EXERCISE FIXES JOINT PAIN   Leave a comment

The Harvard Medical School published recommendations for the relief of joint pain. Joint pan can be caused by:

• osteoarthritis
• old injuries
• repetitive or overly forceful movements during sports or work
• posture problems
• aging
• inactivity
• excess bodyweight

I deal with chronic pain in my right ankle resulting from injuring it repeatedly playing rugby during my college years. I can testify that regular exercise definitely helps me manage the pain in that ankle.

Targeted exercise can not only relieve joint pain but possibly delay or even eliminate the necessity of surgery for joint pain relief. The Harvard Medical School also reports, “Beyond the benefits to your joints, becoming more active can help you stay independent long into your later years. Regular activity is good for your heart and sharpens the mind. It nudges blood pressure down and morale up, eases stress, and shaves off unwanted pounds. Perhaps most importantly, it lessens your risk of dying prematurely. All of this can be achieved at a comfortable pace and very low cost in money or time.”

A primary culprit is excess bodyweight. Excess bodyweight:

1. Increases risk for osteoarthritis
2. Puts additional stress on weight bearing joint
3. Activates inflammatrot factors that can spread the pain to ther joints

The targeted solution for eliminating excess bodyweight to relieve joint pan integrates targeted exercise with improvements in diet and nutrition.
