Soreness, stiffness, tenderness joint pain can have a direct impact on quality of life. Fortunately, there are a number of proactive steps that incorporate all-natural solutions to help improve joint health and overall wellness.
Joint pain is one of the most common health concerns. It affects 30 percent of U.S. adults, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Not surprisingly, joint pain prevalence increases with age. Forty-two percent of adults 45-64 years old, and about one-half of adults 65 and older, have experienced recent joint pain, the CDC reports.
“Just because a person ages, it doesn’t mean they should hurt,” says Dr. Christopher Mohr, a fitness and nutritional expert who consults for television, print and radio outlets throughout the country. “Lifestyle plays a big role in maintaining joint health. Joint health and integrity is built on a strong foundation diet, exercise, and weight management.”
