How to keep your
joints healthy as you age
Aging is an inevitable part of life that we all have to face but what does this mean for your joints?
As you get older, cartilage undergoes more wear and tear, inflammation occurs in the joints and youalso tend to lose muscle mass.
The body’s natural shock absorbers wear out and you begin feeling more of the physical toll on your body.
Movement of the joints becomes stiffer and less flexible and ligaments also tend to shorten and lose some flexibility, making joints feel stiff.
The Aging Body
In a joint, bones are cushioned by cartilage which is a rubber-like connective tissue.
Cartilage cushions joints and makes movements easier and more fluid, but over time, it begins to wear away.
A membrane called the synovium produces a lubricating liquid that helps keep the cartilage healthy and helps joints move more efficiently.
As you age, joints lose lubrication from deteriorating cartilage and synovium. The more the bones begin to rub against each other they cause pain and inflammation in the joints and surrounding tissue, eventually leading to the development of thick bone spurs.
People with aging and taxed joints will experience stiffness, strains, sprains, aches and weaknesses in their joints.
The Dangers of drugs
Typical treatment for joint pain would be the common over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen.
Not only do these medications have serious negative side effects in the stomach and intestinal tract, but NSAIDs may actually accelerate the progression of joint destruction.
