Do you suffer from joint pain?
It’s the worst. Especially because you have to use your joints to move and go about your day. It can seem nearly impossible to avoid joint pain once you have it.
In this article, we’ll talk about some of the causes of joint pain, as well as what you can do to help treat it.
There’s probably a more technical definition of what a joint is, but for the purpose of this article, let’s consider joints to be all of the bendy parts of your body.
That’s your elbows, your knuckles, your shoulders, your knees, your ankles, and anything else we’re forgetting. These bendy parts bend because there is a joint.
Your body has different types of joints: Pivot, Ball and Socket, Condyloid, Plane, Saddle, and Hinge ... all of which can move when muscles and tendons tighten or loosen around it.
Joint pain can be caused by anything that makes that movement more difficult.
It could be that the muscles and tendons around your joints are sore and have been overworked ... which might feel like joint pain.
It might be that your actual joint is somehow damaged, causing the different parts to rub against each other in ways that they don’t normally.
It could be from a lack of a sufficient amount of synovial fluid in the joint.
It could also be due to arthritis.
Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints.
Arthritis can affect one or more joints at a time. In fact, there are two common forms of arthritis, one is osteoarthritis and the other is rheumatoid arthritis.
Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and progresses slowly in some people starting in their 40s. Most people who experience arthritis feel it in their wrists, hands, hips, and knees.
Arthritis isn’t the only cause of joint pain, however. Other conditions which can cause joint pain include:
As always, a good practice is to consult your doctor if you think the joint pain is more serious than just needing to take a day off from the gym, or normal inflammation from activity.
A doctor will be able to help you pinpoint the exact problem that’s causing your joint pain. Obviously, you wouldn’t treat severe joint pain the same way you’d treat over-use-caused joint pain.
But once you know what is causing your joint pain, you can work with your doctor to reduce it.
When it comes to less severe joint issues ... natural remedies, supplements, and recovery techniques can help ease and alleviate joint pain. This will get you back to feeling ready for an active and healthy lifestyle!
The following is not a complete list, but here are a few good starting points to look into for potentially helping with joint pain.
Cissus quadrangularis is a perennial plant that’s also part of the grape.
In parts of the world, cissus quadrangularis is used to help joint pain, discomfort, and to even help with arthritis.
Some studies have supported these treatment methods finding that people who supplement their medical treatments with cissus quadrangularis have experienced joint pain relief in greater amounts.
Consider 1st Phorm Joint Mobility to add cissus quadrangularis to your daily routine.
Antioxidants are chemical compounds that help neutralize and destroy other compounds called free radicals.
Free radicals are a primary cause of inflammation in our bodies. You get them from the food you eat, daily activity, dirty air you breathe, and a variety of other places.
You can also create free radicals and more inflammation through your workout and training routine.
Don’t worry too much though, because everyone has free radicals in their bodies. So, it is not that you need to try and get rid of them all.
The problem occurs when your body can not keep up in naturally managing them, and this is what can lead to an excessive amount ... and the negative consequences associated with them.
Instead, focus on increasing your antioxidant count to better manage the free radicals before they start causing more damage.
Consider 1st Phorm Opti-Reds 50 to add antioxidants to your daily routine.
Fish oil is just that, oil that’s harvested from fish.
There are different types of fish oil including eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
Normally, when people talk about fish oils, they use the shorthand “omega-3s” when talking about these different types of oils.
Fish oils are great because not only can they help you reduce joint pain caused by inflammation, they also help with symptoms like morning stiffness, tenderness, swelling, and discomfort.
Consider 1st Phorm Full-Mega to add fish oil to your daily routine.
Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin, meaning it’s produced in your body when you’re exposed to sunlight.
But in many cases it's still a good idea to supplement with Vitamin D, because studies have shown 70-90% of the American population is Vitamin D deficient, leading to a host of problems.
Vitamin D plays multiple roles in the body, but the one we’re most interested in is its role in maintaining bone health.
The healthier your bones and joints are, the less likely you’ll experience joint pain.
Consider1st Phorm Liposomal Vitamin D3 to add more Vitamin D to your daily routine.
If you’re suffering from joint pain, make sure you figure out what the cause is, so you know how to treat it properly.
But once you know the cause, you can supplement your current efforts with the right natural ingredients to help reduce joint pain and discomfort.
These natural efforts and supplements (especially Joint mobility) have helped so many people find comfort where they otherwise couldn’t find it.
So if you're tired of dealing with joint pain ... having to alter your lifestyle because of it ... or can't work out how you want... then check out these supplements to help you reduce your joint pain and get back on track.
