Osteoarthritis and back pain are the most common joint-related complaints in Australia. Around 2.2 million Australians suffer from osteoarthritis1, and being overweight or obese is a major risk factor for joint pain.
The good news is that losing a modest amount of weight and making simple lifestyle changes can have a big impact on your pain.
In fact, losing as little as five percent of your body weight can offer significant health benefits, including managing symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain.
