Breast Reduction Surgery Decreases Spine And Back Disorder Risk
A new study has revealed that women who have undergone breast reduction surgery could be at a decreased risk for spine and other back disorders.

Macromastia (overly large breasts) can be an unhealthy condition resulting in significant shoulder pain, back pain, and deep shoulder grooves caused by bra straps.

In the first-of-its-kind study, women who had breast reduction experienced decreased stress in their lower back while performing a physical activity or task.

Besides, participants reported dramatic improvements in their ability to perform dynamic movements and withstand static positions.

For gathering the results, eleven women, determined to need breast reduction surgery, participated in a biomechanical analysis/task that involved lifting a 5 lb. weight and responded to a questionnaire prior to and following their surgery.

The findings of the study were presented at the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) Plastic Surgery 2009 conference, in Seattle.
