Weight Loss for Joint Pain

Break free of joint pain today!

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.

This is where the CSIRO Total Wellbeing Diet comes in!
