Body Mass Index is Associated with Lumbar Disc Degeneration in Young Finnish Males.
A recent study in the journal BMC Musculoskeletal Disorder discovered a strong link between adolescent's body weight and the incidence of disc disorders in the lumbar spine. Through our years of practice we have treated disc disorders in many people and research has consistently demonstrated that conservative management can treat many disc disorders successfully. We have also noted that with someone who is obese it's much more difficult to treat disc disorders successfully. This is one of the first studies that has drawn a correlation between weight and disc disorders in people so young. Early degeneration was observed in children as young as 11 years old who were obese.
Obesity has been linked to increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer creating excessive expenditures for disease processes that are a result of poor choices our society makes. Spine disorders can now be added to this long list.
