Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2014 -- VitaBreeze today launched a campaign to encourage those who suffer with joint pain to exercise more regularly. Exercising when you suffer from joint pain sounds impossible, particularly when the smallest movements hurt. Yet despite what many people think, staying still is actually the worst thing for joint pain.
“Many do not realize it, but immobility will exacerbate joint pain. This is why we want to encourage movement and exercise to improve not only joint pain, but overall health,” said Michelle O'Sullivan, spokesperson at VitaBreeze supplements.
Exercise is good for the body; everyone knows and understands this fact. There are plenty of studies and physicians who will support this claim, but for the joints, exercise has many benefits.
By exercise, this does not mean running, heavy cardio or lifting weights. Instead, focusing on the simple motions of walking, arm circles and even good stretches will work wonders for one’s joint pain and the body.
Exercise will strengthen the muscles and help decrease the pain in the joint. A brisk 15 minute walk once a day will also trigger endorphins in the brain, which are the body’s natural pain relievers. Both will help with joint pain.
If walking is difficult or there is a chance of falling, water activities, including water aerobics and swimming are great alternatives. The natural resistance of water plus the buoyancy will help reduce the strain on the joint.
Besides exercise, there are other good things to do as well. Drinking plenty of water and taking vitamins and supplements are another great way to help with joint pain.
“Water keeps the muscle tissue saturated and will help keep joints working smoothly. There are several reasons to take vitamins,” said O’Sullivan.
The efficacy and quality of a supplement can vary greatly from product to product. There are plenty available on the market, but two specific ingredients are often used to target joint pain. Glucosamine has been heavily studied and recommended for its support with joint structure. The other ingredient, chondroitin, helps the body naturally fight swelling.
“Ultimately, a combination of exercise, nutrition, and supplements has often proven to be the best option. But be sure to check with a physician to ensure you are in good enough health to exercise,” said O’Sullivan.
