How is Obesity Directly Correlated with Lower Back Pain?

According to the Centers for Disease Control, over one-third (35.7%) of Americans are considered obese. This number has been increasing in the last few years - making health problems related to obesity a large issue. To be considered ‘obese,’ you have an excess of body fat, which can greatly increase the risk of health issues. If you’re unsure if you’re considered a heavy individual, we’ve created an easy BMI calculator to help you understand what your current weight/fat ratio is.

Negative health effects of becoming obese include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Cancer (breast, pancreas, colon, rectum, esophagus, and endometrium)
  • Gout
  • Heart disease
  • Sleeping issues (sleep apnea)

Aside from the conditions listed above, another common negative health effect of being plus size is having spinal/back issues. It’s been proven that the higher your BMI level is, the higher chance you have of experiencing lumbar back pain or injury. Carrying around extra weight can take a huge toll on the mechanisms of your back, especially your spinal discs, muscles, and bones. This excess weight shifts your center of gravity, resulting in your back working harder to hold your body in an upright position.

    I think it's working?

    I have degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis. Ever since January I have been struggling with what I may have to accept is my new normal. My daily walks of 3 miles have been reduced to less than a mile. My normally 12K daily step count is 3K on a good day but leaves me in pain for a couple days after and barely managing 1,500 steps. For months I've been trying to figure out how to get all that needs to be done accomplished even if I cannot hit my fitness goals. But much of my end of day consists of me grunting, groaning, and even yelping in pain. My husband noticed a couple of months ago that more and more when I am "standing straight" it is more of an obtuse angle. A friend said her PT suggested this brace to help hers so I have gotten one too. I am bad about remembering to put it on when I start to hurt (as evidenced by my yelping and groaning through making dinner tonight then remembering at the end that I should've grabbed the brace!) but when I do wear it in those times it does restrict my motion to prevent me from doing many of the ****** things that trigger the pain. IT doesn't help when I twist side to side though. Do not expect it to heal and you should not wear it all the time as it will actually weaken your core muscles thereby being counterproductive. I also cannot wear it while sitting as it just stabs me the same way a corset would, and it gets all twisted and tangled if I wear it while doing a lot of sitting and standing (like when we have to go to a couple of different stores on shopping day this Sunday.) and it is not a total solution to the pain. That being said, I am able to get more done, I keep my walking posture straight during my morning walks and am hoping as I cause less irritation I might get better results in my efforts to heal. I have to say, I was not expecting an XL to fit me. I typically wear a 2xl but it may be why it shifts up when sitting and why going from sitting to standing is problematic for me. But I measured from my belly button as directed and it does fit. I would be concerned anything looser would not provide the support needed.
