Obesity Causes Low Back Pain

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  While this fact seems quite obvious, research published in 2018 actually backs up this claim.  With obesity on the rise, paired with an out of control opioid epidemic, America needs a safe drug-free alternative.  Fortunately, spinal adjustments and enzyme nutrition can help.

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  Obesity is on the rise in the United States.  Sadly, its growth continues to increase at an alarming rate.  Unfortunately, so is our opioid crisis.  Is there a connection?  As a matter of fact, research from 2018 shows a clear connection between back pain and obesity.  If this pain gets bad enough, some sufferers may turn to opioid medication for pain relief.  However, there is another solution.

In May of 2018, JMPT published research demonstrating the connection between obesity and low back pain.  In fact, the study concluded the following.  “Overweight and obesity were associated with increased odds of low back pain.”

Unfortunately, this can create a viscous cycle.  Sadly, as you gain wait, you feel more pain.  To make matters worse, as you feel more pain, you exercise less because of that pain.  As time goes on, the cycle continues until it spins out of control. Later on in life, you go to the doctor only to find out you’re suffering from all of the complications obesity causes.  These problems include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and many more.  Conversely, the key is to take care of this problem long before these problems arise.

The Safe and Natural Approach

Just how do we take care of this problem safely and naturally?  In our office, we use a combination of traditional or low-force chiropractic care, enzyme nutrition, dietary changes and custom tailored exercise program.  First, the right specific spinal corrections can relieve your low back pain allowing you to exercise.  In fact, spinal adjustments can even improve your athletic performance.  Did you know that research from the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that chiropractic is more effective than medicine at treating pain.  On top of that, the right dietary changes paired with the right enzyme supplements can help your body properly eliminate chronic inflammation.  This is the leading cause of obesity.  Lastly, other enzymes can even help your body break down fat properly.

Metabolic Syndrome.  Medical professionals coined this term in 1947.  However, it gained popularity in the 1970’s and faded in the new millennium.  So what exactly is metabolic syndrome?  Metabolic syndrome is a collection of borderline problems including high body fat, blood pressure, blood sugar, and blood chemistry.  So just what exactly does it mean?  It means that if you have metabolic syndrome, and you don’t do anything about it, you’ll experience serious health problems down the road.  In fact according to the Merck Manual, over 40% of adults over 50 suffer from it.

Metabolic syndrome is a collection of “early warning signs.” This signs often indicate that some serious health problems will arise in your future.  Those health problems include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, deep vein thrombosis, chronic inflammation and kidney problems.  Another common sign is a large waist size indicating too much belly fat.  We refer to this as a pear shaped body instead of an apple shape.  In fact according to the Merck Manual, low testosterone in men and a history of polycystic ovaries in women can also lead to this condition.

The Medical Approach

Sadly, medical practitioners rarely talk about it these days.  This is unfortunate.  Why?  While it’s not a serious problem by itself, it does mean you’re headed towards some serious life shortening chronic diseases.  Sadly, when medical professionals do intervene, treatment usually includes medication do address the symptoms.  These medications basically treat high blood sugar, or high blood pressure, or cholesterol.  However, there are two major problems with this approach.  The first problem is that these medications deal with the complications, not the actual problem.  Secondly, the drugs come with some serious side effects.

Obesity is a Disease – it’s BAD NEWS

Yes Obesity is a Disease.  Or at least it will be soon.  I know this sounds like good news, right?  I mean after all, now that it’s a disease people will take it more seriously, right?  Unfortunately not.  Calling obesity a disease comes with some serious but subtle political undertones that help big pharma and hurt you.

The Hidden Agenda

Once you call something a “disease”, no diet, supplement, exercise can claim to help it.  Once that label (“disease”) is there, the only thing that can legally claim to cure it is a prescription medication.  So now do you see the political maneuvering?  The prescription drug companies don’t want you to believe that the right diet and exercise program can help.  They’d rather sell you a pill that has potentially harmful side effects.  This gives them even more control over your rights, freedom and health.  Now other health care providers, even natural ones can’t advertise weight loss.

The Good News

There is a bright side, however.  Big Drug Companies can legislate diseases all they want.  Fortunately, that’s not what I do.  I don’t treat disease and never treated disease.  The key to supporting healthy body weight is the right combination of activity, and diet.  It is also vitally important to make sure your body can properly digest, absorb and use those nutrients properly.  The purpose of enzyme nutrition is to do just that.  We accomplish this safely, naturally and effectively without harmful drugs or surgery.
