Did you know that approximately one-third of doctor’s visits are scheduled due to joint pain and joint disorders?
We can experience joint pain from several conditions, including the most common form of arthritis: osteoarthritis.
Osteoarthritis is a common condition that can affect any joint in our body. When a joint develops osteoarthritis, part of the joint’s cartilage thins. The surface becomes rougher, preventing the joint from moving smoothly. Many people develop osteoarthritis in their knees and feet.
We can prevent osteoarthritis with some lifestyle changes:
- Maintaining a healthy weight
- Controlling our blood sugar
- Low-impact exercise
- Avoiding heavy labor jobs with repetitive motions
Although we can stay active, eat well, and maintain a healthy weight, we might still experience osteoarthritis or joint pain.
