Health Tip: Help Keep Joints Healthy

By on June 21, 2010

People with arthritis can take steps to lessen pain, increase movement and improve their mobility.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions for promoting joint health:

  • Get regular physical activity — at least 30 minutes worth, five days per week.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight.
  • Avoid overusing and injuring your joints. Take breaks and vary your activities when possible during exercise and work that require repetitive motion.
  • Visit your doctor at the first sign of arthritis symptoms.
