Top Tips for Managing Chronic Pain and Obesity

Top Tips for Managing Chronic Pain and Obesity

Sometimes chronic pain and obesity feel like a chicken and egg scenario. Obesity leads to pain, and pain creates a sedentary lifestyle which leads to obesity. They influence each other, and usually not in a positive way.

The good news is that there are ways you can quiet the pain and develop strategies for managing both conditions better so you can live a happier, healthier, more comfortable life.

Most people want to lose weight to be more active and get out of pain.

You can start to break the cycle of chronic pain with these strategies that we learned from Daniel Baughn PhD, pain and obesity specialist. Watch Video to learn 3 strategies now:

  1. Self-Soothing
  2. Understand How Your Body Receives Pain Signals
  3. Practice Pacing During Work Hours

Remember, if you are managing these chronic conditions:

Seek guidance from healthcare providers who specialize in chronic pain management and weight management. They can help you develop personalized treatment plans and provide expert advice tailored to your specific needs.

Work with a registered dietitian to create a balanced, low inflammatory meal plan that supports weight management and overall health. Focus on getting 90 grams of lean protein each day to build strength and recover from injury and get plenty of fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Try to avoid inflammatory, processed foods and sugary beverages.

Be active, but consider your physical abilities and pain limitations. Low-impact activities such as chair yoga, swimming, or a stationary bike can help manage weight and reduce pain symptoms. Start slowly and only do what feels comfortable.  It’s best to start an exercise routine with guidance from a physical therapist or other healthcare professional.

Get support from mental health professionals who can provide counseling and other advice to help manage stress, anxiety, depression, or other psychological challenges.

It’s important to have a team that you feel comfortable with and that understands your unique medical history as you navigate this journey.
