Avoid High Impact Exercise

Different exercises will have a differing impact on the joints. Avoiding activities with high impact such as HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and step classes is the best way to avoid joint pain as they can cause great stress to the joints and carry a high risk of injury.

Focus on Medium-Low Impact Exercises

Stick to exercises you enjoy and don’t exacerbate joint pain! Walking and tennis are great medium-impact exercises while yoga is an excellent form of low-impact exercise.

Wear the Right Shoes

Investing in shock absorbent shoes for when doing medium-impact exercise is a great way to add an extra bit of protection for you and your joints.

Muscle Strengthening Exercises

Joints are massively supported by muscles, so keeping muscles strong protects them from injury, reduces pain and stiffness. For those over 50, it’s very important to add an individual muscle group strengthening exercise to your usual exercise regime.

Pilates, Yoga, Tai-Chi & Resistance Bands

As mentioned above, practicing exercises which strengthen the muscles in a more targeted and soft way significantly reduces risk of falls and protects the joints. Maintaining an active lifestyle in conjunction with taking LQ can improve your quality of life if joint pain and stiffness is getting in the way.
