It’s easy to take our joints for granted until we start experiencing problems with them. Keeping your joints healthy should be a priority, as they can help you remain mobile for much longer as you get older.

If you’re looking for ways to keep your joints healthy, then here are a few things you can do:

Keep your weight in check

Carrying too much weight has a lot of consequences for your overall health as well as your joints. Your ankles, knees, and hips are particularly prone to stress when you’re overweight. Try and keep within a healthy weight range.

Exercise

Moving is great for your health. It can improve your cardiovascular health, your mood, and keep your weight in check. Moving also mobilizes the joints, keeping them supple and strong.

Low impact exercises are better for your joints. Try swimming, walking, cycling, pilates and yoga. These types of exercise shouldn’t be overtaxing your joints.

Incorporate strength training

Strength training using weights or your own body weight is not only good for bone density, but for your joints too. By building and stabilizing the muscles around your joints, you can protect them from damage.

Diet and supplements

A diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins is a great foundation for your overall health. Calcium, vitamin D, and omega 3 fatty acids can keep bones strong and reduce joint inflammation.

You might want to consider taking supplements if you aren’t getting a good enough variety of foods in your everyday diet.
