Easy ways to protect your joints

Keep your weight under control. The more you weigh, the more stress you tend to put on your joints, especially your hips, knees, back and feet.

Studies have proven that including plenty of foods containing antioxidants in your diet is very effective in protecting joints from bone changes associated with knee arthritis.

Always maintain a correct posture. It goes a long way in the prevention of joint aches and pains. Also it’s wise for women to avoid wearing very high heels that puts added strain on the knees.

Exercise regularly, but do not over-exercise. Exercising protects the joints by strengthening the muscles around them. The stronger the muscles, the more they’ll protect your joints from rubbing against one another, and help in preventing subsequent wear down of cartilage.

It’s important to not put all pressure on your knees while lifting heavy weight of any sort.
