Body Mass Index
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measurement of a person’s weight with respect to his or her height. It is more of an indicator than a direct measurement of a person’s total body fat.
BMI, more often than not, correlates with total body fat. This means that as the BMI score increases, so does a person’s total body fat.
Body Mass Impact on Knees
Your BMI (Body Mass Index) determines how much your weight is pressing on your knees. You put four (4) lbs. of pressure on each knee for every one (1) lb. of weight. This can really add up so a healthy BMI (below 25) is recommended for this with knee pain.
If you are post-knee-surgery you should really focus on keeping that BMI low to maximize the utility and longevity of your new knee(s).
