Tips on How to Deal With Osteoarthritis

By Donna Stark

Caring for your joints may not be on your radar yet, but it should be something to think about because if you don't, you could be setting yourself up for significant pain and health issues down the road. One of the most common types of arthritis you could end up facing is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is known as the "wear and tear" arthritis, and because of that, it is mistakenly believed to only affect people over a certain age. But the truth is that it can occur at any age and in any joint, so it is good to be aware of what it is and how much damage it can cause. 

Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic have a lot of experience dealing with osteoarthritis and have put together a helpful guide for you to look at below.

How to Deal With Arthritis

If you are looking for a guaranteed way to completely prevent osteoarthritis, you may be looking for quite a while because there isn't one, but there are some things you can do that will reduce both the risk and severity of it. Here are a couple of suggestions from the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

  • Diet - A nutritious and well-balanced diet filled with foods rich in calcium, Vitamin D, and Vitamin K can help keep your bones strong and healthy. Try to increase your intake of low-fat dairy products, wild-caught fish, lean proteins, leafy greens, and citrus fruit as much as you can.
  • Exercise - Daily exercise is a great way to strengthen your bones and maintain the bone mass you already have. Try to incorporate at least 30 minutes of moderate exercise into your daily routine and make sure your workouts include strength-training, weight-bearing, aquatic, flexibility, stability, and balance exercises for best results.
  • Chiropractic care - Your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can also help keep your bones and joints strong and healthy. The adjustments they provide can alleviate the pressure placed on your joints, correct joint dysfunction, and aid in early detection. By receiving care before your condition becomes too far advanced, you will also be able to reduce the risk of further degeneration. Routine chiropractic care also promotes a healthier lifestyle, so you can count on many other benefits as well!
