Arthritis affects the joints, the tissue surrounding the joints, and other connective tissues in the body. The sensation involves an unpleasant swelling or inflammation and can make it increasingly difficult to move the joints. The joints affected by arthritis are especially difficult to move in the morning.


Is Arthritis Preventable?

A Harvard study of skeletons suggests much age-related Arthritis may be preventable. If you're concerned about your chances of getting arthritis, there are a number of preventative measures you can take right now. These are seven ways to help prevent the onset of arthritis.

1. Maintain a Healthy Body Weight.

Excess weight is bad for the joints. If you're overweight or obese and carrying around extra lbs, your joints feel the strain. In addition to this, when an individual is overweight or obese the degradation of cartilage moves more quickly than the renewal process that's supposed to restore it. Over time, this degradation leads to osteoarthritis. Work to maintain a healthy weight or lose excess weight to alleviate unwanted stress on your joints.

2. Swap Running for Aerobics.

Long-distance running and other high-intensity work outs can be hard on the body's joints. Running is especially hard on the joints and connective tissues in the knees. Swap out these workouts for aerobic exercise if you're concerned about arthritis. Swimming is especially gentle on the joints, while still providing a great workout.

3. Be Mindful of Body Mechanics.

Your body should move fluidly and maintain its natural positioning. Paying attention to your posture is a good way to stay mindful of body mechanics. When you walk up the stairs, bend over to pick something up, or engage in any physical task, pay attention to the proper mechanics of physical movement.

4. Stretch for Injury Prevention.

Injuries are a large strain on the joints. Engage in regular stretching to protect your body from injury. Stretching can increase circulation to your joints and maintain natural elasticity.

5. Increase Vitamin D Intake.

Vitamin D is beneficial for the body's joints but not always easy to get. The sun naturally provides Vitamin D to the body but it's often added to milk and other food products to ensure people are meeting their requirements in low sun exposure regions. Vitamin D supplements are also available to up your intake.

6. Drink Lots of Water.

Water, water, and more water. The body's cartilages are mostly made of water, so hydration is key for joint restoration, repair, and general maintenance. It's easier to damage the joints if they are dehydrated. Drink up and avoid overconsumption of dehydrating liquids like coffee and alcohol.
