Various conditions may lead to painful joints that include osteoarthritis,strains, rheumatoid arthritis,bursitis,gout, sprains & other injuries.Joint painwas extremely common.
These all conditions were logical linked to the obesity, the more weight on a joint, the more stressed the joint becomes, & more likely it will wear down & damaged. Weight will play a major role in joint stress, so when people were overweight, it will put stress on the joints, particularly their weight-bearing joints, such as the knees & the hips. Weight loss provides important potential in reducing the pain.
Obesity may also causes mechanical disruption which includes joint compression & alignment changes which can lead to pain. Pain which occurs with the obesity was not exclusively mechanical. Increased rates of the pain in locations above knees & low back will also have been associated with the obesity, which includes the upper extremities, thoracic spine and neck.Even though the additive burden of the pain & obesity can seem overwhelming to the patients & clinicians, even modest weight loss may produce positive results.
