What can I do today to avoid joint pain?
Joint pain is very common especially as we age. There are many lifestyle interventions that help prevent joint pain, the top of the list being MOTION. Motion is lotion (for your joint)! If your body is not moving your joints, bones, ligaments, tendons, and immune system get weaker. The second on the list is DIET. What we put in our bodies makes the building blocks and raw material used by our cells to repair us. Avoiding foods like white sugar, alcohol, and processed foods and increasing whole foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, can decrease inflammation in our bodies and help protect us against joint pain.
