Preventative Measures For Healthy Joints

Over time our bodies remind us we are aging; our joints stiffen and everything aches. Each morning we move our body a little slower to work out the kinks from the previous day's activities.

Unfortunately, there is no proven way to avoid joint pain; however, you can take measures to increase your joint health and slow down the signs of aging. Being proactive is the key to a future with less pain. Don't wait until the pain starts.

Are You At Risk?

The risk of joint pain caused by tendonitis, arthritis, bursitis, gout, meniscus degeneration and more, increases if you have:

  • An injury that has plagued you over time
  • Family history of degenerative joint conditions
  • An injury that has been re-injured or did not heal properly
  • Repetitive stress injury (RSI)
  • Joints that are overused due to your daily work or hobbies

What Can Be Done?

You can take steps to maintain healthier joints by eating a proper diet, strength training and stretching, and with regular Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy.

By taking care of your joints now, you can reduce the risk and prolong the onset of aches and pains in your later years.

Proper Diet

Healthy eating habits including vitamin rich, low fat foods can help maintain your joints in 2 ways. First, by keeping your weight in a healthy range you put less stress on your joints resulting in less wear and tear.

As well, eating foods rich in vitamins A, B6, C, D, E and Omega 3 oils have been found to strengthen cartilage, relieve joint pain and prevent cartilage damage. Speak to your doctor to see which vitamins would best assist you in your joint maintenance program.

Strength And Flexibility

Participating in strength building and flexibility activities can also improve the health of your joints.

Strong muscles and tendons support joints, minimizing daily wear and tear. By improving your body's flexibility you maintain a larger degree of motion in your joints keeping them limber and fluid. Speak to your doctor or physical therapist for strength and flexibility exercises that are suitable for you.

Regular Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy

Nutrients and oxygen are essential for healing throughout your body. These vital elements are transported throughout the body when blood circulates. But your body needs help!

Unfortunately, by design, our joints do not receive adequate blood flow and over time their health degenerates. By increasing the flow of blood to your joints, you can maintain healthier tissue and reduce the risk or prolong the onset of joint degeneration and pain.

By caring for your joints now you will be able to perform the daily tasks that we take for granted well into your later years. An Inferno Wrap™ provides comfortable, easy and effective Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy for your joints.

Getting The Most From Your Inferno Wrap™

Before Exercise

Treat yourself with an Inferno Wrap™ before exercise to warm the tissue and prepare your joints for use. With proper blood flow your tissue is more resistant to tears and pulls, decreasing your chance of injury.

After Activity

When you've had an active day, an Inferno treatment in the evening can repair minor tears that may have occurred from regular use of your joints. Repairing these tears helps avoid a build up of damage over time that can turn into a painful condition.

Daily Maintenance

If your work or hobby puts stress on one of your joints, treat them with care. A regular Inferno treatment in the morning or evening will give you the blood flow stimulation you need to maintain a healthy joint and keep you active for years to come.
