The Link Between Repetitive Injury and Weight Gain

The Link Between Repetitive Injury and Weight Gain

This podcast encore episode is all about why repetitive injury can be the culprit for weight gain.

Repetitive injury can often be an overlooked culprit behind weight gain. When you suffer from chronic or recurring injuries, your ability to engage in regular physical activity can be significantly hindered.

This reduction in physical activity leads to a lower overall calorie expenditure, making it easier to gain weight even if your diet remains the same. Additionally, injuries often cause pain and discomfort, which can lead to stress and emotional eating as coping mechanisms.

Decreased mobility and increased caloric intake can create a cycle of weight gain that becomes difficult to break. Furthermore, certain injuries can lead to prolonged periods of inactivity, during which muscle mass may decrease and body fat can increase, further contributing to weight gain.

Addressing and managing repetitive injuries is crucial not only for your physical health and mobility but also for maintaining a healthy weight and overall well-being.
