4 Workouts to Prevent Joint Pain

By Virginia Laird

Some people have a difficult time finding exercises that do not cause them joint pain. For those who struggle with this issue, rest assured that there are exercises that can help prevent such pain. While many may believe only a personal trainer has the inside scoop on such exercises, the truth is, many already know these exercises and simply need a reminder to employ them again. A few exercises to help prevent joint pain include:

  • Resistance training
  • Swimming
  • Yoga
  • Tai chi

Resistance Train

Although many people associate weight lifting with pain, this does not have to be the case. Obviously, lifting super heavy weights can be painful, resistance training does not require the use of heavy weights. Resistance training can be done with light dumbbells, resistance bands, and other tools that do not cause a ton of stress on the body. Strengthening the muscles of the body can help take strain off the joints, helping to prevent pain.

Swimming

Swimming has a long track record as the best exercise for the body, according to research. Due to its zero impact workout, it can be for anyone. Swimming helps to build and tone every muscle in the body. Chiropractors highly recommend swimming to patients who suffer from joint pain.

Yoga

Yoga is great for preventing joint pain as it is another workout that strengthens the muscles. This is a class that uses poses and stretches to strengthen the muscles of the body. Anytime the muscles can be strengthened it helps to take strain off of the joints.

Tai Chi

Tai chi is a great class to help prevent joint pain, as it focuses on learning to transfer weight in order to improve balance. It is also known for reducing stress on the joints. Like yoga, tai chi workouts focus on strengthening the muscles in order to help prevent joint pain.

As you can see, there are many exercises that can help prevent joint pain. If you suffer from such pain, don’t let it get the best of you any longer. Get started with just one workout to strengthen your muscles and your joint pain could be a thing of the past. Like always, if you suffer with severe pain, it might be a good idea to visit with your chiropractor before hitting the gym.
