Osteoarthritis is the form of arthritis that occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of bones wears down with the passage of time. The most common disorders of Osteoarthritis include damaging hands joints, knees joints, hips, and spine. Staying fit can be a challenge in osteoarthritis. There are many activities that can help in curing osteoarthritis. One great activity that really helps in osteoarthritis is Swimming and Shilajit.
Water exercise is one of the best forms of exercise for people with osteoarthritis. It addresses every aspect of the symptoms of this illness, from inflexibility to pain to bone density. Even though water exercises do not help build bone density quite as effectively as weight bearing exercise on land, they do help. Additionally, you will feel so much better from your water workouts that you will be able to participate more fully in other types of exercise.
Having own pool is a great advantage in maintaining an excellent level of fitness. Be sure to keep the water warm enough to really help with muscle, tendon and joint aches and pains. A standard pool heater or a solar pool heater can really help in this matter. If you do not have your own pool, there are lots of options available. Visit your local community pool, college pool, or university pool. People can also join a health club that offers pool and spa facilities. This is a great way to rest, relax and get good exercise all in one trip.
Many of aforementioned facilities offer water aerobics classes to help people in gaining full health advantages from water exercises. You will be surprised at the excellent, sweat free workout you can get while supported on all sides by water. Getting gentle, supported exercise every day is key to staying flexible and reducing the pain of osteoarthritis.
You can enjoy fun workouts by walking, skipping and jumping in the shallower end of the pool. Build up to in-water running, and try running into the deep water and then plunging in to swim to the end of the pool. This kind of free form exercise is fun and exhilarating and is the in-water version of interval training.
The lap swimming is tough for osteoarthritis. Try walking laps in the shallow part of the pool and paddling around a bit to help get your muscles and your entire body used to more exercise. You may want to take advantage of a kick-board or similar flotation device for support. If you do not swim with your head under the water, a snorkel can help you breathe without turning your head. This is a good idea if you experience a lot of neck pain.
Beside water sports, we also need good food that can help in making our bones strong and healthy. Instead of looking many recipes, one good way of making bones strong and muscles healthy is using Shilajit. Shilajit has around 80+ minerals with many of them useful for bones and muscles. Make sure to use only natural, pure, and gold grade Shilajit. Not every Shilajit is natural. People add additives to make new products of Shilajit. We don’t recommend such experiments of a nature’s miracle. Not every Shilajit is pure. Many Shilajit sellers don’t care about the impurities found in natural Shilajit. And lastly, not every Shilajit is Gold grade. Only Shilajit from highest altitudes with better echo system are found in Gold grade condition. Himalayan Shilajit form Himalayan Healing is extracted from above 16000 feet altitude, purified with best filtering systems, and is sold in its natural form (no experiments). Make a wise decision to make good health.
