Do you suffer from joint pain?
In this article, you will learn some common mistakes that can worsen your joint pain!
So, if your joints hurt, stay tuned!
One of the abilities of the human body is to move in different ways and directions.
Isn’t it true?
And that’s is possible mostly thanks to our joints.
However, as we get older, or if we suffer from degenerative bone issues, our joints start to hurt.
Sometimes, this pain becomes very intense, and may even leave us unable to do simple movements.
In today’s video, we will show you three things you can do to alleviate your pain:
1 – Mobilize the affected area
According to studies, if you immobilize the joint that is hurting with a splint or arm sling, it may even worsen the situation, as the muscles and ligaments will atrophy.
It will prevent the nourishment of the hurt area, that needs movement to regenerate and get better.
2 – Exercise to improve and delay the wear and pain in your joints
According to researchers, people who had joint pain and started exercising had positive results in their pain.
However, it is necessary to be careful and be monitored by a qualified health professional for your body to respond positively to the exercises.
3 – Vary the exercises daily
Did you know that besides being good for your mind, varying the kind of exercises you do will also do well for your joints?
According to many studies, in case of knee pain, doing different exercises contributes to increasing the quadriceps muscle.
A stronger musculature reduces pain.
Interesting, isn’t it?
So, as you can see, even if your joints hurt, it is still necessary to exercise your body to strengthen your muscles and nourish your joints.
You can try swimming, weight training, aqua aerobics, or stretches.
Exercising will contribute a lot to your health and mobility.
But if your pain doesn’t stop or reduce, schedule a visit to a doctor or physiotherapist to help you.
