Carrying Extra Weight May Bother Baton Rouge Back Pain

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

How does weight loss and diet, activity and body mass index (BMI), relate to Baton Rouge back pain and its painful interruption of Baton Rouge people’s lives? For some Baton Rouge folks, the concept of weight loss is not new. It’s likely been suggested many times in their lives. For them, a Baton Rouge weight loss diet meant not eating, not eating what they want, not eating what everyone else eats. The idea of Baton Rougediet and Baton Rouge weight loss for Baton Rougeback pain relief may inspire a Baton Rouge back pain sufferer to lose weight and better their Baton Rouge diet when a reduced body mass index (BMI) and increased activity level lead to a better quality of life. Diet and weight loss isn’t just deprivation anymore; it’s often relieving for Baton Rouge back pain.


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss have a tendency to be mistaken, hard to stick with, and rejected by some of us who don’t like to diet in the traditional sense. Dieting with nutrition as the focus is the new Baton Rouge diet plan. Nutrition information research is integral to Baton Rouge chiropractic services at Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation.  A study about just how knowledgeable people are about a healthy diet described that women, higher educated persons, older persons, and those who have a healthy BMI are more knowledgeable. Diet-disease relationships and fatty acids available in foods are the most mistaken. (1) Whole grain diets have a positive effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors better than 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 hung in with the program to its conclusion at 12 weeks. 93% of them favored the diet. 92% did not 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) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation sees these as positive outcomes for any willing Baton Rouge chiropractic patient!


Physical activity helps in weight loss and is encouraged. Sadly, high rates of physical inactivity and associated chronic diseases are continuing to rise globally. Much research showed that physical activity can change individual behavior. (4) Physical activity and BMI was connected to unrelenting low back pain. Back pain was worse when physical activity was low and the BMI was high.  (5) Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation 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 a higher risk of back pain as opposed to 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 probably related to inflammation and back pain. (6) In your Baton Rouge chiropractic treatment plan, Capitol Spine & Rehabilitation looks at how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
