Joint Pain, Back Pain, and Obesity

Joint and back pain can impact your ability to live confidently and to the fullest. Joint and back pain, if not a direct consequence of being overweight, is only exacerbated by it. A common comorbidity associated with obesity, joint pain can dramatically stunt our mobility, making it even harder to keep active and lose weight.

How is Joint Pain and Back Pain Related to Obesity?

In short, our joints carry the weight of our bodies. The more pressure that we put on these joints the more they have to deal with. If overloaded, the extra stress can cause and exacerbate pain. It is therefor no surprise that those with a BMI higher than it should be also have higher rates of arthritis. What this does mean, however, is that we also have a way to combat and relieve the pain caused by this: weight loss.

As touched on. joint and back pain can make exercise more difficult. That doesn’t mean, however, that we cannot help. As medical weight loss experts we have several procedures that facilitate weight loss. These include the Orbera 365 and Allurion gastric balloon placements, as well as bariatric surgeries such as the gastric sleeve and gastric bypass. Each procedure is completed by a celebrated aftercare package.
