With the exception of injury and genetics, carrying around too much cargo is one of the leading causes of sore, painful and stiff joints. The most commonly affected areas include the joints of the knees and hips, though any major joint structure can be affected, such as the ankles, neck and shoulders. Losing weight has been shown in countless studies to help reduce pressure on major joint systems, while calming inflammation and allowing for the delivery of nutrients, collagen and other essential compounds.

Lose Weight to Reduce Pain and Be More Active!
The negative effects of obesity on joints is multi-layered. When a person goes through life with a Body Mass Index (BMI) that's dangerously out of range, it can discourage them from getting out and being active. This sedentary behavior can cause inflammation while inhibiting joint structures from receiving the compounds they need to function. The effects aren’t felt immediately, and this can expedite the rate at which cartilage and tendons become compromised. Moreover, the excess weight places an unhealthy amount of downward force on the hips, knees, ankles and lower spine.
This is a bad combination for anyone seeking quality of life, and one of the most convincing reasons to work towards a more healthy physique. Fortunately, new advances in weight loss are helping people with underlying joint issues achieve a healthy BMI.
