While some people may believe that exercise can cause problems with joints there really isn’t any concrete evidence to support this idea in general. In fact exercise has so many physical and mental health benefits that they far outweigh the possibility of perhaps sustaining injury during exercise. There are plenty of people who have exercised every day of their lives without suffering joint problems. Some people with weakened muscles may however, experience joint problems. At Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic we can work with you to plan your exercise schedule with a focus on injury or pain prevention.
There are some differing causes of joint pain. Exercise in itself does not cause joint pain but factors such as injury, bursitis and pre-existing conditions such as osteoarthritis need to be managed in order to exercise safely.
There are ways to ease pressure on your joints. Physiotherapy can help in a range of ways.
Keeping active is important for all of us. Exercise in itself does not cause joint problems. If you have an underlying condition however, it is wise to see your physiotherapist before undertaking a new exercise regime. Your joints are designed to move. Keeping them in shape can actually avoid injury. If you do have any joint problems, the experts at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic are here to help and advise you. It is good to remember that, in general, you have more to gain than to lose by keeping fit and active.
