Looking after your joints


When exercising it is imperative to ensure that you keep your body and also your joints in good health, as these can cause discomfort in older age if not cared for correctly. Over using joints, or not having a good diet in early age can cause increase the likelihood of developing osteoarthritis and similar joint problems. This problem is caused when joints rub against one another due to a lack of cartilage, creating a lot of discomfort.

One of the first tips i would recommend is to use correct footwear and technique for whatever sport you do. Runners are known to get problems with knees and hips after excessive years of doing the sport, due to the impact on the joints from roads and the impact of running. Getting correct running shoes for example will reduce the impact passed through the foot onto the knees. Proper cushioning in the sole of the shoes helps reduce this impact dramatically.

You can also make some changes to your diet, such as trying to increase the levels of oily fish in your diet. Fish such as mackerel, herring or sardines are good for this and will provide you with high levels of Omega 3’s which are great for your jonits. You could also supplement you day to day food intake with glucosamine, which is thought to help the joint replenish its natural defences against wear and tear. Glucosamine is a natural compound found in the joints which provide a level of lubrication between the joints, which will help to preserve them after a large amount of exercise.

Because your joints are an important part of your body to look after, you should take care of them on a daily basis to ensure you live a healthier, happier life.
