Understanding Osteoarthritis



  • Maintain a Healthy Weight – This can relieve some pressure on weight-bearing joints like the knees and hips and reduces the risk of osteoarthritis. Healthy diet combined with exercise works best.

  • Exercise Regularly – This helps to protect joints by strengthening the muscles around them and keep the muscles and tendon flexible. Furthermore, exercise helps to control your weight and helps you feel better overall.

  • Supplement with Joint Health Nutrients – As the risk of osteoarthritis increases with age, ageing adults are recommended to take joint health supplements such as glucosamine and chondroitin regularly to help prevent the onset and progression of osteoarthritis.
