Recently a study has been conducted to find out the relationship between knee problems and obesity. The study found that if a person’s body-mass index is slightly more than the healthy range, then that person is three times more likely to have a cartilage tear. It is found that the heavy men are 15 times more likely to have torn knee cartilage, and women in the same category are at 25 times more risk.
Investigations that performed repeated x-rays over time also have found that being overweight significantly increases the risk of developing knee problems.
