Joint Pain Relief and Joint Ventures reports 2 of 3, 80min.
Every mechanical object has a weak link, the one area that wears out over time and causes the mechanism to be prone to breakage. A good case can be made that, in the human body, our joints and the surrounding soft tissue are our weakest links.
The Toll of Joint Pain
Indeed, joint pain affects tens of millions of Americans. According to the Arthritis Foundation, over 1.3 million people suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, while another 27 million experience the pain associated with osteoarthritis. And everyone from fitness buffs to weekend warriors to professional athletes can attest to the toll that sports can take on joint health.
Knees are Vulnerable
Our knees are especially vulnerable to injury. If done to excess, running and other kinds of exercise can easily lead to kneecap pain or to pain where the quadriceps connects to the kneecap. Injuries to the cartilage and ligaments on the outside of the knee are common, as are muscular sprains and strains.
The Angst of Ankles and Shoulders
As with knees, our ankles are extremely vulnerable to injury. Strains and sprains are common, and are often caused by a simple twist or turn of the ankle. Likewise, there are dozens of shoulder injuries, from rotator cuff injuries to dislocation, that are extraordinarily painful and that can adversely impact a person’s quality of life.
Elbows and Wrists
Elbow injuries are common to weekend athletes. There’s tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow, and thrower’s elbow, as well as a variety of kinds of ligament sprains. Even desk jockeys can feel the burn in their wrists, as carpal tunnel syndrome affects millions of people.
Strengthening Our Weakest Links
If joints are our body’s weakest links, it’s critical that we work to ensure that they are in working order. When it comes to joint health, the first step to take is to get high quality, safe, and effective nutrients that specifically support our joints and the soft tissue surrounding our joints. Whether we’re in our athletic prime or are feeling the effects of getting a bit older, taking supplements that are specifically designed to enhance our joint health simply makes sense.
Products that Help
When it comes to a nutritional product that supports joint health, look for one that includes glycine and histidine, amino acids that promote neuromuscular control and that maintain flexible joints. Boron is also crucial, as it helps maximize bone health through the increased retention of calcium and magnesium.
For those people who regularly work out, a nutritional supplement that contains glucosamine is critical. Sports injuries are most often the result of damage to the connective tissue around the joints, and glucosamine helps to ensure that the connective tissue remains healthy. Similarly, natural anti-inflammatory compounds like bromelain and boswellia further support quick recovery from a workout and the health of joints and soft tissues.
Our joints may be the body’s weak link, but using targeted nutrients can help us strengthen that link and ensure that our joints and soft tissues will continue to serve us for years to come.
How to Live With Joint Pain.
No one I know enjoys joint pain. I guess as we get older we feel that chronic dull aching in the joints just “comes with the territory”. This doesn’t have to be so. There are some ways that you can manage your joint pain.
You can have joint pain for many different reasons, a trauma to a specific area of the body, such as knee or elbow, a strain from lifting a heavy object, sleeping on a poor mattress, sitting slumped in a chair, or bad posture in general can cause joint pain. Perhaps you do some sort of repetitive movement every day, perhaps associated with your job, such as cashiering. Any repetitive motion can exacerbate joint pain. Joint pain felt in the wrist due to repetitive motion is called carpal tunnel syndrome.
There are over 100 different forms of arthritis. The joint pain associated with arthritis affects millions of Americans. Osteoarthritis is known in the medical community as the “wear and tear” arthritis. Osteoarthritis, or degenerative joint disease, is generally caused by injury or occupation, excess weight and genetics. Osteoarthritis causes the cartilage of a joint to wear away. Rheumatoid arthritis is aggressive and causes joint damage and joint deformity.
Fibromyalgia is a condition where people experience body aches and pains, extreme fatigue, depression and sleep problems. Fibromyalgia suffers may also have tenderness in specific muscles on the body.
There are some ways to help alleviate your joint pain. The first is to listen to your body and be aware of what causes you pain, and avoid those activities. Do not remain in one position for a long period of time, this causes stiffness. If you can sit to perform a task it is better than standing. Sitting helps take weight off your hips and knees. If you have pain in the fingers or hands try to avoid activities where you grip your fingers and avoid twisting or squeezing with your hands.
If applicable to your condition use an orthopedic support. Supports are available for most areas of the body, ankle, arm, elbow, knee, back, and wrist. Heat and ice applied to joints can help alleviate pain. A program of regular stretching exercises would help joint pain. Mild exercise is good for joint pain as it helps prevent muscle atrophy around the joint. It would be best to learn these from a licensed physical therapist. A physical therapist can also help you to learn proper body mechanics when sitting, standing, or stooping which can help relieve joint pain.
How to Use Joint Ventures to Boost Your Business.
Did you know that joint ventures can dramatically increase your income in very little time? And, if they are done right, they can even be fun? 🙂
What’s a joint venture?
In a nutshell, it’s a partnership between two (or more) businesses that creates a win-win scenario for all. For example, joining together to offer a conference to your target market, or collaborating on a teleseminar series to offer to both your audiences. It could be something as simple as a cross-promotion of products, where each of your products complements the other.
There are three key benefits to pursuing joint ventures:
1. You can strengthen your relationship with your current clients and customers by offering them something new and of value.
2. You can leverage your time and talent by promoting someone else’s offerings (while they promote yours) while still adding to your bottom line.
3. You can leave the lone ranger behind and add to your own body of knowledge and expertise by learning new ways to create and deliver your material by working with a partner.
Approach potential joint venture partners only after you’ve gotten to know them a bit through their work. Once you’ve been able to discern that a win-win relationship could be created, make certain you have an idea to offer to them that answers the question of “what’s in it for them?”
