Obesity link to increased risk for orthopedic conditions, surgical complications
Medical Xpress
Obesity affects individual patient care, the health care system and nearly every organ in the body. People with obesity often have other health problems, including diabetes, heart disease, certain tumours and cancers, and psychiatric disorders. However, the role of obesity in orthopaedic conditions and their treatment is less well-publicized. Obesity is a strong independent risk factor for pain. Adolescents with obesity were more likely to report musculoskeletal pain, including chronic regional pain, than their normal-weight peers.
