As the means by which we are able to move, joints are essential to the active functioning of our bodies.

Joints bear the weight placed on them and allow for a full range of motion. Joints are made up of at least two bone surfaces, aided by muscles, tendons, ligaments and cartilage.

The most commonly-injured joints are those involved with the knees, shoulders, ankles and spine. A joint can be injured via abnormal or excessive movement from one single traumatic incident, or via repetitive stress injuries.

You can help prevent repetitive stress injuries. Ways to do so include:

  • Avoiding maintaining any certain posture for an extended period of time during activities.
  • Using your largest muscles when doing activities like lifting heavy objects.
  • Stopping yourself from placing extreme stress on any joint for a significant amount of time.
  • Some research shows that certain vitamins and supplements can help in improving our body’s ability to heal.
  • Proper amounts of sleep, sleep positions, healthy diets, lifestyle choices and water intake all affect our joints.
