How To Relieve Joint Pain

How to relieve joint pain. When you suffer from joint pain, it’s very tempting to avoid exercise and moving in general. Although it might seem counter intuitive, this is actually one of the worst things you can do.

Of course, if you are experiencing major and persistent discomfort, a visit to your doctor or physiotherapist is a must, but for the rest of us, the answer is to get up and move. The longer you sit without moving the tighter and weaker your muscles get.

Your muscles actually support your bones, and as they weaken, more stress is put on your joints resulting in more pain. No one is saying that you need to jump up and run a marathon or become a weightlifter, but it is crucial that you do some weight bearing activities in addition to cardio. Also, alternate your workouts so that you are doing arms and then legs as that won’t over-stress your muscles.

It’s not enough to just do a few exercises, since your goal is to do full body workouts that include your arms, legs and core. Here are a few exercises and stretches that you should be incorporating into your day.
