Remember how you used to climb trees, play hopscotch and other outdoor games when you were just a child. We humans, have been designed to move. But as we age, we show signs of joint pain and lose flexibility the way we used to have as a child. The reason being that the connecting tissue and cartilage, the cushioning between the joints, can thin down over time.
With age, we tend to lose muscle mass. So instead of muscles absorbing the impact of our activities, it’s the joints that bear the brunt, leading to joint damage. The best way to protect ones’ joints and to prevent inflammation and pain at later stage is by taking these preventive measures.
Some easy ways to support your joints and bones
Physical exercise is the best way to keep your joints and muscles lubricated. Inactivity makes the joints to ache and even the basic movements become difficult. Stretching tight muscles and regular strengthening exercises are a great way to improve joint pain.
Maintain a healthy weight
The lesser we weigh, the lesser we will put pressure on your joints. Maintaining a healthy weight is important to supporting our joints too.
Eat a right diet
Include anti-inflammatory food in your diet like Turmeric. Adding turmeric to our daily food like curries and salads is also a great way to support joints. Including food rich in calcium and getting adequate Vitamin D from the sun will also strengthen and help your bones.
