Paying attention to joint health helps keep you flexible and active. Otherwise, joint inflammation, pain, and stiffness may develop and interfere with your daily activities. Thankfully, there are steps you can take to keep your joints functioning well. You can add more anti-inflammatory foods to your diet, exercise regularly, or take supplements for joints specifically tailored to your needs.
Why Is Joint Health Important?
Joints allow movement between two bones and can be stable or mobile. The shoulder, hip, knee, and spinal joints are mobile joints that allow motions such as rotation, bending, or twisting. A protective fibrous tissue called cartilage helps the joint glide without friction during movement. Age, overuse, inactivity, joint injury, infection, poor nutrition and genetics (genes you inherit from your parents) are factors that can lead to degeneration (worn joints), chronic inflammation, and pain. Inflammatory joint disorders such as osteoarthritis, gout or rheumatoid arthritis may also develop.
Signs of Joint Problems
Signs or symptoms of something is wrong with your joints to include:
- Joint pain, redness, swelling, or tenderness
- Joint stiffness or weakness
- Trouble bearing weight
- Joint locking or loss of range of motion
- Grinding or clicking sounds during movement
How to Maintain Joint Health and Function
The following lifestyle habits can help reduce the risk of joint inflammation, worn cartilage, pain, injury, arthritis, and limited mobility.
A healthy, balanced diet provides vital nutrients to strengthen your bones and joints and reduce the risks of developing inflammatory joint diseases such as osteoarthritis or gout. In addition, eating healthy helps you maintain the right body weight and limit stress on your weight-bearing joints. The right nutrients include calcium, vitamin D, vitamin C, and Omega-3 fatty acids. Foods rich in antioxidants, such as fresh fruits and vegetables, help reduce inflammation and slow down cartilage damage. Ginger, turmeric (curcumin), and Boswellia serrata plants and their extracts are also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.
Staying active and doing range-of-motion exercises are important for your joints. Exercise also helps strengthen the muscles and ligaments around the joint. Doctors recommend you continue to exercise even if you experience symptoms of unhealthy joints such as pain or have arthritis. People with arthritis should do low-impact or joint-friendly exercises such as walking or biking. This can help manage pain and improve their quality of life, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Joint Support Supplements
