Body Mass and Foot Joint Pain
It is reasonable to believe that the more a person weighs, the more stain they place on their feet. While this may seem obvious, the first large study over an extended period of time was only recently conducted. Researchers looked at “body mass index (BMI) and foot joint pain (FJP) over a 5-year period to see if they could identify a relationship. According to the authors, the study “demonstrates that, in middle aged women, a high BMI precedes and is predictive of FJP independent of age.”
While losing weight is not easy, there are several behaviors that can contribute to weight gain. These include eating too quickly, not enough sleep, too much stress and a lack of exercise. Consider these in your efforts to get to (stay at) a fit weight.
