A recent study showed a correlation between people who have more weight have more pain. People who are overweight tend to have illness’s such as type 2 diabetes, arthritis, high cholesterol, depression, and back pain. However, the study showed that people who are overweight tend to experience more pain than people of average weight, whether or not they are suffering from an illness. The results of the study showed that people with a body mass index between 25 and 29 experienced 20% more pain than people of average weight. It also showed that people with a BMI between 30 and 34 experienced 68% more pain. The higher the BMI’s were,  the more pain there was experienced by the  individuals.

If you are finding yourself to be in pain, whether you are overweight or not, maybe it’s time to stop by Magnolia Chiropractic! And what better way is there to start off the new year!
