Carrying Extra Weight May Bother Eugene Back Pain

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

How does weight loss and diet, activity and body mass index (BMI), relate to Eugene back pain and its painful interruption of Eugene people’s lives? For some Eugene folks, the concept of weight loss is not new. It has likely been recommended many times in their lives. For them, a Eugene weight loss diet meant not eating, not eating what they want, not eating what everyone else eats. The idea of Eugenediet and Eugene weight loss for Eugeneback pain relief may inspire a Eugene back pain sufferer to lose weight and better their Eugene 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’s often relieving for Eugene back pain.


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss tend to be mistaken, hard to adhere to, and disregarded by some of us who don’t like to diet in the customary sense. Dieting with nutrition as the focus is the new Eugene diet plan. Nutrition information research is integral to Eugene chiropractic services at Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic.  A research report about just how well informed 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 knowledgeable. Diet-disease relationships and fatty acids available 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 planned 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 approved of the diet. 92% didn’t feel hungry with it. Fiber was boosted by 6.8 grams per day and protein by 5.7 grams per day. Weight loss was 2.2% overall. (3) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic sees these as positive outcomes for any willing Eugene chiropractic patient!


Physical activity is known to help in weight loss and is urged. Sadly, high rates of physical inactivity and related chronic diseases are continuing to rise globally. Much research showed 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 low and the BMI was elevated.  (5) Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic is a proponent of physical activity!


Low back pain is associated with being overweight/obese using BMI scores. Sex (male/female) and race/ethnicity influence 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 determined. A study revealed that weight-dependent metabolic activity is likely connected to inflammation and back pain. (6) In your Eugene chiropractic treatment plan, Rethwill Chiropractic Clinic looks at how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
