People who are overweight report 20% higher rates of pain. And the more weight they carry, the greater the pain they feel. That’s the finding of a study reported in the journal Obesity. This is of particular importance in Canada where more and more people are becoming overweight. Dr. Arya Sharma is a professor and chair for Obesity Research and Management at the University of Alberta. He spoke with RCI's Lynn Desjardins about why obese people feel more pain and the results of this study.
