Exercise in women's gym clothing can help obese women reduce their knee pain, according to new research.
The study was published in the British Medical Journal and set out to investigate the impact of diet and exercise on knee pain suffered by overweight men and women.
Three-quarters (74 per cent) of the 389 men and women that took part in the project finished the whole trial, with a significant reduction in knee pain among the exercise group.
Researchers reported no reduction in knee pain among the diet group, although weight loss averaging 2.95kg compared to the non-diet group was seen.
The researchers also found that a moderate diet was associated with reduced depression, despite not having an influence on pain and function reduction.
Speaking to the McClatchy Tribune earlier this week, director of the Women's Sports Medicine Program at Rush University Medical Centre, Chicago Kathy Weber advised obese women to seek medical advice before beginning a new exercise regime.
She said that excess weight could demand supportive women's gym clothing.
