There are 208 bones in the human body and 143 joints. If any of these weaken, your body’s mechanics can be thrown out of balance, affecting your overall physical health. For this reason, it is important that you pay as much attention to your bone health as you do to the rest of our health.
Most bone problems are a result of improper joint mechanics. Like a car part that’s not installed correctly, the spine will wear out much faster if all the parts are not properly connected. It’s the same thing with our joints. Unlike a car, we can’t replace our parts!! So, it’s all about prevention, maintaining and achieving optimal function of the spine and joints.
Osteoarthritis is a condition in which low-grade inflammation results in pain in the joints caused by the wear and tear of the cartilage that covers and cushions the joints. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. Basically, it is the wear and tear on the spine and joints and, in most cases caused, by overuse or improper joint mechanics.
