Carrying Extra Weight May Bother Ashburn Back Pain

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

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


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss are likely to be mistaken, hard to stick with, and rejected by some of us who don’t appreciate dieting in the customary sense. Dieting with nutrition in mind is the new Ashburn diet plan. Nutrition information research is part of Ashburn chiropractic services at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn.  A research report about just how well informed people are about a healthy diet showed that females, 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 beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors better than a fruit/vegetable diet or grain/fruit/vegetable diet. (2) Another study that set out 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) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn sees these as positive outcomes for any willing Ashburn chiropractic patient!


Physical activity helps in weight loss and is urged. Unfortunately, high rates of physical inactivity and related chronic diseases are continuing to increase globally. Much research demonstrated that physical activity can modify individual behavior. (4) Physical activity and BMI was related to unrelenting low back pain. Back pain was worse when physical activity was small and the BMI was high.  (5) Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn is a proponent of physical activity!


Low back pain is linked to 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 contrasted with 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 Ashburn chiropractic treatment plan, Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn looks at how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
