How to keep active joints moving freely

By Esala Wierzbicki-Saxby, Sep 08, 2022

Joint health is in your court, and the game has already started.

As you move about your day – doing day-to-day tasks, keeping active and doing the things you enjoy – your joints are working hard to keep you moving.

You’re young and healthy, so you probably haven’t thought much about your joint health.

But it turns out you should start caring more for your joints now to build the foundation for a lifetime of healthy, happy joints.

These simple steps can keep your joints on the same team as you while you tackle whatever life brings. Following them will pay off in the long run.

1. Move within your limits

Exercise is one of the most important steps you can take to maintain good joint health and mobility.

But if you push your joints too far, overuse a particular joint or don’t use proper form – particularly when strength training – you are at an increased risk of injury. And joint injuries can slow you down and tend to play up as you get older.

So, what should you do?

Listen to your body and don’t push to the point of pain. They say no pain, no gain, but that advice can lead to injuries. There is a difference between the feeling of burning or fatigue in your muscles and joint pain. The latter can be a warning sign something is wrong.

Remember, variety is important. Doing repetitive motions or limiting yourself to one type of exercise can cause injuries. Keep your body balanced and joints protected by mixing cardio, flexibility and weight training.

Always use proper techniques. Checking in with a certified coach or trainer occasionally to check your workout form can substantially reduce your injury risk. And remember, when your posture and technique become compromised during exercise due to fatigue, it’s time to rest.

2. Nourish your joints

Nutrition goes hand in hand with healthy bones and joints.

Nourishing your body by eating a balanced diet can help to keep your body strong and healthy, including your joints.

A balanced diet should include a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and lean proteins while limiting processed foods.

Foods including fatty fish, leafy greens and nuts and seeds are particularly beneficial for your vulnerable joints.1

3. Add a balanced supplement

A joint supplement can provide extra nutritional support to your joints.

“A good joint health supplement … can give your body the support it needs to go the distance.”

Glucosamine, chondroitin, MSM and Boswellia are some of the key ingredients shown to support joint health, but most of them are not found in the foods you consume.

One of the most commonly used ingredients for supplementing joint health is glucosamine sulfate, which is a natural compound the body uses to build and repair cartilage.

Chondroitin sulfate is often paired with glucosamine in supplements. It is responsible for the resistance and elasticity of healthy cartilage.2

MSM, or methylsulfonylmethane, is a great source of sulfur for your connective tissue. The micronutrient has a broad range of benefits, including providing joint support.3

And Boswellia, an herbal extract from the resin of the Boswellia serrata tree, is used in traditional Indian wellness practices. Modern science suggests it can support joint mobility.4

A good joint health supplement that contains these ingredients – and other natural ingredients that are scientifically shown to benefit the joints – can give your body the support it needs to go the distance.


Play the long game

It is all fun and games until your joints stop playing ball. Stiff and uncomfortable joints can throw you off your game.

But it’s not too late to play catch-up and make sure your body is ready for a lifetime of good joint health.
