How to Prevent Joint PainAug 22, 2018
Joint health pertains to the smooth tissue between each of your bones that help with movement, athletics, and good muscular strength.
If your joint health is diminishing it could lead to arthritis, stiffness, pain, and other problems.
Try out these tips on how to prevent joint pain easily and effectively!
How do I know if my joints are even bad?
There are many signs of bad joint health in just every day life. Here are a few things that can cause bad joint health in the future or even today:
Make Sure You’re Getting Enough Omega-3’s
Omega-3 fatty acids are great for preventing joint pain in the future. They naturally protect against inflammation.
Cut back on red meats and vegetable oils. Try eating more fish, flaxseed, and green vegetables. These foods are good for anti-inflammatory responses that help when preventing joint pain. Too much inflammation in joints can cause discomfort and if gone unchecked can cause damage.
Manage Your Stress Levels
Stress can very negatively affect the way that joint pain is perceived. Though studies cannot properly make the connection, joint pain is definitely increased. To fix this try starting your day with green tea and practicing some meditation. Yoga and tai chi are very popular for relieving joint pain.
Focus on Good Posture
Sitting up straight and walking properly can drastically improve joint pain. Slumping, dragging your arms, and hunching your back will lead to back problems and problems with circulation.
Cut Back on Smoking
Smoking is linked to many cases of developing arthritis and continuing to smoke will only make it worse.
Studies show that the more people smoke with arthritis, the less the prescription drugs work to treat it. (source)

It is very important to keep your joints healthy with constant movement and activity.
Not only can a sedentary lifestyle increase the risk of heart disease and other things, it is also a big factor in preventing joint problems in the future.
All you would need is 30 minutes of activity a day to decrease the risk. Stretching counts as an exercise in this case.
Going hard at the gym is usually a good thing but pushing yourself too hard can lead to all kinds of muscle tears and joint problems.
Overworking your joints can develop arthritis in early life and lower athletic performance.
Drop a Few Pounds
The more weight that you carry on your body, the more pressure you are placing on your joints.
Losing weight will help to give your joints room to breath and take some of the pressure lying on them all day.
Remember that there are 206 bones in the body and 360 joints!
It is important to care for all of them no matter how minor you think they may be.
