Understanding and Helping Achy Joints

One of the more common complaints I get from customers is about aches and pains in joints.

The first thought is usually deterioration of joint cartilage, better known as Arthritis. Of course, this is very well possible, because people have had a proper diagnosis. However, if it is not arthritis, it could also be damage or tightness in ligaments or tendons, or perhaps chronic stiffness in muscles.

Pain can be very debilitating, and most of us don’t want to complain, or give up work. We start to favor the opposite body part, joint, hand, knee, or hip; not realizing we are eventually damaging that part as well.
Therefore, find a Physical Therapist who can loosen that specific joint, and who re-trains you how to move that part of your body correctly again.

There are some great dietary supplements that can be used in conjunction with good Physical Therapy, massage, acupuncture, Reiki, and chiropractic treatments. Next week I will highlight some of those.

Meanwhile, if you’d like to get a head start on your pain, please check out the many quality options we have!
