Joint Protection Tips and Strategies

Reducing Joint Pain:

If you feel pain in your joints while doing an activity, you should stop doing that activity immediately. Even though exercise is good for you, too much exercise can lead to joint wear and tear. Running, for example, can stress the joints of the knees and hips. A better alternative would be to walk on a soft surface, or do low impact exercises, like swimming.

Back Muscle Pain

Lower Back Pain Relief

Lower back pain is one of the most common conditions in those suffering from chronic pain. Our lower backs are responsible for helping us sit, stand, and move comfortably, so it’s no wonder that thousands of people seek advice, each year, on how to best achieve lower back pain relief.

As with any kind of chronic pain, treatment should always try to address the source of the problem, not just the symptoms. In many cases, lower back pain is caused by weakened abdominal muscles. Weak abdominal muscles don’t provide the proper support to the lower back, and can cause the back to pull out of alignment more easily.
