Strength training for healthier joints

Bulk up. Strength training is the best way to boost your metabolism (and get a sleeker bod, too). Research also shows lifting weights creates denser bones and builds stronger muscles that help stabilize and protect joints.

Develop abs of steel. Strong abs are essential to creating overall core strength and balance. Studies show that improving strength and balance are key to preventing falls and protecting joints from damage.   

Even more things you can do to relieve joint strain

Handling heavy loads. To make heavy loads easier to handle, use your largest, strongest joints and muscles to take stress off smaller hand joints and to spread the load over large surface areas. When you lift or carry items, use the palms of both hands or use your arms instead of your hands. Hold items close to your body, which is less stressful for your joints. For joint safety, slide objects whenever possible rather than lift them.

Getting you back on your feet after surgery

It may come as a surprise to you that total joint replacement patients are encouraged to get up and start moving around as soon as possible after surgery — as early as the day of surgery. When you are medically stable, the physical therapist will recommend certain exercises for the affected joint. Physical therapy is a key part of recovery. To ease the discomfort the activity will initially cause, pain medication is recommended prior to therapy. In addition, the physical therapist will discuss plans for rehabilitation following hospital discharge.

Joint Pain Shouldn't Slow You Down

The joints in your body are involved in every activity that you do.
Simple movements such as walking, bending, and turning require the use
of hip and knee joints and normally all of these joints work together
and move without pain, but when the joint becomes injured or diseased,
the resulting pain can severely limit your ability to move and work.
Whether you're considering a total replacement of your joints, or just
beginning to explore treatment, OMNI is here to help you. Our website
