Can Losing Just 15 Pounds Can Decrease Your Knee Pain By 25%?
According to a research article in the July 2006 Journal of Arthritis & Rheumatism – just one pound of weight loss reduces the load on your knees by up to four (4) pounds! If you lost 15 pounds of fat you would take 60 pounds of weight off your knees. This could give some people significant knee pain reduction close to 25% or greater, by rough estimate.
What does this mean to you? Are you in constant pain? Are you on narcotic pain medications? Are you scheduled for knee replacement? Have you looked at yourself in the mirror lately? Have you stepped on the bathroom scale in the last month? Are you in denial about your health? Are you tired of me asking you questions?
The best, fastest and easiest way to “get healthy” is to lose weight. No other condition affects your overall health greater than being excessively fat. Current estimates indicate that approximately 2/3’s of Americans are overweight. This is ridiculous – it’s no wonder everyone outside of our country makes fun of us. We have become – “the fat & ugly Americans.” The weight loss industry is a “multi-billion dollar industry” that gives little success – in the long run.
Most people believe that the only way to lose weight is by getting more active. While being more active can increase your metabolism – activity or exercise can be a problem if your knees or back are sore. This makes you not want to be active, so you sit around and complain that you can’t lose weight because you can’t exercise.
This is ludicrous and even dangerous thinking. Most weight loss experts today know that best and easiest way to lose weight is by changing your eating habits. In fact, there are current estimates that approximately 80% of weight loss is solely attributed to your dietary habits alone.
“But I hate dieting!”, you may say. Truth is, everyone hates dieting. But…..it works for – everyone. If you don’t believe me, just google some of the unfortunate victims of the various world wars who were kept in prison camps and look at their condition as they were rescued. Not one of them was overweight. I know this is an extreme example – but all people can be affected by changes in dietary habits.
“But I don’t want to go to a ‘weight loss prison camp’ or so called ‘fat farm” – that is way too extreme! We totally agree, that is definitely way too extreme, even though it may be an answer for some people, but what if there was an easier way……..
How can you lose weight (fat) – safely and effectively while not starving yourself like at a prison camp?
Medically Monitored Weight Loss is the answer. A trained health care professional knows best how to monitor your health while you are trying to lose weight. There are many tools available both medically and naturally that can curb appetite, speed metabolism and burn the fat – all while being safe and effective.
At Columbia Basin Pain Management Institute, PLLC we have such a program. It is safe, cost effective and works fantastically!
You may be thinking, “Why would a pain management company have a weight loss program?”
We recognize that a lot of the other conditions that we treat are affected by the patient being over weight. Getting to the root cause of the problem – sometimes can be as easy as losing 20 pounds of fat, whether it is low back pain or knee pain, it doesn’t matter.
Our program is actually three (3) programs in one and it has been extremely successful clear across the country. It is only offered at certain clinics that go through the training, because we want to do it right. With this program you do not have to exercise to lose weight. The medications and other items that are prescribed curb your appetite so that you are not hungry at all. We even tailor it to the individual, so if you are only hungry at a “certain time of the day” we can help with that as well.
What do you have to lose? We are offering a free consultation to all that are interested. Call today at (509) 582-3549 and ask for the free weight loss consultation – or schedule online at this website.
