Orthopedic Health And How It Relates To Your Diet

Your Diet plays an important role in your orthopedic health. The first thing that normally comes to your mind when you think about foods that strengthen your musculoskelital system is probably milk. It isn’t just about dairy, though. While milk is an incredibly efficient way to get your daily calcium intake, there are plenty of other foods to incorporate into your diet for overall bone health.  Diet and nutrition play a key role in bone health and can help you avoid osteoperosis, fractures and much more.

Get Up And Move

Turn off the tube. Television not only keeps you sedentary, which slows your metabolism, it also makes you prone to overeating. Read a good book instead, or better yet, pop on those cross trainers and hit the road.

Build strong bones. Boost your calcium intake, because a diet rich in this important mineral helps to keep your bones sturdy and can lower your risk of osteoporosis (the brittle bone disease). There are plenty of sources besides milk, including yogurt, broccoli, kale, figs, salmon and calcium supplements.
