5 Tips for Healthy Joints

5 Tips for Healthy Joints according to Grace Walker, PT, DPT, OTD:

1. Maintain a Healthy WeightSenior couple swimming together with healthy joints

Here at Walker Physical Therapy & Pain Center we offer an optimal health program that helps our patients keep a healthy weight. The higher the number on the scale, the more pressure you put on your joints.

2. Aerobic Exercise

Before starting any exercise program, consult a physical therapist who specializes in exercise for thorough evaluation. Research suggests that aerobic exercise can reduce joint swelling and help lead to healthy joints.

3. Laser for Painful Joints

The 830ML Laser treatment reduces pain, reduces inflammation, and increases tissue healing.

4. Build Muscles to Support Joints

Our FLEX-N-MOVE programs help build muscles and keep your joints strong. Here at Walker Physical Therapy, our physical therapists can show you the proper techniques and exercises that will strengthen the neck, back, knee, and shoulder joints.

5. Core Strengthening

Strong abdominal muscles help you maintain healthy joints and even improve balance.
