Exercise is an excellent way to tone up and lose weight. Plus, it builds muscle which supports your bones (which helps prevent osteoporosis) and improves your cardiovascular health. However, exercise can also be hard on the joints, often making them stiff or sore after a workout. If joint pain is severe enough, it can keep you from exercising, which negatively affects your health by keeping you from getting the benefits of physical activity. The best course of action is to keep your joints, muscles, ligaments and bones strong and stable. To help lessen and even prevent joint pain, we at Westchester Health recommend these 10 tips to follow before, during and after exercise.
