The Doctors discuss how joint discomfort or a loss of flexibility or mobility can range from mildly irritating to impactful and may last for weeks, months, or even years.
"Joint discomfort or stiffness happens when the cartilage on the ends of your bones breaks down and your bones rub together," Dr. Andrew Ordon says and shares some tips about what can be done about joint issues.
Tip 1: Try heat. Apply a heating pad, soak in a warm tub or take a warm shower to relax muscles and increase circulation. Heat can relax muscles and increases circulation, Dr. Ordon explains.
Tip 2: Stay active with low impact exercises, such as bicycling or swimming. Dr. Ordon notes that low-impact exercise can relieve some pressure on joints.
Tip 3: Diet. Be mindful of what you eat and increase your intake of whole grains, fruit, and vegetables.
Tip 4: Talk to your doctor to see if a supplement may be right for you. Dr. Ordon says there are new options available.
As always, talk to your doctor before taking any supplements.
