4 Tips for Maintaining Your Joint Health

Our joints play an important role in our overall health and longevity. Over time, they may get weak, stiff, or inflamed which limits our ability to walk and do activities we enjoy. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Our holistic health experts at Wellness Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee, can help maintain your joint mobility for years to come. Learn about how our specialized nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) therapy can help and follow these tips.

1. Maintain a healthy weight

If you carry excess pounds, you’re putting extra pressure on your joints, especially the knees. Over time, this could cause pain, inflammation, or make conditions like arthritis worse. So, if you’re overweight, the best thing you can do for your joints is to lose weight and maintain weight for the rest of your life. 

Losing weight doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Start with small changes like switching out sugary drinks like juices and sodas for water or even flavored water if you need to. Add more fruits and vegetables into your diet and aim to eat more whole foods and fewer packaged foods. 

2. Keep moving

It may sound counterintuitive, but the best thing you can do to keep joints healthy is to move more. Our bodies are meant to be in motion, that’s why we have joints in the first place. If you sit for long periods of time, you may notice you feel stiff or sore. If you move around or take a walk everything loosens up and you feel better. 

If you have chronic inflammation from arthritis or an autoimmune condition like lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, it may be painful to walk. It’s okay to go slow. Aim for a few more steps each day or go a little further around the neighborhood. 

3. Get more exercise

Strengthening the muscles around the joints helps support them and keep them stable. Gentle exercises like walking, swimming, yoga, and Tai Chi are good ways to stay active without overstressing your joints.

4. Try NAD therapy

Have you heard of NAD therapy? This innovative treatment can reduce inflammation and pain in your joints so you can stay active for years to come. If you have chronic inflammation from an autoimmune condition, this natural alternative to pharmaceuticals could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

NAD is a natural enzyme found in the body that aids metabolism, DNA repair, immune function, and more. As we get older, NAD production naturally slows down but chronic inflammation also contributes to its decline. By infusing the body with NAD, cellular function improves and your body will function better. As a result, you may have less joint pain and inflammation.
