Weight Loss Relieves Osteoarthritis Pain

These days it is a very common site to see middle aged people esp. women walk in an awkward manner due //to the degenerative disease of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis, osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative disease caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of joint cartilage. It commonly affects the hands, feet and weight-bearing joints including the knee.

A long-term research study conducted by Wake Forest University, North Carolina (USA) proclaims that subjects suffering from OA showed that an average weight reduction of 5 percent in overweight and obese older patients brought an 18 percent gain in overall function. Three kinds of groups were formed based on a regime of diet only, exercise only or a combination of healthy habits.

The abstract written on the above study, states that for every one pound of weight loss, there is a 4-pound reduction in the load exerted on the knee with each step. Considering this addition of the effects on thousands of steps we take each day it is a significant difference. This way the load on knees is drastically reduced and OA pain can be relieved.

Therefore this weighty problem has a weight loss solution and has been proved to be highly beneficial for OA patients.
