Risk Factors

There are many factors that contribute to joint injuries, which can be categorized into two groups, extrinsic and intrinsic factors:

Exercise Regularly

Low-impact exercises like walking and swimming can strengthen the muscles around the joints, which provide them with better support and stability. Just take some times in your lives, such as 30 minutes of exercise every day to keep your joints flexible and strong. It can also improve your mood.

Take Rest

Rest is an integral part of life. If you feel that you are tired or exhausted, stop what you are doing and go sit or lie down. Let your joints rest for a while. Proper relaxation can promote recovery.

As people age, the knees and ankles become crucial areas that require special attention for the elderly. Falling is a common and dangerous occurrence for them, which often results in pain and fractures.

To prevent and protect against such incidents, we recommend hinged knee braces, such as the Fivali Adjustable Hinged Knee Brace 1 Pack FKH03. This knee brace features sturdy metal side supports that greatly enhance knee stability. For ankle protection, we suggest the Fivali Ankle Stabilizer Brace 1 Pack FAH02, which comes with protective panels and compression straps on both sides to secure the ankle joint and restrict movement within a certain range.

Invest in Supportive Footwear

Well-fitting shoes can provide adequate cushioning, support, and stability to your joints. They help absorb shock and reduces the impact during daily activities or exercise.

Balanced Diet

Maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet is helpful to keep joints healthy. Include foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids (found in fish, chia seeds, and walnuts), antioxidants (found in fruits and vegetables), and calcium (found in dairy products and leafy greens) to support joint function and reduce inflammation.

 

Wish all the mothers live a happy life with healthy joints. Happy Mother's Day! Your love, dedication, and well-being matter, and we celebrate you always.
