I frequently receive inquiries in my Seattle hypnosis and Bainbridge Island hypnosis offices about managing pain and weight loss for osteoarthritis (OA) from people around the world. Being overweight (even a little bit) can impact both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Any weight loss can make a difference in pain control and delaying the progression of osteoarthritis.  In some cases, weight loss can prevent the need for surgery, but this depends on how advanced the OA is. If you are suffering with the chronic pain of arthritis, weight loss hypnosis can help you take the weight off and keep it off. Support your health with your healthy ideal weight.

Weight Loss Strategies to Help Ease Osteoarthritis Pain

WebMD Feature, April 25, 2011: It makes perfect sense if you think about it: carting around extra weight in your middle, for example, places a burden on your knees and hips. And study after study shows that this extra stress can put you at risk for developing osteoarthritis (OA), the wear-and-tear form of the disease. Being overweight or obese will also amplify your pain and make it harder for you to remain active and independent if you’ve already got OA.

With obesity rates soaring, it’s no wonder that 27 million Americans now have OA, according to the Arthritis Foundation. But modest weight loss — dropping just 10 to 15 pounds — can make a huge difference in your knee and hip OA pain, and may even postpone or prevent joint replacement surgery.

As of now, there are no medications that can help modify or stop the OA disease process once it has started, so weight loss and exercise have become increasingly important.

Being overweight puts too much pressure on the joint, and stresses the tendons and a number of other structures around the joint like your muscle. Overweight people usually develop accelerated osteoarthritis in their weight-bearing joints like hips and knees, so one of the treatment strategies is to lose weight.

Many orthopedic surgeons won’t even do the surgeries if you are overweight, so there is really no way to feel better without first slimming down. Being overweight increases the risk of any surgery, including joint replacement.
