Helping Patients Improve Joint Comfort

Joint comfort is a concern for millions of people worldwide. But although many people are unaware, some things can be done that may help improve comfort levels and quality of life. Here are a few ways that we suggest talking to patients to help them better understand what they can do to improve joint comfort.

Discussing Healthy Eating Habits. For many people, joint comfort levels can often be linked to overall health and wellness. Maintaining healthy eating habits can help keep excess weight off joints and may improve joint comfort.

  • Watching what they eat. As you know, keeping an eye on the foods entering the body plays a significant role in the health and fitness. Recommend a healthy diet plan based on your patient’s needs.
  • Watching when they eat. Late night snacking may lead to digestion issues and weight gain over time. Patients should refrain from eating within 2 hours of bedtime.
  • Staying hydrated. The truth is that many people simply do not drink enough water. Maintaining proper hydration in the body affects the way we feel head to toe.

Recommending Low-Impact Activities. In addition to eating correctly, it is important for patients to maintain a level a regular physical activity. Not only does this help the patient manage their weight, but it is also good to work the joints through low-impact activities.

  • Walking. Walking is fantastic. It can be virtually anywhere, anytime, but many people still do not get enough steps in the day. Suggest to your patient that they schedule time each day to go for a walk or set timers throughout the day to step away from their desk.
  • Cycling. Whether on a stationary bike or cycling around town, this low-impact activity can help patients work their joints without the harsh impact.
  • Water Aerobics. Water provides a fantastic opportunity for people with joint discomfort to get activity. A group class or simply walking laps in the pool can help immensely.
  • Yoga. Yoga has gained popularity exponentially over the past ten years because of its incredible mental and physical health benefits.

Talking About Rest and Recovery. Activity and nutrition are both important, but so is recovery. Taking an active approach toward rest and recovery as opposed to simply sitting on the couch can make a substantial difference.

  • Rest. Setting aside 8 hours per night for sleep is the first major step to take toward rest and recovery. Help your patient understand the importance for the entire body to get a good night’s sleep.
  • Recovery. Taking time to recover isn’t always on someone’s mind. Suggest methods such as icing or using a heat source to help improve joint comfort and recovery.

When striving to improve joint comfort, make sure your patient understands the importance to take care of the body. No matter how small the concern may be, taking steps now can make a substantial difference in the future. We also recommend UC-II® to help improve joint comfort with your patients. Research shows that just 40 mg of UC-ll® supports joint health, flexibility, and mobility. Learn more about UC-II® on our website or by calling 1-800-783-4636 today.
