bones and jointsAs we get older we become increasing at risk of developing stiff, swollen or painful joints. There is no doubt about this and the issue of bad joints is well known as an issue for wellness and wellbeing for the elderly. It is something that many people worry about constantly – will it become too painful to move and do things properly when they get older?

But it is not something that we need to constantly be afraid of. There are many ways to ensure that ensure you keep your joints healthy and (relatively) pain free. Here are three great ways to avoid doing excess damage to your joints as the years go on.

Get plenty of exercise

You might think that exercise is bad idea if you want to keep your joints as pain-free as possible. But the reality is that exercise is good for the joint. Try to avoid impact sports such as running, football and tennis as these can be an unnecessary level of strain on the joints. Instead focus on doing non-impact sports like swimming and yoga.

Take the right supplements

Supplements are a very good idea to keep your joints happy and healthy. One of the most important for continued joint health is glucosamine. It is vital in creating amino acids which are known to be the building blocks for structures like the ligaments and the tendons. Taking these supplements along with a healthy diet will do you the world of good.

Eat right

Being overweight can be a big problem for your joints. So eat plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid fat and sugar and soon you’ll lose some weight and be on the right track for health joints for life.
