How to Reduce the Risk of Osteoarthritis

 

7.Do Activities the Right Way

Whether it’s swinging a golf club, playing the piano, or running the 100-yard dash, there’s a correct style to follow. Bad technique is a common cause of overuse injury. Even a small error in form can cause problems. Trainers, coaches, teachers, and physical therapists can help make sure you’re doing things in a way that’s less likely to cause injury.

8.Warm Up

Before you do something physical, whether it’s an all-out game of flag football or just a quiet round of golf, it’s a good idea to loosen up your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints, to make them harder to injure. Walk, run in place, or do some jumping jacks. All it takes is 5-10 minutes — a small price to pay to avoid hurting yourself.
