More and more health-conscious people are making exercise a regular part of their daily routine. If you run, pivot, or play you already know flexibility to exercise is vital to your continued mobility. However, the wear and tear of an active lifestyle, compounded by the effects of aging, makes it difficult to maintain healthy joint function. Did you know, that at the age of 30, you start to lose bone density and muscle mass which can cause joint discomfort? Protect your joint health by avoiding these three bad habits:
1. Poor posture –Slouching, slumping, leaning, and other types of poor posture may cause muscle tension, as well as back pain, joint pain, and reduced circulation. If you work at a computer, try to take a break, and stand up every 30 minutes. Better yet, go for a short walk if you can.
2. Inactivity – A sedentary lifestyle increases the risk of multiple illnesses, including osteoarthritis. Add physical activity to your daily routine by riding your bike to work, walking to the shops, or taking the stairs.
3. Rough exercise – Did you know that a high-impact workout can damage your cartilage? If you’re starting a new workout regimen, begin slow by stretching, walking, or swimming to keep yourself active without pushing your joints to their limits.
