Let’s be real for a minute. There is no doubt that over the past year most of us have added a few pounds; or more than a few pounds. We know it’s not good for our health, but it has been difficult to eat healthy and exercise. We all know that there are several medical issues that men can experience when they are overweight. Did you ever think that osteoarthritis would be one of them?
Most of us think of this condition affecting men who have had injuries or are much older than us, but those extra pounds you have put on this year could also be the culprit. The extra weight you are carrying puts added pressure on your joints, reducing the amount of cartilage, or the “cushion” you have in areas such as your hips, knees, hands, and lower back. Overweight men also generally have problems with their joints becoming inflamed due to different substances in their bloodstream. The professional staff at Oklahoma Men’s Clinic can help you lose that weight with our osteoarthritis weight loss treatments, and help you to feel less pain, even if you have already been diagnosed. Any amount of weight loss is beneficial for your overall health, and losing that weight with our medical weight loss program will reduce the pressure and inflammation on your joints, making everyday tasks less painful.
