Joint and bone health
• Don’t over-exercise – regardless of the type of exercise you do, or how heavy the workout, our bodies need time to repair. Someone who does hours of intense exercising daily will have more problems with chronic joint pain than someone who allows their body to recuperate. Our muscles, tendons, and ligaments all need time to rest and repair after a hard workout. That’s what causes them to strengthen over time.
• Lose weight – extra body weight creates a strain on our joints, particularly the knee joints. Losing as little as 10 pounds of body weight can help reduce pain.
• Change positions – sitting or standing all day, day after day, can cause joint pain. We need to vary our routines to give both our bodies and joints variety and rest periods. Getting up and moving around is helpful to break up a routine and keep our bodies in shape.
