A cross-sectional study of 30,000 men and 33,000 women in Norway has revealed a clear connection between high body mass indexes (BMIs) and lumbar region (lower back) pain. This has also been confirmed in an 11-year follow-up study.

Heavy women are hardest hit.

“Women are generally more susceptible to lumbar pains than men. The link between a high BMI and chronic lower back pains is very clear in our material, says Ingrid Heuch, who is a chief physician at the Department of Neurology, Oslo University Hospital.

Heuch explains that women who have body mass indexes over 35 have about a 60 per cent bigger risk of suffering these pains than women with normal weights.

Having a quick skim read breasts appear to have been ignored.

Presumably the weight of a woman's breasts is factored in to her overall BMI, hence that (i.e. above average BMI) not being a reason in itself to suspect a link between breast size and back issues?

But should large boobed ladies have breast reductions to avoid back pain?

I bet the NHS just refers patients to a back specialist rather than suggesting a diet.
