Abstract
Objective: To identify the relationship between obesity and low back pain (LBP) regarding height, weight, sleeping, chronic diseases, smoking, and steroid use.
Methodology: This cross-sectional study was conducted from January 1, 2016 to January 1, 2018 in obesity research and therapy unit of Alkindy Medical College, Baghdad, Iraq. A total of 110 patients were enrolled and dividing into two groups; group A had obese females with LBP and group B had obese females without LBP Results: There was a significant relationship between body weight and LBP (p=0.039). There is a relation between diabetes mellitus and LBP (p=0.004). There was no significant relationship between height, sleeping time, nap hours, hypertension, rheumatoid arthritis, steroid use, asthma and smoking (p>0.05).
Conclusion: Obesity predisposes to LBP and diabetes. Awareness of weight reduction and lifestyle modification, exercise and healthy diet may help avoid its implications.
