Carrying Extra Weight May Bother San Jose Back Pain

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

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


Nutrition guidelines for health and for weight loss are likely to be unvalued, hard to adhere to, and disregarded by some of us who do not like to diet in the customary sense. Dieting with nutrition in mind is the new San Jose diet plan. Nutrition information research is integral to San Jose chiropractic services at McMurray Chiropractic Solutions.  A research report about just how knowledgeable people are about a healthy diet showed that females, 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 beneficial effect on cardiovascular disease risk factors superior to 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 hung in with the program to its end 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) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions sees these as positive outcomes for any willing San Jose chiropractic patient!


Physical activity helps in weight loss and is urged. Unfortunately, high rates of physical inactivity and associated chronic diseases are continuing to rise globally. Much research demonstrated that physical activity can modify individual behavior. (4) Physical activity and BMI was connected to unrelenting low back pain. Back pain was worse when physical activity was small and the BMI was high.  (5) McMurray Chiropractic Solutions is a supporter47 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 tend to have more risk of back pain versus 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 connected to inflammation and back pain. (6) In your San Jose chiropractic treatment plan, McMurray Chiropractic Solutions looks at how your metabolism may be a contributor to this back pain episode and your weight.
