The cartilage works like a built-in shock absorber for the bony ends and joints of your body. However, ageing, wear and tear, as well as injuries deteriorate the quality of your cartilage, leading to the condition that we know of as osteoarthritis. This health concern usually affects your hands, hips, knees, and even your spine. Symptoms include stiffness in the affected area, loss of physical function, weakness, and pain.
The good news is, there are a number of ways that can help in protecting your body from the perils of osteoarthritis. First, you can maintain the ideal weight. Next, you can load up on antioxidants as these can help in building and repairing your cartilage. Also, you can minimise the consumption of red meat. In addition, you should eat more avocados and soy beans. Another way is to have regular exercise in order to keep your cartilage in excellent condition. Experts also suggest that walking barefoot helps in slowing down the degeneration of your cartilage. And lastly, visit your trusted Gold Coast chiropractor regularly.
