Health Tip: Help Keep Joints Healthy

June 21, 2010

(HealthDay News) — People with arthritis can take steps to lessen pain, increase movement and improve their mobility.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these suggestions for promoting joint health:

  • Get regular physical activity — at least 30 minutes worth, five days per week.
  • Maintain a healthy body weight.
  • Avoid overusing and injuring your joints. Take breaks and vary your activities when possible during exercise and work that require repetitive motion.
  • Visit your doctor at the first sign of arthritis symptoms.
