3 steps to healthier joints

3 step action plan

Keep your joints in a healthy condition with our 3 step action plan.

A joint is part of the body where two, or more, bones meet. Also called an articulation, one of the main functions of our joints is to allow movement.

Because our joints are integral to keep us moving, keeping them healthy is essential to maintain everything from doing daily tasks like the grocery shopping to training for a fun run.

Injuries, excess weight and getting older can all pose a risk to the health of our joints. And while getting older is beyond our control there are steps we can take to help keep our joints in a healthy condition.

Sign-up to our 3 step Action plan to help keep your joints healthy and get moving on the path to better health today.

Can't start this at present, had a fall and pulled the muscles in the groin. Also on a Lactose and Frutose Free diet so probably much of the foods would not be suitable.
