Old Age Joints

Joints are an incredibly important part of your body. This may sound like an incredibly obvious point to make, but if that is the case, why do so many people abuse their joints. Maybe it is the short sightedness of human nature and the fact that people under 30 think they are invincible. Either way, I always find it hard to watch an old person with joints that have seized up or have been damaged. Every movement looks painful – and it wont get any better. So look after your joints, or pay the price later in life!

While it can be a bit difficult to start regular exercising when you are suffering from joint diseases, you can chose sports that are not as painful. For instance, swimming and exercising under water are perfect ways to lose weight and to get rid of joint pain.
