely to be misunderstood, hard to adhere to, and disregarded by some of us who don’t like to diet in the traditional sense. Dieting with nutrition in mind is the new Paramus diet plan. Nutrition information research is integral to Paramus chiropractic services at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center.  A research report about just how knowledgeable people are about a healthy diet showed that females, higher educated persons, older persons, and those who have a healthy BMI are more well-informed. Diet-disease relationships and fatty acids obtainable in foods are the most mistaken. (1) Whole grain diets have a beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors superior to a fruit/vegetable diet or grain/fruit/vegetable diet. (2) Another study that aimed to test a weight loss diet found that 14 of 15 participants stuck with the program to its end at 12 weeks. 93% of them approved of the diet. 92% didn’t feel hungry with it. Fiber was increased by 6.8 grams per day and protein by 5.7 grams per day. Weight loss was 2.2% overall. (3) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center sees these as positive outcomes for any willing Paramus chiropractic patient!


Physical activity helps in weight loss and is encouraged. Unfortunately, high rates of physical inactivity and associated chronic diseases are continuing to increase globally. Much research demonstrated that physical activity can change individual behavior. (4) Physical activity and BMI was related to persistent low back pain. Back pain was worse when physical activity was small and the BMI was high.  (5) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is a proponent of physical activity!


Low back pain is associated with 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 more 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 showed that weight-dependent metabolic activity is likely related to inflammation and back pain. (6) In your Paramus chiropractic treatment plan, Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center looks at how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
