Joints Deteriorate without Proper Care
An excerpt from my book Bragg Back Fitness Program Keys to Pain-Free Youthful Back.
Many things can go wrong when your joints – and especially the cartilage that cushions them – aren’t kept healthy. Besides being more susceptible to injury, neglected joints are prone to chronic conditions such as the many different kinds of arthritis (which means inflammation of the joints). 81.75 million Americans suffer with stiffness, pain, swelling, instability, deformation, dislocation and reduced mobility in their joints. In the United States, over 46 million people have joint problems that can be traced back to damaged cartilage. This damage can result from injury, age, heredity and/or unhealthy living. If you are experiencing severe symptoms, it is important that you consult a health professional to determine the cause and accurately diagnose the discomfort before applying a healing program. In the meantime, there is much that you can do to protect your joints and keep them healthy so that they don’t develop problems. And if you do have problems, there are many ways to address them naturally.
