When Weight Gain Causes Pain, Get Relief With Chiropractic Care
Gaining weight is one of the worst feelings. Your pants don’t fit, you feel bloated and uncomfortable, and moving becomes just a little bit more difficult. Along with all of that, weight gain can also hurt! If you find that you have weight related pain, check out how you can manage the pain, lose a little weight, and keep your body healthy despite putting on a few extra pounds.
What Causes Weight Gain?
As we all know, weight gain can be caused by many different things. Overeating, a busy lifestyle, and a lack of exercise are common causes of weight gain. Other causes include hormonal problems, excessive stress levels, and even pregnancy. While some of these are harmful (lack of exercise, overeating) and others are normal and healthy (pregnancy), the addition of extra weight can certainly cause discomfort and even pain.
What Causes the Pain?
The pain can be caused by a number of different things, but this will highlight a few. For starters, extra weight may make you uncomfortable. This may not be a “pain” per se, but it will definitely cause comfort levels to drop and may make movement irritating and borderline painful. Another common cause of pain that is connected with weight gain is the pressure and tension that additional weight can cause. When you have more weight than what your particular frame is designed to hold, it can put undue pressure on the muscles, joints, and bones which can obviously cause bit of pain.
What Can I Do About It?
The most obvious answer is to lose weight, but that is not always immediate or possible. A great technique for both managing pain and aiding in weight loss is to get regular chiropractic care. Chiropractic care may be able to align the spine properly, which can diminish pressure and pain on the spine and make movement, exercise, and activity easier. Increased movement may help you shed some of that unwanted weight. Chiropractic care may also release tension, which can help to ease some of the pain, especially in the case of pregnancy. Lastly, many people use this sort of care for stress release. The less stress, the more efficiently your body works and the more likely it is to stay in overall better health.
