If you have ever experienced pain in your joints, you know it can be a serious matter. Thousands of people feel pain in their knees, ankles and hips daily. The Family Chiropractic and Spinal Health Care Center in Ramsey sees patients from Northern New Jersey daily who struggle with joint pain. There are many effective ways of reducing such pain.
“We advise all of our patients to exercise to the best of their ability for a minimum of 30 minutes a day,’ shares Dr. Abtahi. “Unattended attention to joint pain can lead to chronic issues.” Limited ranges of motions and constant stiffness, constant fatigue, swelling, pain, redness and warmth are familiar to many. “If any of your daily activities are affected, please make sure to visit your healthcare provider as soon as possible.”
Low-impact exercises such as yoga, biking, swimming in addition to walking are favorite ways to obtain long-term relief. The added exercise benefit is losing weight, which is important for reducing the risks such as osteoarthritis and heart disease. Taking breaks from prolonged periods of sitting or standing helps, proper shoe wear, and the use of cold and hot therapies can all make a difference.
