As we age, we lose the elasticity and strength of our muscles, tendons, and ligaments along with cartilage breakdown, which leads to inflammation and joint pain. Experts say in a new study that chronic pain affects more than 20% of Americans at any given time.
Over time, joint pain can limit your activities of daily living, social activities, activities related to employment, and recreational activities.
The following are some factors that can help you deal with joint pain:
Losing the Excessive Weight
Excess weight puts added pressure and stress on your joints, particularly the weight-bearing joints such as hips, knees, and ankles. Reducing a few pounds can significantly reduce the pressure on your joints and control inflammation and pain, and also, reduces the risk of arthritis.
Managing weight is not hard with our medically assisted weight loss program. If you are having difficulties with losing the extra pounds, book an initial consultation to learn more about our medically-assisted weight loss program to your needs.
Rehydrating Your Body
Interestingly, 70-80% of our joint cartilage is made up of water and it is a major component of the synovial joint fluid, which prevents friction between the ends of bones and enables smooth and painless movement. When this fluid is not sufficient, the lubrication in joints is reduced which leads to inflammation, joint pain, and arthritis in the long run.
For instantaneous hydration, you can book and benefit from our IV hydration drips, which are a customized blend of vitamins and nutrients that are delivered directly into your bloodstream.
Healthy Immune System
Your immunity plays a critical role in the development and maintenance of many chronic pain conditions. White blood cells repair and rebuild muscles that are damaged from day-to-day life. When the immune system is compromised and the white blood cells are fighting to defend the body, they release a chemical called cytokines, which causes inflammation and pain in muscles and joints.
There are plenty of ways to improve your immune system and stay healthy, and if you want to supercharge your immune system immediately, then our Immunity Drip or Super Immunity Drip can help you with that.
Getting Out of Sedentary Life
After a day-long of work, school, or college, it is tempting to spend the rest of the day relaxing on the couch. According to a CDC study, severe joint pain is more common among adults with arthritis who are physically inactive. Being inactive leads to uneven wear and tear of cartilage, loss of flexibility, reduction in muscle tone, and pain. Being in a sedentary inactive life can develop joint pain in addition to medical conditions like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, etc.
You can choose to take advantage of our Classic Drip for the benefit of boosting your overall health and energy levels to stay active throughout the day.
You can live a pain-free and healthy life by making some lifestyle changes with your diet and exercise. For starters, you could book our Relief Drip which has benefits that range from relieving common aches and pains, including migraines, muscle and joint pain caused by arthritis and certain autoimmune conditions.
